This is a unique opportunity to bring your application to life and stand out from a pile of CVs. A video will represent you much better than a paper cover letter attached to your CV. For specific job positions video questions can be used for checking your motivation, specific technical skills or for example language skills. You can choose the time and place, and you can arrange to respond to questions at your own convenience.
Once you have taken and passed the online tests:
Do your research and learn about PwC, specifically about the job and business area to which you are applying.
Be sure about how you want to present yourself and how you are going to make a positive first impression.
Practice, especially if you have never answered video questions before. Try recording yourself answering some questions. If you feel nervous, invite someone who knows you well to give feedback and suggestions on how to sound more natural. You will also have an opportunity to try out some practice questions in the system. However, these are not the real questions, and your answers to these questions will not be seen by us.
Check your internet connection and camera, as you will need a stable Internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone (e.g. a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone).
Choose a nice and comfortable environment and make sure to check your lighting and background. Avoid having sources of bright light behind you, as this makes it hard for us to see your face.
Log into the system early and run the set-up for the HireVue system, which will check your camera, connection and microphone, as well as let you know if there is a problem with anything. Once it runs the set-up, you will receive confirmation of its success. You can then close your browser and come back later once you are ready for your interview.
Remember, we just want to get to know you better!
Everybody has a story to tell!
