I feel leading meetings virtually - zoom/Webex has been more difficult then in person. I also don’t think I am doing a great job leading them because there is awk silence sometimes. How to know if I am not doing a great job and how to improve?

Welp. Had an interview scheduled for this morning for 30 mins. I join the webex & nothing. I email the recruiter after 15 mins and get a response saying the interviewer had something come up and would like to reschedule. Is it dramatic of me to be bothered by the fact they didn’t even apologize? Meanwhile, I have another interview for a different company Monday & the recruiter reached out today asking if I had any questions or do a zoom test run.

Quarantine emotional-outreach update: at the end of most zoom/teams/webex calls— when Ive been seeing peoples faces and smiling and having a nice enough time—I have to fight the urge to say “I miss you” or even “I love you” as Im signing off. (Not clients, just work people, but that’s bad enough)

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.

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”.

I hit my juul without thinking on a zoom conference during a 2 hour meeting. Nobody said anything but I definitely got some weird looks. Is this going to bite me in the ass? Should I apologize or just not say anything?

I had my first ever deposition today, and it was via zoom. I wore a suit jacket and blouse, while all the other participants (all male) were in polos, collared sweatshirts, or button ups (no ties, no jackets). What is the normal attire for a deposition, zoom or otherwise? Did I overdress? Can I just wear a blouse and cardigan the next time around?

Any recommendations from my fellow accountants?

What do you wish you knew when you were asking for your first raise? I’m well over half a year from that conversation but it’s on my mind. Me and my partner have sold a good deal of work but is that enough? Because there are times when I know I could have given more to a project, but I choose my mental health instead. This is so toxic but I feel like I’m not pulling enough all-nighters to earn a raise—like it’s some unspoken rule that my whole team is thinking but not voicing.
