Top 10 Video Interview Tips for Candidates  | ScreeningHive

The standard for corporate recruiting is quickly changed by video interviews because HR departments are looking for cost-effective ways to interview more volumes of candidates. This is important to be in a one-way chat (with chat responses to your questions) or Skype / Zoom interaction so you can express your interest to a client. But to market yourself well, it is necessary to do it correctly. 


Below are a few key tips for video interviews to help you impress your prospective boss with your skills.


  1. Try doing sample interview questions by making a video of yourself. Then watch the questions answered by the camera after you do so. This shows how you most certainly should look at the interviewer's phone. Note the requisite changes including the mannerisms, length of speech, and touch with the hand.

  2. Prepare for it as if they were routine interviews in person. That includes doing your research on what you need to be able to impress your company, not only on its company, interviewer, and role. Prepare for an interview exactly as you would like. Prepare the questions before the actual interview for one-way videos and whether you get the questions in advance, then you are already sure of the responses you will get. Note that training for this role is critical for your performance.

  3. Be Real and Casual. Don't let technology hinder your individuality from happening. You should chat, converse easily, and encourage the interviewer to understand you as a person during a physical interview.

  4. Don't underestimate the importance of the formality of this meeting. While your webcam includes video interviews at home, they are still formal. You must be careful, so quiet all the dogs, leave your door with a sign not to be bothered, shut off your telephone ringers, and avoid any messages from your device that might come. You don't want to reveal all your new emails and instant messages, especially if you interview aggressively.

  5. Hold the background focused. Make sure that the environment is free of visual disturbances, providing a tidy, professional image. Try taking background pictures. Look to see if the interviewer sees you with unacceptable or uncomfortable objects.

  6. Suits to go. Sure, with your collared shirt and suit jacket wear your black trousers and not your trendy Hawaiian shorts. You do not believe the camera can see your hands, but it would be awkward — to say the least, should you have to stand up for some excuse during the interview.

  7. Wear plain colours. Strong colours look better on the projector, in comparison to stripes or other designs. Video isn't the time to take this beautiful, fresh print tie or collared striped shirt — prints and shapes will overwhelm the frame, making it impossible for the interviewer.

  8. Bring on the best face of the newscaster. You must be a touch more energetic and articulate when addressing video and telephone than you want to show your passion in person. This is where the first thing you need to note is that it would be helpful if you video yourself and discuss any sample problems to see how you articulate yourself.

  9. Remember important details. Do not use notes. You may rely on paper notes for telephone interviews, but video interviews are face-to-face interviews that you can not use notes. If you look at your notes which will create an insufficient concentration, it would be apparent.

  10. Check your entire software before the interview. Also if you have previously used the application system, make sure it works correctly before signing in and beginning the interview. You can not only take the time of the moderator, but technical challenges will bring you extra tension and can damage the interview, of course.
