Prepare Your Space for Online Interviews

Prepare Your Space for Online Interviews

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

You should find a quiet, well-lit, and professional-looking place where you can interview without interruptions or distractions. You should also adjust your camera angle, background, and lighting to ensure that you are visible and clear on the screen. You can use a plain wall, a bookshelf, or a virtual background to create a neutral and appropriate backdrop. You should also avoid any noises, such as phones, alarms, or pets, that might disrupt the conversation.


Buy a ring light but don’t point it at your face. Have it bounce off the wall in front of you onto your face. This will avoid glare on your glasses or your eyes which will be painful to your vision. Wear clothes that pop against your background. Plug your internet connection directly into your computer to avoid the low bandwidth issues that sometimes damage interviews.
