During this uncertain time, we know priorities have shifted and our new day-to-day routine has changed. From virtual interviews, happy hours, and events, our new “normal” still seems a bit daunting.
Work in the Triangle, a platform meant to help attract and retain the best talent in the Triangle region, has been reactivated to assist individuals who need help finding employment now. You can learn more about Work in the Triangle’s reactivation in our blog post.

Achieving Virtual Victory
Video interviews do not have to be intimidating. With the right practice and preparation, they can become a useful tool to enhance your recruitment and job search efforts. If you are participating in video interviews on either side of the market, here are some best practices to follow on camera:
- Make sure you are in a well-lit room with a clean background
- Speak to the camera, not to the screen
- Get ready for the interview as if you were meeting in-person, including professional attire, hair care, and personal hygiene
