Set up a comfortable and quiet space if you can. We know that interviewing from your home means possible cameos from pets, roommates, or kids, so don’t be stressed if it happens!
Filter out the noise. If you’re interviewing on Google Meet, this noise cancellation feature comes in handy. We recommend turning it on before your interview to help you filter out barking, beeping, etc.
Use Chrome. Your interview will most likely be conducted using Google Meet, and it works most smoothly in Google’s browser, Chrome.
Test your equipment in advance. Give yourself plenty of time to try out your internet connection, laptop, camera, and headphones. Feel free to “join” your meeting any time prior to your interview (the Google Meet interview link is in your calendar invite), even just a few minutes early, to work out any kinks.
Try Do Not Disturb mode. Turn off notifications on your computer and your phone to help you stay focused.
Plug in. Make sure your laptop is plugged in, if you’re using one, so you don’t lose power.
Keep a pen and paper handy. You may want to take some notes during your interview.
Reach out. If you’ve got a problem or question, or if you need a specific accommodation, reach out to your Recruiting Coordinator or Recruiter. They’re here to help.
