Prepping for the morning

We’re using Microsoft Teams for my job interview in the morning. The CEO, Director of Marketing and Director of HR will all be on the video conference.

I don’t know what’s worse – in person job interviews or video conference job interviews in the middle of a pandemic when you really don’t know what to expect.

If I’m ever going to make it out of this house and this town, right now is the time.

Wish me luck.

      1. You are welcome. With WordPress suggested similar posts, it can be hit or miss. As soon as I read it, they threw a few more articles on the subject my way.

        Hope and pray your interview goes well. Have yet to do a virtual one, but asked for a phone interview decades ago as the potential new boss couldn’t reject me. Was trying to avoid getting a control boss who would be unhappy with me because he couldn’t say no. HR refused my request and a few years later my new boss offered me early retirement which I accepted.

  1. Pencil in those eyebrows πŸ˜‰ kidding of course, I never pencil mine in. Seriously though I am hoping for a smooth, glitch free experience for you. (((HUGS))) I have a 2 hour call with a shrink tomorrow, not nearly as exciting.

    1. One more this morning. Gosh, video interview #5. I’m going to be a well-seasoned vet with respect to video interviews when this is all done.

  3. Show your confidence and eagerness in measured amounts. Look into your future and tell yourself how great it went before it even starts. Keep your eyes on the prize- focusing on the task at hand while you are in familiar surroundings is the hardest thing to do while on Teams… for me anyway.

    1. Thank you so much for your well wishes. I am still waiting to hear back from the company, so I am hoping to hear good news. Your little pep talk was really motivating!

  5. As a recruiter there is one thing I hate in that is video interviews. I’ve always done the first interview over the good old-fashioned telephone so that I can have a normal conversation with the candidate. Video conversations are insanely awkward even when you know the person much less in an interview where you ultimately end up staring at yourself in the corner to see if you look silly, and it is somehow much less personal then simply using a phone. All I can say is fake it till you make it, and make sure the interview is a two-way street.

    1. Thank you for the tips! I actually had one phone interview and two video interviews with this company at the end of February. I was supposed to fly out to meet them for an in person interview but when shit hit the proverbial fan with Covid19 in Canada everything got postponed. This video interview was supposed to be my in person interview.. it was just two months later. It went well, I think! As a recruiter you definitely know more than I do! So thank you!


    1. My internet has been crap lately. But also, I think their internet might have not been doing so hot either as there was huge delays in the interview. It was definitely an interesting call…


  6. Hope the interview went well. I use Teams daily with the company I work for and it is amazing. By far the best intercommunication application I have ever used, and I have used a lot over the years.

    1. Really? I wasn’t a huge fan of it. There was a huge delay in video catching up to the person that was speaking. And, if someone laughed or coughed at all, the video would change to them even though someone was still talking. It was definitely a weird experience for me.
