Times have changed and video interviewing has taken the world by storm. Between 2010 and 2012, the use of video interviewing raised by about a third. Since then, it’s only been getting more popular.

In 2015, just over three-quarters of job-seekers are already in full-time employment, and many face difficulties finding a time at which they can interview.
