A few of our practical tips include:

  2. Choose your background, camera position and lighting carefully.

  3. Choose a room that will be distraction and noise free – ensure you will not be disturbed by family/pets/ringing phones etc.

  4. Dress for a face-to-face interview! You will feel more confident and prepared for the unexpected.
