Navigating the One-Way Virtual Interview with Jeremy Tolan from Spark Hire
Show Notes Chapter Markers

More and more companies are moving toward video, one-way interviews as a way to screen their applicants initially. 

I’m talking with Jeremy Tolan, Partnership Manager at Spark Hire. Spark Hire’s video interviewing platform is used by over 6,000 of the world’s top organizations. As an active job seeker, you must be familiar with and know how to navigate the one-way interview to tell your story better and answer their questions more directly. Once you successfully navigate this experience, you will have a better chance of moving on to the next round of interviews. 

 

Jeremy and I talk about how job interviews have changed during the pandemic, the future of virtual interviewing, and his best tips for helping you do better at these one-way interviews.
