Need gender reveal ideas (no fireworks 😝). Hubby is the only one who knows. He's going to surprise me in person this weekend. He needs help with the creativity and planning. Planning to have a virtual zoom party later for the whole family globally later.
What’s the best way you relay marketing information to sales? Have mostly relayed info about accounts active on our website/ registering for webinars via email to our sales team, and recently moved those alerts to slack. What works for you?
How do your employees reach out to HR if they have questions on benefits, paychecks, issues at work, complaints, sick time, etc. ? Is there an email distribution list for each area like payroll, benefits or a general HR inbox where the emails get distributed to the entire HR team? Or do you use Slack or a ticketing system like Zendesk to filter inquiries?
We went from 800 to 1,600 employees in 4 years and it’s now challenging to have the HR inbox as all 6 of us in HR & Payroll get those emails
Hi everyone! Just found this bowl and noticed it hasn’t been overly active in awhile. Let’s change that!
Also, I started doing the daily readings on the Conference of Bishops website. Anyone interested in joining me to set up a group bible study of sorts via zoom or something? Could be a good way to meet one another personally and professionally, and it’ll force us to hold one another accountable to do it everyday.
Anybody else have any good alts to Zoom?
Anyone has a great voice for zoom or conference call? I think some people are born with the voice to succeed during this pandemic. 😂
Colleague to me in regards to a department meeting our boss set up “I don’t think I can join this zoom meeting, I’m trying to socially distance myself from you guys”
Had an interview via Zoom w/DM & I could tell by the tone of the conversation that I got the job. I get a call from her for a 2nd interview. This time w/ someone in the same position I was applying for. In the middle of the interview, the manager says she’s looking for an assistant. Now…I didn’t apply for that role-I applied for a role similar to hers & my experience & skills make me qualified for it. Although I could tell I nailed the interview…I’m not interested in an assistant. What do I do?
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?
Parents - would you attend an optional, free, family-friendly biscuit making zoom class taught by a professional chef? If so, what time on a weekday?
Made it past two Skype/Phone interviews for an experienced hire senior associate 2 with KPMG, have the final interview in person at the NYC office. Only scheduled for 30 minutes, is that normal?
Anyone else getting pressure to always be on camera for all zoom meetings? I get some of the time but I don’t think it’s necessary for all. Any thoughts? Maybe you have a reasoning I don’t know about
Today my kid told their Zoom class that my job is to “calm down mad adults and help them agree on a story”. So yeah...I’ll stop talking internal creative reviews on speaker.

Recently laid off. Don't want to go back to agency side in account mgmt. Want to try something different, or go client side as a media manager. Thinking of taking marketing analytics class (cont)....
Has anyone dealt with being laid off early in your career? / have general uncertainty about your career path? Things aren’t going so well at my firm and it’s really impacting my mental health
Layoff bowl but who is really laid off?
When speaking with outside recruiters for contract positions about pay range. I always answer I’m looking for a competitive role where salary aligns with the market and job functions. They always come back with a number and say that’s the max they can go. What’s a basic range you can comfortably increase on that initial quote?
How long does Amazon’s interview process take? I’ve haven’t had an update from them in 2 weeks and wondering if that’s typical?
This is honestly an amazing opportunity and description besides the “LGB+” excluding the “T”…that gives of bad vibes
Got an RFE on i140, waiting to get the document to know the reason.! Anyone else got rfe on i140?
I'm new to this bowl and have a non-traditional background.
I joined McK after my MBA. Currently here for almost 2 years (Associate, going for EM) and I've done mostly transformation projects.
I'm considering to recruit for PE Ops instead of staying around.
Based on what I read here, I have a few questions:
1) Do I need modeling skills if I'm NOT trying to join the deal team?
2) What's comp in the long term compared to consulting?
3) At McK I'm working 70-80h/week. How's wlb in PE Ops?
Senior-ish capital markets associate in a V10. I’ve managed to coast the last few years, which has been great for WLB, but now I feel like I have no grasp on the black letter law involved in cap markets. I need to catch up and quickly. Anyone have advice on a cap markets crash course?
What are some ad agencies that have a reputation for being non-toxic for all individuals?
Car recommendations: Audi Q5, MDX Infinity BMW. Any other and your thoughts, very confused

