Our state-of-the-art center provides a comprehensive career development, corporate recruiting and academic internship programs.
video calling extends global reach of job hunters
Judy Clare, director of Bryant's Amica Center for Career Education, recently discussed the growing importance of video interviews for students and employers.
About 10 percent of the students working through the center use video calling for employment interviews, she told the Providence Journal, and is particularly useful for students who are studying overseas. “Some employers are hesitant at first, but when they try it, they love it,” Clare said.
Enough job applicants are using Skype or other video chats, such as Apple’s FaceTime, that Bryant has sent out a list of guidelines, including:
- Practice a few days before the interview until you feel comfortable.
- Use lamp lighting and not overhead lighting, and do not sit in front of a window or any bright light.
- Dress professionally, as you would for any interview.
Our internship and recruiting programs are the ideal avenue for organizations seeking to recruit top talent.
We are committed to working with you whether you are just starting out, assessing your next step, or interested in mentoring students.
