Strategies for Remote Interviewing

Remote life is here to stay.

Prep your skills as we dive into remote work from the interviewing to the onboarding process with perspectives from both sides of the screen.

Hear what professionals in the creative industry are looking for in remote interviews and how to lead in a remote culture. A panelist conversation on advice for hiring & interviewing will strengthen your knowledge of what to expect during remote interviews and provide insight on recent challenges on how others in the industry pivot when that precious internet gets glitchy or when communicating via chat just isn’t cutting it.

Join us as we dive into topics such as (but not limited to): The Great Resignation, Remote Interviewing Etiquette/Technique, Seeking a Culture Fit, Remote Onboarding, and we’ll leave time for open questions.

The link to the Zoom event will be sent out to you via email a day before the event and again the afternoon of the event.
