It may be your first time taking a video interview but don’t worry, we are here to help.
We have prepared our top tips for taking a video interview and how to stay calm and collected during the process. You’ve got this!
Get ready in the same way you would for a face-to-face interview; wear a professional outfit, style your hair appropriately, and look for a nice and quiet place to take the interview.
Pay attention to your surroundings… if you can hear your dog barking, we will hear it too.
- Relax! We are not expecting perfection
We understand it might be the first time you have been asked to complete this type of interview. It doesn’t need to be perfect; the recruitment team wants to see how passionate you are about the role and gain an understanding of your skills. Take a deep breath, count to three and try to enjoy it.
- Be ready
Do your research about the company you are interviewing for.
Recruiters want to get to know you, so be prepared with examples of past jobs and experiences. You might not only be asked about what you have done in the past but what you would do in certain situations.
i.e. Tell us about a time when you identified a problem and came up with a unique solution.
- Follow the instructions and practice
Once you click on the interview link, you will be guided through a setup process. Make sure the audio and video are working correctly. Take advantage of the practice questions to get used to the watch/prepare/respond rhythm.
Enjoy the process and good luck with your video interview!
