As you prepare for your live video interview with an organization using Spark Hire, we've put together a list of recommendations and resources below.

Recommendations and what you’ll need:

  • Log in and get familiar with Spark Hire well before your interview
  • We suggest using a desktop or laptop computer equipped with webcam and microphone capabilities and the Google Chrome Web Browser
    • If you do the interview on a mobile device, use Chrome on Android and Safari on iOS.
  • Do everything you can to ensure you are on a strong internet connection. Being connected to an ethernet cable is not required, but is recommended over wireless internet.
    • Remember to close out of other apps or services that take up network bandwidth along with tools that use your webcam and/or mic like Zoom, Teams, or Facetime.
  • We recommend using headphones during your interview for best quality audio and to prevent audio feedback or echoing.
  • Be sure your mobile device is charged, if using and Android or iOS device.
