Learn About the company
Before opting for the company, ask yourself some questions like – Why do you want to do this job? Why do you want to work for this particular company? On what terms the company is different from its competitor? These are common questions so prepare in advance. Prepare for the question why you want a career change?
Experience and examples
Interviewers want to know the details of the person they are hiring. Would they be a good fit for the organization? Relevant experience would be an added advantage. If your experience differs a bit then you can explain them with examples of the past that would prove yourself to be the best fit for the role. Know about the job well and then explain your experience with an example.
Dress to Impress
Dress well even if its a skype interview. It’s all about getting into a mindset that you are giving an interview for an overseas job. A shirt might make you feel confident but a T-shirt would make you feel as if you are chatting with your friends online.
Best location for the interview
Think about the best place you can have the interview. Think about the strong internet connection and background noise. If it’s in your bedroom, tidy up and make it look presentable. Inform everybody before hand not to disturb you during the interview.
Early Bird catches the worm
Check your internet and computer connections well before the interview. There should not be any technical issues during the interview, it will create a bad impression. Log in a bit early to make the interviewer feel that how serious you are about the interview.
