CAREER ENHANCEMENT AT HOME SERIES: Brush up on your online interviewing skills

I hope everyone is safe, staying in and following government guidance around the COVID-19.

With more and more uncertainty surrounding the current restrictions in place, there is obviously a big impact on graduate recruitment.

Many graduate recruiters have withdrawn from their normal, face to face, recruitment practices. They are following government guidelines on social distancing and working from home etc. We are hearing from many of the graduate recruiters that they still intend to recruit, their practices are changing. They are moving as many of their selection stages online as possible. There are more online Interviews and assessments taking place, we anticipate this to grow even further over the coming months.

I thought it would be useful to direct you to some resources we have at Hope which can help you to prepare for online selection processes.
