Find a quiet and professional-looking area where no one else is around to record your video interview. To avoid looking like a shadow, be sure to have light facing you and not shining from behind you. You might also want to consider having two lamps on either side of your face to brighten your appearance on camera. It’s also important that you position yourself in the center of the webcam where your head, neck, and shoulders can be seen.
Test your webcam and microphone. If you are using a computer to complete your one-way, make sure to verify the microphone you are using before recording. Additionally, you should always play back your first recorded answer to make certain that your audio and webcam are working properly.
