There are only a few things that Skype has done right. Skype Interviews is one of them. This feature lets HR folks interview aspirants over a video call, and since it also supports programming languages, its cherry on top. Today, Microsoft has lifted converted this one to one interview into a group video call with some additional programming language support.
Today, we’re happy to announce the next milestone for Skype Interviews. We’re introducing code snapshots, group video calling, chatting, file upload, more programming languages and a newly refined UI. All of these features are based on our amazing community feedback.
We’ve also heard from our community that multi-person interviews are very important for the interview process. Therefore, starting today, we’ve lifted the limitation of two participants in an interview. Whether you want to have peer-reviewed interviews or have all aspects of the interview in one consolidated place, it’s as simple as sending interviewers the same link
Microsoft has added five new programming languages to existing seven languages. You can now conduct interviews with PHP, F#, Go, Rust and TypeScript.
Ability to take screenshots, file upload are some really good additions. This will reduce the time that one spends for sending resumes, code files separately, and can be done right away. This will not only test how well the aspirant was ready but with video call, they can actually measure the confidence level with their experience. Overall a well-done job.
