As companies adopt the current market trend of allowing employees to work remotely, here are vital tips to know before attending that remote job interview.

Do your research about the industry, company and role before the interview

Before attending any job interview remotely, it is very important to research about the industry, the background of the company and the role. This is because, in many instances, the interviewing panel wants to be sure you are aware of the current market trends and events within the industry.

It might be very difficult to have a good interview for a company you know almost nothing about. You might not have all the details about the company besides what you find on the internet, word of mouth from employees or former employees, but you should be aware of the role and what your responsibilities will be.

Do your homework about questions to expect

Based on the role you are interviewing for, you need to prepare ahead for likely questions. These are some very popular interview questions:

Tell me about yourself
Why are you leaving your current job?
Do you have any additional qualifications or skills that set you apart from the crowd?
Why should we give you this job?
How will you handle difference of opinion in a team?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Tell us about a time when you had to be flexible/adaptable?
What interests you the most about this role?
What is the future of this industry in 10 years?
How do you manage stressful situations?

These interview questions asked are to identify:

Your ability to think creatively
Your ability to solve problems
Ability to make bold decisions
Communication skills
Presentation and report skills (in some instances)
If you can fit in
Be on time

Punctuality really matters and might turn off your interviewer or interviewing panel. So, don’t be late. Be on time, and ready to go.
