Virtual Job Interviews: Top Dos and Donts to get you to the Next Round

It’s a miracle – your resume has been picked from what feels like oblivion and you have a virtual interview set up with an HR person or even better, the hiring manager. Here are a few tips from the other side of the digital desk, for success.

No Personal Messages on the White Board
Yes, you look super-professional, having a white board behind you during a Zoom call. But the board should be blank, suggesting you’re keeping it free for the next genius brainstorm or algorithm to burble out of your brain and be captured with your Sharpie. This is good. What’s bad is when the white board is being used for cute notes from 7-year-old Bernadette that are clear and visible to the person you’re talking to; this means that bon mots like “HI, MOMMY!!!!!” should be erased before you log on. That’s because some might wonder if you’re in your bedroom watching Daisy Jones and the Six while the little dear is expressing her artistic self in your office. Is it really worth the chance?

Make Sure You’re Alone
I once interviewed a candidate on Zoom and was terribly distracted by her husband, who buzzed around the living room behind her looking for a place to perch while he ate lunch. Then he sat down close enough to her laptop that I could see the butter lettuce in his BLT and crunched away. Was this woman competent? Could she do the job I needed? I have no idea, since I was so preoccupied by her husband’s wandering, chewing, and swallowing that she could have been talking about her last ukulele lesson for all I knew. I would also bet you $5 that she realized I was looking behind her the whole time. It would have been even worse if he’d been eating spaghetti and meatballs.

…And that includes your Pets.
Listen, I’m a dog person and never lose an opportunity to talk about my puppy Pancake, who is 15 lbs of pure shih-tzu bliss. However, not too much bliss was in evidence last week when I was on a call with my boss. As we reviewed figures before a finance meeting, I began to hear the gentle heaves of Pancake throwing up her guts right behind my chair. I wanted to gag, I wanted to giggle, and I really wanted to open a window. Instead, I sat there and tried not to breathe too deeply until we were done. Only then did I turn to see Pancake wiping her beard on the rug and then wiggling out of the room, tail held high. I might have retained more from the call, though, if she had been barfing somewhere else – like my husband’s office. Next time.
