When it comes a job interview - virtual or in in-person - recruiters are in agreement that candidates should prepare themselves as much as possible prior to the interview. Candidates should not only have questions ready, but have great examples and possible action plans to demonstrate their qualifications to the hiring manager.
Two of the most important things to keep in mind when preparing for your video interview are privacy and space. Having a designated space to conduct your video interview is extremely important as it will impact the way your interview flows.
Check lighting. Most candidates do not think to make sure that the lighting is correct so the camera picks up on them well. Make sure you do not have direct light going into your camera, but rather face the light or have it be on a side of you. Also, check your background. Offices are great, but some candidates don't have an office and use a kitchen table or something. make sure you have a flat background vs a deep background where things could enter in and out of frame and be distracting. – Brennan, Sr. Recruiter
