Set Up for Technology Success

Follow the steps below to ensure your recorded interactive video interview goes smoothly. 

Step One

Check your device. Follow this link on the computer or mobile device you plan to use and click “Run Diagnostic Test.”

There will be three tech checks:

  • Async Video Test: You may need to install Flash 10.3.0 or above. If so, a link will be provided.. Click “Allow” for Adobe Flash Player to access your microphone and camera.
  • Live Video Test: Follow the on-screen prompts to test your camera and microphone.
  • Internet Connection Test: Standby as the test runs automatically. If your connection speed is adequate you will receive a “success” message.

If you successfully pass all three tech checks, you should be able to use the system and you do not need to submit results to our support team. Close the window and continue to step two below.

If your device failed any of the tech checks, click “Submit These Results to Support” at the bottom of the page and tech support will reach out within 60 seconds. Be sure to check your junk folder if you do not hear from tech support within that time.

Step Two

Access the interview portal. On the device you plan to use, follow the personalized link provided in your email invitation

If you are using a computer to record, you will need to use an updated Google Chrome or Firefox browser. Download the latest version from Google Chrome or Firefox

If you are using a mobile device, you will need to download the VidResponse mobile application. Download the mobile application for Apple or Android

Step Three

Practice. Once you enter the interview portal, you will do a final quick test of your camera and microphone. You can then respond to a practice question that will not be evaluated, but will give you an opportunity to become familiar with the recording system.

If you experience issues, click the link at the bottom of the page that reads “Technical difficulties? Send us a message.” You will receive an email response within 60 seconds. Be sure to check your junk folder if you do not hear from tech support within that time.
