A Zoom interview is not the same as an in-person interview. Talking with someone virtually is simply not the same as connecting in-person, and if you don’t know how to compensate for the difference the cost could be a job offer.

To help shed some light on communicating effectively on video calls and interviews, one of America’s top communication theorists and coaches Dr. Nick Morgan led a session of ExecuNet Master Class. Dr. Morgan shared research from neuroscience to help us understand why we lose so much meaning in virtual communications, and new guidelines for getting better at it.

In this brief excerpt from the master class Dr. Morgan provides a tip on improving your connection with the person on the other monitor. It’s something that will sure be good to know the next time you have a video interview.
