Video Interview Considerations and Etiquette

Check out this video from Alaant’s Miriam Dushane, as she discusses virtual video job interview etiquette. From safety to professionalism, and key considerations.

Let's talk about video interviews! More importantly some considerations and etiquette related to them.

Embracing virtual interviews has significantly streamlined the recruitment process.

It's now feasible to conduct initial and even follow-up interviews remotely, provided you have access to a smartphone. 

However, this doesn't mean that you should conduct an interview while driving. 

While we recognize that candidates might face constraints when scheduling such meetings during a workday, it's perfectly acceptable to take a call from your vehicle, provided you're not in motion! 

Be sure to notify the meeting coordinator if you'll be joining from your car. Ensure your vehicle is parked, ideally in a quiet or a more private location, and that your camera is angled to present a professional view of your face and upper body.

Approach these meetings with the same seriousness as in-person interactions: stay focused, be prepared, and prioritize safety.

For employers, it's vital to acknowledge that many prospective hires are currently employed and might have limited availability for virtual interviews. Exhibiting flexibility and understanding their effort to connect during breaks or outside standard working hours can be beneficial. 

It’s OK they are in their car as long as they are focused on the meeting with you.
