If you haven’t applied for a new role for a while you may be surprised how interview and recruitment processes have changed in recent years. Today telephone or Skype interviews are a very normal first stage.
Our top tips for performing well on a phone or Skype interview:
- Prepare in the same way as for a face to face interview – do your research and don’t expect ‘just a chat’
- Skype – if you are not a regular Skype user make sure you practice with a friend before hand. Sign up for free at: https://login.skype.com/account/signup-form
- Resist the temptation to look at yourself too much and remember to look at your interviewer.
- Check what’s behind you – what will your interviewer see?
