The shift to virtual work environments also called a change to how employers conducted their recruiting practices. Almost all companies, made a switch to virtual interviewing to hire their staff. As we come out of the pandemic, here is why the practices for virtual interviewing are here to stay:
- No Barriers to Location
Talent Pools have increased in size because there is no limitation of where an individual must be to apply to a position. This is especially true if the position is fully remote. With an increase in talent pool, employers can fill a position faster with reduced turn over.
- Increased Accessibility
Employers can now conduct a whole day of interviews without spillover. With no need of booking meeting rooms, work for the rest of the company also doesn’t get impacted.
- Budget Friendly
Virtual Interviewing is also easier on the budget. You don’t have to expense travel for candidates and don’t have to devote a whole day of resources to interview one candidate.
OSPE’s Job Search Workshop, Acing your In-Person and Virtual Interview is a great free resource to members where they can learn how to give an effective interview with all the constraints of the virtual world.
