Digital is the New Normal
Once you have your resume in order and you are applying, don’t be surprised to find out that the recruitment process is different than you remember it. Even before COVID-19, more and more companies were turning to digital ways to screen candidates. Be prepared for one-way video interviews, online tests, and multiple rounds of live video interviews. With limited in-person interaction, technology is our best tool to bridge the gap.
Remember that you are not just being considered for the skills you have but for your attitude, behavior, and cultural fit. According to some experts, depending on the industry and position, you should expect to spend a minimum of 5 hours interviewing with a company. With so many hours of video interviews ahead of you, make sure you are ready.
