Remote interviews are now the norm. As conditions change in different parts of the world, there is a return to in-person interviews in some cases, especially for the final stages of a recruiting process or a very high-profile hire. But in most cases, interviews at all stages will stay virtual for the foreseeable future.
Sometimes remote interviews can be audio-only or by phone, but video is really the standard today and most hiring companies will expect a candidate to be ready and prepared for video. Here are 5 tips for acing the remote interview.
The biggest difference from in-person communications or even a traditional phone call, of course, is that you can see yourself. It’s helpful to make a mental note, once you are sure you are in view and visible, to avoid glancing at your own image. It’s a distraction and the other side can usually tell if you are looking at your self-view for an extended time. Try to maintain good eye contact like a normal conversation. Practice also helps with this.
These 5 tips can help you ace the remote interview, before, during, and after the conversation itself.
