Webcam interviews

In today's global work place recruiting agencies are using webcam almost systematically for pre-screening interviews with potential candidates and job seekers.

A virtual interview is an important step in the selection process and the first opportunity to 'sell' yourself 'in person' once your CV has been short-listed. Whilst it may not always be determinant to getting hired and can feel sometimes a little 'unreal', just as with a face-to-face interview you should always be well prepared to maximise your chances of success in getting to the next stage.

Our recruitment team have put together some recommendations to help ensure you
are best prepared:

  1. Make sure you have done your research on the hiring company and know your CV inside out. It's not because you are not meeting your interviewer in person that you shouldn't be fully prepared
  2. Dress appropriately - it may feel strange to sit in front your computer 'all dressed up with nowhere to go' but personal presentation & grooming make all the difference
  3. Eliminate distractions - ensure you are in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. Background noise (dogs barking, people walking about, etc.) will disturb the flow of the interview and can be quite frustrating for both you and the interviewer
  4. Test your connections before the interview. Make sure your webcam and internet connections are in good working order plenty of time ahead to avoid last minute technical issues and revealing bad organisational skills
  5. Use a professional ID or user name and ensure your profile photo is appropriate
  6. Keep your interviewer engaged - ensure you are making eye contact with the CAMERA and using appropriate body language giving a positive and confident impression at all times
  7. Respect the agreed time for the interview - you wouldn't turn up late for a face-to-face interview and recruiters will often have a strictly timed schedule with little or no room for delay

Finally, once you've checked on all the above, relax, be yourself and enjoy!
