Course Description

Now more than ever people are working remotely from home, co-working space, library or even the local coffee shop. Technology has made it possible where the virtual office is now a reality. The rise of freelancing and short-term contract work has also made remote work mainstream.

In addition, many people are now seeking to relocate to other areas. Some may be new college graduates or seasoned workers willing to make a change. These individuals participate in screening interviews with potential employers for places they wish to move to. People now switch jobs an average of three years. People will have several careers before they reach retirement. Much of this will mean relocating for new opportunities

The rise in remote work and factors in career transition have also given rise to something else: the virtual job interview. Employers now have the ability to interview and screen applicants through video conference and video chat. It is no longer necessary to make a long trip to meet with prospective employers. Busy small businesses also have the flexibility of doing remote and virtual interviews at their convenience.
