Remote interviews can be an effective way to screen candidates. They could even possibly replace phone interviews. They also serve as an easy alternative if meeting in person for an interview is challenging because of scheduling conflicts or other reasons—for example, interviewing a candidate who currently resides in another city.

Remote interviews are convenient and advantageous for organizations. They can help you add a new element to your hiring process. If you haven’t integrated them already, give it some serious thought to adding remote interviews to your hiring process post-pandemic.
