Microsoft-owned professional networking platform LinkedIn has started informing job candidates that they have the option to conduct their interviews virtually or delay, in view of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

“In light of the recent coronavirus outbreak and with everyone’s health being LinkedIn’s #1 priority at the moment, all candidates who are scheduled to come onsite are being given the option to either complete their entire interview virtually via BlueJeans video conference, or cancel their current schedule and hold off on rescheduling until coming onsite is possible,” the company said in a mail to one applicant from LinkedIn’s staffing team, The Verge reported.
