They are similar to the types of questions you may be asked during a telephone or in-person interview with an employer. These consistent set of questions can help you qualify your skillsets against those of the jobs or candidates you are interested in. By submitting a Profile as a candidate or as an employer for a job, you can participate in a Virtual Interview.

The Virtual Interview can be used as an additional search approach or to further qualify jobs or candidates.
