How often do you talk to your staff and director? Started a new job in industry and we are still WFH. I’m still pretty new and would normally stop by to talk to people. We don’t have regular team meetings. So I guess Skype message is my only option, but check in once a week? This is outside of work emails, just to chat. I don’t want to be annoying and want to get to know my new coworkers. Any advice appreciated for this introvert.

If you miss a zoom meeting your bosses are on as well as other attorneys because you overslept where you were supposed to share some updates on cases you are working on as part of the conversation, do you apologize and tell them you missed your alarm OR make something up (white lie) of something that came up that you had to deal with?

If you’ve interviewed via Zoom/WebEx/Teams etc. recently, did you use your personal computer or work computer? My personal laptop is old and the camera is nowhere near the quality of my work laptop. Is it crazy to use my work laptop? Side note - the interview is via Microsoft Teams, which we use in my office for internal communications. I’m comfortable with the using the platform, but have no idea how meeting info is stored.
