More and more employers are opting for video interviews to simplify their recruitment process. While video interviews can be a convenient alternative to conventional face-to-face interviews, they can be challenging and intimidating for some interviewees. However, with the proper preparation, you can ace your video interview. Below are valuable tips to help you confidently and efficiently prepare for your video interview.

Understand the Company’s Culture

Finding an employer whose values, work habits, and ambitions align with your own is important when searching for a job. You can find out what a company is looking for by following these steps:

  • Browsing the company’s Social Media accounts
  • Search for the company name plus “company culture” and see if any results come up.
  • Read the “About Us” section. 
  • Use LinkedIn to find out if you have any connections at the company. 

Know the Company’s Product or Service

When preparing for a video interview, it’s essential to research the company before the interview. This will help you to come across as well-informed and knowledgeable. Understanding what the company does and what sets it apart from its competitors can help you stand out and make a positive impression on the interviewer. You can research by exploring the company’s website and searching for relevant information. This will provide valuable insights that can help you confidently answer any questions that come your way during the interview.

Rehearse and Practice Your Video Interview

Preparing for a video interview is crucial to increasing your chances of standing out as a candidate. Practicing beforehand can help you gain confidence and better prepare for the interview. You should start by answering common interview questions and familiarizing yourself with the company and its values. Recording yourself on a computer or phone video can also be beneficial to evaluate your performance, identify areas of improvement, and adjust your body language if needed.

 Talking about prior experiences of overcoming failure or adversity is also recommended, as this is a common question during interviews. Lastly, you should prepare a list of questions to ask the employer to show your interest in the company and the position. All these tips can help you ace your video interview and increase your chances of getting hired.

Pick the Right Attire

If you need help with how to dress for your video interview, it is recommended that you dress in formal attire rather than casual attire. Even if your regular work attire does not require a blazer and slacks, dressing up for your online meeting can leave a positive impression on your potential employer.

Check Your Computer Tech

Ensuring your computer is ready to go is crucial when preparing for a video interview. To avoid technical difficulties during the interview, it’s essential to run through a technical requirements checklist beforehand. This will help ensure that your computer is set up correctly and ready to go, allowing you to focus on delivering a great interview.
