What is a One-Way Interview?


A One-Way Interview is a video interview in which a job seeker answers a company's interview questions on video.

The interview is asynchronous meaning the job seeker does the interview on their own time.

This is a great opportunity for job seekers to separate themselves from the other candidates applying for the position. It's a chance for the job seeker to put their best foot forward and show what makes them right for the job. Plus, it's super convenient!
