Make an impression at online events!

With many employers running multiple virtual events it’s important that you know how to make a good, lasting impression in online webinars. Here are some of our top tips to help:

 

  • Don’t be late! You wouldn’t be late to an event in person, would you? Treat online events the same. You might miss out on important information in the first 10 minutes of the webinar, so try to log in a few minutes early.

 

  • Mute your microphone – You don’t want to disturb the speaker as they’re talking as your shuffling around or your dog is barking in the background. Wait until the Q&A to unmute and ask your questions. Try using the ‘hand up’ function on the platform to let the speaker know you have a question.

 

  • Switch your camera on – It’s a bit weird seeing your self on screen, we know! But if you can, switch on your camera and let the speaker know they have an audience. It can be hard presenting to a blank screen…

 

  • Ask meaningful questions – Make sure you’ve been listening and try to ask questions that are meaningful and helpful to you. Go a step further and do some research before the session to really understand the employer or speaker.

 

  • Follow up on LinkedIn – If you’re really interested in the topic, employer or speaker then follow up with them on LinkedIn. Write an update about the event you attended and what you got out of it, connect with the speaker and keep up to date with what they’re doing professionally.
