How would you face an online job interview? What you should expect? Here is some tips for you. Please leave comments and let me know about your experiences :)

PS. i already published the first part of the discussion, please have a look of my previous post.

*In the next part of the discussion i will face the typical questions you may expect during an online job interview.


You are expected to be nervous!

Try to think that it's not that important: there will be other interviews in future and it's not the end of the world if you don't get this job.

Preparation is key - the more preparation you have done, the more relaxed you will feel.

The interview will probably be based largely around your application form or CV. The interviewer may focus on areas of particular interest or relevance, such as vacation jobs or projects.

Interviews are designed to help candidates give evidence of the personal qualities which are needed to perform well in the job.

Usually, you will be expected to give an example of how you have demonstrated these qualities in the past in reply to questions such as:

Show leadership

Make a difficult decision

Work as a member of a team

Shown initiative

Change your plans at the last minute

Overcome a difficult obstacle

Refuse to compromise

Work with others to solve a problem.

During the interview:

Don't be too brief in your answers - but not too long either.

Watch the interviewer and pause from time to time - he or she will either encourage you to continue or will introduce another question.

It's OK to pause briefly

Be polite, but don't be afraid to enter into a discussion, some interviewers will deliberately challenge your replies in order to stimulate this kind of discussion.

Give answers which are relevant and illustrated with examples.
