Acing A Video Interview

video interviewIn the field of dentistry, video interviewing is quickly becoming a favorite just as in other fields. If you are looking for a job in the dental industry, it’s possible that you may be required to participate in a video interview.  There are some things that you should do to prepare and ensure that everything will run smoothly.

In a blog post from ETS Dental, a dental recruiting firm, they list 6 tips for acing a video interview. One tip, that is a very important one, is your connection.  In order to make a good connection with the employer you are interviewing with, you need to be sure that your internet connection is good. The last thing you want is a skipping video or a connection that drops.

Another tip is to dress your best.  Just like in a face to fact interview, you want to look your best to make a good impression. You may think that the employer can only see your face, but you never know when you may need to stand up or move into a position that would show otherwise.

Lastly, you should practice. Talking into a camera is different than speaking with someone in person. You should practice looking directly into the camera and avoid looking at the screen or around the room when talking.

These are 3 great tips from ETS Dental.  To read the other 3 tips and ace the interview for good, check out the full article here: News and Reflections for Dental Practice owners, Dental Practitioners, and Dental Students: 6 Tips to Ace a Video Interview.
