Post-COVID fishies: How long did it take until you felt back to your normal selves? Are you not quite there yet? It’s been just over a month since I tested positive and although the worst symptoms are gone, I’m so tired all the time. Everything exhausts me: laundry, walks (especially in the cold), all the back-to-back zoom calls… I can sleep for 12 hours, it’s insane. Just hoping to hear from others!
Come join us as we talk about Student Motivation and MORE. Why is motivating our students to learn so difficult? What can we do to help them WANT to learn? What are you doing that is working really well? Chat with teachers from all over and share, talk, vent, or just listen.
Have a BCG project leader first coming up. What’s the male dress code for a zoom interview? Thinking just nice simple dress shirt. Feels weird dressing up any more for Zoom.
Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?
Haha WebEx for me 😭😝
Can’t tell if I’m developing crushes on my coworkers only because they’re the only people I interact with (on zoom) in quarantine 😬
Anyone else find it strange that Slack and Company has advised their employees that they are shutting the agency down on Friday, yet they still have available positions showing up online.
Do Feds really not know we can see their Skype status that they have been away from their computer for 8 hrs on their telework day?
Im completely burned out on the weekly zoom chats I’ve scheduled with friends and coworkers to “catch up since we can’t see each other face to face.” Anyone else?
I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?
Hi music teachers! How are you surviving? I’ve been teaching band and choir for a long time, but distance learning and Zoom has me stumped. I’m lucky to have a job, I realize. What are some things you’re doing in your virtual classrooms that your music students enjoy?
Happy Wednesday! I am trying to plan with our AP and climate lead on what we can do in distance learning as a school wide event. I suggested we still host our multicultural club assemblies on zoom for the school. Anyone have experience with zoom assemblies to promote a positive climate in DL? Thanks!
Almost done with second weeks in industry. I absolutely LOVE IT! Ive been making a point to reach out to people from different teams via Slack and arrange a quick meet and greet zoom call. Been introducing myself mostly to the heads of each department, head of marketing, head of sales, head of product development. to get a better idea of what everyone does, and asked sales/product for walkthroughs of the products so that I know exactly what we offer as a company
Do I have my kid go to universal pre-K where he is in class ONE time a week and then Zoom (he is hyper active and Zoom learning is difficult for everyone) or cough up $28,000 for private school where he goes 5 days a week? Anyone else in NYC conflicted on where to send their kids?
How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/
Any advice on quitting without a two week notice? I’m at a regional boutique and we’ve had 3/4 of our other analysts leave and I’ve had to pick up the slack with no comp increase. I’m absolutely done and do not want to give a notice. My associate or VP who left earlier this year can be used as a reference so I’m not worried about that. Is there anything else I should make sure of before I leave?

Any recommendations for a digital calendar? I have used a paper agenda for as long as I remember. It works for me, but it’s too time consuming and I don’t always have it with me.
I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?
What is the best way to answer ' what are your Salary expectation' specifically in India's context . There are numerous content over internet which claim 'never' disclose your current CTC ..however you know that it is distant from reality..🙂
Does quoting 30 to 40% hike over current CTC a safe bet? Will it ensure that one will not get a bad deal or will it limit the horizon?
Anyone else feel this way? ☕️

OP, do you use it just for IM or do you use it for data sharing? How does this impact client data confidentiality?
^Yes. OP, this really needs to pass muster with the client and/or a partner. We (most consulting firms) don't use cloud apps because we can't guarantee the client's data will be protected.
What is this unicorn that you talk of? Can we do this on the firm laptop with the completely effed up load set of Windows that we get?

Nice! Many other teams on slack over there?
But to answer - no. I just always hear people rave about it.
Please expand EY OP
@OP are you in the Fed practice? I haven't heard of any firms using it yet but know of some fed offices using it
I'm in commercial. Definitely not a firm-wide thing but everyone on my team had no problem downloading straight from Chrome. It's cut my outlook down tremendously too. Pretty awesome platform
^ Good to know, OP. Will explore this option.
