We recommend treating your video interview the same as an in-person interview. Be prepared to discuss your applicable experience, knowledge, and skill set. Have an outline of your experience and your resume to review with the hiring manager. Have a prepared list of questions you want to ask. Smile and look at the camera and make eye contact with the person you're interviewing with. Select a quiet location and use headphones if needed.
