The video interview creates an opportunity for bias in hiring. Bias doesn’t help anyone. Maybe you look older than most people at the company, and too senior for the role? Maybe you look too young and inexperienced? Maybe you have an accent, or you are a visible minority? Maybe you are overweight, or very short or very tall.

You can’t change any of that, but you can spend time to prepare for a video interview, practice sharing your success stories, be professional, and weaken the impact of any bias or prejudice you could be facing.
