Career Catalyst Webinar: Virtual Interviewing – How is it Different from In-person Interviewing
September 21, 2023; 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET
Location: This webinar can be taken from the comfort of your home or office – remotely from any tablet, laptop or computer.
Webinar Description: During and since the pandemic, companies have become increasingly open to offering remote positions. They have been forced to think of creative ways to connect in the employment process, and one of those methods is through virtual interviews. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good because it keeps us safe and socially distanced, but it’s bad because it’s more difficult to express ourselves, show our body language and build in-person rapport with the interviewer. It’s also worrisome because technical issues happen sometimes when we least expect them, and during an interview is the worst possible time. There are some secrets to a successful virtual interview though, and we will discuss how to present yourself in a virtual interview in this webinar.
