This is a key to any successful interview, but it's especially important on Skype. Not only do you want to make sure you can maintain your poise despite any question you get, you want to be comfortable talking to the camera. Bear in mind how you'll appear from the interviewer's point of view. You'll look them in the eye by looking into the camera, not by watching their image on the monitor.
Need Answers to the Top 10 Interview Questions?
Practice talking to the camera and find the position where you're the most comfortable, so you can sit that way for a long period of time. Provide your friends with a set of questions you expect to be asked, and have them run through them with you. Ask them to mix them up, so you can field them in any order. Having them add in their own questions will prepare you to deal with unanticipated topics.
When the time comes for the interview itself, be sure that you won't be disturbed. If you have kids, you'll need someone to mind them. If you have pets, put them out of the room.
More to Discover
Turn off the clothes dryer so its alarm doesn't go off in mid-sentence, and turn off your landline and cell phone. Put on the same clothes you'd wear if you were going to interview in-person. If the company is formal, wear a jacket and tie for men or a suit jacket for women. If it's more laid back, wear a business casual shirt or blouse. Don't give into the temptation to dress up only above the waist. First, wearing the complete ensemble will help you stay in the interviewing mood. Second, if you have to stand up for some reason, you don't want your shorts or jeans to ruin the impression you've made.

You'll be tempted to keep your eyes on the monitor, but focus instead on the webcam. All of this is in addition to the preparation you'd do ahead of a telephone or in-person interview. For example, research the employer so that you understand its business, and write out a list of questions of your own so you can envision how and where the job fits into the organization. After the session, send the interviewer a thank you note.
Skype is simple to use, but it might take some time and practice to make your video look and sound clean. Prepare for your interview well ahead of time and you'll look good to the hiring manager, and save yourself a whole lot of stress.
