I'm a 23F and I found a facebook group for nyc ladies looking to make friends. Then through that I joined a groupme that is pretty lively. I've been in ny for 3 weeks and hung out with ladies from the chat these past two weekends. The people I've met ranged from 21-25 yr olds from a wide range of industries & schools & original home states. Dm me for the link ✌🏽

Omg!! This sounds like exactly what I’d want. Messaging you!

As WFH continues on, I'm seeing our cultural initiatives slip away as it pertains to social connection and education/training. What are your agencies doing to either bring employees together while in WFH-mode and/or offer educational opportunities (for your discipline, and/or DEI)? It seems no one wants to get behind a computer screen for anything besides work. Does connection and education matter to people still or is it just about getting the job done?

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
