At first, it wasn’t a big deal
As the marketplace becomes more competitive than it has been in years, you will need to consistently display a high level of professionalism on Zoom. If you do it well, you will have better opportunities, while those who aren’t as adept in virtual settings will struggle.
When we first turned to Zoom, everyone cut each other some slack for two reasons. First, only a relatively few were familiar with the platform, meaning there was a learning curve for the others. Second, most of us expected we would be meeting like this for only a short while.
Times have quickly changed
Times — and expectations — have changed. Now, Zoom meetings are part of your life. You can’t escape them. Because of this, you need to be as professional on Zoom as you are in face-to-face meetings. Even if you decide that you won’t want to use Zoom in the future, your business associates may want to meet this way. Your clients and prospects may want to meet this way.
Zoom + public speaking = competitive edge
