The Good Jobs Report #4

Boise-area tech, marketing, sales, and product jobs from Scentsy, Healthwise, HP, Balsam Brands, and more.

The art of the remote interview

Okay… so The Good Jobs report is back in email form. After last week’s snafu I think we’re back to normal… fingers crossed. I’ve moved the newsletter over to Substack. It’s just fine.

Since we’re all getting the hang of working remote, I wanted to share a couple of remote interview pointers I’ve found helpful over the years:

  • Wear headphones: Video conference software has gotten better about handling audio feedback, but remove the hazard entirely by popping some cheap earpods in.

  • Give the video conference software a once-over before the interview: WebEx, Zoom, Skype, BlueJeans, KhakiTalk, ChinoPants, Hangouts—there are a hundreds of video conference apps floating around. Before the interview, take a minute to download the software, see if it plays nicely with your mic and camera.

  • Take time to… pause: Nervousness appears in many ways, but one of the most common is talking too fast and/or too much. Take a 3-5 second pause before and after every question. You’ll not only sound more thoughtful, the interviewer will have space to ask questions.

Onward (to the jobs),
