The crisis has forced companies to renew their approach and turn towards digital technology
We come to ask ourselves the question of the efficiency of the traditional system: Why should employees have to fly when videoconferencing is available and cheaper? Wouldn’t it be easier for a job seeker to conduct a video interview? Everyone should ask themselves these questions and act accordingly, as have large companies such as the major investment bank J.P. Morgan, Twitter, Amazon and others, who have chosen to have their employees work from home. Google, for example, has informed job seekers that “in light of COVID-19, all interviews in the world will be conducted virtually via Google Hangout”. The crisis has forced companies to renew their approach and turn towards digital technology, which has been offering cheaper and more efficient means for years. Communication streams can rely these days on Google Hangouts, Zoom or Teams for video interviews, online conferences, and meetings.
