CCU uses video interviews as the initial stage of our interview process for most positions. The video interview is pre-recorded and can be completed by the applicant any time, day or night. Practice interviews can be completed before recording the full interview and most interviews can be completed in under 30 minutes. A web camera is required for the interview.
