Question: I don’t think I want to see myself on video when I come for a practice interview – it’s going to make me feel worse – why do you suggest it?
Answer: Using the video is entirely optional – some people go for it and some just won’t entertain it! It is up to you. I suggest it for some circumstances because I think it will help. Don’t forget, we are not just looking for faults and areas for development – we also look for the things you do well and this can really boost your confidence. I often like to show people clips to convince them of how well they are doing – because sometimes they don’t believe me when I tell them – they want proof!
