Key Points to Rember        

  1. Name & Residence: The first thing you should tell in your self-introduction is your name and the place from which you are coming. You can talk about your home town and where you live now.
  2. Education: If you are a fresher you should elaborate on your educational details in descending order.
    If you are an experienced candidate, you may simply refer to your higher qualification.
  3. Experience: It is always better to highlight your experiences, job responsibilities, and skills in the self-introduction so that the interviewer can ask further questions about it. This helps you get the job.
    If you are a fresher, you can talk about your internships and project works.
  4. Hobbies and Interests: Most of the time you can end your self-intro by telling about your hobbies. Be genuine about your hobbies, because sometimes interviewers will ask questions related to them.

(You can also give details about your family details, and short and long-term goals in the self-interview, but these are not mandatory).

How to stand out in Video Interview

  1. Proper preparation will always be useful during interviews.
  2. You can practice your self-introduction by recording the selfie videos using your mobile. It lets you identify mistakes you make so that you can correct them.
  3. Know the important options of Zoom, Skype, etc. So you don’t face technical problems during the online interview.
  4. Present yourself in a professional way, wear formal dress, and make eye contact during the interview. 
  5. Set up a small space in your home so that no one can disturb you during the online interview.
