Skype, Facetime and Google Interviews

Video interviews are becoming more prevalent at all steps in the interview process.  We are seeing there  particular popularity with final interviews.

How to prepare:

 

  • Prepare and dress just like you would for any other interview
  • Check and double-check your equipment-  Are headphones plugged in properly? Do you have good bandwidth? Have your tried it with a friend to make sure everything is working okay?
  • Do a background check of the room.   Clean up any messes or things that might distract.   Make sure you have good lighting.  Use a solid back drop if possible
  • Make sure there are no distractions such as barking dogs, birds, noisy children or stereos  blaring.
  • Practice with a friend and make sure you are keeping good eye contact,  sitting on the edge of your chair and not talking with your hands
