Video interviews are a popular recruitment tool across the public and private sector. Creating your CV snapshot can be daunting but practice makes perfect. Follow our tips to put your mind at ease and differentiate yourself against the competition.
When filming your video, it's important that you stay on track. Review the questions that are going to be asked and write down three bullet points of what you'd like to say. You will be less likely to forget some of the important points you'd like to make.
By preparing your answers, you will make the best use of the time you have available to complete the question. Some employers may not communicate how much time you'll have so try to keep your answers around 30 seconds long.

There are some typical questions that you will be asked during the video profile process. Check out our short video below which takes you through some typical interview questions and what you can include in your answers.
