Welcome to this episode of Carmen’s Coaching Corner. In this very short 6-minute episode I share a few tips on how to prepare for a Skype interview. I received this question via email after a talk I gave on interviewing with confidence. The same tips can be applied to any kind of video conferencing e.g. Zoom, FaceBook Messenger etc.

Key Tips:


  1. Get the app or download the software to your tablet, laptop, device
  2. Make sure your device can support the technology
  3. Test!!
  4. Ensure you are in a quite place, minimal background noise
  5. Uncluttered background
  6. Tape your interview notes to your screen! Do not obscure the camera lens
  7. Make sure you are lit from the front
  8. Position camera slightly above eye level
  9. Test your sound, consider using a headset with a good mic
  10. Relax!
