4 of 10: Connect to your interviewer in advance.
Connect to your interviewer in advance on the platform of choice so you’re not waiting till the last minute and realise you can’t find them right before your interview time.

Make sure you know how to log into the platform directly – don’t assume your computer will remember you when you last signed in.
