Preparing for a Video Interview

COVID-19 has contributed to work interviews being conducted online, with services like Zoom becoming increasingly common. Video interviews work a little differently than those done in person. A couple of guidelines may help secure the job.


Sylvan Springs, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/21/2020 -- It may be face to face, but dressing the part is still important. Attire can affect demeanor and, therefore, make a person appear more professional even if the interview is only seeing the prospective above the waist.

Etiquette is arguably even more important. It's not uncommon for there to be a delay in the audio. If a person is not careful, they may accidentally be perceived as though the interviewer is being rudely interrupted. A few seconds before responding to a question is a safe bet.

Note-taking may be necessary, reinforcing the need to have pen and paper handy. Although it would make sense to simply type in something that needs to be written down, this might work against the candidate because they may be seen as focused on something else. Writing down notes indicates that the applicant is paying attention to the interviewer, and can help appear more professional.
