I definitely agree with all of Steve Cottle’s recommendations. For me, a Skype interview is 10 times better than a phone interview. I rely a lot on being friendly, respectful, and having proper etiquette while interviewing as well as my knowledge and qualifications. Though I feel confident in my experiences, I also minored in communication studies and during interviews, ect, half my brain is focused my responses while the other half is thinking about the non-verbal signals I’m giving and getting.
I prefer in-person to skype or phone interviews any day of the week. I get a little bit nervous during interviews when I’m unable to get an idea of how the person is reacting to my responses.
