Interviewing for a new job can be one of the most nerve-racking experiences you will likely encounter. And now, as if this process was not difficult enough, we are entering uncharted territory by having to conduct interviews virtually. Before interviews became virtual there were many things an interviewer could focus on, now they will be focused on you, the face on the screen in front of them. So how do you ace your virtual interview and give yourself a competitive edge? In this era of Zoom, Google Meet and countless others platforms, preparation is key to making sure you put your best foot forward.

Pre Interview

Setting

During the interview

After you finish make sure to wait a few seconds before saying anything or getting up to move. You’ll want to make sure your call is fully disconnected.  Be sure to send a follow up email thanking them for your interview and letting them know you’re looking forward to hearing from them, just like you would do after a traditional face to face interview. Lastly, make sure to celebrate your accomplishment.  It’s never easy to change the ways we’ve all been doing things and to learn a new way to do things.
