With the coronavirus, many have had to adjust to the new reality, which involves searching for the ideal candidate with a computer. But what should you avoid when facing one?
The new normality is slowly approaching us, but in the meantime, we have to continue living a normal life despite the peculiar circumstances.
That also means that those who are looking for a job, despite current gloomy forecasts, should be able to continue conducting job interviews.
But, if it is stressful enough to go to a place to judge if you are the right candidate to do a job, what will it be like to do it with your pajamas on and in front of a screen, while showing all the decorations in your house?
Here Are 9 Tips To Excel In Online Job Interview During Covid-19 Pandemic
- Get up, take a shower, put on a suit (and that includes taking off your pajama pants, even if they won’t see each other).
- Make sure that that hour or time that you are going to use in your interview there can be tranquility and peace in your house, without interruptions.
- Look also what you see behind you, put it all so that clothes lying on the bed do not appear or your dog is eating your shoes in the background.
- Some people, oddly enough, get more nervous in front of the camera, so it might be a good idea to familiarize yourself with it sooner and get mental.
- Both the candidate and the head of human resources must turn on the computer up to 15 minutes before, due to any inconvenience or problems that may arise.
- Phones must be kept silent.
- It is a good idea to practice before with a friend or family member.
- Recruiters should be aware that they must include more visual and linguistic cues than they could use in person to show that they are following what the candidate is saying.
- It is always a good idea to give yourself a phone, just in case complications arise and communication is cut off.
