How to get the attention of my boss for a promotion when he's working from a different state and I'm in NYC? All communications are through skype, phone etc.
Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?
What is feeling when your new manager is telling you are doing a bad job after three days of training and doesn’t offer to help you? She rather end a zoom call frustrated and gets upset at the littlest of things rather than train.
One of my coworkers started complaining that I didn't wear a mask on a Zoom call, because I might "infect the people coming into my house". That so-called person is my house cleaner, and we're both triple vaccinated and are fine not wearing masks. Should I tell my coworker to mind their own business?
Boss wants a zoom call to discuss revisions at 6:15pm. It’s been an hour and still they haven’t entered the room. How do I respectfully let them know they’re wasting my time and we just talk about it tomorrow morning?!

I want to get a rhinoplasty because it’s the one thing that’s always bothered me physically about myself and it’s especially potent now because of seeing my face on zoom all day. Cont in comments
Metaverse: Because what VR really needed is Dropbox, Instagram, and Slack with Mii avatars.
Is it inappropriate/advised against sharing my food Instagram with teammates? I also have a personal page that is public and also used as a blog and the two can be connected to each other. Someone asked about it in a slack channel that is all female engineers but Ofc I can’t control who it gets shared with outside of that
I just left my old firm and opened my own practice. I practice estate planning and elder law so it is not uncommon to meet clients at their homes or nursing facilities. Because we are in the middle of a pandemic and people are getting used to zoom conferences as well, I am considering foregoing a store front (at least until the pandemic is over). Has anyone opened their own firm and not opened a store front? If so, did that work? What were some things that helped you make it work? Thanks!
Hi everyone, I thought this might be of interest to some of you in the UK: if you're curious about joining a union for the creative communications sector, the creative comms workers are co-hosting an open event together with design and cultural workers (both organising under the UVW union) https://mailchi.mp/f6f0a89c1151/big-announcement?e=42015b6647 The event is on the 2nd of Feb between 7-8 pm GMT on Zoom. You don't need to be an existing union member to join and freelancers are welcome!
I dont feel the "hunger" that every advisor should have. If I do 100-200k in business in a single day I then start to relax, slack off, etc. What do I do to build that hunger in me?
Any parents out there feel dumped on when single people come in at 10:30 hungover so you have to pick up their slack? Or they need to take tomorrow off because Chance the Rapper’s last minute concert?
What does Zoom happy hour even mean?
Which one of these would you choose given the opportunity (ignoring TC)? Strategy & Bizops at a more well known tech firm (think square, slack, doordash, instacart, twilio, etc.) Data science at a mid size tech, b2b firm that is lesser known (think okta, Hubspot, crowdstrike) Data analyst/Engineer at a large tech firm (salesforce, stripe, uber)
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂
CVS Health 🐠, how dressed up to people get to go into the office? Would nice jeans be ok?
Hi all! I’ve been dating my bf for about 4 months now and there are some things he says/is into that make me believe he is either Bisexual or has gender dysphoria. I could really use someone’s advice who has a similar experience like this. Is anyone willing to chat? I just want to be supportive and helpful.
Can you get fired while you are pregnant in NJ? My work has been slightly affected due to what I am going through but my manager sent me a long email today pointing the things that had to be fixed. We have weekly one on one calls to discuss work. Maybe they are collecting evidence before firing me.
Do you feel the same? I both love WFH and am going crazy. I love that there is no commute, I can very quickly log on when nanny comes (so save money with fewer hours) and I see the baby sometimes. BUT I also feel like a caged hamster - I don’t get a break / especially if I’m back to back in calls and hate the monotony. I am pitching a project that will likely be local and I am both excited and scared about commuting again. So scared about how to manage it all.
What’s my responsibility for checking emails while I’m on vacation? I have great producer coverage for all my projects while I’m gone but I’ve never gone complete radio silence for an entire week.
How reliable is the Gartner Career site where you can see the status of an application? 2 weeks after an interview, and I haven’t heard anything but the status still says In Process.
ORD to LGA take two. Delayed again.
Would you rather: Be on a long term (>1 yr) staff aug project with boring, little work OR be on a short term (<4mo) super interesting barn burner project?
Sorry for this post. I generally half heartedly listen to "I had a dream last night" stories. First off they are yours not mine and secondly the actions never actually happened. With that let me tell you about my awesome dream last night 🤪🤪🤪 I dreamed that Corna was gone and I was able to go make a in-person sales call. It was magical.
I want everyone - client and internal alike- to stop saying “I’m stuffing my mouth”, when they are eating food. It is not funny, it is a disgusting thing to say and it is disrespectful to your food.
I have an offer with IBM - 18 lpa fixed and cognizant - 23lpa (22.3 lpa fixed). I asked IBM to revise the offer to match the counter, but they rejected it. I atleast asked them for 21lpa even that too rejected. The difference between in-hand salary of both comes to around 30k. Now IBM team is calling me continuously and asking if I am going to join or not. Please suggest.
How have you rolled off of an engagement? I started the conversation with my Sr and I was told "staff don't tell Sr's what to do." can you see why I want a change?
What are my options to negotiate better salary without an MBA as a M-3, Seattle, Tech, now@150k? 1. Boomerang 2. Get a better offer & ask to match 3. Speak directly with HR/senior leadership
If you just joined a project and are in the process of getting rolled off would you still attend all the daily meetings (5-6 different ones) knowing that you’re not adding any value and you won’t be on the project any longer?
Anyone know of some mock interview services where I can pay to be interviewed as a trail run and find where I’d need improvement?
