7 VERY IMPORTANT TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR A ZOOM INTERVIEW!

TIP #1. DOWNLOAD THE ZOOM SOFTWARE THE DAY BEFORE YOUR INTERVIEW TAKES PLACE AND FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE PLATFORM.

This is important. Lots of candidates download the Zoom software a few minutes before their interview starts, and they then realize they have to register for an account, and they can’t get it to work on time!

If you aren’t ready at the start of your Zoom interview, you will fail because it demonstrates a lack of planning and organizational skills.

When you download the Zoom platform, test the sound, and check your mic settings. The last thing you want to happen at the start of your Zoom interview is that you cannot hear the interviewer, or they can’t hear you!

TIP #2. CHOOSE A QUIET LOCATION FOR YOUR ZOOM INTERVIEW THAT IS FREE FROM DISTRACTIONS!

Make sure the room you have your Zoom interview in is quiet, and don’t forget to tell everyone in your house to not disturb you until your interview is over. If you have any pets, keep them out of the room. The last thing you need is for your cat to jump up on your table during the interview!

TIP #3. CHARGE YOUR LAPTOP, COMPUTER, OR DEVICE BEFORE THE ZOOM INTERVIEW & MAKE SURE THERE IS A STRONG INTERNET CONNECTION!

You can pretty much be certain the hiring manager who undertakes your Zoom interview will have a strong internet connection. So, if the internet cuts out during your interview, or you lose the connection, it is likely to be your fault! You do not want this to happen. Make sure you have a strong WIFI or internet signal in the room you are going to undertake the Zoom interview.

TIP #4. CHECK YOUR BACKGROUND AND LIGHTING

Before you start your Zoom interview, look at your background and what’s behind you. This is what the hiring manager will see! Does it look professional, is it bright enough, or does it look dull, untidy, or unprofessional? First impressions are very important during a Zoom interview, so make sure you consider the tiny details because these will make a big difference!

TIP #5. WEAR A PROFESSIONAL OUTFIT

Just because a Zoom interview isn’t in-person, you still have to create a positive impression. My advice is to wear a smart outfit, a shirt, jacket, and tie for example because it tells the interviewer you have high standards, and you genuinely want the job. If you can’t be bothered to dress professionally for your Zoom interview, it doesn’t set a good example.

TIP #6. GO ONLINE 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE ZOOM INTERVIEW STARTS

A great way to show the interviewer you are fully prepared for your Zoom interview is to log on to the Zoom platform ten minutes before the start of the interview. If you log on early, it allows you to test the software again, to solve any last-minute glitches and to also settle yourself in preparation for the start of the interview.

TIP #7. THINK ABOUT HOW YOU ARE GOING TO INTRODUCE YOURSELF AT THE START OF YOUR ZOOM INTERVIEW.

Lots of people ask me on this channel… “Richard, how do I introduce myself at the start of a Zoom interview?”Well, the best thing to do is, when the interviewer comes online is to simply hold your hand up and say, “Hello, my name is Richard, pleased to meet you.” That’s all you need to say. The interviewer will then introduce themselves and explain what will happen during the interview.

ZOOM INTERVIEW QUESTION #1 – Tell Me About Yourself?

TIP: For this opening interview question, we recommend you use a tried and tested way to structure your answer. For us, that has to be the S.E.A.T formula which stands for:

S – SKILLS AND QUALITIES you have that match the job description.

E – EXPERIENCE relevant to the role.

A – ACHIEVEMENTS you have gained in your life so far.

T – TYPE of person you are and what you will do in the role!

TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF EXAMPLE ANSWER

SKILLS AND QUALITIES – Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed for this position today.Over the years, I have gained numerous skills and qualities that are a match for the job description. I have strong communication skills, I know how to provide excellent customer service and quickly solve complaints, I can be relied upon to work collaboratively with my co-workers, and I am able to work under pressure and solve challenging problems.

EXPERIENCE – I already have the experience that will allow me to get up to speed quickly in this role and contribute to the team. For example, in my last role, I was the first point of contact for all company clients and customers, and I was required to deal with suppliers and contractors.

