    Are you applying for a job or being interviewed on a live stream?

    Keep some screenshots, docs, references ready of previous work.

    If possible, have 2 internet connections, a main broadband and a secondary mobile data may be.

    Try to be somewhere background noises are not too disturbing.
    We get used to background noises around our living place because of daily exposure, but other person is not used to them, and will definitely find it extremely disturbing.

    Try to use good quality mics, not one of those cheap phone inbuilt mics.
    These cheap ones will catch noises which you don't want other person to hear, like someone else flushing a toilet in next room, noises from AC/heating ducks etc.

    Make sure that mic is not rubbing against a cloth or something else. Creates a horrible disturbance.
    Try not to move the mic too much during the call.

    Record something with the mic before hand as a test, to make sure that voice is getting clearly recorded and disturbances are not present.
    Similar quality of voice will be heard by interviewer during live session.

    Not to mention, brush up your knowledge once. keep some notes handy which you can refer to etc.

    If its a job interview, prepare for weirdest of questions.
    If its for a technical coding type position, prepare on theory topics more than coding itself.

    90% times interviewer is a HR person who has very less knowledge about coding themselves. They will tend to focus more on theory of the coding language, rather than practical code itself...
    Questions will be very basic in this case, but will definitely be from a confusing topic.
    Think of the topics that confused you when you had started learning that language, brush up the theory once.
    In my case, JAVA Runnable class and JAVA Threads...

    If the interviewer is a coder, they too will ask very silly questions, school project level questions, rather than something more practical.
    I was asked to write a "sorting program" without using the inbuilt sort functions of the language, happened in multiple interviews.
    I remember writing that code when I was in class 8, and have started learning basic programming.
    Imagine being asked a question like that when applying for a senior coder position.. in a MNC...
    Slowly the questions will turn towards more practical topics, but will become theoritical then.
    Again, brush up theory once.

    Do not argue with the interviewer, specially if he/she is a coder. Big Mistake... LOL
    Unless they have seen a practical implementation of what you are saying, they will "not" believe you, and will stick to their theoritical views.
    Don't do this, unless you can show them a practical example immediately.


    Good luck!

    Beyond this, here really are the steps you ought to choose to shine:

    Make sure there.
    Prove that you 're never lost in translation.
    Publish your own tools.
    Catch onto metrics.
    Turn into an information magician.
    Make societal from the interview.
    Obtain a grasp on societal -networking advertising.

    I'm not sure that list is as coherent as you think it is

    It's well up to his usual standard of nonsense.

    That's the same garbled nonsense that @TraceyGlen posted above you, are you both copying crap from the same place or are you both the same person/bot?
