How to Download Zoom & Microsoft Teams
A lot of interviews are continuing to be held virtually, so we created a how-to download guide for the most common video conferencing applications: Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
Downloading Zoom or Microsoft Teams is a simple process that only takes a few minutes before you are up and running with your own account.
Both Zoom and Microsoft Teams allow you to begin video meetings immediately after download and are free to use.
It is ideal to familiarise yourself with these applications well in advance, especially in the case of an interview, as it is just as important to be on time for a video interview as it is for an in-person interview.
Therefore, we suggest you give yourself an adequate amount of time to download and navigate through the applications before your first official use to ensure you understand how everything works - this way you are well prepared.
