Leilani -

At the risk of stating the obvious... why not use the process you currently use for telephone interviews?  If remote interviewing is new to your organization and Skype is the mode of choice, then I would suggest using the video chat feature.  This would offer essentially the same deterrent as a live interview.  The best approach may be to simply not worry about it.  Research on this and similar modes of cheating (e.g., remote interviews, web-based testing) indicates it is a relatively rare.  Also, stupid people tend to have stupid friends, so it's likely the interview wouldn't go well regardless.

Subject: [IPAC-List] Confirming ID of Skype Job Interviewees

This is an EXTERNAL EMAIL. Stop and think before clicking a link or opening attachments.

Our organization on occasion conducts job interviews via Skype or similar.  There is the chance that the candidate who interviews may not be the person who applied - with a little bit of effort, a person might have someone 'stand in' for them.  I'm interested in what methods are being used to verify the identity of candidates who are being interviewed once they are live onscreen?  Thanks in advance!
Best regards, Leilani Yan
