With the rise of outsourcing, it’s becoming increasingly common for companies to interview job applicants using video-calling software such as Skype rather than ever meeting them in person.
Many small businesses in the US and UK now outsource some of their admin and it isn’t really feasible for most of them to travel and meet the provider in person, especially if they are in a different country – this would wipe out any potential cost savings right away!
