How to Ace a Skype Interview

TIMING

CHECK TIME ZONES AND DON'T BE LATE

All Shopify interviews are booked in Eastern Standard Time (EST). Please convert your local time to EST in order to be ready for our chat; We wouldn't want to miss one another!

CAN WE FIND YOU ON SKYPE?


 Please check the privacy settings and live ID for your Skype account to make sure we can find you easily. 

 TECHNICAL ASPECTS

AUDIO

It would be great to make sure your mic is working and there is no echo prior to our chat. A headset can be a great choice to avoid background noises or feedback

VIDEO

Make sure we can see that lovely face of yours without harsh glares or backlighting. If you are using a mobile device, please set it down on a stable surface as to not create distracting movement during our chat.

Try to look straight at the camera and not at your own screen. 

ENVIRONMENT

CHOOSING YOUR SPACE

Select a quiet space where you can focus without distractions. This means potentially informing friends or family members about your super exciting chat with Shopify!

PROGRAMS

Close anything that may distract you during our chat (ie. Facebook, emails, music etc.)

TEST TEST 123

Do a test call with a friend so you can workout any technical kinks. That way we can focus on learning more about you!
