Candidate Interview Prep

Virtual interview best practices 


  • Your interview will be conducted via Zoom (if you are unfamiliar with Zoom, check out this Tutorial Video)
  • Once you join the interview, please test your audio and ensure your camera is turned on 
  • We recommend choosing a neutral background in an environment with limited distractions if possible
  • It's best to avoid sitting with light shining behind you as this makes it difficult for the interviewer to see you 
  • Dress how you would for an onsite interview -- our environment is business casual with an emphasis on casual
  • Please have your phone nearby (should any connection issues occur, your interviewer will call you directly)
