Online Interview Tips Always do an interview test run with your computer

Technology can be confusing for everyone. The key to doing an interview online is to feel comfortable with the format being used. Figuring out how to turn camera and mic on at the last moment seems extremely unprofessional, hence, checking everything and getting acquainted with the software will help you ease your nerves and be more confident when the actual interview starts. Pick the Perfect Spot

For the perfect lighting, make sure to find a spot that isn't too dark but also not directly under overhead lights. If possible, try to settle down near a window. Natural light is best as bad lighting can be distracting. A glare could make it difficult for the interviewer to see you. Also, make sure to have a clean and tidy background. Leftover laundry or garbage can make it look very unprofessional. Don't get distracted

Silence anything that could interfere with your conversation, including your phone and email notifications on your computer. As well as any other distractions like a pet or family members with background chatter as it can be distracting for both you and the interviewer. Sit up and dress professionally

Even though you’re not meeting your interviewer in person, make sure to dress for success and sit up straight. First impressions matter and your appearance is crucial to making a good one. Calm your nerves

Everyone gets nervous, don't freight! When you are feeling nervous during an interview question, do not get rattled, instead take 5 seconds to breathe in and out to clear your mind and then answer. You can also practice beforehand by rehearsing your main talking points and remember to slow down. Look your interviewer in the eye

Even in the online environment, eye contact is important. Instead of looking at the person on the screen, look directly into the webcam and stay engaged. Make sure it does not look like you are reading your answers out of a paper.


In-Person Interview Tips Practice and prepare Review the typical job interview questions employers ask and practice your answers. Strong answers are those that are specific but concise, drawing on concrete examples that highlight your skills and back up your resume. Your answers should also emphasize the skills that are most important to the employer and relevant to the position. However, it’s equally important to listen carefully during your interview in order to ensure your responses give the interviewer the information they are looking for.

Develop a connection with the interviewer In addition to indicating what you know about the company, you should also try to develop a connection with your interviewer. Know the interviewer's name, and use it during the job interview. Ultimately, building rapport and making a personal connection with your interviewer can up your chances of getting hired. People tend to hire candidates they like and who seems to be a good fit for the company's culture.

Research the company, and show what you know Do your homework and research the employer and the industry, so you are ready for the interview question. However, if they do not question you about the company, you can always incorporate it in your answers. You should be able to find out a lot of information about the company’s history, mission and values, staff, culture, and recent successes on its website. If the company has a blog and a social media presence, they can be useful places to look, too.

Get ready ahead of time As mentioned whether online or offline, a first impression is extremely crucial and it's often made by your appearance. Have an interview outfit ready and plan every single detail out before time, from hair to shoes. Print out extra copies of your resume and have a pen and pad ready. Make sure your interview attire is neat, tidy, and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with.

Be on time (that means early) Be on time for the interview. On time means five to ten minutes early. If need be, drive to the interview location ahead of time so you know exactly where you are going and how long it will take to get there. Give yourself a few extra minutes to visit the restroom, check your outfit, and calm your nerves.

Try to stay calm During the job interview, try to relax and stay as calm as possible. Remember that your body language says as much about you as your answers to the questions. Proper preparation will allow you to exude confidence. As you answer questions, maintain eye contact with the interviewer. Be sure to pay attention to the question so that you don’t forget it, and listen to the entire question before you answer, so you know exactly what the interviewer is asking. Avoid cutting off the interviewer at all costs, especially when he or she is asking questions.
