Ace that Skype interview
Why do I keep writing about Skype—I barely know what it is.
But, naturally, that does not stop me.
Simply Hired’s Laura Backes writes about how to do this video-like phone interview. First, the background—think about this—you want a simple but not boring background. Maybe a bookshelf. Avoid white walls.
Lighting is also important. Overhead fluorescents wipe you out. Maybe light from a window?
For clothing—lose the jammies, of course. Maybe a nice basic shirt and jacket. Women may want to check their makeup before game time.
Look at the camera—not the screen.
Practice with a friend who has Skype…see how you are playing.
Because this may not be a game.
