For those who haven’t been actively job searching for a while, it may come as a surprise that more employers are asking for an initial interview over Skype instead of an in-person interview. It’s simply a more efficient process for employers to nail down the best-fitting candidates to come in for the in-person interview.

While this may simplify matters for the employer, it doesn’t necessarily for you – the job candidate, especially if you aren’t an everyday user of Skype.

Proper preparation is needed, including making sure all the technical equipment works and setting up your area and the background (for a video conference).

Find out tips on how to properly prepare for a job interview using Skype and acing it as you would an in-person interview here.
