If you haven’t had a video interview yet, you most likely will. According to SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management, approximately 75 percent of executives now use live video interviews for recruiting. Showing your professional best on a webcam can be tough. Here are three simple tips to ease the process by setting the stage for a successful interview.
Suit on top and PJs on bottom? Try again. You’ll exude confidence and professionalism when you look your best, even if the interviewer can’t see your freshly shined shoes.
Check and double-check your camera and Internet connection a day before the interview. Test the video software by video-calling a friend.
Take a look at what your audience will see in the video, and make sure it looks flattering and professional. This means clearing clutter or personal items around and behind you and making sure the lighting is just right.
