With so much of today’s hiring happening remotely, we have launched our WaterlooWorks integrated webcam feature to make it easier than ever to attend your interviews remotely, all within WaterlooWorks!

Some other features of this WaterlooWorks integrated webcam functionality include:
- Résumés and cover letters pulled straight from WaterlooWorks, so your employer can access these during your interview

- Support offered via chat, phone and email
