At Liberty Staffing, we would like to provide you with some virtual interview tips. We hope that you'll land that dream job you've always wanted!
Here are three virtual interview tips that are sure to set you on the path to success.
1. Try the Technology/Software Beforehand
Make sure to try, or test, the technology/software well in advance of your interview. After all, you'll want to make sure that everything runs smoothly during your virtual interview. There's nothing worse than having the video technology not work properly during your interview. It can be very distracting to have your screen freeze during your interview. Or, even worse, imagine if the video technology doesn't work from the start.
2. Wear Professional Clothing
Even though your interviewer will likely only see you from the shoulders up, it's still important to wear professional clothing during a virtual interview. At the very least, you should wear a collared shirt or blouse.
An employer will notice this immediately and will appreciate you taking the time to dress appropriately. Not only that, but your interviewer will view you to be a professional, viable candidate for the role at hand, increasing your chances of landing the job.
Even if your interviewer doesn't see what you're wearing from the waist down, you should still dress professionally. It will make you feel your best.
3. Follow Up
Last, but certainly not least, at the end of your virtual interview, you'll want to ask when the decision process will be made, and when/how it will be best for you to follow up. You'll also want to send an email, or call your interviewer, after your virtual meeting to thank them for their time.
Being polite and courteous goes a long way, and shows that you are respectful, a team player, and that you take initiative.
