LILLIAN MINIX, from page 1 to persevere through the afternoon sleepies. Prep yourself with a cup of coffee or glass of water and a light snack in case you didn’t eat before your call. ❚ ❚ Be prepared. It’s not only the Girl Scouts’ and Boy Scouts’ motto, it’s also a great reminder to check up on your technology before joining a call. Ensure your internet is active, your camera/mic are working, and that you’re in a well-lit, quiet area. Don’t be afraid to use a company provided Zoom background or to use one of the many filters that Zoom provides in case there are disturbances behind you. ❚ ❚ Be present. Pay attention, take notes, and research on a side window, if needed. No one said having two windows open at the same time was rude, but be sure you’re still networking in the moment. If you’re presenting, silence your alerts so others don’t get distracted by your co-worker’s last-minute email request. Zoom also has a “hidden self- view” feature which allows you to focus on others in the session rather than yourself. ❚ ❚ Be invested. Think about how to connect with people online when the networking event is over. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are all great ways to keep in touch with the connections you’ve made during a virtual session. You did, in fact, meet these people via the internet, why not make long-lasting connections there too? The world is ever-changing, and we can’t make the argument that networking wasn’t headed in this direction before the pandemic anyway – but the silver lining of our virtual world is definitely that our access to a technologically-driven AEC industry was catalyzed by need. What’s in the future of virtual networking? While we’re not totally sure, we can probably expect a heightened sense of purpose for our Zoom calls and eating lunch behind a computer screen.
