The face to face job interview disappeared when offices closed their doors in March. However, as lockdown restrictions ease and many of the Global workforce return to work, we have seen that employers are continuing to use the form of online interviews with candidates. Based on our experience and feedback from clients and candidates, we’re sharing our guide to making a success at an online job interview.
The new phenomenon of online interviews has many positives for those looking to embark on a job move. No more will candidates have to sneak out of the office for “dentist” appointments in work hours, be held up by a long commute or face other delays.
But on the downside, a number of technical problems and harder to read body language clues can make the online interview process feel like a disorienting out of body experience.
But fear not. We are here to help you brush up on your traditional interview techniques and adapt them to the new world of online interviews.
Traditional interview norms still apply, as ultimately, this is still an interview! Start by researching the company, making the most of its website to learn more about the business. There may be news articles in the press, including trade journals, which also present a useful raft of information. We would recommend also looking at employee reviews on Glassdoor; however, treat them with a pinch of salt like you would a TripAdvisor review.
Be clear on your stand-out reasons as to why you want to work for the company – this is a standard question asked at interviews including what can you contribute to the company
Use LinkedIn to find your interviewer and get some more information on their background. It’s always useful to check if you have connections or networking groups in common. And importantly, make sure that your LinkedIn profile is up to date and matches your CV.
Technical difficulties are understandable, but being prepared can make the whole interview run more smoothly.
