OD Live with Courtney Gehle: How to Rock a Virtual Job Interview – May 12, 2020
You are invited to join OD Live with Courtney Gehle: How to Rock a Virtual Job Interview.
Due to COVID 19, working from home is almost inevitable; and yet, companies still have to make hiring decisions. Virtual interviews are now becoming common solutions. It is through virtual interviews that employers get to assess your intangible qualities like professionalism and body language.
Courtney Gehle will be speaking broadly about virtual job interviews. You will learn how to prepare yourself, how to impress employers/interviewers and how to stand out from the crowd including mistakes to avoid during an interview as well as expressing your enthusiasm for the job while physically disconnected.
The #ODLive series is part of our efforts to empower our users with the right knowledge and tips they need to grow and succeed in their businesses, projects, and applications for global opportunities.
