How to prepare
Whilst the practical side of a video interview is very different to being interviewed in person, the preparation you can do beforehand will be the same. The interview will still consist of a series of competency based questions, which you’ll need to answer using appropriate examples from your university/work/voluntary experience.
We have lots of resources available to help you prepare:
