Transcripts

1. Lesson 1: Preparing for interview: hi guys. So today we're going to be covering basic interview technique. Goal of this video is to really get you to the point where you will be confident all of the basic tips, techniques, tricks of the trays to get you through at first and second stage interview for your dream job and, you know, also get you where you want to be in your career. Lesson one. We're gonna cover lots of things that actually control the interview. So we're not gonna do anything in this first session, which takes place once you get there. This is all the things that you need to be doing beforehand. To make sure that you are prepared, you give yourself the best chance possible. Actually, most people who failed to get through an interview process it's not assert because of something that they have done when they're actually there in the day. It's usually a lack of preparation. So business, that's what should you do in preparation for an interview? Well, first and foremost, make sure that you're turning up on time to the right place and you know who you are meeting. This is one. That surprising number of people will slip up on on mainly only not knowing who you're meeting Parts are always confirm ahead of time. Who's gonna be in the interview? Have you been amazing? What? Their roles in the computer? There's nothing more awkward and sitting, you know, the panel of free people and not knowing what two or even three of them do within the company. So yet before you get there and make sure you get a written confirmation where your interview is, who you need to ask for when you get there and who you're going to be meeting. Next thing you need to do before any interview is, make sure that you're probably prepared. So basic company research, which applies to all jobs so things that you need to know basic background of the company. You know roughly how many employees it's carts, where it's based. If the remarkable offices where the other sites are, you might meeting on site, but it may be a regional office. It maybe head office. You know it's a bond. No, the basic data bailout of how luck he operates, where in the world there, you know that may have an international presence. No one is expecting you to necessarily know the ins and outs off a big blue chip multinational companies, you know, global operations. But certainly, you know your local offices. You should roll the familiar with what's the where, where different functions are gonna be based, etcetera. And if you can't find this the foul easily. Bring it along as a question to ask. There's nothing wrong with us from questions. The first agents view. It's a very basic one, which really helped you get an understanding off the organization. The good thing toe workout in preparation for any interview is figure out the kind of economic basis off your company who are their customers. How do they make their money? Because that will give you a really good understanding generally, of what they're going to be looking for. The reality is that almost all businesses our sales based to a large degree, there are very few businesses out there that rely only on inbound business, or you have, for example, public sector money for their existence. Most businesses rely on acquiring money from private individuals or companies. If you get a good understanding of what they do, get that money, how they saw said, Even if you're not going into a sales role, remarked Roll or anything along those lines really important to understand, you know what a company's raison de tre is? Why use it there? Who is it selling Teoh? What need is it fulfilling in the market? The next thing, once you've done your research, is make sure you're turning up with the right things with you, so always take an open pen. I know it's been argument between whether you should take notes, Elektronik, Lee or on paper these days. It's also some argument for recording infused. Not really a fan of that from candidates side it comes across the little bits. Unusual, I think, from companies points of view, I would say no parent paper that is usually your best Avenue computer, in his view, is very distracting. It's not a great look to be typing on a laptop while you are talking to someone, but you know, a no pet go no partner, good pen. Where you can just rolled out some notes is yet still the best way, in my opinion, to to keep track of your of your interview, make sure you're nosing down and irrelevant things that you have to revisit second stage into you, potentially any things that may be highlighting and feet back to you so you can keep track of about now. The other thing is making sure that you are dressed the part print interview. So this is a little bit more set in stone for the men and the women out there. Guys, I would say typically, East Congo wrong with suits. Still, it's still the gold standards. There are industries where more casual dress code may be appropriate. It should be quite apparent to you if you are in one of those injuries already. Where that's going on vacation contends to be creative in the trees. If you were in Web design, marketing anything, the arts. Yeah, the dress code is a bit more, Luke said. And I would say Go car smart, casual for something like that of most people in, you know, on office based job, I would say, Yeah, a nice two piece suit, proper