As working from home continues and Zoom fatigue sets in, many professionals have allowed virtual meeting preparation to fall on their priority list.

“Adjust the camera height so it’s coming straight at your eye level,” she says. “If using a laptop, that means ensuring it is at a 90-degree angle, and then physically lift the computer up to meet your eye level.
