Title:  CDP - Video Interview Clinic
Speaker: Mr Andrew McGregor

Employers across the globe are increasingly turning to online and video formats in their recruitment processes. The adoption of these methods means a greater number of candidates can be assessed, as they often mean the use of technologies that filter and sort application based on a variety of data points.
One method being widely used in major banks, financial services and consulting is the video interview. These interviews may be live or recorded, but most are processed through technology that ensures high levels of analysis and rigour, not to mention elimination of human bias.
Successfully preparing a video application or response is a key skill for new graduates and future job seekers. This clinic allowed students to prepare a video using typical questions from online recruitment. Together with two peers and our trainer then reviewed each other’s video, provided feedback for improvement and review tips for future success.
