Classroom to Boardroom: Interviewing in the New Virtual World
Friday, March 12, 2021 | 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

“I’m constantly on Zoom and FaceTime - interviewing via video can’t be that different, right?”  You’re not alone if you’ve had this thought.  It’s hard to believe that something we spend so much time doing can be so different when used by the corporate world, yet it is.  The pivot from in-person networking and interviewing to 100% virtual seemed to happen overnight - accordingly, there is sparse training on this topic. Join Cristie Lucas, Director of Brand + Talent at Veris Consulting, Inc., for an employer’s perspective on the strategies available to you as you brave this “new virtual interview world.” 

You will explore:

  • Differences in how video technology is used in the classroom vs. in a job interview
  • Interview strategies that work:  understanding and managing the tools available to you during your interview
  • Subtle changes to your set up and preparation
  • Non-verbal cues that convey confidence, interest, and positive energy
  • How to make a lasting impression when you can’t meet with your interviewer in person
