Cracking a job interview has always been daunting, but Covid-19 has made it even more difficult. Since a majority of organizations have now adopted digital infrastructure, it is quite common that the initial rounds of the entire interview process will happen online.

So here are 7 tips you should follow:

  1. Have a steady internet connection at home - make sure that you sit in a noise-free area, away from the household and other distractions. Additionally, have a clean and clutter-free background;
  2. Get formally dressed for the interview even if it is happening online - the company might ask you to switch on your camera;
  3. Be sure to look directly into the camera and keep yourself focused;
  4. Be very articulate and clear - remember it is more difficult to understand an idea or an argument online than in person;
  5. Research about the company beforehand and show interest in the company;
  6. Avoid 'yes'/ 'no' answers and share your past work experiences in detail;
  7. Ask about your salary details separately to the HR - do not negotiate unless you are prompted to do so by the employer.
