As businesses manage this COVID-19 crisis, many companies have begun using digital technology early in the talent engagement process to replace the face-to-face interviews.
As a job seeker facing this reality, you should approach these video interviews no differently than you would an in-person, face-to-face conversation. Keep in mind, video meetings are still interactive events where you have an opportunity to build a connection with hiring managers. As such, be prepared and bring the same professional decorum.
I interview Tim Ihlefeld, President & CEO of Harqen—a video, voice and SMS interviewing company, for insights on ways candidates can prepare for their digital interviews.
Dress professionally and be intentional about your environment.
Treat your virtual meeting like you would for a live, in-person discussion. Shower, shave, brush your hair, and change into work-appropriate clothes. Make sure your surroundings are suitable to be on-camera. Place yourself in good lighting and avoid distracting elements in your background. You don’t want to have your refrigerator, family photos, or stack of mail behind you while you’re interviewing for a position you really want.
