Be prepared for a different environment
Like many other things, the interview process may be different to what you’re used to. Companies such as Google have stated all their interviews will be done via Skype/Zoom. Are you prepared for these types of interviews and how will your approach change? You can turn this into a positive, having notes or topics of conversation written out in front of you. You can also write down questions, do research immediately before the interview and of course, be comfortable (smart top half, casual bottom half!).
You may also feel more comfortable operating from your own home and feel less pressure as you’re not in a new place, sitting in front of someone being judged. Use this to your advantage as it may also be easier to express your personality and just be more relaxed in what is usually a stressful situation.
Some companies have changed their stance on working in an office with more flexible hours and working from home being a more favoured approach. This could be testing for some and more suited to others. If you’re one of those people who prefer to work at home, then you should enjoy this! However, if you’re the type of person that prefers to be working in an office and this helps you to concentrate and feel more productive, you may have to implement strategies to help combat working from home. Some of these ideas have been published online such as; not sitting on the sofa to work, wear a suit/what clothes you normally work in, have a structured schedule and find your own motivation day-to-day.
