The Virtual Job Audition

According to a recent article in HR Magazine, virtual auditions are gaining momentum in the new war for talent. These virtual tryouts or realistic job previews as they are sometimes called, place candidates in an online environment that mimics job tasks. These simulations may help employers make better hiring decisions in less time and give candidates a more accurate picture of the job they are interviewing for. Companies that have already impemented the technology include Toyota, Quest Diagnostics, and SunTrust Bank. While this new approach may feel a bit strange to some at first, it might also be instrumental in taking some of the inherent subjectivity out of the interview process and allowing candidates to feel more confident and more in control of the interview process.
