Dear Ivar & fellow pilgrims,

I am hoping you can help me with this unusual pilgrim query!

I am walking the camino and have to do an online interview on the 9th June.

Do you know if there is a business centre/conference centre near Sarria or Villafranca del Bierzo or anywhere nearby, that I could use for the interview?

I need access to a computer with video and webcam and Microsoft Teams.

I don't want to have to fly home for this and figure there must be somewhere along the Camino that I could use.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide!

The parador in Villafranca del Bierzo has a business centre.

Thanks everyone for your very helpful replies. I have been checking hotel business centres but most don't have a webcam on their computers. I have been asked to use a computer instead of my phone, so will keep trying. Thanks again!

Can you buy a camera and install its software on the computer you are using?

If you can’t find a computer with a camera, you can dial into Teams with the hotel computer, and then dial in with your phone as the webcam.

Use whichever has better sound for audio - turn it off for the other. Use the larger screen for incoming video and screen sharing.

Let the interviewer know in advance that there will be “two” of you.

And test this if possible with a friend first.

De Nada. And good luck!

The last time I interviewed for a job, a week long process, I was on the beach in Cannes.

The interviews were in the evening after I’d been floating in the ocean all day. I was so relaxed and happy that I sailed through and got the job.

The tech issues can be overcome.

Thanks Katherine, glad (and reassuring for me!) to hear you sailed through :)
