Be you...the more comfortable you are on the call, the more BDE you bring to the table.

^^ Definitely agree, trying to “fit the mold” can be a slippery slope - e.g. you might find yourself not wearing green (the best color) because of a one-off comment from the MD

Air pods, over the ear look less professional for some reason.

Mine look at little funny on me but after 7 hours of straight calls I don't give a crap, they're comfortable and get me through the day

If it’s comfortable for you, then go for it. I use my noise canceling headphones when I wanna really focus during my calls. Doesn’t matter how you look...we in corona times

I have noise-cancelling headphones that would help me focus but I'm concerned about the first impression with the interviewer.

Do do it, because any hiring manager who would criticize someone for using perfectly fine headphones, is not someone you want to work for. Only issue would be if the mic was bad You could also go the total opposite way and get a podcast mic and GoPro to show them just how professional you are lol

If you’re that worried about it, you can get wireless Bluetooth earbuds for $20-40 on Amazon

Anything but wireless honestly. I've seen way too many audio mess ups with Bluetooth which is the last thing you want during an interview

That is an only airpods problem, happens to me as well (not in conferences with 300 people though) AirPods default back to connecting to your apple product every chance it gets. I have never seen a similar problem with other wireless headphones

No Go, Nerd

I have a pair of Bose 700's that have been used on calls every work day since COVID started and have worked flawlessly.

I would not personally

Also I actually resent being contacted constantly on my personal phone when I don’t have a work one.

If every study shows bad management slows productivity and cost companies good employees, why are all these a**hole clients and the MDs who turn a blind eye protected? My client's awful attitude creates an extremely unproductive environment. We spend more time protecting his ego or getting irrationally screamed at, than we do doing our jobs. I thought our MD might step in, but he just completely downplayed it and even blamed us. Why isn't there more attention on changing this outdated ideology?
