How make your Skype Calls seem more Professional

Your rating: None
In order to be taken seriously and properly transport yourself and your aims through the webcam certain things must be taken in to consideration.
Pick a room thats attractive and well lit. Somewhere that co-incides with the meaning behind the call. Where suitable clothing as if you were meeting in person and angle your webcam to see a good shot from above your head to your mid-section.
Make sure you have a back up plan in case of Skype crashing. Mention to the person that you are calling that you will either call them or email them if anything happens.
Look attentive at all times. Never look at your own image on the screen just straight into the web-camera. As you probably learnt before your first job interview eye contact keeps attention and promotes self confidence.
