Tips for Skype Interviews


More and more often these days, Recruiters are using Skype to meet and interview candidates who don’t live close enough to come into our offices for an in-person interview. Here are 4 tips for How To Prepare For a Skype Job Interview:

1. Download and install ahead of time
Don’t commit the mistake of installing Skype only the time prior to an interview. Your Internet speed might ditch at the last moment. Also, prior to former use, you need to form a user account, which is also time consuming. You should download and install it hours before or may be days, before the interview is about to take place.

2. Know your Skype address
Your Skype address is not your email address. You can find your “Skype Name” by logging into your Skype Account and looking at your account details page. This address is how a recruiter can find you and connect to you to perform the interview.

3. Choose an appropriate photo and username
Be careful with the username you select, followed with a voluntary picture you upload, discernible to the recruiter. This will shape a former impression of you. Hence, it’s helpful to choose a username and photo that goes hand-in-hand for an interview round.

4. Configure on two devices
Skype is known as cross-platform, which means that you are capable of installing it on your Window-based desktop, Apple-based phone and even Android tablet. Downloading Skype on maximum two devices will make sure that if your shirk device fails, you can immediately opt for the second device in seconds. It is merely known as planning.
