Hello, I'm Charles Galbreath, workforce empowerment speaker and human resource professional. Today, I want to share with you some of the disadvantages of on line job interviewing. Now it can be very convenient for you to conduct an on line interview. I mean you can interview someone from across the country or in another country and that can be very convenient. But lets talk about some of the things that are lost when you have that on line interview. First of all, rapport is lost. It can very, very important to have developed a rapport with you and the interviewee so that that person can feel comfortable in offering you the best of their skills. With having that computer monitor or the monitor as something that is standing in between the two of you, it can diminish the value of that interview or their comfort level. Something else that is very important that you're missing would be body language. Even though you can see that individuals body language, there's something about having that body language present within the room. Because you can feel sometimes what that body language is sending. And that can match some of the words that the person is delivering. The last thing that you want to think about when dealing with an on line interview, one of the challenges that you might face, is technology. Technology can be a major barrier for an on line interview. If you have a buffering problem to where you have low buffering, that can certainly distort the interview. It can make it difficult for you to understand what the interviewee is saying and make it difficult for them to understand what you are in return saying. Something else that is very important for you to think about when it comes to technology would be the sound quality. The sound quality is going to be very important in you determining what was said and how that tone came across in that message. So these are just some challenges that exist when conducting an on line interview. Good luck with your interview, have a wonderful day.
