Preparing for your interview
If you will be interviewing by Skype, we suggest you read our recommendations for a successful interview:
If you do not already have Skype installed on your computer, you can download it free at www.skype.com. After downloading, you can create a free account - there is no cost for using Skype with other Skype users.
Make sure you are in a QUIET location, without background noise (traffic, phones, dogs, babies, etc)
Make sure you have a good speed internet connection, with working webcam, speakers and microphone (or headset) and TEST EVERYTHING before the interview begins. In order to test your Skype connection, you can add the Skype user echo123 - this is a call testing service which allows you to check your sound and microphone.
Be online at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time of the interview.
Dress professionally/smartly. This doesn't mean you have to wear a suit and tie (but you can if you wish) however we recommend you wear a smart shirt, and make sure your hair is tidy.
Try to relax and not feel nervous. If you are not used to using a webcam, try talking with a friend by webcam in advance, to get used to it.
