  1. Through Skype
  2. Telephonic Interview
  3. Direct Interview in person

PREP ALL THE WAY

For Skype: For a skype interview dressing right portrays your professional attitude, so dress neat and presentable. Test the microphone, place the camera in such an angle that your face looks well framed and adjust the lightning as well. Make plenty of eye contact with the interviewer, as it indicates confidence. Also depicting a positive body language, like nodding at the right places and sitting straight makes a difference in your interview. But, most importantly read up all about the company, their services and their contribution in the particular field, so that when they ask you a question out of the blue you can answer with poise and self-assurance

Telephonic:  When on telephone your interviewer cannot see you, all they do is hear your voice, so make sure that you are not distracted. Listen to their every word carefully, keeping your voice as form as possible. Your involvement in the conversation leaves a nice impact with the interviewer.

 Direct Interview in Person: Once you get the final call, book your arrival two days prior to the interview as there is a chance of being exhausted due to the jet lag caused by the long flight. Take two to three copies of CV along with you just in case! For that matter, keep it ready online or on your laptop. In this way you will have your CV ready in case you lose it.

Some Additional points to keep in mind during the interview are:

  • Show your preparedness and willingness to do the Job
  • Highlight your flexibility in terms of job role
  • Prepare a list of questions for asking the interviewer
  • Don’t be really early or very late for the interview
  • Be ready for any kind of questions related to your profession

With all this ‘to do’ points, you are ready to make your own unique statement at your Australian interview.