shoes, which you have, you know nature are clean and shines, and ties are pretty optional these days, but I think you can't go wrong with wearing one Still, I would rather you wearing a tie and have the option to take it off than to have not turned up on every other person you meet in the company's wherein. A woman, It turns out it's part of that dress code and you end up looking stupid. So that's kind of my advice for guys. For the women, it's a really tricky one. I think most women are pretty good generally at dressing for interviews. Proper shoes. You know, you could go with the kind of transit option you could go with. Kind of what I would call Morse off general formal where basically, if you would wear it to the office, you could wear it to interview. It's not rocket science. Or say it. My friends will be tense. Obey, you know, pretty good. That's kind of self regulating. War ISn't ISn't APPROPRIATE INTERVIEW where Probably don't leave a Big Betty Northern bloke from England telling them what's aware. I think you guys can pretty much figure out for yourselves. But yet for the guys, I would say go with a nice two piece suits because address that you go for a funeral, all black. Everything is a little bit weird and cringe. Eu no go with something a little bit lighter. Not, but generally speaking, don't go far wrong with just what you would wear to the office day today. Normally, that last point to cover is, what time should you turn up for your interview? That a couple of schools of thought on this from Turn off really, really early Show that you're keen to turn up, You know, just before the interview, too, You know, show that you got good type management, and actually you would start to respect the person's time that you don't want to make things awkward for that by being there really, really earlier. Messing with their schedule, I would say generally go for about 10 to 15 minutes before the start of your interview. It would be there if you there are five mins for that. That's fine. Anything less than five minutes before, I think people start to kind of look at the watch and think of what I hope this person. It's been turn up on time, nothing worse than being late, if in doubt to be earlier rather than later. At the end of the day, There's nothing to stop you turning up half an hour beforehand, going to a coffee shop and going over your note, I would even recommend it. I think it's a very good Threatt. Make sure you are in the local area is off half an hour to an hour before your interview just to make sure that there are going to pay any kind of glaring issues. You know, you don't want to hit traffic, and suddenly you're running very, very late. Even though you got into the area reasonably early. You know, you want to get yourself parked up, assuming you drive, you go get yourself, You know, into the area. If you're walking or taxiing in on, actually can be a nightmare in stick against of major cities. At busy times, you could be waiting a long time, so please don't assume that you could stop it Exactly. If you're getting your train in and kind of finishing the journey that way, always make sure you're there with plenty of time to spare. And so, yeah, you should be Yet you should be ready to go, and then we can move on to your lesson to with what? Today. Well, what, you're actually physically there? In the interview 2. Lesson 2a: Types of interview questions: So in our first lesson, we covered all things you need to be doing before your job interview in order to give yourself the best chance of success and ultimately securing that dream job. What we'll discover in lesson to is all the things to Dio when you there. So how's answer some basic questions? What kind of questions you should be preparing and bring to the table have to conduct yourself some basic kind of interview. Extra carrots Do's and dont's Andrea. All the basics that you need when you there in the day, this one will likely be slightly longer than less and one on and then we can move into 1/3 session on follow up on managing an interview process as a candidate. So first things first interview questions. What types of questions are you likely to be asked in an interview and so got open on closed question. First of all, good interviewers will ask you lots of open questions. These are questions, which invites a long form answer. So, for example, tell me about your experience with at section such where that's frequently used programming as an example. Here, tell me about your example your experience with C Sharp developments. It invites you Teoh. Present examples showcase your knowledge, etcetera. Example of a close question of safe topic would be. Can you program in C sharp? It tends to invite a yes, no answer. It doesn't give you a huge amount of room to embellish, although you always should. Anyway, even if you're being asked to close question, it may be that the interviewer either. Isn't it experienced into being particularly or is trying to get you to cut to the chase a bit more? In which case, I would say wants to minutes of elaboration on your answer. Andi, just more generally speaking, do know over speak in an interview. There's no need for you to speak for more than 5 to 10 minutes, absolutely most on any one question. So I would break down interview questions into probably three standard topics, the 1st 1 being personal questions, the 2nd 1 being demonstrate your knowledge questions and the third being demonstrate your experience questions. The first group at personal questions the's at tend to be quite broad. They tend to be openers, or sometimes closes for an interview when they want to get to know a little bit more about you, how you're gonna culturally fit into that team. And these will be things along the lines of the absolute school. Tell us about yourself. Now. How do you answer that? It's It's the broadest question you could be asked in an interview scenario on I would say that five minutes focusing on your professional experience is usually the best way to go with it. If they want more detail about you personally, you know, hobbies, your interests that century, they will no doubt ask for its I would make the assumption that this is a professional question, unless you are gonna clarified edged in the direction otherwise. Now demonstrate your knowledge. Questions tend to be less about what you've done and more about what you've know what you know. So they will ask you, Teoh. Explain what you understand by a certain topic. What you think about the marketplace that you're in at, particularly in lights off sales roles or kind of technical customer facing roles. These tend to be pretty heavily featured. They will want to know that you understand the technology that you're gonna be working with or that you understand the marketplace. You understand who your key customers would bay, how business is done in that marketplace. Voids can live better. Getting social norms are what professional standards are. Particularly. You have qualifications. You may be probe slightly on these and see if you know kind of some of the basic stuff that people in that marketplace should know about for their day to day experience. Those questioning is probably the predominance form of questioning is used in interviews today. It's also commonly known as competency based. Interviewing. Andi basically uses a very simple model to establish whether you are likely to be able to do the job or not. So typical competency question will go. Something along the lines of this tells about the time that you have dealt with a difficult customer. For example, if you do particular sales role or a customer service role now, the expectation here is that you will identify a time when you had to do thing that's being asked about. You will outline a brief summary off the situation. So, for example, let's I work in customer service. Mrs. Jones called us because she wasn't happy with the tariff she was on for her television package, for example, and you identify the problems that Mrs Jones unhappy. And she rang me to complain about that difficult customer situation, which you had to resolve as a customer service representative. What then going to is You will tell them how you took action points, how you resolve the situation and, most importantly, walk out of the situation was as well. So I spent 10 minutes speaking to Mrs Jones about what she didn't didn't enjoy about her package, and we came to the conclusion that there were things she wasn't using within the package on things which we offer, which she would have got more benefit from. In the end, we got rid of sky sports for her and gave her sky movies instead. While keeping the price of same Andi, she was much happier with that outcome. We then retained Mrs Jones as a customer for a further 18 months while I was still with the company. That's a very good example off identifying situation which matches the scenario. What the problem waas what you did to fix the problem, what the outcome waas and what the benefits the company waas off that as well as a very important paths to bring out is It's fine to have certain examples which your about your personal learning. But people really like outcomes, which are company centric for a lot of these competency type questions, something else you may have heard off when we're talking about conference questions is the style technique. Now the style technique is an excellent way of summarizing what I've just told you There abouts at the best way to approach a competency question and star stands for situation, task Action and results. The situation described the background of the context. Tusk described. The task or the challenge you were faced with. The action is what you did to resolve that situation and the results, how it ended, what you accomplished, what you've learned from that situation. It's a very straightforward way of remembering what you should be doing. In that scenario, you can go off that's core model slightly for some questions, particularly in quite technical fields. There may be Mawr toe out to that, absolutely that all the team members involved how you collaborated, etcetera. But generally speaking stars. There is a pretty good gold standard to use And when you are preparing answers to questions now, this brings onto another good point, which is prepare for questions. You are likely to be asked. Now, if you're going through a recruiter for a job, it's just very easy, because you can ask them more questions. Why likely to be asked in this interview? And nine times out of 10 they would have sent all the people to this organization before they will know exactly what kind of questions you're going to be asked. Liking fuckwit wealth This If you're in a low, it's still reasonably straightforward. You know, you know what you do day today in your job, So if you're an accountant, you are good. We asked a competence based question about managing the company's accounts. If you are selling, you are almost certainly going to be asked about difficult customers accessing new markets , something to do with your data and dependency, what kind of level of sales you are working out, whether you are something kind of very basic about kind of managing a difficult customer or establishing report or something more complicated, for example, to be on market access. Now I'm gonna leave it here for Lesson two part a part B will cover the kinds of things that you should be asking in an interview. How do you to extend to take control of drive and interview as a candidate's on what to do at the end? Evidence? Few. So I will see you in part 2.5. 3. Lesson 2b: What to ask, how to close an interview: Hi guys. This is letting to be off the how to interview successfully video Siri's Now What we're looking at here is the types of questions that you should be asking an interview on how to properly close and conduct yourself in an interview in orders to leave the situation on, get as much of an outcome that you was once as possible. So what types of questions should you ask? And, you know, you need to be very careful with what you ask someone interview, because what you don't want to do is ask them questions that are going to give them and negative impression of you is candidates. So I would stare completely clear of anything involving how how sick policy works, what the disciplinary procedures are at the company. Anything that would suggest that you ask when it was likely Teoh be ill lots or, you know, behave poorly will not conduct yourself properly in the role I would stay clear off on, I think is well at two personal questions about kind of what the managers like on a personal level, is once and maybe stay clear off until final interview all potentially, even once you started the job really kind of keep it professional with what you ask, Um, I think it's important to ask detailed questions. You know, general questions. What's the culture like here? Etcetera are fine, but they're not gonna They're not gonna do anything to improve your chances. What you really want to be doing is asking questions that's going to give a positive impression of you. So things like what is your progression opportunity for high performers? Do you run the incentives for top achievers? Anything is gonna basically give the impression that you are gonna be one of those high achieving people in the company. Is ah really useful thing to say to get a position it in the interviews? Minor. Actually, you're thinking of these things and you're you're serious about the role, and you think you're gonna be one of those top performers I think to ask about is company developments over time. So ask your questions about the company's background, where they're going to come from what the last few years have been like for them, but also where they're going over the next few years. It's a very, very naive position. A lot of very junior people have in a lot of industries that jobs are going to stay pretty much the same coincides very red. Let's use being incredibly low level of menial and task based. Its very likely the your job will look ah lot like it does today in five years time. If you're still with the company and orgy that ranging and companies expands, usually sometimes they get smaller. Sometimes that may even be pub plan is to downsize everything part that you know, this going into a role. So I would say, always ask, you know, what are the plans for the company over the next 18 to 24 months worth to complete going? Is there going to be headcount expansion? Is there gonna be a You know, new teams opening will be new projects that I could get involved with. What I work for you. You may find that they come back and say, there's this project is gonna be launching in 12 years. Service new products into a new market. Let's say, for example, the company manufactures bets the sake of arguments, and they sell them primarily into hotels. Currently, the go, actually, we're gonna invents a high end product. And so that's the care home markets. You might be able to turn around and go, Well, this is not my CV because it wasn't, you know, I didn't think it would be relevant. It wasn't Taylor, but I have actually worked in a health care sales markets. Five years ago, we had this product of this company which went into the cattle market. So maybe that's something I could assist you with. It could make all the difference. If you've got skills of future proof, you as an employee can really make a very, very big positive impact on your application and your chances of getting the job. If you can bring something a little bit unique that relates to a project that the other candidates may not even know exists. Final question. You should always ask in an interview, and I'm gonna teach you. That's pretty much word for word, and it's one that everyone should be using. And if you're not doing quite frankly, all you're doing is jeopardizing your own chances because people complain an awful lot. They don't get feedback from interviews, and the main reason is that they don't ask for it. What is use this question? Pretty much