Video Interview Tips
Although phone interviews are still more common, video interviews are becoming popular. This is partly because they save time and money for both the employer and jobseeker, but also because they make it possible to have meetings that otherwise might never occur.
As more companies start using video interview tools, it will be important for you to be up to speed. The tips and advice below will help you present yourself onscreen as a capable candidate.
Performing a dry run with a friend or family member is critical! This will highlight potential issues. You can make sure your equipment and software are up-to-date and performing optimally. We also suggest you rehearse your video call at the same time of day that your online interview is scheduled. If it is scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m., run your test on Monday at 4 p.m. This allows you to check for sufficient lighting and for unexpected interference. Shortly before your interview, quickly check again that everything is in working order. Good luck!
