6 Tricks to follow before a Video Interview

  1. An hour before the interview start thinking and talking to anyone (only those not native at the interview language) about what you are about to do.
  2. 30 minutes before the interview: get your speech ready — practice as much as you can, although you do not know how things might end-up going, having clear sentences in your head, wether it is your native language or not, will make you gain confidence and remember key words that you want to outline while recording or use in case you get lost.
  3. 15 minutes before the interview, locate where it will take place, have a sense of it, touch the room, chair or microphone to have all elements under control
  4. 10 minutes before the interview — get in front of a mirror and dress for success, it is a matter of confidence to take a look at yourself and repeat in your head that this will be one of the greatest interviews you will ever deliver. Plus you make sure your hair is on place and you do not have anything in between your teeth.
  5. 5 minutes before the interview, get to know your interviewer, have a small chat to understand what you will be asked as well as how this person speaks, his/her tone, and how you can interrupt to make it the talk easier.
