In my previous Organization, I had taken a couple of interviews. Unlike zoom links at D during pandemic, those interview were mobile calls without the video. The candidates were specifically from Bangalore and Hyderabad cause the requirement was location specific. Once the pandemic is over, the person would work out of client location. I noticed, the candidates giving great answers on telephonic, but when it would be a client zoom/Skype call, the candidates would go mum. Anyone noticed that?

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.

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!

Hi everyone :) I'm currently trying to relocate from SoCal to Oklahoma! I have put in many applications for HR roles as well as admin. I have been working for Kaiser Permanente for over 6 years as a service rep and received my HR degree 2 years ago. I've had no luck in the company with any positions and I'm looking to start my HR career somewhere else. Do any of you have any recommendations for work either in the Tulsa/ Broken Arrow area or remote work? I would really appreciate any leads!

In my last company I suffered from poor management who yelled at / demeaned employees daily and overrided decisions with no scientific basis, leading to some dangerous/unethical handling of important issues (dealing with real patients). I have a background in bioengineering/math and am looking for research associate positions or clinical specialist/consultant roles in Long Island, NYC or remote positions ASAP. Any advice (or possible referrals)?
