Meet our team as we Flip the Script

CoVid has robbed us of that “skin-factor” – the feeling you get when you meet someone for the first time. Meeting someone in person is always more interesting than over a telephone call or via email.

For our health and yours, our team still prefers to interview applicants over MS Teams or Zoom, and because we spend most of our time getting to know you, we thought we’d flip the script and tell you more about us.

10 Tips on How to Master the Art of the Video Interview

For several months in 2020, face to face meetings were not permitted (well at least not during the L5 and L4 lockdown periods).

Virtual interviews have become increasingly popular over the years, but this is yet another stage in the recruitment process that has changed drastically due to the pandemic. After conducting thousands of hours of video interviews in the last 18 months, we noticed a few trouble spots.

Applicants don’t realise the importance of proper planning for a video interview.

It’s no longer only about rehearsing possible answers to potential interview questions. To ensure that applicants make the best first impression, they have to understand this new “interview environment” and prepare and practice their delivery BEFORE the interview date.

We have created a Virtual Interview Cheat Sheet to help you carry out our interview with ease and confidence.
