Spelman Johnson’s Virtual Interview Guide

Category: Search Process

Video conferencing with multiple participants, across multiple remote locations, will be essential to moving searches forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the dynamics of these video conversations are significantly different from the more traditional video interviews in which committee members are all in the same room.

It is important to remember that the organization is represented in all interactions with candidates, and putting the best foot forward is part of selling the opportunity to highly qualified candidates.
