Make your video interview successful

Share this post

Nowadays, more and more candidates who apply for Household Staff jobs are invited for an initial video interview prior to a face to face meeting with their potential employer.

It makes sense because interviews via Skype, Whatsapp, Facetime, etc save a lot of time for both an employer and a candidate, and help avoid unnecessary travel expenses, especially if the candidate is abroad.
That is why Morgan & Mallet International decided to provide some tips on how to prepare yourself for a successful video interview.

  • Video setting up. An integral part of a video interview is the quality of the sound, video and internet connection. Make sure that your interlocutor will hear and see you well. It is also very important to set up your camera at eye-level so that you are looking directly into the camera in order to make a proper eye contact. 
  • Choosing the location make sure that you have selected some quiet place with good lighting and presentable or neutral background. We would not recommend having an interview in a café, park, your car or while walking as you or your interviewer may be distracted by the background noise or your background in general, and finally it may leave a negative impression.
  • Your outfit. Even though you are at home where you are used to wearing casual clothes, it is essential to look smart and presentable for a video interview, so preferably wear a shirt or a suit. You have to take video interviews as seriously as interviews in an office. Make sure that you have your CV in front of you and you are ready to follow it with the interviewer. It may demonstrate that you are an organised person.

Those are some basic things that you can do in order to make a good impression on your potential employer.

Consider a video interview as a privilege of technological progress that was made to save your time, especially if you are looking for a job in other countries.
