It’s the 21st century and well, Skype has been around for a better part of a decade (or has it been longer?). The point is, while you may not need to be physically present at a job interview, it’s possible in your lifetime that you will be asked for a digital video inerview.
But before you celebrate the prospect of being able to wear no pants in this interview — err, they’re hidden, right? — there are a few things to consider so that you can put your most professional fuzzy slipper-toed forward and nail it. Here are the 10 tips you can use to score big on screen.
Dress the part
Dressing well is as much about your headspace as it is about making a good impression, says Karen Winfield of corporate training centre PD Training. Even though you aren’t there physically, you want to present yourself the same way as you would for an in-person interview. “Dress [to suit] the culture of the company you’re interviewing for,” affirms career coach Kate Southam.
That means at the very least, the visible part of you is decent and presentable.