word for word if you can. And that is based on what you've heard today. Is there anything that you think would stop you taking me through to the next stage of this process that that question puts the ball very much in their got? How do you think I've performed today? Do you have any concerns? And it kind of puts an obligation on them. Really? If there are any concerns to bring them up to you, so that moves that they're thinking. Well, we're not quite sure about this. We're not really sure if we want to bring this person through, you throw that question out live. It's kind of all them to that point. So Well, yes, actually, we have this concern to give you a chance to battle it. You only get one shot at this, so you have to have your questions. You know pretty well lines up your answers pretty well lined up and everything kind of ready to go. If they do come back with a concern and you'll learn very quickly if you go to multiple interviews. What the concerns are with you. You know, it might be a lack of experience, like a number of years in the industry, it might be the opposite. It might be. They think you are overqualified for a role if you know what that objections likely to bay throwing that question out, that I could be a really good way of being able to challenge it without you having to highlight it yourself If I go in and go well, I've been in this industry for two years, brought you put yourself on the back foot, little, but that you know you are drawing attention to your own experience where it may not be an issue. Where is if you throw that line in there that I just talked you? Then it gives them the opportunity to say we're a little bit concerned that you might not have the right level of experience, this role, that you don't have the right number of years in this industry. You might not know the market well enough, and you can then come back, come back that challenge it and hopefully win them over. That's actually the thing they were concerned about. There is no need to pay interview by thanking the interview for their time. Thank each person by name if possible, you know. Thank you, David, for taking the time to see me. Today has been great meeting from meeting you. When should I expect to hear back from you? It was when should I expect to hear back from you? Throw it at the end is very useful because it gives you a bit of time scale. You know, uh, you'll hear from us when you hear from those. It has been rude to give us an answer. They will tend to go. You should know by the end of next week or two weeks time or whatever it might be. Hopefully, by this point, their Lord, you start discussing next stages with you, which is an excellent buying signal that they are actually going to caressed with your application. But if you haven't got those signals, don't worry. Throw this in at the ends, see if you can pin them down a little bit more concretely on what the next steps going to bay and when that's going to be happening. That concludes part to be removed Part three, which is what to do after the interview. Health Follow appropriately. Andi, How to you hopefully progress yourself through the process, so I will see you all then. 4. Lesson 3: How to close an interview: Hello and welcome Teoh Video. Four Part three off house winds of you, your guy to interviewing for your dream job. Now in part what we convert. How to prepare for an interview in Part two. We covers at the types of questions that you will be asked on the types of questions that you should be asking in order to successfully interview and progress through an interview process to secure your dream job. Now, in this final power, which should be little shows than the others, we're going to cover how you follow up after an interview. So I would say the day after interview what you should ideally dio is email the person that interviewed you directly. If you have their contact details, hopefully you do and say, I just want to thank you again for its view. Meat. Yes. So taking the time to see way I reiterate my interest in the position. Look forward to hearing from me shortly. That's all you need. You don't need to press on what we thought it was. Your feedback inappropriate to do that most of the time, Certainly. So soon after the interview, just a polite notes. Just reiterate your interest. The chances are the other countries won't do this. Most people don't do it. Um, it's very simple. It takes 30 seconds to send a quick note. So we're just thanking them for their time, and it could make all the difference. And now the other thing to do is when you're waiting feedback and this depends larger whatever you've gone through. So if you've gone through a recruiter constantly approved the straight way after the interview and asked them, Give them your feedback, how it Wen's on you should you think you had recruited may be able to deal with those for the time and then saith, um, you know, how long do we typically wait Fi Breakfast company. You're all the candidates errands for him, for his position. How long do they typically wait for feedback should be able to give you a pretty concrete idea on this. Actually, the reality is most companies are pretty similar in terms of things. Back time from candidates, candidates, companies take two weeks to get back people that's always takes you east back to people, people who and her Look with