Why Video Interviews are so Important

Most candidates today are familiar with online job applications and have a general comfort level with online job applications. Now it is commonplace for some of the initial interview process to be conducted using video.

This presentation, at the Mountainside Public Library, helps candidates prepare for video interviews. It discusses the different types of video interviews (with a human and with a machine) and provides tips that assist the candidates to present themselves in the best manner.

The presentation also shares examples of candidates answering questions in a mock interview. These questions will allow candidates to see real-life examples of how various questions can be answered. These questions include:  What are your strengths? Why are you interested in this position? What kind of money are you looking for? What will you do in the first 90 days after you are hired? How would you rate yourself from a 1 to 10?  What is your management style?

During this session, you will:

  • Learn about best posture, ideal body language and overall demeanor.
  • Understand how to manage the lighting and background.
  • Determine best method for using a headset and/or audio needs.
  • Learn general do’s and don’ts regarding wardrobe selection.

This program is free and open to the public. RSVP TO THE MOUNTAINSIDE PUBLIC LIBRARY by phone: 908-233-0115.

Connect with the libraries’ Career Networking Group on LinkedIn, Career Networking Group at SPPL.
