Virtual Interviewing Guide

We understand that interviewing can be nerve-racking at the best of times, let alone with the unique experience of a video interviewing at the moment. To help you feel more comfortable, we have put together some hints and tips to help you prepare and perform as best as you can.

1. Preparation

Familiarise yourself with the video interview platform. We recommend testing the technology at home ahead of your interview so you can see how it works and allow the right amount of time.


Consider your location, you’ll need a sufficient Wi-Fi connection to ensure a seamless experience.


Make sure your camera is turned on and capturing your face and shoulders. You may also want to consider your background and try and set up in a professional, quiet space.


Notes are absolutely welcome and we like to see that people have prepared, you may wish to have a copy of these ready for your interview.


Also think about some of the questions you may be asked in the interview and draft some answers that you can provide relating to your experience.


Hydration is key, so make sure you have a glass of water to hand.

2. Interview

It’s important to be engaged and inquisitive so utilize this time to build rapport, ask questions and get to know your interviewer.

We’d usually love to show you around our fantastic offices but as we’re working remotely this will not be possible. Please feel free to ask about our working environments, we have some fabulous facilities we’d be happy to talk you through.

We understand that as this is a virtual interview, you won't be able to see the teams at work. However, please use this opportunity to understand the wider teams function and responsibilities. The interviewer will be happy to discuss their team structure, and working practises with you.

Don’t forget to mention The Vodafone Spirit!

3. What happens next?

You’ve done all the hard work so now you can sit back and relax.

We will share your interview feedback as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have any questions or queries about the interview or working with Vodafone please get in touch with your recruiter.
