It's kinda tough but try looking directly into the camera for eye contact, not their video stream

Dress completely, Not just the part they will see. You’ll feel as if you’re interviewing for something important, and not something you just threw together at the last moment.

Camera at eye level—up high. Lots of light! Make notes & have them also at eye level so if you need to look, you’re not putting your head down. Test camera & audio beforehand with a friend.

Go in and see how you look on screen beforehand. Use the touch up feature to make your skin look clearer, if Skype has one like zoom. Women may find they look better on screen with a *little* more makeup than usual. (I say this because I found it to be true for myself.) Can you change background on Skype? If so, consider what will be your background, an image or a bookcase, etc.? Windows in the background may create too much light. Try to look into the camera. Dress professionally. You will probably get used to it quickly.

So for this company, I gave 3 rounds of interviews...the last round was with manager...he asked my exp salary, I said 10lpa. On further negotiation, he agreed for giving something between 9.5-10 including bonus n ol. Now, HR mailed me a proposed salary of 7lpa🥴. Over call she said the manager who agreed for 9.5+ is not from hr department and giving this much hike is against company policy. Later she said to add 50k JB and 100k RB. What should I do now?

Very much considering this… thoughts?
