The Skype interview...

Dress for success - Dress how you would for a face-to-face interview.

Clear any distractions - Position yourself in a quiet and de-cluttered room with good lighting so that you are visible.

Conduct a trial run - Test to make sure your audio and video are working properly beforehand.

Look at the camera - If you are looking at the screen and not the camera it will appear as though you aren’t looking at the employer.

Control body language - Over zealous gestures can appear distracting to the employer and may also distort the image to seem blurry as quick movements tend to lag during video calls.

Keep a professional profile - Avoid username and profile information that could give your interviewer the wrong impression as this will be the first detail they see before the interview.
