Well prepared in the discussion talk with Videotelefonie

Overview

If you underestimate the video interview, you can sit back and relax - there will be no personal conversation for you afterwards. For this, another candidate has qualified ...

A successful video interview begins with the right attitude to this - admittedly: still relatively new - conversation medium. Look forward to it, be well prepared and take the chance to tell your wish-maker already in this way, why you are exactly the right occupation for the free position.

1. Preparation is half the (application) life

Overview

In terms of content, an interview with Skype is hardly different from a personal interview. Organizationally, however, there are some aspects to consider for a professional presentation:

  • Have the contact details with the HR replaced?
  • Are your profile name and profile image sufficient for a professional contact?
  • Do your privacy and / or status settings make the person's call?

Clarify in advance who is calling whom and - in case of emergency - provide the contact person's phone number and email address.

2. Technical aspects should not be underestimated

Overview

The impression of your presentation depends to a great extent on the technical conditions. Even if you've been a hundred times before - have a look at the most important aspects just before the interview:

  • Quality of the Internet connection: connect the LAN cable, if necessary, or change the position to the W-LAN router
  • Volume of the microphone and the loudspeaker
  • Video quality in lighting: not too bright and not too dark
  • Start the computer early and close all other programs: You do not want to experience the moment of automatic shutdown because of a system update ...

3. Adequate clothing

Overview

In addition, lay down all the important documents and utensils, from the CV on the job profile to the handkerchief, unobtrusive. During the call, you should not leave your seat.

Dress up adequately for a presentation date. Whether you wear a pants or not is a question of inner attitude, not a question of camera excerpt.

4. Show presence

Overview

In the appointment itself, you must pay particular attention to the fact that you speak clearly, observe delays in the transmission and have the conversation partner talked out. Otherwise, important information may remain on the track.

Anyway, it is more than legitimate to ask in video calls if you did not understand something correctly. You can even use the excuse "not understood acoustically" well if you want to gain a moment to answer a question ...

5. Please do not touch!

Overview

You must not hide behind your computer. Be present and usually look at the camera. Unnecessary movements divert content. On the other hand, you should not be frozen on the screen of the recruiter.

If you need something to help you calm down, make handy notes. Typing on the PC keyboard produces a lot of noises, which should be avoided.

6. Focus on the audio channel

Overview

Video function or not: the audio channel, say: What you say is crucial. The technical quality should also be right here.

Therefore, make sure that no family members, pets or outside noise (windows open?) Cause loud or visual distraction. And check the microphone again.

7. The right background

Overview

Choose a neutral background in your apartment, which does not appear to be kaleidoscope or book-colored.

A simple picture often helps. The recruiter should hang on your lips and not think about whether the AC / DC poster is on your or your son's wall.

Summary

Overview

Do not be afraid of a job interview with Skype: With good preparation and a bit of anticipation, you can show a strong presence and gain a lot of positive points.

By the way, you also show the recruiter that you can best handle modern communication technologies. This competence can hardly be better presented than in a video interview and is often underestimated. Good luck with the conversation. You will like it.
