Make sure you wear trousers, and other useful video interview tips!

With video interviews becoming the new normal we wanted to share our top tips to ensure you are fully prepared for your upcoming video interviews!  

  • Test your webcam and access to the interviewing platform prior to your interview. Technical issues are the last thing you need when you are already nervous! 

  • Dress appropriately, you never know what you might need to grab during the interview and those Mickey Mouse PJ bottoms might not make the best impression! 

  • Make sure you have good lighting, this applies to a room being too bright or too dark! 

  • Find a quiet part of your house! It's difficult enough working from home, and add in kids with the summer holidays and you will need minimal distractions! 

  • Close all unnecessary tabs and applications on your computer or laptop. You don’t want pings and dings going off to distract your attention. ! 

  • Have a pen and pad to write notes and your CV for reference to hand! 

  • Smile, nod, listen, and use hand gestures when needed! This will give more body language signals and show you are engaged! 

  • Turn your phone on silent and/or put it in another room!
