How To Rock Your Remote Job Interview?

Remote work is more prevalent than ever before. That means that people are no longer limited by their physical location and can apply to jobs that can be done remotely.

Even though remote interviews should imitate the interviews conducted in-person, a remote interview still has some unique characteristics.

Check out our tips on how to rock your next remote job interview!

How To Rock Your Remote Job Interview?

Check Your Internet Connection. And Again. And Again!

Scheduled for a 30-minute get-to-know-each-other interview? You don’t want to have any connectivity problems as every minute of your interview counts. Make sure you have a stable Internet connection, close all the apps in the background and make sure to test your microphone and camera before the interview begins.

Find A Quiet Space

Even though the fact that you can apply to any job position regardless of its location is amazing, having an interview for it can still feel like a challenge, especially if you live with other people. Try to stay away from noisy cafés and find a space where you won’t be bothered by other people.

Check Your Background

A job interview screams professionalism, so you should also keep the space where you have the interview as professional as possible. Keep it free of clutter, your personal items and make sure the space is as clean as possible.

Dress To Impress

Even though you won’t meet your recruiters in person, you should still try hard to look as professional as possible (depending on the company culture, of course). Even your whole outfit is (usually) not visible on camera, you should still dress the same as you would if you went to an interview in person. And yes, that means you shouldn’t skip the pants!

Look Into The Camera

When you’re on the video call, it’s pretty natural to look at that person’s face on your screen. However, to the other person, this might appear like you’re looking down. Try to remember to look directly at the camera when you’re speaking because it will appear as you’re looking them in the eye.

Prepare To Take Notes

You’ll probably get a lot of new information about the company and the role you’re interviewing for, about their company culture, working conditions, etc. You won’t want to forget some of this information so make sure you have a pen and paper somewhere handy!

In conclusion, the preparation of the remote job interview is quite similar to the in-person one. Make sure to stay professional, be confident and prepare to ask and answer some standard interview questions.

Good luck, we believe in you!
