Interviewing On Skype - Part 2
The conclusion of our guidance on how to interview when the interview is conducted over Skype.
We have been getting questions about Skype interviews for some time, and the incidence of this type of interview will only get more frequent as time goes on. Whilst tele-conference interviews never became as common as was predicted – it was much harder to schedule and the technology was and remained much more expensive than expected – Skype is cheaper and easier to use. In addition, most of us have a computer at home which will run Skype, and most of us have webcams. Therefore, companies can expect the interviewee to have the requisite equipment at home, and that requesting a Skype interview doesn't cause an unnecessary burden.
