About This Event 

Hosted by General Assembly

With most interviews starting on the phone, and many doing early stage interviews via webconferencing, establishing your best self early is vital to the interview process. That being said, most people don't realize how they come across through most digital mediums.

This lesson will not only give an overview of pitfalls when interviewing online, but also helpful tips and tricks for presenting your best self through the phone or online.


By the end of the webinar you will:

  • make a great digital first impression!
  • know how to set your environment for not only your best self to shine, but so that it isn't visually distracting to others.
  • get your personality across through a webinar or phone setting in a way that emphasizes your strengths.
