About this event

As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced most of us to work from home or remotely, we are having to move all kinds of face-to-face gatherings online, from training workshops to team meetings to board meetings. Even job interviews.

For many global companies, doing interviews, at least partially, remotely is nothing new and it will continue to be an important part of their hiring process. So, how do you ace an online interview?

▪️ What do (tech) companies expect?
▪️ What things do you need to consider beforehand that you wouldn’t think about for an offline interview?
▪️ What to do during the interview?
▪️ What do interviewers hope to see?

Join our online meetup with two Google Recruiters as they share their experience and top tips on how to prepare for any remote interview.
