Be yourself while conducting the interview. To help ensure a successful interview, make sure you are clear about your expectations for the successful candidate. Describe the job as it really is without embellishment.

Before the commencement of interview find out everything you can about the person you are interviewing. At the very least, become familiar enough with his or her resume, cover letter, or other submitted materials so you don’t waste the first half of the interview re-learning basic biographical information and have it with you during the interview to refer to.

Decide where you are going to have the interview beforehand, and choose a comfortable setting conducive to conversation. Uncomfortable settings can be intimidating to applicants, and you may lose a potentially valuable employee. Do not allow phone calls to interrupt
the interview, as it shows a lack of politeness.

You must learn to manage your time. Appearing as though you are in a haste to finish suggests that the applicant’s time is not valued. Avoid scheduling video interviews during times you know are hectic for you, such as the very beginning or end of the day. Once the person has agreed to be interviewed, arrange a specific time convenient for you to carry an online video interview. Clearly state how long you expect the interview to last.

Ask well constructed open-ended questions that do not require just a yes or no answer. Avoid personal questions other than small talk about the weather, directions or traffic.

Video interviewing is becoming very popular.Video conferencing is not only a practical nice-to-have capability, it is a necessity for any modern recruiting organization charged with recruiting truly top talent around the world.
