Online interviews tips – how to prepare
Approach and prepare like a normal interview
Do your research on the company, people, role, competitors – use all tools available? incl. company website and LinkedIn page
Prepare yourself as per interview format, i.e. if competency-based think of examples you would like to discuss
Dress appropriately – business attire? Smart casual?Be as ready as you can with technology ensuring things like the camera is working fine, volume at the right level, WiFi fully connected, etc.
Be in a quiet environment – switch off/mute any distractions that may be near youBuild a good relationship with the interviewer/s from the start and ‘break the ice’ – a big smile is always good to start
Be yourself, let your personality come through, do not be an interview robot, just because the interview is virtual, you are not!!!
Speak clearly, concisely, and communicate effectively including listening very carefully, do not be afraid to ask the interviewer to repeat the question if you did not hear initially
Personalise your answers, don’t be too cliche’ or off-script
Show interest and understanding – nodding and smiling will help
Ask relevant questions – have questions ready with you, write them down, and be ready
Always wrap the interview up positively and always emphasise how much you want the opportunity
Ask if ok to be in contact afterward if you think of anything else
Thank them for the opportunity and next stages/ when you should expect to hear back
Make sure you disconnect the video connection properlyGet in touch
