Pre-Recorded Interview = No Problem

pre-recorded interviews & insights

As companies adjust their hiring processes to be more efficient, more and more candidates are getting requests for pre-recorded interviews.

This transition is almost always, “Tell me a little about yourself.” This question is so vague and, in turn, stressful. There’s a methodology that you should follow when you craft, practice, and execute the perfect Tell-Me-About-Yourself answer.
