What is a One-Way Interview?

You’ve probably gone through the standard interview process - sitting in an office and answering questions from potential employers. But have you ever heard of a one-way interview? It’s become increasingly popular with employers, so it’s important to understand what it is and how it works. Let’s break down the basics of a one-way interview.

How Does a One-Way Interview Work?

A one-way interview is actually quite simple. Instead of interviewing in person, you will record yourself answering pre-set questions and then submit your video or audio recordings as part of your application. This allows recruiters to get to know you better without having to lug you into their office for a face-to-face meeting. 


What Are the Benefits of Taking a One-Way Interview?

For starters, one-way interviews can save both employers and job seekers time and money by eliminating the need for an in-person interview. They also allow candidates to show off their communication skills, which can be difficult to do over email or phone calls; after all, body language tells us almost as much about someone as words do! Additionally, this type of format can give potential candidates more confidence when answering questions since they don’t have to worry about being judged by someone else in real-time. Finally, one-way interviews give employers flexibility when viewing applicants; they can watch your recordings at any time instead of having to schedule an appointment with each candidate.

Overall, one-way interviews are becoming increasingly popular among employers and job seekers alike. By understanding what these interviews entail and how they work, you can be prepared if an employer asks you to participate in one - while also gaining some insight into how the recruitment process has changed over the years! Good luck with your one-way interview journey!

Until next time!
