A face-to-face interview is often the ideal scenario when you’re interviewing for a new job. However, it’s not always possible or practical, and sometimes you just don’t have a choice. Many interviews today are conducted over the phone, while others use video. Phone interviews are often used as a first-round screening, followed up by a face-to-face interview if you’re successful. Video interviews can feel almost like face-to-face interviews if they’re live, but they can also involve recording your answers.
