Recruiting using Skype


What is Skype?

Skype is a software application that allows users to make voice or video calls over the internet. Skype software is free to download and video and voice calls are free to other Skype users. Software can be downloaded at www.skype.com.



Using Skype to interview students at Longwood eliminates travel and lodging costs, saving time and money. Additionally, it adds an element of convenience by allowing recruiters to interview right from their own offices.


Equipment Needs:

Skype software can be downloaded to your computer from the Skype website free of change. A webcam and microphone are necessary to operate Skype. Such equipment can be purchased for an estimated cost of $50-$60. * Some computers now come equipped with internal microphones and/or webcams. Please be sure to check your computer before purchasing any equipment.*
