Which Apps do you prefer for web interviews? Compare the four Apps
With lockdowns and restrictions in Malaysia and many other countries, many companies are starting to use web interviews to facilitate their recruitment efforts.
Therefore, We would like to introduce four applications that are often used by the company in the web interview, including the image quality and sound quality.
◆Apps to introduce
・Skype ・Zoom ・Webex ・Amazon Chime
From the conclusion, we recommend Zoom and Webex. Both were easy to understand on how to use, and the image quality and sound quality were good.
Skype is the most famous app, but the image quality is poor, and Amazon Chime was difficult to understand on how to use.
Here we are going to introduce you one by one!
Create an Account: Account creation is required for both the receiver and sender. You need to create both accounts and download the app. How to use: Create an account with the person you will be interviewing, share your Skype Name, search for ID, add, contact when the time comes, and start the interview.
