The current world’s circumstance has forced us to transition from in-person meetings and presentations to virtual formats, and short list interviewing is no exception. Many firms have struggled to make this transition smoothly or effectively. Although the goal remains the same for virtual short list interviews, a firm’s approach to a virtual/video interview should be different than a traditional one. This 60-minute, free webinar will provide a road map to help your firm transition from just surviving the short list interview to thriving!

Learning objectives:

1. Prepare

  • Tips and tricks to set the stage – lighting, camera, interview attire, etc.
  • Test the technology – developing “Plan B.”
  • Guidelines for team prep.


2. Present

  • Tactics to keep your focus.
  • Create smooth speaker/topic transitions.


3. Follow-up

  • Ideas for virtual leave-behinds.

* This webinar's focus will be short list interviews, however the best practices covered are applicable for any virtual presentation.
