Employers use virtual job interviews (also known as also known as video interviews, digital interviews, and web conference interviews) to select candidates with the use of digital tools to conduct interviews. The infographic shows 5 quick tips to prepare best for virtual job interviews.
1. Organize and Prepare
Organize and prepare for a virtual job interview just as you would for a face-to-face interview. Compile a list of your strengths and weaknesses. In addition, plan on being prepared for a conversation about your background and skills. Collect all the materials you will need, so they are within reach to reference during the interview.
2. Know Common Interview Questions
Compile a list of practice interview questions and have answers for common questions such as:
- “Tell me about yourself, your background, and skills.”
- “Why are you interested in working for our company?”
- “What’s your greatest weakness?”
- “Why are you looking for a new role?”
- “What’s your greatest achievements”
- “Tell me about a workplace challenge and how you handled it.”
3. Do a Mock Virtual Job Interview
It’s not as easy as it seems to articulate yourself over the phone or make the right impression via video. But practice makes perfect.
4. Set the Tone
It is important to set the tone for a virtual job interview as you will not want any external disruptions while it takes place.
Remember: Time, Location, Interruption free, Lighting, Outfit.
5. Get Your Technology in Place
We all know of the technical difficulties that can arise with digitized work collaboration when team members work remotely. To avoid any mishaps during a virtual interview, get your technology in place. Make sure you test out all your audio, technology, and technical equipment prior to the actual interview. This will give you time to troubleshoot any issues.
