Look at the camera and not yourself on the screen.

Thank you

Don’t use a swivel chair, or fight the urge to twist while interviewing.

Make sure your background is tidy and appropriate.

Make sure the lighting is good.

Log in early to test your speakers and microphone.

Speak clearly, annunciate, and slow down in case there’s a delay on either end.

Dress appropriately. I would suggest business casual. It makes you look professional and presentable.

Have sticky notes on a wall beside your camera so you can take a quick glance if you find it hard to remember points you want to make or questions you plan to ask.

That will definitely help!

Thank you!

I agree with what everyone already said. I would just add that make sure your distance to the camera is just right. The interviewer should be able to see your full face and head. Don't sit too far back where they can't see your face or too close where your head is partially cut off.

(Or really this is just me typing out loud. )

Currently 6 years at job A at 100K and 10K annual bonus but lil to no upward mobility. It's safe if not going anywhere.

Recruiter reached out regarding Job B at 130K with greater advancement potential but it starts out at 6 Months Contract to Hire per the agency contract. No bonus, benefits adequate by comparison. There is no guarantee to go full time.

Interview just for practice?

Hello Infoscians/Ex-Infoscians!

I will be joining Infosys this Thursday as a 7+ YOE Tech Lead. I am an avid trekker and every year I go on a trek at least once which requires me to take a 5-7 working days off. Its actually my passion.

Just wanted to know how difficult it is to get leaves approved and officially before how many days do i need to inform my manager?

Is there any SOP for applying leaves at Infy?

Thank you in advance!

Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, impress the heck out of the panel and push for that higher salary. You'll be surprised how open this conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open/upcoming roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.
