Test your webcam and microphone to ensure that the video quality is good and the sound is clear with the appropriate app (i.e. Zoom) before the interview.

Additionally check that your battery will last the whole interview.

Try to connect directly to your router with an ethernet cable. This will be more dependable than WiFi and also check your Internet speed.
