In business, Skype has not only significantly reduced the cost of doing business, but also has changed the way companies hire new employees.
Certainly, the Skype interview doesn't replace face-to-face interviews, but it allows people to get a much better feel for their potential colleagues early on in the process.
I've held a dozen Skype interviews in the last month alone.
If your employer decides to do voice instead of video, your profile image will be front and center for the duration of the interview. 3) Acedia: Don't mess up your prime time moment (For those of you who are not up on your deadly sins, acedia is a little known sin of neglecting to take care of something that one should do.) Treat your Skype interview like you are preparing for your television debut, where you are the director, producer and the star. One candidate I interviewed wore sweatpants and an XXL t-shirt. her time, but in an interview, I don't want to be imagining her getting out of bed, but rather getting into the office.
You are responsible for making sure that logistically, everything is right. It doesn't matter what the local time is -- you should always be dressed for 9 a.m. 4) Sloth: Read past the wiki Everyone says to "do your research on the company."

Judge Ian Lawrie QC passed an extended sentence on Forbes, meaning he will serve at least two-thirds of an eight-year sentence before he can be released and will spend another eight years on licence.
The judge described him as an "arch-manipulator" of both men and women and said he held a "malign and corrupting influence" over Gotham."It is clear there is little that can stop you when you wish to commit sex offences," he said."I do take the view that you are a dangerous man and you present a constant and persistent danger to women and children." Prosecutors described heavily-tattooed Gotham, from Plymouth, as more than a spectator or a passenger”, who played an active role in the abuse.And in what is thought to be a legal first, four FBI officers flew to the UK to give evidence in a British court in person.Forbes, of Torquay, earlier pleaded guilty to three charges of sexual assault, possession of indecent images and breaching a sexual harm prevention order.The court heard Ellis was arrested in San Francisco in April 2015, and immediately confessed that she was a paedophile while agreeing to cooperate with officers in return for a reduction in sentence.Ellis, a former magician's assistant and dominatrix, who was working as a cocktail waitress at a strip club when she was arrested, told the court that she watched Gotham abuse the girl alone and on other occasions with Forbes."After I got arrested I felt bad about what I did and I feel I should make sure that other kids don't get hurt," she said.Job seekers in the coming spring should avoid these seven deadly Skype interview sins if they want to succeed in 2012.
