Virtual assessment centers will become the norm for the majority of the organizations after the Covid-19 pandemic! How can one succeed at them?
Being prepared but also making sure that you are genuine. Strike a balance!
Test your technology – Double check your video, audio, and battery if they are working efficiently on the previous day itself.
Remain focused – If one exercise doesn’t go as well as you hoped, don’t let it set you back.
Think about what makes you stand out and remember to draw upon it. Focusing on your strengths helps in the long run!
Good virtual etiquette is a must and will be prevalent in the business world going forward. Don’t let a mistake put you off. Having confidence in what you are saying goes a long way!
Make eye contact with the camera – Having eye contact with the camera engages assessors far more, though it may feel unnatural to you!
Do note that the light isn’t behind where you are sitting as it throws a shadow on your face and making it difficult for assessors to see and observe you properly!
How will virtual assessment centers be different from traditional assessment centers?
