Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't have a webcam?

Here at Hire-Intelligence, we occasionally get asked this question by candidates who have been setup for video interviews.  Market penetration of webcams is high in the US. Around 75% of computer owners have webcams, but statistics don’t really help a candidate complete their video interview.  

Live Video Interviews

If you are scheduled to participate in a Live Video Interview, then you must use a Personal Computer(PC) equipped with a webcam and microphone.  If your PC is not equipped with a webcam, we generally recommend you try your local public library.  Most often a public library will have a PC, equipped with a webcam and microphone, that is available for public use. You may also want to ask your friends, since most laptops built in the last 3 years have a webcam installed.  Finally, if you still cannot get access to a webcam, you can purchase one at any big box retailer, like Wal-Mart or Best Buy for as little as twenty to thirty dollars.  You can also purchase a webcam from the Interview4 Online Store. In addition your PC will need to meet the following requirements.
Microsoft Windows Computer:
  1. Windows Vista or Higher
  2. Internet Explorer 9 or higher OR Firefox 22 or higher OR Google Chrome 28 or higher
  3. Flash Player 11.6 or higher
