A couple of tips when going through the interview process:
- Make sure you have a good internet connection for the actual interview. Most interviews are done via Skype and a dropped call will not look good.
- Many applications require a recorded video interview as the first phase of the application. Be prepared to put something together to send.
- Be sure to make the company you are applying to are aware of your time zone. Being in South Africa we are in a good time zone for many remote roles. We are also English speaking and this counts as an advantage.
