Believe me or not, choosing to have job interviews via email or chat is for your best interest. Here are the reasons why:

1. To avoid interview hassles because of sudden slow of internet connection. No one would want mess during their job interview, as it would make your anxiety more intense. Even if you have great answers to job interview questions, you’d have hard time creating a good impression because of the choppy video call. Hence, if you don’t have a reliable internet connection, which is utterly expensive, insist of having chat-interview instead.

2. To save you from the dreaded tongue tie. Let’s admit it. Face to face job interview even via video call is a stressing experience. As a matter of fact, even most qualified applicants lose the job because of a sudden mental block. Whew! I know it’s bad to lie or create excuses. But if you have a way of having the job interview through email or chat, grab it. Just make sure your excuse is acceptable and doesn’t appear as an obvious escape pad.

3. To keep a record of agreements. If you think the above reasons are lousy, continue reading this. Some employers prefer job interviews via video call because they don’t want you to keep a record. Skype video call, the most popularly used media for job interviews via video call, does not allow recording. Sadly, some use this limitation to avoid evidences of job agreements. If you don’t want to become a victim of job fraud or breach of agreement, prefer email or chat for conducting job interviews.

When you apply online, which is often applied to telecommute job, employers often request you for job interviews via Skype video call. They prefer job interview via video call because they get the chance to see your facial expression, and gestures, which they can use to assess your personality and communication skills. Moreover, it enables them to evaluate the authenticity of your knowledge and identity, making sure no one is coaching you for the job interview. However, if you know you can push through an online interview via email or chat, push through it.

you can not decide how online interview will take place its in the employers discretion wether interviews should be done on email or through phone or skype

If you insist on email you might be given the impression that you are a bogus crap masquerading to be someone which you are not!

Interview is a common agreement, not a sole discretion of employer. It all still depends on your current circumstance and them as well. You just have to know the proper way to negotiate with the kind of interview you want. Joe the Applicant, employers aren't or should I say shouldn't be dictators. You have a choice of choosing your employer too. This shouldn't be a problem if you're fit for the job. All you have to do is prove you are what you are claiming to be, and that doesn't require a phone call. Wish you all the best for your job hunting!
