MUMBAI Oct 9: In an embarrassing situation a job applicant was caught cheating in a Skype interview by lip syncing while someone else answers the questions.
The bizarre clip, which has recently emerged online, shows the Indian man’s mouth moving – just not in time with the words.
He starts to answer a follow-up question but is rumbled as the recruiter laughs and stops him.
The interviewer says: ‘Man, hold on hold on, I think it’s not you who is speaking, someone else is speaking here and you’re just lip syncing.’
The applicant scratches his nose and shows no sign of remorse after being caught out.
He quickly shakes his head and appears to fiddle with a button out of of shot on his computer.
The questioner says he can also hear the candidate’s voice as well as the person speaking.
He adds: ‘I caught you… I already told you that it’s not the position where someone comes and gives you a task and you get on with it, it’s a very senior level position where you need to manage.’
The applicant by this point looks dejected and switches between looking glumly down the camera and sighing as he bows his head.

‘I’m sorry, you’re not going to continue this interview process,’ the recruiter says, ‘Going forward I suggest you not take like this. I mean you need to be very formal, at least practise before you take the interview for these kinds of things.
‘I clearly caught you, you’re also speaking in a really low voice, speaking with your lips okay. I’m sorry about that, thank you.’
The footage, which was first released in 2017, ends with the applicant appearing to end the Skype chat and the interviewer closing his computer.
