Before you connect to a video interview, choose a quiet place where you know you can speak freely. Make sure you have access to the internet and use a headset to optimize the audio. Check that the background is appropriate and preferably neutral, and that your webcam’s angle is centered on you. Be careful that there is enough light in the space – if it is too light or too dark, it could obscure your image. If you connect via a mobile device, remember to keep it in an elevated, stable and horizontal (‘landscape’) position to improve visibility.
Problems with the connection? Don't panic! Keep another device nearby, such as your mobile phone, in case you need to switch.
