April 17, 2020

Whether you’re a video-interviewing veteran or a virtual novice, consider the tips below from LinkedIn. A link to the full article is at the end of this Daily News post.

The good news is that many of the same approaches and considerations that you bring to in-person candidate interviews will serve you well while conducting video interviews.

Here are some tips on how to ace virtual job interviews:

1. Set a process for how interviews will be run, and communicate clearly and thoroughly with your teammates and candidates.

2. Line up the necessary technology and give it a test run.

3. Put your candidates at ease by sharing expectations, timelines, names of interviewers.

4. Choose a clean, quiet, and well-lit space for your interviews.

5. Practice a compelling (virtual-only) company culture pitch.

6. Be every bit as professional — and personable — as you would be for an onsite interview.

7. Follow up with a thank-you note, a request for feedback, and any next steps.
