As of today, almost 70% of grad recruiters have changed their in-person recruitment to video interviews and activities.
The trend towards video interviews has been on the rise over the last few years, with the current COVID-19 situation now making it standard practice. Our team at Career Accelerator wants you to be prepared, in the comfort of your own online home. How? Through our video interview workshop, which will not only arm you with new interview skills, but will give you the chance to put them into practice in a video interview competition (with a special industry mentoring prize up for grabs!)
