Are there any advantages of interviewing over Skype/zoom for MBB vs in-person? Just for example - Case interviews typically use frameworks, what if you have the print outs in front of you...lol?
Any suggestions on wireless headphones, preferably with a mute button to take Skype/teams/Zoom calls .

My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
Weird idea. Is there a way we could set up like a virtual work room? Like one where we're logged onto something like skype/messenger/Google meet/zoom/ZooRoom/Discord or something where we can all be working at night time, but at least not alone. It would mostly be silent, but misery loves company? I legit hate working alone for the whole day and then into the evening too.
Does everyone have a rule on what time they log off or shut off Skype/Zoom? What boundaries do you set for how late you’ll stay up?
I am nearing the end of my employment and will be officially laid off . Unfortunately I bought a new laptop since my old one is ancient. I expect to be doing virtual interviews and want to make sure I have the right equipment. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what type of software or equipment that would be best? We used Skype for business at my firm, but have no experience with Zoom. Is one favored? Your kind advice would be much appreciated!
With interviews mostly over the phone/Skype/zoom, is everyone still sending thank you emails? I’m working with a recruiter so I don’t always have the email contacts for the people on my interview.
I have Zoom job interview (not an in person) with a large multinational consultancy (but not MBB/Big 4) for a mid level role. Previous Skype interviews with them have been biz casual dress but this interview is with much higher ups and for a case study. BizCasual again or suit up? Suit seems over the top since they know I’ll be home.
Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?
Saddest part of people quitting before was seeing their name/email disappear from Outlook/Skype/Zoom/etc.. guess I’ll be seeing a lot more of that in the coming weeks 😢
Since we are in the business of branding and marketing, what happened to Skype? They did a lot of award-winning work around the world. But during this pandemic everyone immediately went to zoom, who has never done noticeable marketing. Does anyone know how or why?￼ Tell me before my account people explain how award winning wrk doesn’t work again.￼
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
How have you approached being on camera during the extended WFH routine? Some people are ALWAYS on camera while others just dial into calls that they would normally be on Teams/Zoom/Skype/WebEx for. I go on camera from time to time, but not for every single call. I’d be interested in learning everyone’s “guiding principles”.
How many different video conferencing apps do you have ? Zoom, Skype, ring central, google meet, Microsoft teams, slack, gotomeeting, Amazon chime is what I have so far. I don’t want any more 😩
When doing a Zoom/Skype/Webex or whatever tool you use for video conferences these days, do you ever wonder what kind of pants the participants are wearing? 🤣
Has anyone seen any good examples of brands (or TV or news shows) doing Zoom/Skype interviews well, with decent production value? Thanks in advance.
Point to ponder - Using the same resources (Skype,zoom, meetings, calls etc.) that were always available to us, why didn’t we work from home all along and wasted so much time commuting/flying?🤔
So sorry if this has been asked but, are we allowed to use zoom/teams meetings/Skype for calls with friends outside the company?
Skype/Zoom Meeting Bingo
Anyone else zoom conferences and Skype conferences dial in not working? Overload from WFH?
I’m intrigued by the rapid increase of people using zoom/Skype video on their calls - it feels like a trend in last 3 months . What’s people’s thoughts on this. Do you love it or hate it?
Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Skype?
Anyone using video conferencing like gotomeeting / Skype / zoom to sell life insurance or DI? What are you showing them or just video?

I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently. My PCP and a hand surgeon both said they had no idea what it was, since the location of pain was inconsistent. folks with wrist injuries: how have you coped? I feel lost without a diagnosis. I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I ￼￼am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations￼￼

How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
Social media/community manager looking for a job or temp work remote or in NYC! Any tips for good agencies to find temp work?
For the love of god, please let me deactivate incoming video feeds on Zoom when I’m on my mobile, otherwise I need to constantly move the presenter’s feed around to view a complete slide. Teams do that, and I don’t understand why Zoom, with its terrible UI, doesn’t allow that. And since you’re at it: make it obvious that you’re muted or not (with a discreet overlay sign for example)

I’m really sluggish lately and I do miss going into work or having the routine of being somewhere by a certain time. HELP!
How long are your banks WFH for? We hear back on 3/27 regarding potential extension, and I’m working remote right now....just curious if anyone has color on how long most banks intend to allow WFH
Office H&S team still going overboard with those home office ergonomics emails. They just don’t get it that this is a change only for them since they’ve always been in the cozy cute decorated cubicles all this while. The rest of the workforce freaking grew up making slides and crunching numbers in coach class middle seats. Anything at home is a luxury.

Do any of you struggle with the "tell me about the most stressful situation" interview questions? It feels inappropriate to talk about my non-business experience here, but the interviewers have my CV and know that I was in military. And it was way more stressful than consulting. How do you all handle this?

How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.
Just accepted an offer to work for a boutique consulting firm and lead their PE TDD advisory team. I’ve been second guessing my move and wondering if anyone had any guidance? What are the exit-opps from this role? Am I cornering my career path? Is TDD looked down upon in the PE space and why? What should I know before day 1? For background, I’m currently a data and analytics strategy consultant and took a 30% base raise for this position over a 15% raise internal promotion. anything helps

What do you think of PwC’s American restructuring by creating “Trust Solutions” and “Consulting Solutions” rather than the regular model of advisory/consulting, audit and tax? I am asking as an intern there right now looking into advisory and they did not let us really know. Also they are cutting jobs they actually want to add 100k workers in 5 years.
