Virtual interviews are becoming more common. There are two different types: asynchronous and synchronous. An asynchronous interview, or a pre-recorded interview, is when you answer prompted questions - you usually have a few days to do this. Some softwares used include HireVue and TopPick. Synchronous interviews are when you interview with a member of the HR team in real-time, this may be on Zoom or Google Meet. Essentially the expectations and recommendations to prepare are not different than in-person interviews. Below we have compiled recommendations based on recruiter's tips from the Brooklyn Navy Yard as well as our own.
