The challenge of conducting a video interview lies in the limits of your chosen technological medium – if you have a slow internet connection (leading to bad or diminished audio) or a low-resolution camera (leading to poor reception of your appearance), you may face additional challenges in leaving a strong impression with your interviewer to earn a call back. They key to impressing someone over video conference is to be extra-clear and articulate in your responses to ensure that you are communicating the right message throughout the session. Below are three keys to leaving a positive and lasting impression on your interviewer via Skype, Google Hangout, or FaceTime:

  1. Enunciate carefully. You don’t want to slow down your speaking pace to the point where it sounds unnatural; rather, be conscious of what you are saying and how you say it. If you have a large and diverse vocabulary, think about using simpler language to limit the length of your sentences. Sometimes less is more.
  2. Stay cheerful and smile during the interview. Readingbody language over an internet camera can be quite difficult. To compensate, make sure you look into the camera with a genuine smile and try hard to connect in a positive way with your interviewer. It is tempting to look at your reflection shown on the side/bottom window on Skype or FaceTime, so be aware that to engage your interview eye-to-eye, you need to look into your camera’s lens.
  3. Request a follow-up interview in person. As your video interview comes to a close, it’s a good idea to request a follow-up meeting in person as the next step. This is of course dependent on your proximity to your interviewer and the opportunity; but if you are willing to travel a certain distance to meet directly, take every step you can to make that happen. Demonstrating your strong interest in meeting will convey a level of seriousness that can help put your candidacy over the top.

In summary, doing well in a video interview means being extra careful about your pace and manner of speaking and taking initiative to ask for a follow up interview face-to-face. Remain positive and enthusiastic to put yourself in a good place to advance in the recruiting process.
