Tips for Success - Video interviewing

Before your interview

  • Dress smartly and mentally prepare yourself, just as you would for a face-to-face interview
  • Find a quiet place with no distractions or chance of interruptions
  • Have any important information to hand just in case
  • Use the opportunity to do the practice question and listen / watch yourself back. This will help you perfect a good style as well as prepare you for the process ahead. No one else can see your practice attempts

During the interview

  • Be clear and concise
  • Don’t move around too much or fidget, as the viewer may find this distracting
  • Be professional but enthusiastic
  • Remember: you can stop the interview between questions and return to it later using the link in your email invitation. However, once you’ve watched a question, you must answer it immediately
