Virtual interviewing is the norm these days, and will likely continue to be common even after the pandemic has ended. This presents some unique challenges for interviewees, but also many new opportunities.
Use these tips to break out of your Zoom window and stick out in your interviewer’s memory long after the “End Call” button is pressed.
Prepare In Advance
In many ways, preparing for a virtual interview is like preparing for an in-person one: You still have to do your homework. The best way to stand out in an interview is to demonstrate your knowledge of the company and its goals.
You should understand the company’s background and where its executives came from. Familiarize yourself with their markets and know who their clients are. The better you understand a company, the better you can demonstrate how and where you can add value.