I’m a new golfer who got into playing during the pandemic but need another set of eyes on my form after going alone for too long… any good recommendations for golf lessons in the Chicagoland area?
Additional Posts (overall)
Any best practices or success stories on reaching out cold to recruiters (or even employees) to inquire about working at a company I’d love to be at? No jobs are posted that fit my field/skills
What are the pros and cons of reaching back out to the same third-party recruiter who got me my current full-time job, and asking them to help me get a new one? My main concern is: Would they be likely to tell my current employer? Any reason for them to do that?
If I am moving to a new agency but with the same title, to how much salary bump can I negotiate?
I’m curious to know how can I follow up with a recruiter without looking desperate. The interview went really well, and she said she would reach out soon, but haven’t heard back from her yet.
I made to the final round interviews at Amazon for an account manager role. In my email, I saw that I have to do a case study, but I am having trouble with it. Anyone have any tips or@insight on how to ace this?
I've been through three rounds of interviews at a FAAANG-adjacent (I know, I know) company for a big role. Essentially my dream job. My last round was to submit an assignment, which I did on Wednesday night. On Thursday the internal recruiter responded and shared that "they'll be in touch about next steps very soon...no later than Tuesday!" Well, it's now EOD Wednesday and I haven't heard anything despite following up this morning. Is this a bad sign?
Kind of recently graduated in May of 2020. Would a college professor in my last semester be considered a professional reference?
Hey HR/Copywriters...what do you say about workshopping a resume from the heart.
No jargon. Brutally human. Slightly colorful.
The English language is so much better than the 500-lame-word ball and chain that resumes have been subjected to.
I’m a square peg in a round hole type of person anyway. DM me and I’ll have the jargon version and a first go at the colorful version ready to go. Let’s try it with yours also.
Anyone has any experience in the startup world? Who are the headhunters there? What’s the transition like coming from advertising? It’s time to for me to diversify!
Recruiters, have you ever had someone accept an offer letter and before they started “quit” to go somewhere else they found out they got accepted? Is this a common occurrence?
Finished the last steps for interviewing with
a company - reference checks. All my
references told me that they gave stellar
reviews on Monday.
It is now Thursday and no word on an offer.
Everyone seemed to like me - so much so
that they said they expedited my interview
So should I follow up today or wait until
tomorrow (Friday) to follow-up?
This is for a Senior Marketing Manager
Does anyone want to refer me as an Account Supervisor or Senior AE and get a referral bonus? A lot of experience, get in touch : firstname.lastname@example.org

Recruiters, can you please give us freelancers the avg range for jr, mid level, and sr level day rates in your city?
My made-up example:
I need sound advice please. What should I do without 🔥 bridges
3 weeks ago, I officially accepted a (remote) job, same position+6k raise. I like their values and work they do in tech and experiential.
While wrapping up my old job, I was still interviewing at other agencies and finally moving to offer stage (ill get a promotion + 15k raise). Agency has core values that match mine and better benefits with summer Friday's off 😎
LA is mad expensive and it's time for me to climb the ladder.
MISSING: have you seen my candidate who burned me & my client in a bonkers way?
tl;dr Made a CD CW relo hire for a client & found him an apartment with my landlord. Dude moved, showed up day 1, made a bunch of weird excuses, QUIT day 3, skipped town, burning me & my client BIG TIME. Truly unhinged & sketchy behavior. Obviously there's another offer. Male CW, white, 40s, unusual name. Recently working in France (American). THINK he's in NY. Sound like anyone you recently hired/work with? HMU!
Does anyone have a resume writer that can refer me to? Feel free to DM if you prefer! Thank you in advance
