Will you be using Skype to interview a new candidate or have a guest speaker? Have you noticed on Skype calls the webcam image is bad! How can you improve the image?
- Do not rely on your monitor as the light source. Turn on the light source in the room and try diffusing it with paper (just tape a piece of copy paper to the light) or point the light source away from you.
- Try adjusting your monitor brightness and/or contrast down to the point at which you can barley see (just while you are using the webcam).
- Wear a white for good color and exposure.
- Be aware of what is behind you and therefore what the person on the other side will see….clean up your background.
