Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
Good morning. It’s Tuesday, March 26, 2013, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!
1. Test out the system they’ll be using.
Do this at least a day in advance so you can get signed up if necessary and handle any tech issues. Is your Internet connection up? Is your display name professional (not fratboy18)? Is your camera working? Does a separate mic sound better than the built-in? Are your speakers working? On the day you don’t want to be fretting about technical nonsense.
2. Dress the set
Recruiters say they like to see you in front of an uncluttered white wall. No team flags, Bieber posters, coffee cups or half eaten donuts. Have a glass of water nearby for before the call, but don’t drink while you’re on camera.
3. Light the scene.
Check the natural light 24 hours in advance. Window light from 3/4 front should give your best look. Avoid heavy shadows that will make you look old and tired. Strong light behind you will cast your face into darkness, front light will flatten your features and overhead light is ugly. If it’s dark, bounce light from a desk lamp or two.
4. Close apps and noisemakers
Make sure that other applications and phones are shut off, and that your spouse, baby and dog know not to disturb you.
5. Look into the camera
Position the camera to eye level and look straight at it when you talk and not at the image on your screen, so you’ll be addressing the interviewer not your desk. Try printing a picture of the interviewer and taping it so their eyes are very close to the camera – then talk to the picture. Or talk to a pic of Brad Pitt if that works for you! This is hard – practice it.
6. Get dressed up
Don’t just dress your top half – even if they can’t see your feet, you’ll feel more professional if you’re wearing real shoes and not bunny slippers! Some collars can look messy, and patterns or bright colors can distract. Ladies- try a little extra makeup to strengthen your features and check it out on camera. Check it all out on camera.
7. Do a full dress rehearsal
A day ahead, do a full run-through. Have a friend call you and record it. Sit back a little for a wider shot, and don’t slump over your the desk. Be very aware of whose turn it is to speak as overlaps are problematic. Review how you come across and if necessary do another rehearsal.
8. Going live on air
On the day, with production under control, you still have to do all the things you’d do in an in-person interview: know what they are looking for and tell your success stories with enthusiasm: you have to be a little more animated than usual to come across well on a video call. Be passionate and curious, listen well and don’t ramble.
Thorough preparation will let your strengths shine through. So, are you ready for your close-up?
