I’ve been getting fully dressed up: blazer with dress (if it’s sleeveless) or with jeans or just a dress. Call me crazy but I actually put jeans and heels on. It personally helps me feel more confident & that I’m having a real interview vs. just zooming in my parents house.

“To” is interesting there, are you gonna meet someone in, like, a place? If its just a webcam thing, it would be fun to get super dressed up, or wear a Halloween costume, or do a Hawaiian theme, and tell them you wanted to stand out. Or say this is what you wear on every zoom call. I dunno, have some fun.

It has surprised me how few items I own that look normal on webcam...like not slouchy, overly distracting, not too warm, or too revealing... I’ve had like 3 rounds of interviews and I’m like fuck I’m running out of my crew necked uniform!

Interviewed via zoom a couple weeks ago, I put on a simple, classic button down for one round (I love button downs) and simple T for others. Wear whatever feels natural and easy, but also considerate of the kind of org you're interviewing for (if it's more formal)

I always make an effort (with a nice top and basic hair and makeup) for my zoom interviews. 💁🏻‍♀️But the people who’ve interviewed me always look like they just rolled out of bed. No exaggeration. Regardless of their sex, age or position in the company. I always think, wow must be nice to have a job and not care.

Had a bit of a breakdown today because I am sick and tired of working harder than the other folks. I’m tired of having to save every cent to pay off loans and to save for my wedding and for kids when white friends/counterparts get to go on extravagant vacations and buy nice things. I understand that many of them come from family money, but why do they get to when I don’t? I’m tired. It’s not fair.
