Hello! My first round interview will now be remote. Any advice on what I should extra focus on? E.g. should I try harder to build rapport, should I show my papers at the screen? Thank you!

Having run one of these recently:
1. Test your tech.

Make sure your internet connection is fast enough, your camera, mic, speakers work.

Had an interview where I spent first 10 mins helping candidate troubleshoot and then struggled to hear them the rest of the interview.

2. Be much more verbose.

I like to follow along with what candidates write and I can’t do that over video.

3. Clear out background distractions.

Find/establish a quiet place. There’s probably more leeway for this given so many are WFH/locked down.

Anyone have bad experiences with in-house recruiters willing to share? I've been interviewing for an in-house gig, and the company's recruiter has been leading me on and blowing their own deadlines. "We'll have a decision by Tuesday!" No update, then I'll follow up, then I'll get another deadline that is ignored. Repeat x3. Is this just (1) par for the course, (2) a bad recruiter, or (3) a red flag for the company in general?
