Today, most hiring interviews are conducted via phone or video conferencing, such as Zoom, due to COVID-19. To do an impressive interview, here’s what you need to do:
⦁ Find a quiet spot in your home where you can communicate freely. Close the door if you’re not home alone.
⦁ Let everyone in the house know you’ll be having an interview and cannot be interrupted.
⦁ Turn off all distractions such as your cell phone, notifications on your computer, music, and anything else that makes noise.
⦁ Make sure your chosen room is brightly lit so the hiring manager can see you. Your computer/laptop should be facing a window to offer natural light to your face. If the window is behind you, it casts a shadow on your face and creates a silhouette effect. Also, it can be distracting for the hiring manager to watch what may be happening outside your window.
⦁ Dress professionally.
⦁ Look into the camera while speaking to maintain eye contact with the hiring manager.
⦁ Don’t forget to ask questions.
By focusing on the interview and making a good impression with these seven tips, you’ll have a better chance of having a productive discussion.
