Cringiest hot mic 🎙 moment of WFH? I was on a webex and a phone call at the same time. The phone call was to provide so not very nice feedback about a peer. Turns out I was not muted in the meeting and said peer was on the webex. 😳

Lmao absolutely not. Big4<<<<

I had a camera moment. I was gorging on hot Cheetos before an org-wide call, and then logged in a haste because I had forgotten I was supposed to join. I suddenly saw 10-15 messages being dropped to me separately, all asking me to turn the camera off. Since the presentation was yet to begin, and everyone had disabled their cameras, all they could see was my hilariously orange face. 😂 I can laugh about it now, but I could have died back then!

Love that for you! 😂

I think the cringest part is you were on webex

I was letting my manager know that after repeatedly talking to said peer, he still was being very abrasive to the team and it was impacting their moral. It wasn’t anything he hadn’t heard, but there were others on the call. I apologized to him privately when I found out the mistake.

My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.

Need an opinion. I just finished week 2. I do an hour after school club at my district once a week on zoom and none of my own schools students participate.

I'm having trouble with virtual networking. I'm still 100% WFH. I'm not here to debate or justify that situation. But my industry is construction law, which has been continuing.

How can I reach out to new companies virtually for zoom coffees and such without being an annoying salesperson?

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

Has anyone seen any unique places to find UX portfolios or post jobs other than the usual suspects? Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went.
