  • A Complete Guide to Virtual Interviewing

In addition to meeting social distancing recommendations, virtual interviews are becoming a preferred method of interview due to ease of scheduling and budget friendliness for both the job seeker and employer. The goal of any interview, whether in-person or virtual, is the same - you want to make a lasting impression that gets you to the next round of interviews.

An Orion virtual interview is your chance to interview with hiring managers for positions across the U.S. that are a match with your background, skills, and preferences. All you need is a good internet connection and a virtual interviewing platform of the company's choosing to interview for your next career from anywhere in the country without the need to travel.

We’ve created a variety of resources to help you succeed in the virtual interview process:
