Stage your area
Greggs encourages hiring parties to extend some grace, and understand that everyone is adapting to the new normal of working from home. But, to job applicants, she does recommend, “If possible have a space where there’s no distractions. Do some staging. If you don’t have a clean background or there are things you don’t want them to see, put up a virtual background.” She also suggests letting anyone else who lives in the home know that you’re doing an interview, so as not to interrupt it.
