The job interview process has gone largely virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic, and LinkedIn introduced two new features to help candidates make the best impression.

The professional network began testing a video introduction feature, which hiring managers can request as part of the process. Applicants can respond either via video or written copy.

Senior director of product management Blake Barnes said in a blog post, “We’ve found that 65% of people believe that the impression you make online is just as important as the one you make in person, but it can be challenging to show your soft skills to potential employers when you’re not in the same room … A carefully crafted response can help you stand out before the official interview process even begins.”

LinkedIn also added feedback powered by artificial intelligence to the interview preparation tools it rolled out in January.
