Covid changed pretty much everything. Even though many things have returned to “normal,” interviews for many medical and other schools and many job interviews are still held online. These are often in a video chat but are sometimes given in an asynchronous interview format, or Unsupervised Interview Test, where there is no actual connection with a real person at all.
How do you prepare for each? Can a mock interview really help? Are there new skills? In what areas should you shift your attention as you get ready for your interview?
We were helping students with online interview coaching for years before Covid made it an essential skill. You will receive detailed input on:
- Camera positioning
- Microphone positioning to ensure better sound
- Proper choice of attire
- Body language and posture
- Strategic selection of your background
- How to compensate for the lack of personal contact
