Prepare for a great Skype interview

by on
in Career Management,Workplace Communication

More organizations are using Skype to conduct interviews. Beth Braccio Hering at CareerBliss.com rounds up her favorite tips for making a great impression.

•  Wear light, solid colors. Black is the worst because it makes shadows across the face, and can make you look older. Generally, stick to light blue if it suits you.

•  Find a quiet place, free from phones, doorbells and roommates. Make sure the background is neutral.

•  Speak slowly and clearly. Be mindful of the time delay, pause a few beats between sentences to avoid crosstalk.

•  Make sure important documents and notes are at hand. Just like in a face-to-face interview, you don’t want to shuffle papers around.

•  Turn on the camera and see how you look and sound before the interview. Adjust the volume, focus and lighting beforehand. Skype a friend to test your settings.
