So I have an interview Monday using Skype. Has anyone ever used Skype? I never have and have no idea how to.

Any suggestions?

It's pretty straight-forward and intuitive. Just download the program for free from their website and follow instructions to set up your account. Use whatever email address the company you're interviewing for has so they can find you. Smile

Also, you can test it beforehand to make sure the sound and image are all correct. Do that before the interview so you can confirm it's all good. I also recommend making sure you pick a good place to do the interview inside your home that looks nice, etc. (I.e. if you do your interview in the kitchen, don't have a pile of dirty dishes in the sink visible, etc.) Even if the interviewer isn't intentionally judging your home, it'll still affect their perception of you. Maybe this is silly, but try to position your laptop camera in a way that is most flattering. If you have a low table relative to your chairs, the camera will be angled up, looking up your nose or something. Maybe prop your laptop up a little higher so they get a nice straight-on view of you. That's all I can think of for now!

I hope it all goes well!

It's fairly easy to use.  I have Skype on my phone and tablet.  I've used my phone for some work-related Skype sessions and the tablet for a Skype interview.  Let me know if you want to test your system by Skypeing to me.

Cool! You've got my email so you should be able to find me. I'll try to remember to turn my computer on when I get home just in case. Smile

Can you group Skype?  I wouldn't mind setting up a time to talk to a few of you at the same time if that were possible.

A group session would be cool. On my phone I have Google Duo which is supposed to be better than Skype. But I don't know which is better, but from what I have heard you can use Duo and call people who are on iPhone who have Facetime (not sure if that is right or not, just what I heard). I use Duo when I am out of town on business so I can talk/see to my wife and kids. 

But can you imagine a group video with this bunch???
