Hi I have an architectural skype interview next week for an intern position.

I am not sure what to expect... how to show them my portfolio and the rest of my work? i have never done a skype interview before... any ideas or comments?

do I send them a copy of my portfolio via email before hand? do I just show them on camera?

Please let me know your thoughts

thanks

Je le ferais nu, comme si je viens de sortir de la douche.

Deuxième choix serait en mangeant un bol de soupe.

Low cut blouse. If you're a guy, forget it, you're done.

No, don't show them your portfolio on camera.

This is not a good look...

You would use the screen share feature to display and discuss your work. I've had two "skype" interviews, one was a text only chat and the other was over webcam. I did wear a tie for the webcam interview.

It's perfectly acceptable to ask them these questions before your interview.  And, yes, dress nicely.

This is great to hear. Citizen is right, ask them. One really cool thing is you are interviewing with a firm that is smart enough to even use something like Skype. It saves you travel cost.

... and saves the firm expense in interviewing for an unpaid position.

I agree, do not show them stuff on the webcam. You might want to put some of your stuff online somewhere or use screen sharing on skype. but that you should try beforehand with a friend, just to get the feeling of it...
