First impressions are hard. Virtual impressions are even harder.

Here’s the good news. The latest numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the economy heading in the right direction. But that doesn’t mean we can put on some real pants and head back to the office. Most companies plan to stay virtual. So, if you’re searching for a new opportunity, you need to be able to wow people through a screen.

According to Forbes, there are ways to prove you’re the best person for the job even if you’re half a world away.

For example, renovate your online presence. The internet lives forever. Those pictures of you from college are still out there, and in today’s world, a Google search of your name can be very revealing. Prospective employers want to see you out there in a positive light.

Next, improve your work from home experience. Let interviewers know you’re ready to go. Boost your Wi-Fi, buy another monitor and get a good webcam.
