Job Interview Tips

Video interview tips

Video interviews are becoming more common, especially for those of you applying for roles abroad.  We have put together some useful tips to help you with your video interview techniques:

  • Charge your device, plug it in and ensure you have good internet connectivity
  • Avoid using a mobile device and opt for a laptop or desktop computer – this will free up your hands and it is likely that this will provide more of a quality connection
  • Position yourself in front of a well-lit, plain, light background.  Dress professionally – just like you would for a face-to-face interview
  • Select a quiet location away from interruptions
  • Have a practice run beforehand.  This means you can see how you look and test your equipment.  The benefit of video interviews is that you can use prompts – make sure you position them above the camera so that it’s not obvious
  • Position the camera so that you can be clearly seen (head and shoulders).  Make sure you look at the interviewer via the camera when you’re being spoken to
  • Allow time for any delays before beginning your responses.  Sometimes it is unavoidable but try not to interrupt the interviewer
