Post Your Top Tip For Webcam Interviews!Watch
Just thought I'd ask you what your top tip is for a webcam interview! I have one coming up on Friday (11th June) and thought I'd share one of mine whilst also hopefully getting people to share theirs. =D
My tip I got from a mate of mine is to use the sticky notes app. Keep a few dotted around the window you're using just as a reminder in case you forget something (maybe some strengths you've thought about you'd like to mention).
Don't focus on them too much, just use them as reminders or worst case scenario, you can drag them over the window where you're interviewers window is so it looks like you're looking at them (only do this if you're not sharing your screen though)! =D
What if for some reason you need to stand up? The interviewer will see you in your scivvies, you'll be mortified and they'll think you're a tramp who couldn't even be bothered to put trousers on.
Should get me some points at least for prioritising the interview instead of putting some trousers on. XD
The other thing is to arrange your camera so that you look at it face on. It might mean putting your laptop on a pile of boxes but definitely worth it. It'll make it seem like you're actually giving the interviewer eye contact which helps too.
Also as cheesy as it sounds, make sure you remember to smile.
