Mastering a Skype Interview

Comvergent's Career Opportunities, Interview Advice

Don’t be surprised if your next job interview request is to be conducted over the Internet using Skype.

Given the amount of qualifying applicants for each job posting, more employers are finding that hosting interviews with candidates over Skype is the most efficient way in helping to filter it down to the best-fitting candidates.

Employers can essentially see and hear you as they would if you were in person, but for you, the job candidate, it may require some additional preparation.

Getting it all to work

The last thing you need right before the interview is a technical problem. The night before and even the hours leading up to the interview, test everything to ensure its functioning. The application may also run more efficiently with other applications closed on your computer.

Checking your view

Your appearance over the computer is as important as your appearance in person. This also includes your surroundings. Make sure there are no distractions to the side or behind you. If you have a window or light directly behind you, make adjustments so that it’s not difficult on the eye for the opposite end.

You also want to make eye contact during the interview, so adjust your camera to the level that offers optimal eye contact.

The video quality will also be better if you stick to wearing a solid colored shirt and reduce sweeping movements with your head and hands.

Paying attention to sound

Ensure that there are no noise distractions during your interview, like the phone ringing, the dog barking or the baby crying. Also, drink plenty of water before your interview for a clear throat. And remember to exhibit passion and excitement in your speech and tone for greater impact.

Finally, prepare, prepare, and prepare for the interview as you would if it were an interview in person. Do your research in advance and come to the interview feeling confident for your chance at the next round of interviews, potentially at the employer’s office.
