How to face an online job interview? Here is my tips, what about you?
Getting an interview is an achievement in itself, only a small proportion of applicants are selected for interview, so you have already made a positive impression.
The purpose of the interview is to see if you match the requirements of the job, your personal qualities, how well you express yourself and your motivation.
There aren't any right or wrong answers to interview questions so be yourself.
Preparation for the interview is the key ingredient to succed.
Research very carefully the career area for which you are applying
Enthusiasm: remind yourself why you are interested in this career.
Re-read your application form and CV.
Try and anticipate the questions they will ask.
Prepare some questions to ask the interviewer.
Research the company via Google.
Get ready for the videoconference:
Make sure your internet connection is stable and reliable.
Find a plan B in case you may have technical problems or connection problem.
Have an alternative device ready to be used.
Adjust your device volume and set the camera at the right position (not too close, not to far).
Dress smartly but also comfortably
Try to relax, speak clearly and not too fast, start the interview in a positive manner and go on like this, smile and made a lot of eye contact, talk about subjects unrelated to job, assume expansive body postures, listen to empowering music beforehand.
