I agree. Sometimes they might not record it and would want the video conference be presented in the way it was originally recorded. What is your idea about video interviews using a tablet device like an ipad?

In Sri Lanka, since it is a small country and most of our tech businesses are based in Colombo, they always ask people to be physically present in the office for the interview. It is only when you apply for a foreign company that you have to conduct video interviews. The problem is, we don't have stable electricity supply and the electricity can suddenly go off without no warning whatsoever.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

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.
