Do I have to dress up for a video interview?

Q: Do I have to dress up for a video interview?

A: Yes. Treat a video interview like an in-person interview. If you’re casual, your posture and demeanor may come across as casual about the opportunity as well. While you shouldn’t appear stilted or overly formal, the watchword is professionalism. Be professional in attire and approach, always, in interviews whether they be in-person, by audio/video call, or telephonic.

Unless the interviewer(s) tell you, in advance, that their organization is casual and you needn’t dress up for an interview, do. Then be warm, personable, and professional…and you won’t go wrong.
