A recent turn of events has forced us to re-adjust and look at our comfort zone straight in the eye.
For some, working from home is a typical occurrence, however, with businesses and schools closing their doors during this time of uncertainty, it has become a new normal for most of us to connect virtually. Luckily, we are still able to carry on with our daily routines thanks to the help of our trusted friend, WIFI, and of course our video chat companion Zoom.
For those who aren’t familiar with Zoom, it is a video conferencing tool that allows us to safely practice social distancing while staying connected with our co-workers, friends, and family. The platform is user friendly and the sign-up process is a breeze. To join a meeting, you have the option to dial in by phone via toll number or you can click on the link in your meeting invitation after having downloaded the Zoom app.
So, you’ve joined the meeting now what?
Will your face be present on every single screen of your loved one’s or fellow associates?
Yes… and no.
You are given the choice to enable audio or video. Just make sure to mute any loud distractions; such as screaming children and barking dogs if you decide to grace everyone with your face.
Which leads us to our next point: Video conferencing… it’s nerve wrecking when you’re not exactly feeling camera-ready! Popping in for a virtual meeting while lounging in the pajamas you have been rocking for the past 24 hours isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time.
Fortunately, you can use the Touch Up My Appearance option to make yourself look better without the need for applying make-up, and we can provide some looks to give you a boost of confidence while staying comfortable at home.
