In the past, your job was determined by the job of your parents, it was common practice to pass on your trade to your child. As tradesmen without children had no one to pass on their trade to apprentice positions became available and the job interview in its earliest form came to be. Since then the humble job interview has changed significantly and evolved into a different form for every industry. We now have telephone and video interviews.

It should come as no surprise to you that in a rapidly changing world that the job interview is not yet finished and most likely still has a long way to go before reaching its final form. With two-thirds of employers already relying heavily on video interviews, some believe that traditional in-person interviews are at risk of becoming a thing of the past.

Platforms such as snapchat support 10-second job interviews in an effort to make finding the right person a quick and easy process.

Another way the job interview is changing is with the use of personality tests and quizzes being utilized as the first layer of screening for potential candidates.

Whilst the humble job interview is likely here to stay, it is almost certain that it will not stay the same.
