Video Call Interview Tips

Video Call Interview Tips

1. Look at the camera, not the screen (The equivalent of maintaining eye contact)
2. Turn off other apps, you don’t want emails or other things distracting you
3. Have a sensible user name as this is your first impression
4. Use notes on your screen so you can have gentle reminders on what to say without having to look down all the time
5. Dress smart, it’s still an interview so dress to impress! (at least the top half)
6. Sit in a quiet room with no distractions and a plain background – FYI you can actually blur your background similar to that of portrait mode when taking a picture
7. Check your internet and have a back up in case the call fails, the interview can still go ahead
8. Make sure you are not on mute
9. Record your interview – you can watch it back and learn from it and you can also follow up your interviewer with an email if you felt you could have elaborated on any questions
