Why you SHOULDN’T do a Skype interview when hiring a VA – Practical Advice

Yes, I am aware it goes against conventional recruiting knowledge. But over the years, I’ve seen that I have better success hiring Filipino virtual assistants when I don’t do Skype interviews.

However, I have seen people do it successfully. That’s why I am amending my stance on this. I still don’t think you should do Skype interviews UNLESS

  • The job requires good English speaking skills, like customer support
  • You do the interview late in the recruiting process.

Filipinos don’t like Skype interviews. Not because they’re bad at it. They have really good reasons why they’re not comfortable with these interviews. You’d be surprised to discover what these reasons are.
