If you were referred to the position by a Recruitment Specialist, call the consultant immediately afterwards and let them know how the it went. If you are still interested in being considered for the role let the Recruiter know, so they can advise the hiring manager. If you have applied directly to the position yourself, send the hiring manager or interviewer a follow up email to thank them for their time and tell them that you are looking forward to hearing from them.
Many interviewers use competency based or behavioural questions. This method asks candidates to provide examples of situations at work where they have used certain skills, or perform tasks to achieve a desired outcome. In giving these answers, the candidate displays the competencies required in the role. The most effective way to answer these questions is by following the STAR technique:
Most of the time, the interviewer(s) will give you an opportunity to ask questions. Use the questions you prepared, or any you may have thought of during the interview. Refrain from asking questions on salary, bonuses, holidays and other benefits during the first interview. Do remember to do your research on your market value in the instance you are asked for your salary expectations. If at the end, you feel you are still interested in the position, tell the interviewer. They value knowing there and then if the candidate is keen to progress. Regardless of how you feel, thank them for their time.
You will mostly likely be asked to provide 1 – 3 real-life examples to demonstrate one particular competency. In preparation for the interview, review the job description or advertisement and identify the key competencies required. Think about examples of times in your career when you have displayed those competencies. Be descriptive but succinct in your answers and try not to digress. If you do not have a work experience example, think about when you have used these skills in other areas of your life.
Clear space, clear mind
Get into the space you’re using for the interview 10 minutes before the call. Do a little tidying – the things behind you say something about you and removing some clutter will help you think more clearly and minimize distractions. This also reduces the chances of your interviewer being distracted by anything untoward in the background.
It can be challenging to get a deep personal connection via video. To ensure you make an impact on your interviewer, make sure your face is well lit. This will allow them to more easily see your facial expressions and read your body language.
When setting up, take the time to try a couple of different positions. To help with lighting, try not to sit with a window or source of light in your back, which would leave your face in the dark, or a bright lamp to the side, which would only illuminate one side of your face and cast a shadow on the other side. The best option would be to sit facing a window or source of light, as long as it isn’t blinding or bothering you. Once you feel comfortable with your setup and your face is lit to a Spielbergian level, it’s time to shine. Sit close to the camera so that your face fills most of the screen, and look straight down the barrel of the camera as much as possible.
One of the downsides of video interviewing is that it’s harder to come across as deeply interested. To show that you’re engaged in the conversation with your interviewer, practice “active listening” where you can. In short, this means actively listening and responding to what they’re saying.
If you’re not usually overtly physically expressive, try to summarize what you’re hearing from your interview to demonstrate understanding. This can also help you develop insightful follow-up questions.
