Title: Top 10 Video Conferencing Interview Etiquette

Attend an interview can be quite nerve wrecking
at times whether it is face to face or over a
video conference. Sometimes it ends up costing
you the position. When it comes to being
interviewed there are a few guidelines that you
must follow to ensure you get the job, it is the
same in video conference interviews. This article
is going to lay out video conference interview
etiquette with a few tips and tricks.
1. How to Dress For a Video Conference Interview
As in any interview, it is important to look your
best and this is no different when it comes to
video conference interview attire. Your potential
employer will be looking for things like, the
neatness of your clothing and how you carry
yourself. If you are a man, be sure to dress in
a suit and tie, trim your nails, make sure your
hair is neat and have a clean shaven face. If
you are a woman, there are many styles you may
choose from. However, be sure to dress in
business clothing, such as a pant suit, long
sleeve button down blouse with a pencil skirt or
a business dress. Limit the amount of jewelry
you wear, for example no dangling earrings or
arms full of bracelets. Use a light amount of
makeup and have neatly manicured clean nails.
There are other forms of interviews where the
interviewer might be more casual. However, if you
are not sure about what to wear, keep to the
above mentioned guidelines.
2. Research Information about the Company
Before the video conference interview, be sure to
do some research about the company. The company
will usually give you a link to its website. This
is important because during the interview
progresses, interviewers will expect you to
understand what their company does. They will
also ask you if you have any questions, this is
where you will have the opportunity to ask
anything about the company that you might not
understand. When asking your questions, be sure
to speak clearly and calmly, do not show any fear
or aggression as this will compromise your
chances at getting the job. More info about video

3. Punctuality
It is of great importance to be on time, so be
seated in front of your webcam 15 minutes before
the interview is scheduled, this will give you
some time to go over any details that
might trip you up. This will also keep you from
fumbling around too much when the
video conferencing interview starts, another good
reason to be early is to ensure that everything
is set up correctly.
4. Conversation
It is important to converse with the interviewer.
Remember not to talk so much, or the conversation
becomes one sided. Keep your answers to the point
and do not veer away from the questions that the
interviewer asks, make sure that you have
questions of your own prepared.
5. Politeness
Another important video conferencing interview
etiquette is to use manners throughout the whole
video conferencing interview. Saying please and
thank you will take you a long way. Do not chew
gum. That is unprofessional and can make you out
to be uninterested in the interview. Smile too,
which shows that you have confidence even when
you are nervous. Do not slouch, this will also
show that you may not be very confident and gives
the interviewer the impression that you don't
want to do the interview.
6. No Interruptions
Make sure that your cellular phone is off or on
silent and do not sit on any social media sites
while in the video conferencing interview.
Because it will show the interviewer that your
priorities lie elsewhere and you are not
interested in the job at all. The same thing
applies to taking phone calls. If the phone is on
silent, let the call go to voicemail, you can
always phone back later.
7. Stay in the Interview
Do not let your mind wander or start to daydream
in a video conference interview. The cameras of
today can and will show what you are doing
clearly, which will give the same impression
that taking a phone call. This is also a bad
thing to do as it could give the impression to
your potential employers that you do not take
the interview and position seriously and they
will not want to consider you for the position,
therefore, you would have wasted their time as
well as your own.
8. Never Have A Bad Attitude
Never have a bad attitude towards your
interviewer or past jobs that you did. No company
wants to hear you bad mouthing about previous
employers, because that would show that you
might do the same thing to them. They have a
reputation and don't want you to make them look
bad. If your interviewer looks stern and does
not try and emulate that, just keep on smiling.
Emulating a stern interviewer shows bad conduct
and that is not what any company wants. Thus,
refrain from taking a bad attitude at all.
9. Listen
Listening is a key strategy in going for an
interview. If the interviewer asks you
a question, just listen to it carefully. Do not
halfheartedly take it in. Take your time with the
question and make sure that you have a suitable
answer. If you did your research on the company,
you can show in your answers.
10. Closing
At the end of the interview, let the interviewer
know how suitable you are for the job and that
you will fit in well at the company. If the
question about financial particulars hasn't come
up, do not mention it. The interviewer will get
to that in time. If not in this interview it
will perhaps be in a follow-up interview or when
the company offers you the job. Be polite when
the interviewer ends the interview, and thank him
for his time.
Using these tips and tricks on how to ace a video
conference interview will greatly improve your
chances of getting the job. Being able to master
any of these techniques is one of the best ways
to impress the interviewer and have them
considering you for the position in their
company. Just remember to relax and try not to
let your nerves get the best of you. Good luck
to you and may you be successful in your job
search. https//
