I have a videocon interview this week. BigLaw-to-BigLaw. I’m interested in the job, but don’t feel strongly about it. Obviously, I would look presentable no matter what. But do I wear a suit and tie??? I just feel so silly about it. And I’m imaging the hiring partner in t-shirt/jeans on the other side.

Wear a suit and tie. Wear a light blue shirt. White will pop too much on camera and can wash out your face (more of an issue for white people like myself). Avoid pinstripes and busy tie patterns, which will draw attention to any laggy/pixelated picture.

As a former TV producer, yes to all of this!! Sit with your camera at eye level, address the camera directly and allow yourself to stand if that’s more comfortable. Take this seriously - pretend you’re a newscaster.

I had one of these last week. Wear a suit and tie and make sure you have a plain background. This is actually a time for you to standout from someone who may not take it as serious. Trust me the partners will be watching and take notice if you don't.

At my day job I’ve been conducting a lot of interviews lately. I echo the suggestion to look into the camera when you speak. If you don’t do that, I recommend turning off your self view (feature in Zoom) or whatever else you can do to reduce the likelihood that you’ll stare at yourself while you speak.

I started a new full-time job 3 months ago. My teammates only escalate small mistakes to my boss; I rarely get positive feedback on the things I go above and beyond on. I have a review coming up this week, and I don’t feel secure. A role that I applied to pre-covid became available. I got a verbal offer last week. Should I leave a full-time gig for a temp-perm one? I’ve killed myself to implement constructive feedback but I’m scared it wouldn’t be enough.

Background story - I interviewed with a company that I really want to work for for a role that I was a perfect fit for. I went through 5 rounds of interviews then was told that they ended up going with an internal referral however the entire team loved me so much and they're looking for other roles for me. I thanked them for their time and didn't really take their word but 2 weeks later I get contacted again for another opportunity on a different team. (Cont'd in comment)
