During the Video Interview
- You must remember to talk directly into the webcam - maintaining eye contact as if you were talking directly to the interviewer. It's often tempting to look at the screen or refer to notes... don't!
- When you are answering questions, try to inject some enthusiasm into your voice. This can be difficult when you're talking to a camera, so you may need to practice this in a mirror.
- Maintain a good posture - don't slouch and don't wriggle - but don't be rigid either. If your chair is a swivel type, lock it into the upright, static position.
Practice your Video Interviewing Technique
- Pay attention to body language, enthusiasm and eye contact (with the webcam), and then make adjustments to your performance, until it becomes more refined yet natural.
- During practice interviews, get into the mindset by dressing appropriately and creating the correct room-setting - so that you are in true interview mode, even though you're just rehearsing.
