videointerview How to Prep for a Video Job Interview

With the improvement in technology in recent years, video interviews are becoming more commonplace amongst employers. Though this method may never replace a face-to-face interview, it will become something you may have to prepare yourself to do well.

Something to remember at all times is that a video interview is still an interview. It should not be taken any less seriously than an interview that is conducted in person. You are talking to a potential employer, so don’t think that just because you’re not in the room with him or her physically that you can slouch or get by with any less than you could in person. Prepare as if the interview will be in person, but do it on video.

The thing which you may want to keep in mind most during a video interview is that you may have to be a little more straightforward in presenting your own personal qualifications, aside from what is on your application. What employers see in individuals often determines who gets the job out of a crowd of people who are essentially equally qualified. These things are harder to relate in less personal communication methods, so keep in mind that the employer may not get ‘you’ as clearly in a video interview as in a face-to-face interview.

The key factor in all this is to be versatile. Perhaps the best recommendation is to work on your interviewing skills and be able to apply them effectively to any method of interview. This versatility may even show in the interviews and be viewed by the employer as a very useful character trait and set you off on a great first step toward a job, whether the interview is on video or face-to-face.
