What tips do you have for candidates preparing for a virtual interview? Remote interviews are just like in-person interviews in many ways: You're still trying to make a good impression and communicate your strengths, you're just not doing it from the same room. Preparation is just as important in a remote interview as an in-person interview.
Please consider the following best practices as you prepare for your interview:
- Read instructions and ask questions ahead of time if something is unclear. Make sure that you understand the requirements for the interview and make sure to download any video conference programs and tests ahead of time. For example, Ivanti uses Microsoft Teams for remote phone and video interviewing. If you are not familiar with Teams, please prepare beforehand to make sure you understand the application and how it will function. Your Ivanti Talent Acquisition Partner will also provide login and user instructions before the interview to help you prepare.
- Prepare your interview location: Whether it’s a phone interview or a video interview, make sure you have the interview someplace that is distraction-free. First impressions are important, and you will want to present a professional and organized workspace. Consider the lighting in the room. You will get the best light for example, if you sit in front of a window. Having a a window in the background would put your face in a shadow and make it difficult for the interviewer to see you. Test your chosen workspace prior to the interview.
- Take care of the little things Do your best to anticipate those potential problems and eliminate them before they occur. For a remote interview, this includes closing all unnecessary software on the computer, turning off notifications, ensuring your machine is fully charged, and making sure pets and children are not going to interrupt your conversation.
- Dress appropriately. Avoid clothing or attire that may be distracting. You can be business casual and still be professional.
- Make eye contact. A remote job interview with video is a bit tricky and it is natural to want to look at everything that is happening on screen. So try and look into the camera as much as possible, rather than looking at the screen.
- Be yourself. Help the interviewer find out who you are and help them feel comfortable. Be prepared, be engaged, and listen.
We wish you luck in your interview and other interactions with Ivanti. Please reach out to the Ivanti Talent Team if you have any additional questions.
