Recent advice from another poster on this forum was to sort something out with a school by chatting to them via Skype. However Skype is illegal in my present location. Which got me thinking. Given that more and more schools are conducting interviews via Skype, how would people approach this situation? Using Skype here is illegal and it is in fact blocked by all of the ISPs. When canny people started getting around it by using Virtual Private Networks, the ISPs started hunting down and blocking the provider's sites as well. So if you were in this situation and a school wanted to interview you via Skype, what would you do? a) Keep mum and arrange the Skype interview, hoping that your VPN won't let you down on the day. b) Explain that Skype is illegal and that you would like to respect your host country's laws and request an alternative. c) Explain that it is banned but that you'll try to find a way around it. For those of you who are recruiters, what would your reaction be to a shortlisted candidate who informed you that Skype was banned in their current country of residence (assuming that you conducted your interviews this way)?
