    Interviewing can be tough for job-seekers no matter where you are in your career. It's especially true if you're braving your first video interview. As more and more companies rely on video interviewing, it's important to get used to this practice. Our agency can help you get there. 

    3 Tips To Prepare For Your Video Interview

    Even if you're a natural during in-person interviews, you might be thrown off by video interviewing. As a job agency in Crystal Lake, we see plenty of people navigate this process. Here are our three top tips for avoiding common issues: 

    • Make sure your tech works. So many tech problems are avoidable. Test your video and audio to make sure everything's working. If you're using an unfamiliar video platform, take the time to familiarize yourself. If your internet connection isn't strong enough, libraries can often supply quiet rooms for this purpose.   
    • Pick appropriate attire. Even for a video interview, you'll want to be completely dressed for an interview. That means no pajama pants! If possible, try to wear business clothes which reflect a company's culture, whether it's business formal or business casual. Avoid busy patterns, solid whites, or solid blacks, as these can cause camera issues. 
    • Practice makes perfect.  If you still have nerves about an interview, it's always worthwhile to practice in advance. Ask a friend or family member to do a video run-through. Ask them to keep a watch for your posture and eye contact. It may be tempting to make eye contact with the screen, but you'll want to look at your webcam while talking!
