If you’ve interviewed via Zoom/WebEx/Teams etc. recently, did you use your personal computer or work computer? My personal laptop is old and the camera is nowhere near the quality of my work laptop. Is it crazy to use my work laptop? Side note - the interview is via Microsoft Teams, which we use in my office for internal communications. I’m comfortable with the using the platform, but have no idea how meeting info is stored.

I used my personal computer. Maybe you can just buy a webcam to go with your personal computer? I’m not sure using the work computer is ethically the right thing to do.

I used my personal and I’d highly recommend not using your work laptop. Without reading your acceptable use or cyber monitoring policies it’s hard to know what your office can see on your laptop but that doesn’t feel worth the risk.

We don’t have any relevant policies (small firm), but duly noted. Personal laptop it is!

Use your phone

I used my personal laptop and ordered a webcam with a built-in ring light. Much better quality, and I didn’t have to worry about lighting quite as much.

I used my personal computer. The quality wasn’t as good, but I was not willing to risk using my work computer. I think as long as they can see you and there’s nothing distracting about the video it’s fine. But if you’re worried basic webcams are pretty cheap.

Buy a $35 external camera.
