Skype Interviewing Tips

Since video is a little different than interviewing in person, pay particular attention to the following:

– Makeup. Too much or high contrasting makeup can cause problems with shadows.
– Dress. Preferably something conservative and dark.
– Hair. Off your face and pulled back to not be distracting or cast shadows. Don’t play with your hair ; )
– Movement. Video can appear choppy, so watch quick movements.
