web interviews are becoming more practical as they don't require much investment.

@Hospice_Houngbo, I agree with you. More and more interviewers are using tools like Skype to conduct web interviews. The advantage of video interview is that interviews can see the body language of the candidate and can measure his confidence levels.

Also be sure of EST, CT and PST timings. Else EST people catch PST guy in quite early in the morning.

@_hm, good point. We should also not forget to check if day light saving is applied or not. Sometimes because of day light saving confusion we miss reading the exact time.

The best way to succeed a web interview is to plan in advance and make sure that you avoid any potential distraction that may hinder the interview.


@Hospice_Houngbo, I totally agree with you. I think its always better to keep one more system ready because sometimes system gets stuck. Its always better to be near to the modem if we are using wireless modem so that we don't encounter lag.

The problem is, we don't have stable electricity supply and the electricity can suddenly go off without no warning whatsoever.


@nimantha.d, I think its always better to use laptops instead of desktops because even if the power goes you will have backup. I use small batter backup to power my wireless modem which helps me to keep the Internet connection even if there is no power supply.

Whenever I was using this, most of the time my camera had a window in the background and I'm sure that might have been a distraction to the other party.


@nimantha.d, I agree with you. Having a window in the background distracts the other party. Its always better to cover the windows and use artificial light to improve the brightness so that the other party can see your face properly.

For me, the biggest struggle during a video interview has always been the internet connection.

@TaimoorZ, I think its always better to watch the video in low resolution mode if internet connection is very slow. Some times i let the complete video download and then watch the video.

For me, the biggest struggle during a video interview has always been the internet connection. The lags in voice during the interview can make it really frustrating for the interviewer. To avoid that, I try to have a very high speed link and avoid using wireless connectivity. Wired LAN often works better and has lower lags.

When video commenting I highly doubt that everyone here will go through the trouble of readjusting their cameras and minding about the lighting of the room. They will simply turn on the camera and say whatever they have to say. When there are a lot of video comments, people barely pay attention to every single content on every single video.

I really didn't pay attention to the background until now. Whenever I was using this, most of the time my camera had a window in the background and I'm sure that might have been a distraction to the other party. Thanks for the tips. Much appreciated.

These are very helpful tips as well. I myself has missed a lot of things (nothing of which are actually important) because I confuse the time sometimes. Especially tennis matches and baseball matches.
