How to Prepare for Online Interviews

With the world of work becoming more remote, more interviews are happening online. However, that doesn’t make them any less nerve-wracking. Here is some advice for doing well in an online interview.

Dress professionally

Just like in an in-person interview, what you wear matters. Choose professional clothes  such as a shirt or blouse, and make sure they are comfortable. Avoid bold patterns, these can look bad on camera.

Test your technology

Technology can be the hardest part of an online interview, so be sure to test everything well in advance. Ask the interviewer what program they’ll be using, such as Zoom or Skype, and download it early.

Next, practice using it. Have a friend or family member call you to make sure the program works on your computer, and that you can hear and see each other clearly.

Check your lighting

While practicing, check how you look in the video. Is it too dark or too bright? Are there large shadows on your face? You may need to use an extra lamp or sit closer to a window to find the best light.

Don’t forget your background

While interviewers know you’ll probably be in your home, it’s still unprofessional to have mess behind you. Clean up the room behind you, and remove anything that could be distracting, such as dirty laundry. If possible, find a wall or clean space you can sit in front of.
