Example #1
"My current company has increasingly leaned on Zoom meetings and online platforms to collaborate virtually since the start of the pandemic. For the most part, it has been a great experience and an easy transition from our already tech-savvy approach before. One day, I was scheduled to present a new initiative during a team meeting, and my computer crashed 20 minutes prior to the meeting. I realized that I didn't have time to call our IT department and wait on hold, so I immediately began looking for another solution. Luckily, I had the presentation saved on SharePoint, so I emailed it out to the team from my phone and advised everyone to open the link while I was presenting. I joined the meeting through my phone, explained the slight hiccup to the team, and had them follow along from their own computers. Despite the inconvenience, my solution felt seamless."
