Like candidates, employers are working to speed up the hiring process. Technology is playing a major role in getting things moving. Video Interviews allow employers to come together with candidates without incurring costs associated with travel. Body language (aka nonverbal communication) – not seen during a phone interview – can help you connect with your interviewer.

Approach it just as you would any other face to face interview. Prepare. Dress professionally. Take notes, have your resume accessible, and make sure to show ’em your pearly whites.

Show ’em your pearly whites.

Familiarize yourself with your surroundings. Use gestures, and make direct eye contact with the camera, throughout the interview.

For free video calling, try Skype. A Wi-Fi connection should be used for best results, and accounts are easy to set up.
