Doing online Interviews

Had my first automated online interview about two weeks ago.. it was bizarre. I had to pretend it was like a proper job interview…make up, hair, clothes…and I had to find a place that I would be uninterrupted in my house and answer some difficult questions. I set up my laptop on the desk on top of a few text books so that it would become almost eye level.

It was pretty strange…there was a few practice questions that you could practice with and I spent a good half an hour doing them again and again..because you are able to review the video and every time I listened to myself I was like damn why did I do that?

Luckily for the real thing, there was no chance to do it again and again…otherwise I would be there ALLLL day. There was a chance to view the video recordings of yourself at the end…of course I did not choose to watch myself. Too cringe worthy.

But anyways, I found out that I have somehow made it to the second stage with a live video interview next week..that will be another first.

How does one shake hands across the net? Do you just wave? Or do you still do that awkward elbow greeting?

Wish me luck! I will update on that experience next week…
