Do you prefer virtual or in-person interviews?
Why? In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of each?

In person. Real eye contact and a firm handshake are greatly valued by me, and the interviewer can get a better feel of the fit of the applicant. Virtual is something new but necessary these days, though. Harder to relax on virtual since you’re more worried about how you are coming across on the screen. However, it’s nice to be able to discreet look at notes. I have also done audio only interviews. All of these types, however, can have two or more people in the interview, which can be a little nerve wracking. Just be yourself :-)
Virtual. I'm more relaxed less nervous .
In my business my corporation every component of that organization is critical from cleaning the toilets to signing the big contracts. I know the perception is reality crap but I have to look past the resume and understand who I'm committing myself to and of course if I'm not committing myself to you then you won the lottery you have all the keywords we interview with like one step above messaging which is one loaf of bread one gallon of milk some toilet paper you know the list. I want to know not necessarily you can benefit my family but you are capable of
Absolutely in person if I've been selected because my resume had more key words in it and then they going to interview me from afar it tells me that they need to work on their human resources. Because they did not pass my test. There are some superficial jobs that how could you expect some personal giving a damn. Think about it you come work for me I'm concerned about you not just 8 hours a day. Could you imagine police officers divorce rate something's wrong LOL 9 out of 10 hate their jobs they dread it.
During the pandemic, Zoom interviews are fine although I prefer in person, but......with things still so precarious, no handshaking. That's just stupid. And I had Covid before the vaccines. And my antibodies only lasted a few months. So don't believe all these people who say you can't get it again because you have antibodies. Get vaccinated and take precautions so we can get rid of this damn virus. Enough with dumb excuses and ignorance.
In person interviews, because I can have true eye contact with the interviewer. I can also read their. body language to get an idea of how the interview is going.
I agree eyecontact handshakes
Most definitely personal interviews you can talk all you want over the phone but when you get to meet the person face-to-face the truth comes out body language all that it’s more genuine
