    Hi peeps,

    Me again, asking more questions!

    I have a second interview next week with the director of a company, who is based in another country and it will be via Skype. I have the option of using the companies equipment or connecting via home. I am leaning towards doing it at home as I will be more comfortable, but what equipment will I need? What will give the best quality? Will a cheapy webcam with mic built in suffice like this one. Or will I need a more expensive camera and a proper headset like so?

    Or will something like this be better rather than a headset? An actual phone on loudspeaker.

    Or shall I Just go into the office?!

    I just use a Microsoft Lifecam HD and a wired Plantronics headset.

    I don't find cheap webcams very good, and noise isolation of camera mics is not good.

    Similarly to dmarsh I have also found webcam mics to be poor and so I'd recommend getting a headset and webcam separately.
