Punctuality

Aim to be ready at least 5 minutes beforehand so that you have time to relax and prepare.

Backgrounds

Set up your camera so that it's facing a neutral background, with any distractions removed.

Dress code

Dress appropriately, as you would for a face-to-face interview.

Eye contact

Look directly into the camera and make eye contact with your interviewer to show you are engaged.

Drink

Make sure to grab yourself a drink, you are welcome to bring it along to the interview.  

Noises

Use a room where there is minimal background noise or chance of being disturbed. 

Positioning

Position yourself so that you are in the centre of the screen.

Be yourself

As with face-to-face interviews, video interviews can help showcase you, your skills and personality. It is important that you be yourself and do not let virtual reality obscure who you are in real life.

Lighting

Check that the room has good lighting and that your face is clearly visible.

Calls

If using a mobile phone, divert any incoming calls to voicemail to prevent distraction.

Audio

Consider using headphones for better audio quality.
