Regardless of whether you’re interviewing remotely or face-to-face, there’s always a lot to think about when judging whether an opportunity really is the right one for you, such as:
Of course, all of these things are incredibly important. But, when it comes down to it, you’ll often get a gut feeling. Your intuition will help you decide whether the opportunity is the right one for you. And it’s much easier for that instinct to kick in when you’re interviewing face-to-face.
So, how can you decide if an opportunity really is the right one for you when interviewing remotely? Here are a few of my thoughts:
2. Assess the organisation’s culture during your remote interview
3. Ask the interviewer the right questions
4. If you are being interviewed by the hiring manager, use the remote interview to understand whether they would be the right boss for you
5. Read the interviewer’s body language
6. Reflect on the experience you’ve had throughout the interview process
Just because your interview is taking place remotely, that doesn’t mean you can’t find all the information you need to decide whether or not this is the right opportunity for you. By following the six steps above, I hope you’ve realised that.
