Got asked for a zoom/in person interview. Which one shall I choose?Watch

1. It makes it seem you are more interested in the job since you have to go more trouble to present yourself in person.
2. You will have a better chance of making a stronger impression - both positive and negative. But if you are competing against several other candidates, you really only care about strengthening the positive impression. (i.e. it doesn’t make much difference if you make a mildly poor impression or a strongly poor impression - you haven’t got the job either way. But the difference between a mildly positive and strongly positive impression can be whether or not you get the job.)
3. You get to see the company on site. (Remember you are interviewing them as well.)
Well done for getting an interview in the first place You should be really proud.
Have you had a practice with the 2 different methods, and seen which one works best for you? If you haven't, this might be really useful as you're able to see which method you perform best at. Try and visit your University's careers service and see if they can go through it with you, and do 2 mock interviews (one in person, and one in person), and get some feedback on what you perform best on
I hope that's helpful - best of luck to you!
