Anyone know anything about the company slack?
What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
It's kinda bullshit that a lot of us worked hard to get into consulting and now have to deal with layoffs. While others are enjoying safe decent paying jobs even though they slack off.
How do you have a Zoom chat? Do you need a membership? Anyone in this group want to do a zoom chat? Would be great talking to people in this group.

Let's see if anyone can guess how I feel about Monday morning and another week of endless Zoom meetings.

I am a level 3 counselling student. Please note that means their are limitations to my work, there is a supervisor to support me.

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
Bit the bullet and bought a dyson airwrap. Here’s hoping for less time to look fab on those zoom calls 😅 any tips?
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is

I can't stop being angry and disappointed in myself. I'm on PTO and decided to take care a few of the household chores. I multi-task all of the time and can't help it. I forgot that I turned on the water to fill up the ultility sink in the basement and ran back upstairs to do something else. Well 2 hours later as I turn on the shower, I wonder why it's not getting hot. Then I remembered the basement. Obviously it overflowed and I had .25 inches of water on the floor (concrete) Cont
One of my white coworkers was telling us about how he applied to a different position, but he thinks the reason why he did not get it was because he is white and the company wants to hit a diversity quota. 🙄🙄🙄🙄

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?
Anyone else get anxious about requesting PTO? I know it's so stupid to feel anxious about it but I still do.
