Here are 5 best practices for virtual interviewing!

  1. Test your internet connection. Check the speed to make sure your video comes across smoothly.

  2. Prepare your interview space. Choose a quiet, well-lit space with minimal distractions.

  3. Dress the part!

  4. Practice beforehand. Research the role and the hiring company.

  5. Be genuine and patient.

Vet tech in need of online work

I've been a vet tech for a few years now. I love the career but with things getting crazier by the day with this Coronavirus outbreak... I need to have a back up.

My FT hours have been cut DRASTICALLY as we're only taking emergency cases and we have to rotate those slim hours through 8 techs.

I've never done work online, but I am eager and willing to learn. Where do you think I should/could start?

BEWARE: 3 popular job scams

#Coronavirus has left millions of workers without jobs, many desperate for remote jobs that can provide a source of income without having to leave their homes.

Unfortunately, this also means that scammers are on the prowl for vulnerable people looking for work. There have always been job scams out there, but it’s going to grow as the weeks go on.

Here are a few of the most popular scams that should raise some red flags.

FAKE CHECKS You may see a job post offering “quick cash” typically in the telemarketing, sales or customer service field.

Red flag: Employer offers to send you a check to buy supplies to do the job

  • When you go to deposit the check, it’ll probably clear within a day or two
  • A few days after, the bank will discover the check was fake
  • Your bank account will be negative, and you are now responsible for any overdraft

Protect yourself: Never use money from a check to wire funds, send gift cards or money orders to strangers.

MYSTERY SHOPPERS Retailers DO sometimes use mystery shoppers to audit their stores for customer service, cleanliness, etc. But, chances are legitimate companies are not doing this right now.

Red flag: Employers ask you to evaluate a money transfer service (such as Western Union or MoneyGram) as your first assignment.

  • You receive a check and are asked to deposit it, take out the cash and wire it to a third party (spoiler alert: the third party is the scammer!)
  • The check will bounce, and you will be responsible for the negative balance

To check if a mystery shopping offer is legitimate, check here!

GOVERNMENT GRANTS/LOANS Federal and state governments are working on relief packages to help workers get through this tough time. There will be a lot of new programs being stood up over the next few weeks/months, so please be careful.

Red flag: Any call, text or email that offers a government grant or loan.

  • Do not give out any personal information over the phone
  • Do not click on any links in emails or provide any personal information

To confirm which programs are legitimate, check official government websites + news stories.


Please be sure to report any suspected scams on Jobcase by clicking the three dots in the upper right and selecting Report. That will help our team find them quicker!

Good luck with your job search!

Virtual Interview: Body Language Tips

Interviewing over video is becoming more and more common in this day in age. In fact, 60% of hiring managers use virtual technology in their interview process.

Your body language matters in person and on video! To show your interviewer you are ready and poised for the position, follow these 5 body language tips!

  1. Take up space! You should be the focal point of the video's frame.

  2. Sit-up straight.

  3. Smile. A friendly demeanor can be seen as approachable and make for a more fluid interview.

  4. Be arms-length away. This way you can use your hands to gesture and show enthusiasm without crowding the screen. When not gesturing, rest them on the table.

  5. Don't touch your face. This can come across as insecure or unprepared.

Dive deeper into each of these points at https://highfive.com/blog/5-body-language-tips-better-video-conferences.

Now I offer VIRTUAL makeup + skin consultations!

I am a hair stylist + licensed esthetician. I worked many years at Ulta Beauty and now work in a salon.

Because of Coronavirus, we are shut down. My niece showed me how to set up a mini video studio and I can now do online consultations for clients! We video chat and I offer make up and skincare consultations.

It's not ideal, but its a nice way to still make some money while staying connected with others!!
