Skype interview etiquette

A few tips for those of you that arrange skype interviews:

1) Do wear the same attire you would wear for an on-campus interview.  Business dress is recommended.

2) Do situate your camera or laptop in a quiet room where you will not be interrupted by other people coming or leaving during your interview.

3) Do make sure your camera/laptop is charged or plugged in so you do not have to interrupt your interview to plug it in.

4) Be aware of how you appear on camera.  Test your camera before the interview to ensure that the lighting is not too bright or too dim and that your distance from the camera is appropriate – we do want to see more of you than your face, but we do not need to see the entire room behind you.

Happy Skyping!
