- It's highly possible that these days if you're interviewing for a job it could be conducted remotely from initial screening all the way through to a final job offer. This could be through any combination of video calls, phone conversations, and emails. I'm Chris Nodder, and in this course we'll take a look at the steps you can take to prepare for and perform well in a remote job interview for a creative role. We'll cover looking and sounding your best in video meetings and on the phone. The sound quality is probably the most important part of your remote interaction. On top of that, there's a lot you can do with lighting and camera placement alone that will help you come across as more confident and engaged. We'll cover preparing for the interview by finding out more about the company and the job. This upfront detective work is especially important for remote interviews because you won't have the same information available to you as if you were on site. We'll also take a look at different interview formats and question types and how those play out in a remote session. We'll spend some time looking specifically at the types of questions that often catch interviewees out. We'll wrap up the course by talking about what you should expect and what you should do after your remote interviews; and look at the next steps if you get offered the job. There are some surprisingly positive upsides to remote interviews. In this course I'll show you how to make use of them so that you feel more in control and approach the interview process positively. I've recorded this course remotely rather than in LinkedIn studios. Interviewing for a job remotely is similar. It's not better or worse, it's just different from the in-person experience. Let's dive in and explore some of those differences and how you can use them to your advantage.
