I'm Mike, the other half of the interview guys. As Jeff said, today we are focused on Skype interviews because more and more companies these days are using Skype or video interviews to look for candidates. it's really important that you know how to do a Skype interview properly, because it is usually your first chance to make a good impression with the company. JEFF Okay, so let's get started. What's our first tip Mike? MIKE Tip #1 is to set the scene. Make sure you choose a room that will give you some privacy, and that means it should be away from any noise including pets or children. You want to show the interviewer that you are prepared and focused. JEFF So does that mean my arctic snowy owl has to go? MIKE Wait, you have an arctic snowy owl living in a small cage in your living room? Is that even legal? JEFF You're right. I'm going to set her free out my window right now. Why don't you give the next tip MIKE Wait, you can't just let it go out the window...never mind...okay moving on...Tip #2 is to test your system. Make sure you are using a computer that doesn't crash and has a decent processing speed. It is also very important for you to test your internet connection, because there is nothing an interviewer dislikes more than a broken conversation or frozen screen. JEFF Our third tip is to dress the part. Just because you are at home, doesn't mean that you should be in your pajamas! You wantt the interviewer to be able to envision you in the role already, so try to dress the way you would if you already had the job! MIKE Our fourth tip is to smile and make eye contact! In other words, act naturally as you would in a traditional in person interview! Smiling and making eye contact will help create rapport with your interviewer, but also make you look confident, positive and enthusiastic about the job! But remember, you should make eye contact with your camera and not your screen, just like you were making eye contact with a real person. A lot of people make this mistake. JEFF Our final tip, is that you need to research and practice potential interview questions that you think are going to be asked in the interview. The good thing about the Skype interview is that you can make notes on your answers and have them nearby as a reference. Keep them just off screen so you can glance at them as needed.
