    Time Management
  • There’s no need to take time off from your existing role – you can record your interview in your own time
  • Travel Flexibility
  • No travel required for the first stage of the interviewing process
  • Cultural Awareness
  • It allows you to see the company’s culture, especially if they provide an intro video
  • Rehearsals
  • Opportunity to rehearse prior to starting the interview and record each question one at a time
  • Personal Statements
  • You get to create a personal statement
  • Candidate Fairness
  • It’s a fairer process – all candidates at this stage get asked the same questions as you and have the same amount of time to answer
  • Mobile Accessibility
  • You can record your interview from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer! (As long as it has a webcam of course)
