Etiquette: Zoom meetings
As we turn to video conferencing more, there
are some ground rules and etiquette we should adhere to.
Dress for the job you have, not the job you
want. Do not wear your pajamas.
When you are participating on a Zoom platform, put on
Stage your video area.
Keep in mind that people do not just see you, they
are also seeing whatever the camera is pointed at behind you. Maybe arrange it
so that your camera is not facing towards a pile of unfolded laundry?

unemployment can take a toll on your health. It is important
to take care of yourself. It means looking after your physical
and emotional needs and managing your stress level. Helpguide.org listed several tips to managing a healthy lifestyle while looking for another job:
You have served your time, learned
from your mistake and now you are trying to find a job. Yet, ever where you go you cannot find a job. At this point you are at a folk in the road. You have options, although you are not
feeling it right now. You can turn to
the right and keeping looking for a job, or you can turn to the left and make
some quick money that possibly might land you back in jail. Your decision is a measure of your
character. How you handle life challenges is a measure of how successful you will be.
