Do not try to cheat - no notes for PEI, no calculators or excel for math. We’re getting good at catching that and you’ll get automatic turndown. If you wouldn’t have the tools in person, don’t bring them to zoom. Explain overall structure or approach before going in to details. For first question on our cases, than means saying: I’m going to look at four areas-a,b,c,d. Within A...... (give details). within B....

Just wondering for those candidates who cheated, did you tell them the very reason during feedback? Or did you not make it explicit and attribute onto other factors?

Speak clearer, smile, look into the camera often (takes some practice)
