Remote interviews: How do I practice?

I want to practice giving my presentation on Google Hangouts (the company is interviewing people remotely). How should I do that?

You can have a practice meeting by yourself in Google Hangouts. Record yourself and then review your presentation. Make sure that you are not saying “um” or “uh.” At the same time, you shouldn’t sound like you are giving a memorized answer. Just focus on being as confident as possible.

You can also invite a friend or family member to join the practice presentation and let them give you feedback. Make sure they will be constructive and thoughtful so you are getting honest notes.
