Virtual job interview training – what you need to know

If you’re applying for a new role, virtual job interview training should be at the forefront of your mind.

But what does that actually involve?

It’s everything from your background to your audio.

From your lighting to your framing.

It’s covered in our new Virtual Job Interview Masterclass, exclusively on the Pink Elephant Academy.

Let us give you a taster of what you can expect from our e-learning course.

A new world

The jobs market of today is very different from how it looked even five years ago.

There’s more competition for places.

And right now, there are fewer roles to apply for.

But the openings are still there, ready to be snapped up by those who can take advantage.

Those who understand how to make the most of their virtual job interview.

So do you know your Zoom from your Teams?

Why you should avoid sitting with your back to a window?

And how to make eye contact with the panel on the other end of the call?

These are just some of the areas we cover in our e-learning course.

The course is hosted by former recruiter and current Managing Director of Pink Elephant Communications, Andrew McFarlan.

TV broadcaster and senior trainer Colin Stone is also on hand to give advice on your delivery, as well as the technical aspects.

There are nine video modules in the course.

The opening segments focus on how to properly research the role and the company in question.

Next, the middle portion investigates how you’re coming across both visually and audibly.

Finally, we’ll look at how to build your argument and get from the worst question to a perfect answer.

Here’s Colin with a video teaser for it all.

What’s the end goal?

You’ll be fully up to speed with our FAB and SOAR strategies.

Your next career move is one successful virtual job interview away.