this, you come back pretty much immediately that sense of the case across the board and will be the same for all of the candidates they interview. That last point I'll make on this is Do not pass to the company trying to avoid Pastorini recruiter, if possible. But definitely do not pester a new organization that has interviewed you. If you haven't heard back from the medical full of weeks time, by all means dropped them. An email you know, asked, Did you have any feedback? Were there any concerns? You know, which, waiting on the next stage? Or should I take it? That's have been successful this time, but certainly within the first couple of weeks. Don't do anything more than your follow up email. The last thing you want to do is look bushy away. That you were coming across is entitled to be a real plus off managers. And let me think this person actually might be quite difficult to manage in our organization if they're waiting for two weeks for something internally that generally takes that long. Is this what they're gonna be like working for me? And they're gonna be kind constantly hassling may, so I would be very wary off too much contact after its equally don't have no concept here. Definitely. Do you follow up? Flight knows day after all, two days after, but then kind of so car respectful radio silence for wants two weeks and the after two weeks you're hitting the runs a little bit unreasonable to waiting that long for feedback. So at that point yet, you know, if you if you just enclosure on this, then by all means follow up. But that's roughly the time, Scales. I would be looking at the left. So that concludes our very brief guides on how to interview. And there will be more lessons coming in the next few weeks on some more detail aspect of this, potentially a short extension to this to cover some more complex in view techniques like psychometric testing. And but for now, I hope you found this useful. I hope that help you getting the job of your dreams, which is what we're ultimately here today will help you interview as well as you possibly can. And, um yeah, my name's James Loney. I am available on links. And if anyone has any questions following on from this course Andi, I hope Teoh speaks well of you again very shortly. 5. Lesson 4: Job offers: So next we come Thio more enjoyable parts off the interview process, which hopefully, if you do everything right, you follow the advice. In previous videos, you'll receive a job offer now the job off a process, something which a lot of people are. Someone familiar with kids. Yeah, ideally in your career. It won't happen that many times. Hopefully, you'll get to stay in jobs for a substantial period. You may only companies four or five times in your life. So how does that protest actually look in the modern world? Now there's a big misconception. That's a formal offer. Hasta come as a postal printed letter through your doors, right roughing you this job, Mr Mom. Money, etcetera, etcetera. Absolutely awful as it is perfectly fine. Other email these days, I slightly wearing with verbal offers You really want to get something in writing so you could turn on Say, Look, this is you know, this is what I've been offered. This is what's been agreed. So there were no issues. If your contract differs from that when you start now, once you've received your offer, the next step is to go on hand in your notice with your existing business. Before you do this, you should talk about potential start dates with your new employer if they don't want you for two months time on your own. A warm with notice periods your perfectly at liberty to give more than your statutory or contracting. Noticed your current employer. But I would generally steer clear. Chances are, in most jobs beyond sort of very low level stuff. It's quite unlikely that people will want Teoh keep you around for longer than they need to . So just be aware that they actually they may say, Just just get out now we don't want you will pay you for You know spirits are obliged to do that, but they may not want you hanging around any longer. Another thing to know about notice periods is that it's perfectly fine to ask for a short notice period after new currency. Player may be perfectly happy for you to do so. You know, just cause you've got three months left on your contract, you know, a strong is this is fine with your new employee. You can go to your existing one, so I've got three months. But if I do, you know, really good hand over. We sought so everything would start out like after one month or six weeks, it's going to let you get started thinking, if you moving so over the highest salary, you really want to get that period down too short a time as possible. Now what do you do if you got the offer on the office is not what you're looking for, particularly salary wise. Now, this is one of those times were having a recruiter involved in the process can be very useful because you've got a middle man who's got a vested interest in getting you the best salary possible for this and getting you happy with the officer. You're going to join and not leave. Obviously, they will attempt to get more commission from that as well. If you don't have the fortune to have the recruiter in the process, this can be a little bit more difficult. I would steer clear off kind of repeatedly moving goalposts if you're gonna