Skype Meetings - Video Calls and Recording

Skype Meetings - Video Calls and Recording
The Skype meeting will be recorded by the candidate and will record the conversation and video of the
candidate (interviewer) and CPI (interviewee).
This process requires Skype for Business and a webcam, either built into your laptop or an external
device. The webcam will provide both the Audio and Video portion of the recording. Please note that
while using external webcams will provide clearer recordings they are not required if your laptop has a
built in webcam.
