Its also easier said than done? The interviews may not happen consecutively for u to book a week of PTO to knock them all out. It may one a week etc. speaking from experience.

That's the way to do it yea

Use PTO days for interviews only. Use other free time to search

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
