How to Excel in a Virtual Job Interview
If a company is interested in your job application, the odds are they will ask to do a virtual job interview instead of an in-person one.
Here are some tips that can help you stand out in such an interview and increase your odds of getting your desired job.
Don't even consider showing up for a virtual interview in your pajamas. Instead, dress as you would when going to work. Avoid gaudy jewelry and heavy
make-up and take off photochromatic glasses.
Choose a Suitable Spot
Choose a suitable spot for your virtual interview. It should be quiet, free from distractions, and tidy. A plain background is ideal but a sofa, shelf,
or a few photos are fine if they don't detract from your interview. Don't sit on the bed for your interview; it's too casual and gives a prospective
employer a bad impression.
Prepare Your Equipment
Make sure your internet connection is working well. Close tabs on your computer that would slow your machine. Test your audio and webcam to make sure
you won't have technical difficulties as you start your interview. Bear in mind that a lot of people are looking for work right now and there is no
guarantee a prospective employer will arrange a second interview if your computer doesn't work right the first time around.
Get Rid of Distractions
Have your coffee and a bite to eat before your interview. Eating and drinking during your interview is rude; furthermore, you may spill something on
your computer that would cause it to stop working. Silence your phone or even leave it in the next room, so you aren't distracted by messages.
It's important to put your best foot forward at your job interview. This applies both to face-to-face and virtual interviews. Even so, a virtual interview requires special preparation that an in-person interview does not. Take the time to prepare in advance to ensure you're prepared to excel when meeting potential employers over the internet. Your efforts will increase your chances of successfully landing the job of your choice.
