Crush It In Your Zoom Interview

This episode is brought to you by Pattern. We hope you'll check out their disability insurance offerings for docs at

Are Zoom interviews the future? They could be, if some sort of magic doesn't intervene in the course of the pandemic. Meanwhile, everyone has a love-hate relationship with video conferencing, and Dave fears that those on the sharp end of the interview may not have the technology and skills to shine brightly. So, with the help of Brandon Bacalzo, Sahaana Arumugam, Nathan Spitz, and Claire Carmichael (all M1s who, like you, are in the thick of virtual everything right now), we collect our thoughts on how you can remove the distractions and subconscious biases that could sink your interview.

What advice would you give for virtual interviews? Call us at 347-SHORTCT anytime or email! We need to hear from YOU!
