Would you wear a tie in-person? If so, why would that be different because it’s on video? If not... why would it be different on video?

Honestly, I’ve had virtual interviews and all the interviees didn’t have any makeup or and looked like they just woke up from bed. But, regardless- i wore a shirt and blazer and also put on black leggings. I would advise doing the same. I only caution about wearing some form of acceptable pants because In a virtual interview once the interviewee asked me to stand up and thankfully i was wearing dress pants. The other guy was wearing boxers.

Upon receiving her (female) attorney’s final bill she was blown away to discover that her attorney charged her almost five times what the attorney estimated she would charge for the mediation. (The attorney was drinking alcohol during the Zoom mediation and settled for far less than she estimated she would get.) [continued below]

How much does one get paid post an MBA in Canada? What does the typical range look like? The schools we are looking at are - Schulich, UBC Sauder and Rotman. Since the tuition fee is pretty steep at these schools, I am wondering if the ROI would be decent.
