HLAA Webinar: Best Practices for Landing a Job in a Virtual Environment

November 18, 2021



The new virtual world we are engaging in can be a bit uncertain, especially when it comes to interviewing and navigating the job search process. During this webinar, candidates learned best practices, tips and tricks for navigating the recruitment process, from the initial conversation to onboarding in a virtual environment. Seasoned recruiters whose organizations have pivoted quickly to accommodate the virtual world shared their perspectives. We also heard from a student leader who has worked through the virtual recruitment process as well.
