I just sent an email to my friend about setting up a time for a Skype interview we both have to participate in. 10 minutes late I go over to YouTube and this video pops up at random. Strange how this things happen. The interview video is just what I need. It like that old Twilight Zone episode "What you need". Thanks, great advice.

do not dress up half, sometimes they will ask you to stand up, and you dont wanna flash some things ito their faces

Practical tips that work very well! Also, humor keeps your audience wanting more. Thank you for sharing.

I am a recruiter and am forced to set up many skype interviews. These are excellent tips! I plan to give this link to anyone going on skype interviews for me in the future. The only thing I would add is a message to people with a different mother tongue other than english. Many of the people I submit have thick accents that prevent them from being properly understood. It is one of the top 3 reasons I see people fail to get the job. They should make extra effort to speak slowly and clearly, and when asked to repeat something they said, they should try to find different words to say it. ...but i guess that's not unique to just skype interviews.

Personally hate the idea of talking to a camera instead of the interviewer, it feels really awkward when I last did it -_-"
Sarah Sterling
I've had quite a few successful interviews over Skype and this is great advice. I would add that I always wear something neutral-colored if not professional on bottom, in case something unexpected happens and I have to stand up, potentially on screen! Also I like to know what I'm looking like on screen so I always move the little window with my face to the top, center of the screen (aka right under the camera) so I can look at the camera and keep myself in my peripheral vision.

My interview was terrible , I didnt done anything right :) usefull video!
quinn love
is using headphones a bad idea??
Sarah Marie James
I followed your tips, step by step, and landed an in person interview within 15 minutes of the Skype session.  In fact, I was better prepared than the interviewer. Always good to go above and beyond for interviews.

I watched this video 2 years ago for my graduate study's entrance test. Thanks God, i passed the examination. This video helped me much. I prepared all tips. Anyway, a problem occurred with my office's wifi just a few minutes before the interview, so that i used skype in my smartphone rather than my laptop. Therefore, it is also better to check our internet connection and skype quality.

Best Skype prep I've ever seen!

Usually these kinds of videos have no actual tips, but rather drag out the obvious stuff to fill a video. This, however, was informative and to the point. Well done.

Skype Interview in 15 hours
Sean Smith
thanks so much, this is very helpful... this is gonna be my first video interview
James Roberts
Nicely organized and well-presented, thank you!
Mario Chávez
I recently had a Skype task conversation with a client and she was looking down to the notebook camera. Good point on avoiding that! This short video is crisp and well done, not just useful for interviews but for anything involving YOU (presenting, teaching, showing how something is done, etc.) and your face.
Dan Paulsrud
Very Helpful even for people that aren't interviewing but find themselves on conference calls from home! Cheers.

Mr. Carroll W
Really Skype interviews lol
Mario Hurtado
These are all good tips and presented in an understandable and easy-going format. I would also suggest a couple of things. If you can't control the room noise, a headset can help a ton with sound issues. The downside is that you could look a bit like a call-in center operator. The other suggestion is to make sure you have a strong wifi or other internet connection. The third suggestion is to practice ahead of time and do a dry-run with a friend so the they can give you feedback on how you look and sound.
Gina Tang
Great tips presented in a simple format.  Thanks!
Allison Puccetti Adams

Shira Goldberg Harm Reduction
So many great tips! I do this for The 1 Addiction Show where I interview guests. I remind them to turn off their phone, it's unprofessional, (I have that down pat so don't need help there!) I'm having a really toughtg time using ever to record the sound. J ow can I make sure all systems are a "Go?

Excellent...Thanks!!!!
Ben Weeks
I would advise removing the red books and reflective material, they create visual competition.
Gwen Koen
Handy! Been killing myself trying to look better on Skype. I think one or two jobs were lost because of sound and lighting. Thanks
Chris H
Great tips and examples. I believe stuff in the background will absorb sound, not deflect it. Stuff like drapes, soft furniture, books, carpeting will help prevent echo. Can even hang or drape a comforter, quilt, moving blanket, rug or soft foam mattress topper somewhere.
yvonnemd17
Very helpful. I recommend it.
Ryan Lackey
This is a really excellent how-to. I have to do a TV interview in an hour, and we weren't able to find a rental studio in Bali on a Saturday, so luckily I had my MacBook Air with me. A lot of things were obvious, but this is a clear presentation, and is great as a checklist. This video itself is well produced, too, so it's reassuring as to your competence and knowledge of the subject. A good trick: cover the screen of laptop with a sheet of paper during interview to remember to look at camera.
Elaine Matos
Thank you!
Eugene N
This video is excellent. Great sutff!!!  My first Skype interview experience was terrible, then my friend told me the same tips you mentioned. Made the second and third experience way way better. Only thing I had a hard time with, looking directly into the camera. That took a while to feel comfortable

Listening to this 3 hours before my Skype interview is just gut wrenching.
