Video Interview Prep - How to Boss It!

Updated: Apr 21, 2020

Last week I did my first Skype interview. It’s a bit weird if you aren’t used to it – it’s going to get a lot less weird over the coming months so here’s some tips so you knock it out of the park, from the start.


KNOWLEDGE

- Do your usual prep. Research the organisation, the people interviewing you, read the press, the annual statements & any policies you can find

- Review the role profile. For each point think of 2 examples you can use to support your case


CV

- find ways of linking each role to the organisation/role

- Make notes. These help you remember specific instances & info


ROOM

- Elevate your laptop/tablet/phone so when you are talking they are looking directly into your eyes (not up your nose / down at you)

💡 Make sure you are well lit

🛸 With a plain background

🚪 Shut the world out

🥛 A glass of water


PROMPTS

📑 Have post-it notes with useful information at eye level


FINALLY

🔊 Check your sound

💻 Clean your camera

🔌 Do a test call

– make sure everything works!

🔇 Know where your mute button is


IN THE INTERVIEW

- Don’t fidget - Make eye contact

- Have final questions prepared

- Smile 😁


And don’t forget


YOU’VE GOT THIS! 🏆
