Conducting Zoom meetings often?
Want to give yourself the more professional look?
These 3 simple tips will help!
1. Place your camera at Eye Level
Especially if you have a small laptop, your built-in webcam will usually point upwards during video calls.
You wouldn’t want your fellow meeting attendees to be constantly scrutinizing what you have in your nostrils or.. how many chins you have, right?
Use a few old boxes / books to prop up your laptop so that it’s at eye level.
It’s much better for posture too!
2. Soft frontal light makes a lot of difference
Your existing desk lamp should work fine. Just make sure it’s keeping your face lit.
Feeling the glare? Oily face problems?
Throw a white cloth or plastic bag over will help!
3. Neat = Professional
A clean background reeks professionalism.
(Also screams “I’m a responsible person!” even though the mess is outside what’s captured by the webcam)
Hope these 3 tips help!
