A virtual interview should be treated as much like a professional in-person interview as possible. Keep the following tips in mind when preparing for a virtual interview:  

  • This interview will be self-recorded 
  • Wear clean, pressed and professional clothing 
  • Be mindful of your presentation and communication throughout your experience and always portray professionalism 
  • Ensure you are in a quiet and professional environment free from distractions. Keep in mind, your location of choice should have a neutral background and good lighting. 
  • Virtual interviews are dependent on having a good internet connection. Test your connection before the interview and make sure your microphone and webcam are functioning correctly.  
  • Video is required for all interviews. Ensure you're not blocked, and that your webcam is at eye level (not angled up or down at you). Put yourself in the center of the frame. 
  • Answer questions clearly, honestly and accurately. Avoid pre-writing interview answer and reading your interview answers directly off from a piece of paper and/or another screen.  
Candidates should take their time while completing the assessment(s) and answer the questions without distraction or interruption. Be yourself and answer questions honestly.