counter off. You really only wanted to be happening world. So let's see. Someone says to you, right? We won't offer you £40,000 if you want 50 but the figure you'll actually take is, let's say, 48. What you don't want to be doing is that you go back and say 50. They say 45 then you keep haggling back and forth. It just it makes the process difficult. I would can swallow your pride, usually in that situation, and just go for the actual amount. But you'll be happy with, you know, at the end of the day, if you if you'd initially being offered the 45 you would have taken it. Just go back from its I. Look, I want 45. That is my absolute minimum can take you or leave it. Really. That tends to be a more effective on honest negotiating stunts in this or back and forth between employer and potential employees to try and find some sort of figure in the middle that neither party is really happy with. Now, once you've got your offer accepted, the main thing you need to do at this point is work out what you're gonna do any first day . Always make sure you have a conversation with the manager beforehand, ideally, again a week or so for just double check that arrangements are the same. Figure out the really important things. What day? EU starting. Where you going on that day? A pretty boat. What? What time you turning up? A lot of people go up Spent the assumption that I'm gonna turn up at nine o'clock or half bus day. Actually, they may. Well, what you in later on? The first day, cause chances are your Monday is not gonna want to do yours off. Orientation. Very first thing on a Monday morning that probably want to sort their existing team out. So it may be the You start terminal half 10 on that day s o, they get the existing guy salted, and then you come in later and have some kind of one on one time with your manager in order to get a lust assaulted. 6. COVID update: I have F31. Hope you're all been keeping safe and well, over the last six months or so. What I wanted to do today was just update this class with a few tips in light of the new kind of mid covert world that we're all living in. Obviously, this course was originally created with the intention that you would be using it for face-to-face interviewing. Now, obviously, that's not possible. A lot of places and the moment of supposedly I'm in the UK, there's a mixture happening here, some stuff, it's back to face to face. And there are other companies which are still doing everything very much remotely using kind of video calling, et cetera. And so what's different if you're interviewing by video call? Well, first things first at body language is a little bit more complicated to get across by video CCMC prime example, unless I've got my hands like this isn't minutes. Now, you actually SF neither side of this camera at can't see that if you are a person that does the talking with your hands, thinking quite a lot and you use this to articulate your points. Actually keeping hands up in front of the cameras so people can actually see that if that's how you communicate and that helps you get your point across and see more of this. And it is grates. At. The other thing is make sure that your video and sound quality or as good as they can be. I'm not saying everyone needs to go out and buy an all singing, all dancing camera or microphone. But work out if your sound qualities better through headphones or through your computer speakers, for example, gets some of the test this with you. Make sure that you're giving yourself the best opportunity to present yourself as well as possible. And now another thing to mention is, what's a way doing a video call? Now, obviously today with you guys, I am just here in my casual clause, I sit around the house saying, I think a lot of us have been for the last few months unless you are, you know, regularly on video for work. And you probably haven't worn office clothing for awhile. And I would say dressed generally in line with how you would go to an interview. Obviously, the advantage of the video calls you can receive from Romanian records. So, you know, nice shirt time blazer can feature houses up by all means. Just make sure you don't accidentally stand up cheering and sort of reveal your very stylish jogging buttons to the worlds. And I think the other thing is to remember still do all of the main things to kind of closing at the end of the interview, you know, making sure that you ask for immediate feedback. Is there anything else I could have done? All of those good things that we've already talked about a still very relevance on a video calls. Just make sure the heap doing them, the format doesn't fundamentally changed that much. And I think my one other piece of advice for kinda doing video interviewing instead of face-to-face EDO foreign key advantage on pieces of software like zoom, Skype, et cetera. And in the oldest little faces on the screen, particularly if you're being interviewed by a panel of people, they've got names underneath that. So if you also many struggles to remember names of people you've just met, not an issue for you anymore. You can remember those nice and easily just by using what's on the screen. And CH, Just a very quick few minutes update for you guys to bring us up to speed with the new way of working will be back with some more full courses soon and stay safe and speak to you also.
