10 Tips for Attending a Virtual Interview:
1. Pick a quiet, well-lit place to interview where you can talk freely without an elaborate backdrop so that you can be the focal point
on the screen. Remove anything distracting behind you and keep it neutral.
2. Doing a run through interview with a friend beforehand is helpful because your first few virtual calls are likely to feel awkward,
especially if you must retrain yourself to watch the camera and not the screen. Play around with everything beforehand so that
when it’s interview time, you can shine without being distracted by the program.
3. Alternatively, Catalent offers a virtual connection test prior to your meeting, please reach out to your Recruiter or Recruitment
Coordinator to set up a test, this only takes up to 5 minutes.
4. Getting Facebook notifications during your interview is distracting and unprofessional. Before your interview, make sure all other
windows on your computer are closed (especially if they make noise).
5. When it comes to what you wear, treat your virtual interview like an in-person interview and dress professionally from head to
toe (or at least from waist-up!). A professional dress code with video interviews is expected, not excused.
6. It is very tempting to watch yourself or your interviewer during a virtual session but looking directly at the video camera is the
only way to maintain direct eye contact with your interviewer.
7. Don’t be afraid to help yourself with post-it notes or a copy of your resume handy when you interview. A benefit of having a
virtual interview is that you can have a cheat sheet in front of you so that you don’t have to memorize everything you want to
8. Make sure your notes are easily scannable so that you use them as quick reminders, not a script. While having notes is certainly
a plus, relying too heavily on them can cause awkward pauses during your interview. An interviewer won’t be impressed if they
only see the top of your head during the interview, so while having notes is good, be sure to use them sparingly.
9. Not all physical cues translate from in-person interviews to virtual interviews, which make the ones that do even more
important. Be sure to have good posture and relax your shoulders to avoid stiffness.
10. Treat your virtual interview the same as if you participated in an on-site interview. Send a note to the recruiter/interviewer/panel
within 24-48 hours if you have the proper contact information.
