The purpose of this study was to identify key virtual-recorded interview (VIR) skills that are essential to Apparel, Design, and Textile (ADT) student performance. The virtual, computer-recording interview platform, InterviewStream, was used as the data collection instrument in this qualitative, exploratory case study. Virtual interviews have been used primarily for in-person interview preparation. However, VIRs are now serving as the first round interview for some ADT companies (e.g., Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters Inc.). Because the interview process is changing for future ADT professionals, performance research is warranted. Findings indicated these five verbal and nonverbal skill enhancement areas for effective performance in virtual recorded interviews: (a) clear and concise message delivery, (b) quality submission and review, (c) focused connection, (d) friendly demeanor, and (e) time management.
