Some Useful Tips on Remote Interviews
Interviewing remotely can be challenging, for many candidates, the situation can feel impersonal, due to the lack of eye-contact and ability to build rapport. However, considering and adopting some of the points below can help you to make a positive impression and, ultimately, succeed at this stage:
- Find a place where you will not be interrupted, lay your CV/ any notes out in front of you so you can refer to them quickly if you need to.
- Have a pen and paper in case you need to make a note of anything, such as the question being asked or something you think you might want to explore later.
- Answer the call with a smile! Smiling can help you to relax and, as a result, you will come across as more positive and friendly.
- Talk clearly and distinctly and think about your pace; if the interviewer is asking you to repeat yourself it might be because you are talking too fast.
- Try to connect with the interviewer in some way to build rapport. Consider what you might have in common and draw on this to create a dialogue
- Take time to consider your answer, if necessary, make it clear to the interviewer that this is what you are doing, rather than just going silent.
- Ask the interviewer to clarify what they are asking you if you are unsure or repeat the question back to them if you want confirmation - listening on the phone can be challenging and interviewers will be sensitive to this.
- Answer the question that was asked and be careful not to go off the point. Support your answers with real-life examples that you have prepared from previous experience.
