Let’s face it, if you nail the job interview, you are highly likely to be the winning candidate. The workplace has shifted to working remotely so doing video interviews has become the norm for employers and candidates. Set yourself up for success by knowing how to prepare for a good video interview.
A few video technologies that have become quite common for interviewing are Zoom, Skype or Google Hangouts. They are simple to use, and the technology is free after creating an account. Learn to embrace video interviews because they give you the opportunity to interact with recruiters and employers quicker than the time it takes to set up an in-person interview. They also give you the face-to-face experience that is missing from a phone interview.
Treat the video interview as you would an in-person interview and prepare for it. Unlike in-person interviews, video interviews introduce additional elements that can cause distractions if you are not prepared. Follow the steps in the infographics below to create a visual environment that is aesthetically pleasing and prepare you to make your next video interview a success.
