How do you handle this: candidate hired 2.5 weeks ago after 3 rounds of interviews over 4 weeks. All via zoom so only half of upper body was visible. Now for the first time she’s letting the firm know she’s pregnant and expects to give birth next week and wants the firm to give her paid leave for 8 weeks plus unpaid 2. We’ve all been full remote. During interviews it was made very clear that next 6 months will be all hands on deck due due to a couple of major deals.

Is anyone here friends with their fellow colleagues? I started a remote job several months ago and no one goes into the office. We see each other over zoom and have the occasional group meeting in person. I’d like to get to know these people better and grabbing lunch or a coffee is doable but I’m wondering what has worked for others in a remote world?

I have an intro call with an Accenture recruiter about a job I was referred to, next week, typical intro calls are 10-15 minutes and on a cell phone, but guess this is on Zoom for 30 mins. How should I dress (tie, button down, suit jacket) and what should I expect in the call?

I know this these are pretty basic question, but haven't interviewed in 2 yrs and this is my first remote interview sooo figured I'd ask the bowl. (phone glitched out...)

Does anyone’s manager ping them almost daily to “hop on a zoom call real quick?” My manager has been doing this more and more and I often don’t see the message until 15-20mins later due to heads down work. 1.

Just started a new job and on the first zoom meeting my manager called me out and said “why do you look so serious?” Confused I just said I was focusing lol and then they said “you should smile more, it looks better on you”. Honestly felted weird after this encounter as I have never met this person before this meeting. Definitely made the vibe strange especially since there was 15+ in this zoom room lol

Covid has shaken a ton of things up, but one of the few things have have massively improved is interviewing for jobs!

I have just taken 20 interviews over a 3 week period! All on Zoom and Teams and all during regular business hours, and the best part: from the comfort of my own home. It’s been great!

Do any of you remember how much effort or how long that would have taken before!?!? The drive downtown, getting ready in a suit and tie, taking PTO from work, 15 min wait in the lobby, etc. 😩
