Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.

Ha! In fairness it’s on the personal side. A sibling who continually reminds us that she can do this for family meetings.

It’s mindless to setup a Zoom meeting. All it takes is a click of a button.

Is it the correct use case for Karen? Noob here sorry

No, but now that it’s the soup du jour everybody is going to try to sound cool by using it and most will use it incorrectly.

Wrong use of Karen. Did she complain to manager about zoom? Was she being racist? Then it's not Karen.

Confession: I wondered about my use of Karen. Felt deep down it was a bad choice. Glad you are all here to corroborate that. 😂

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!
