Top 10 Reasons Why You May Failed An Online Interview by TechCapon(m): 4:28am On Aug 28, 2019
TechCapon



Many multinational companies both home abroad looking to recruit new workers are now moving their interviews to the internet. Nowadays most companies conduct their aptitude tests online and also hold a video oral interview with the prospective staff online. Some people complain that after scaling through the first stage of the interview which is the exam, they bare make it past the second stage which is the online interview not to mention being invited for medicals. Of course, you cannot be invited for medicals if you don’t pass the interview stage so, in this post, Techcapon will take out time to explain why you failed that oral interview and how to prepare adequately for future interviews.



YOU FAILED THAT INTERVIEW BECAUSE YOU FORGOT TO:

1.. Check your internet connection and data leading to poor connectivity during the interview.

2. Test your audio and webcam quality before the interview. I recommend you use the Rode NT USB microphone for best sound quality.

3. Research about the company interviewing you. For example, Exxon Mobil is an American oil company while Total is a French oil company. Both are oil companies but their standards differ so if you give Total the American standard and vice versa, you have automatically failed that interview.

4. You totally forgot to look into the webcam instead of looking at the screen. If you watch Supersports, you’ll see the same mistake from football fans who call into the studio. If you do that in an interview, you have failed.

5. You forgot to ban your siblings, wife, kids etc from coming into the room while the interview is going on. In fact, you are advised to lock the door to prevent anyone from coming in.

6. Have a copy of your CV at hand during the interview.

7. Close all other applications running at the background of your laptop. Some of those applications will drain your data, battery and even interfere with video quality while the interview is going on.

8. Check the lighting in the room and position yourself against a plain background.

9. You forgot to dress professionally because you feel it’s in your house, so, therefore, no need to appear smart. That’s the first thing the recruiter will check.

10. Silence your cellphone, have a pen and paper at hand and also a glass of cold water to calm your nerves. There’s nothing wrong with drinking a glass of water in front of your recruiter. It helps boost confidence. Good luck with that next interview!

If your use of English is not good enough, you might not be considered for the role.

I had an ODVI with shell sometimes in 2016 or 2017, the whole thing was strange to me, then my mother walked in, I was trying to signal to her not to interfere, I lost my composure after that.
I also remember I just put on a round necked polo shirt.

I never made it past that stage.
