Despite the COVID-19 lockdown, life goes on, and companies are still recruiting and interviewing. However, given the coronavirus lockdown, video call interviews, once a rarity, are now a more popular way of interviewing during these challenging times. Here’s our top tips for acing your next video interview.

Don’t get interrupted! Find a quite space at home where you can log on for your interview. Make sure the space is light, and if you can try to keep the space behind you clear and free of any personal items or information.

Test in advance. Check your computer is suitable for running the chosen video technology for your interview, and test your camera and speakers / microphone in advance to make sure everything is in working order!

Take it seriously. You should prep in the same way as you normally would for an interview, and make sure you dress to impress! Be personable and energetic.

Be ready for glitches. If you can’t hear your interviewer properly, let them know and work with them to adjust the equipment until everything is working correctly. If the video drops at any point, don’t panic! Make sure you have a contact number of the interviewer in advance so you can call them if necessary.
