Zoom interview for a job I don’t have any real experience for. They have my resume. Do I cut right to it that I’m not specifically qualified but eager and able to learn? Or skip over it assuming they’ve seen my background and are still interested enough to interview, fake it til you make it style?
What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
Hey guys I just found a website that keeps you available on Skype/Teams, Windows, and VPN when you need to step away from your desk. Been using it a lot during COVID-19 WFH and wanted to share. www.lurkfromhome.com
Most creative way to keep your Skype status from going “away” when you have downtime. Go!
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?
Strangest place you've ran a webex. Go!

Advice question: I am having a home maintenance issue that’s affecting my sleep (something with our pipes or something in the ceiling that’s causing a lot of noise at night, totally sucks). In addition to being a tired monster, I have been watching myself on Zoom and my eyes are super puffy and have giant bags under them. Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏

Two weeks into a 2 months projects and the client has pushed me out of the project because of "budget constraints". I do not have a problem with it except that my instincts are telling me there were racial motivations with the move. Has anyone here experienced this type of thing and how do you deal with it 'cause it's getting my head?

My intern was assigned the role of “strategist” on an intern-project and they asked me “Wait, so I just have think about stuff, I don’t actually have to DO anything??”
Starting to venture out after a year of being home and meeting friends again. We are still WFH. Stayed home because of family issues, I'm not terrified of covid, far from it. Anyway. I feel overwhelmed by the social interaction. Like just going to dinner feels like too much on the senses. I talk to much and come off kind of hyper. I feel like I've lost all my social skills. Is this social anxiety? Anyone else experience something similar?
