Tips for Video Interviewing

As we transition to inteviewing virtually, there are a few things to note:

 

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time to make sure your system is working properly.

 

Your virtual interview will be as close to the real interview as possible, so please prepare accordingly.

 

Try to find a quiet location.

Quick Tips:

  • Dress professionally, but keep the camera in mind. Solid colors are always safe. You will be able to make any needed adjustments to your appearance once you see yourself on camera.
  • Ample room lighting is needed to ensure good video quality. Light sources should come from behind the webcam (with the light shining on your face) and not from behind you. Try not to sit with your back to a bright window.
  • The height for the webcam should be roughly at eye level. Make sure the webcam is the appropriate distance away from you so that it is displays your head and shoulders.
  • Whether you are using VoIP or a conference call line, we recommend you are hands free to have a more natural conversation. If you are using your cell phone for the interiew, make sure your battery is fully charged.
  • Be on time! Connect to the interview early and be prepared to greet other participants.
