If you are looking for your next job at the present time, chances are your interview or interviews will be happening online.
I’ve even had clients who have had to do a full assessment day online via Zoom.
Now if all of your past experience has been doing job interviews face to face, the online job interview can come as a bit of a shock.
When something is new or maybe unfamiliar, it tends to result in us over thinking things.
Worrying about it excessively and even creating more stress and anxiety.
But the question I have is whether online job interviews are really more difficult?
My view is that there are pros and cons with both face to face and face and online job interviews.
In addition there are some things that are similar no matter how the interview is carried out.
What’s the pros and cons of the face to face job interview?
What’s the pros and cons of the remote job interview?
What’s the similarities whether face to face or an online job interview?
- You have to be well prepared if you are going to perform well.
- You have to promote, sell yourself and demonstrate that you can do the job and fit in.
- You have to keep the job interview in perspective to help you manage your nerves.
Job interviews are and should be tough. While online job interviews present different challenges, they are not in my experience and client experiences more difficult.
