Video Interviews: A #CMWorld Twitter Chat with Emilie Moreland

Believe it or not, some companies are hiring despite the economic downturn. But in this time of social distancing, organizations are making the switch from in-person interviews to video. To help us navigate the challenges of virtual interviews, we asked Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Content Manager Emilie Moreland for advice.

If your job has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic or if you’re looking to pivot your career, you undoubtedly are coping with uncertainty right now. Emilie has conducted dozens of video interviews and shares her thoughts on honing your virtual interview skills. Thanks to Emilie and the #CMWorld Twitter chat community for participating.

Video interviews give a unique opportunity to show your personality, home, or home office. What liberties could we take? What should we avoid?

Conversely, how can interviewers know they’ve found the best candidate when their only interaction is on a screen? How will managers know they’ll be a good fit?
