1. Right to Work
You MUST bring your right to work documentation to your interview in order to be verified.
Come with a share code to speed up the process.
2. Interview Invitation
All of our interviews are virtual. We’ve sent you an email with a joining link. Check to make sure you’ve received it. It will be sent by ‘Indeed Hiring Events’. (Check your junk folder, just in case). This email will contain your start time, when a virtual waiting room will open for you to join.
In order to have the best experience, make sure you’ve completed your profile before you join your interview. Fill in your preferences (Profile > Work Preferences) and experience (Profile > Skills & Experience) so our recruiters can find the best jobs for you.
The whole thing should take no more than 30 minutes, and we’ll look to help you get that all-important first shift booked during the process.
Here are some tips on how to succeed in a virtual interview
1. Test your technology beforehand
A virtual interview requires tools like a camera and microphone on your device, and a reliable internet connection. Before your interview, check all of your technology to ensure it works effectively and can be used for video communications.
2. Wear professional attire
In a virtual interview, you should dress the same as you would in a face-to-face interview, unless specified otherwise on the job advert. Sometimes we may ask you to come to your interview in the uniform you’d be expected to wear on the job.
3. Prepare in advance
As with any interview, you’ll get the best results if you take the time to prepare in advance. We want to hear about your previous skills and experience, and the kind of working environment you’re looking for. It’s helpful to have specific examples of when and how you’ve applied your skills successfully and just how many years’ experience you have. Ultimately, just relax and be yourself.
4. Limit distractions
The best place to have a virtual interview is in your home in a quiet location with few distractions. Choose a room that is clean and professional-looking. If you don’t have a dedicated office space, you can also use a bedroom, your kitchen table or even cleared-out wardrobe space – anything with a neutral background. Try to place your device on a table or desk instead of your lap or a couch. Never try to conduct a virtual interview whilst moving around or travelling.
5. Ask Questions
When interviewing it should be a two way conversation. While we want to find out all about you, it’s also important that you have the opportunity to ask us any questions. Don’t be afraid to ask if there’s anything you don’t understand about the role(s) or you need more information on something. Remember, we’re both there for the same objective – to help you get a job!
