Not a big problem just call up and change it to a over the phone interview right? After all I gave myself a half hour to work out the bugs before the interview. Nope. I only have one contact number and it goes to voicemail. I spend the next hour trying to contact anyone or get Skype for Business to work on Linux when I finally get a call back a half hour after the time of my interview and get the number for the hiring manager. I leave a message with them but at this point I don't blame them for ignoring me.
Save me from antiquated software.
Skype and Skype for Business are two separate programs that just share the same name. An external person can connect into Skype for Biz but it has to be setup on an Enterprise level at both sites.
Did this company ask you to have a Skype interview with them and just expect for you to magically show up on their network?
If I'm reading what you posted correctly you might have just dodged a bullet. What was the position?
Mail room at an MIT medical research facility.
Big part of why I'm pissed. I would have loved to have MIT on my resume even if it was a three times removed thing.
