Would You Interview For a Job on Skype?

Oct 24 2009 - 1:13pm

If you ask me, using Skype for dating [1] is one thing, but using it for a job interview is something entirely different. But now, employers are turning to Skype [2] as a cost-cutting interview tool. Instead of flying prospective candidates for in-person meetings, some companies are using the video-chatting software to narrow the list to a few finalists.

Even though I'd get to interview at home — in slippers and sweat pants if I wanted to, I'm not sure I'd be comfortable using Skype to meet a potential employer. I think you can learn more about a new job and work environment from inside the office, not from behind a computer screen. What do you think?
