The selection interview procedure is essential for job applicants to land a job. Due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, most enterprises and organizations are somehow forced to switch from in-person interviews to virtual forms. Nonetheless, in-person interviews have historically been preferred for the job applicants’ selection process. Because of the current trend, virtual selection interviews are gradually seen as a more suitable approach than in-person ones, yet research on virtual selection interviews is still limited. In this case, synchronous interviews are the ones to be discussed. A framework is proposed in this study to assess the relationship between virtual selection interviews and selection outcomes for job applicants and organizations, using impression management tactics as mediators. Impression management tactics were then divided into two categories, one is assertive IM tactics and the other is defensive IM tactics. Based on this proposed framework, six propositions are discussed afterward to see how impactful different IM tactics may be in virtual selection interviews. Eventually, this study is concluded by providing theoretical and managerial implications and aims to serve as a fundamental basis for future studies.