ACHIEVEMENT – I already have a good track record of achievement. To give you an example of this, in my last job, I came up with an idea that helped the business collect more online customer reviews which helped the business increase company sales.

TYPE OF PERSON – I am the type of person who always takes responsibility for difficult challenges, and I will always undertake duties that are outside of my job description to help the business continually succeed.

ZOOM INTERVIEW QUESTION #2 – Why Do You Want To Work For Us?

It is really important you carry out some RESEARCH into the company you are applying to join before your Zoom interview. It only takes 5 minutes to research a company, and my advice is to:

(1). Look at their website ABOUT US page and find out about their history and plans for the future.

(2). Familiarise yourself with their products and services.

(3). Follow them on social media and take note of their latest news stories.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO WORK FOR US? EXAMPLE ANSWER

“I have wanted to work for your company for some time now. I researched you in detail before applying for this position and I was impressed with your track record of success, the manner in which you treat your employees, the great products and services you offer, and your ambitious plans. I want to work for your organization because I want to be pushed and challenged, I want to work on exciting tasks and projects, and I want to work alongside like-minded, ambitious people who I can learn from to help me continually improve both personally and professionally.”

ZOOM INTERVIEW QUESTION #3 – What Are Your Strengths?

This question will come up during your Zoom interview! Now, the best way to answer this question is to cross-match any strengths you have with the job description. Now, the interviewer will be looking out for certain strengths and they want to hear examples of where you have demonstrated these strengths in a previous role. After all, anybody can say that they are a good team worker, but giving evidence of this strength will set you apart from the competition.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? EXAMPLE ANSWER

“My strengths are closely aligned with the job description. These include being an excellent COMMUNICATOR AND LISTENER, being ADAPTABLE AND FLEXIBLE, and being COMMERCIALLY AWARE. For example, in my last role, I always listened to customers carefully to find out what their needs were because this then enabled me to sell them the right products, and to also solve any problems they had. Good customer service always resulted in more sales.

In my last job, I was always flexible and adaptable. For example, a work colleague went off sick for three weeks, and I volunteered to do their work in addition to my own to help out the business.

Also, in my last job, I was always commercially aware. This meant I always tried to help the business save money by being frugal with resources, and I always made sure I was a positive role model whilst dealing with customers and clients because this helped to build trust, which again, increased company revenue.”

ZOOM INTERVIEW QUESTION #4 – What’s Your Biggest Weakness?

This is, undoubtedly, one of the hardest questions to answer during a Zoom interview. It is one of those questions where lots of candidates end up failing because they give a weakness that is going to be required in the role. Before we give you a great answer to this tough interview question, here’s a list of weaknesses to avoid.

  1. Do not say you are a PERFECTIONIST. So many people use this as their weakness during Zoom interviews and they end up failing as a result! Being a perfectionist is certainly not a weakness!
  2. Do not say your weakness is the fact you GET IRRITATED easily. Remember, in the vast majority of jobs, you must work alongside other people, and if they irritate you, you won’t be a good fit for the team!
  3. Do not say your weakness is that you are not very good at WORKING UNDER PRESSURE. In virtually all job roles nowadays you will have multiple tasks and projects to work on, and working under pressure will be the norm!

So, what is the BEST WEAKNESS to give in a Zoom interview? Let’s look at our example answer:

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST WEAKNESS? EXAMPLE ANSWER

“My biggest weakness is that I get anxious if ever I have to give talks or presentations to large groups of people. However, this is an area I am keen to build confidence in, so if the opportunity came up in this role to develop my skills in this area I would be keen to give it a try.”

And another good weakness to give in a Zoom interview is:

“My biggest weakness is that I find it difficult asking other people for help when I need it. I tend to spend too long trying to figure things out myself when of course the fastest way to do things would be to simply ask my co-workers for assistance and guidance. However, I am aware of my weakness and I am taking positive steps to be more mindful in situations like this whenever they do occur.”

MORE ZOOM INTERVIEW QUESTIONS TO PREPARE FOR:

Now, there are more Zoom interview questions we strongly urge you to prepare for. These are:

  1. Why do you want to leave your job?
  2. How would you deal with a difficult customer?
  3. How would you deal with conflict with a co-worker?
