Those applying for jobs using a one-way video interview can use a variety of techniques to make their response videos more attractive, writes Joseph Barber. The author suggests that applicants figure out how many retakes are allowed and how long they have to answer each question. Barber explains that the applicant’s sound, lighting, background, and ambiance is part of their first impression, and suggests that applicants make any necessary changes to their environment. The author encourages applicants to visualize the hiring team to make up for the lack of human feedback, and to bring positive energy and excitement to the interview. Finally, Barber suggests that applicants take the time to thoroughly prepare in order to be able to provide answers to questions within the time limit. Inside Higher Ed (Editorial)
