For time and cost reasons or for the case, that the applicant as well as the company is located in different cities, more and more companies arrange a Skype interview to get to know each other. As this opportunity is provided to only a few applicants, you can interpret this as a good sign. The preparation requires the same thoroughness as for a personal interview. A neutral background such as a white wall and a well illuminated face are substantial for a successful correspondence through Skype. It is recommended to look in a friendly way into the interviewer's eyes and to smile regularly. A pleasant appearance is vital in this context. And by making sure to have a self-confident posture and a clear pronunciation, you will be well prepared!
