Success at a virtual hiring event is about preparing beforehand, being on time, looking your best, and leaving the hiring staff with a great impression. Here are some tips provided by Indeed Career Guide that could be useful to get yourself ready for the virtual interview:

  • Make sure to RSVP ahead of time if you can.
  • Find a quiet location with good internet connection.
  • Ensure that you won’t be interrupted.
  • Have a copy of your resume and any other notes ready to reference.
  • Set out a glass or bottle of water for yourself.
  • Check that your webcam and audio are working.
  • Close any windows, tabs or applications on your computer that you’re not using.
  • Set your phone to silent if you are using your laptop for the interview.
  • Check that the background behind you is neutral and free of clutter.
  • Adjust the lights in the room. If things appear dark or dim, you may want to bring in an extra desk lamp to brighten the space.
  • Avoid the instinct to look directly at your interviewer on the screen while you’re answering a question. Instead, when you speak, direct your gaze at the webcam. 
  • To look your best on camera, avoid bright colors and patterns and opt for softer colors instead.
  • If you are attending a virtual hiring event, you may need to wait your turn to be interviewed in the virtual lobby.
