We at MACRO.CCS find ourselves increasingly using Skype as an interview tool. Granted, it can be rather buggy and choppy, but in the end it serves as a good tool for face-to-face time with candidates who live far from our offices in the greater Seattle, and Los Angeles, areas. However, during these interviews we’ve noticed that people don’t always prepare and present themselves as well as they should and thus decrease their chances of interview-success. Following is a discussion of what we’ve noticed, and how it can be improved upon to increase the likelihood of interview-success.
The more preparation, the less buggy, and the more professional and successful your next Skype interview can be.
