Do not have a personal computer so have been using my work computer for new job search activities like updating my resume and sending networking emails (using my personal email). When it comes to scheduling zoom interviews, do I just take them on my company laptop?

I know that they have the ability to track all of this and maybe they are…but I feel like I don’t care enough to shell out the money for a personal computer. Also feel like for interviews, I don’t want to use a new device that I am not comfortable with. Am I painfully naive? Is seeing that I’m in the job market grounds for termination? They definitely don’t seem to track my activity too closely to date, but I am worried that having zoom meetings with people outside my organization probably triggers a red flag in the system

Please don’t use your work computer for zoom interviews. That sounds like a really bad idea. If you really don’t want to get a new computer, you could zoom interview from your phone. Get a phone stand and practice the set up beforehand to make sure you are well framed. Or do you have a tablet you could use?

After reading my Monday post about my own career change, a reader asked: “What gave you the confidence to make those changes and help change your mindset?” 1. Daily meditation & writing about fears, gratitude, forgiveness, and wins shifted my perspectives. 2. Clarity on what my 1-3 year life plan looked like gave me a blueprint. 3. Interviewing people in roles that fit my blueprint gave me confidence I was on target. You can do this yourself, but a coach will get you there faster.

I am an office coordinator at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and want to break into the field of research. MSK has research coordinator roles, however when I initially applied after graduating, I didn’t get any interviews. I have minimal experience with research from undergrad. I’m not sure if it is possible to switch roles within MSK. I also want to go back to school for an MPH. Anyone have any experience with this or any tips?
