What is a fun/dramatic tv show to watch for a zoom date? We already had one date several weeks ago. Preferably something interesting but also something we can talk over. Thanks for the suggestions!
30 weeks pregnant and instead of having a zoom celebration, I’d just like to send an email to family and friends to upload their selfie on a website with words of wisdom for us first time parents (which we can print into an album book of some sort). And ideas on what website to use for this? Or any other creative ideas to get family and friends involved that does not require an online party? Thank you
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
I feel for the jr’s who have started their careers in this remote world, missing out on all the experience that comes with being in an office surrounded by people and creative work instead of the silo of WFH. Any suggestions on how to keep them engaged and learning without it feeling forced with zoom tutorial sessions?
Anyone know anything about the company slack?
What do you guys say to introduce yourselves on zoom? I said my name and team, then stopped for the next person to go…everyone stayed silent for a bit because they expected more, and they looked like they thought I disconnected lol 😭
Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?
Important Zoom Person, “Could everyone go on mute.” Text from coworker, “We can hear you poop.”
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
My 2nd grader & 24 of his classmates behave and communicate better on their daily zoom call.
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.
Brace yourself, Dec 28 is tomorrow, and anxious IRS fan-base is gonna come knocking into your zoom
I have an industry-based meme as my Zoom virtual background. Unprofessional or friendly?
When placed on a team where work is unevenly done/you have to start picking up the slack, how do you bring that up (nicely) in the team without going to the manager?
Anyone have a great CFP that works with folks remotely (I.e., via Skype or FaceTime) or in Boston? Looking to learn about the unknown, e.g., tax loss harvesting, 529s and other similar vehicles, etc
Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?

Acknowledging that this is a sensitive topic, what are thoughts on layoffs in the current climate? Firm initially mentioned no planned layoffs, but has begun recently. Benched for abut a week at this point, but I assume this is a sensitive topic for us all... Any thoughts?

Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.
In-flight meal included boneless chicken. Mine had teeny-tiny bones. Silently choked trying not to wake the guy beside me. Told the FA. FA said to call United. How many points?
Traditional vs. Roth? starting with 401k & request advice. Inclined to traditional coz: 1) unemployed @ 60 will be a lower tax bracket 2) putting all the tax deferred amount now to grow compounded

At what level in consulting, in B4 or ACN, does WLB gets more manageable and in control, if ever ?
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
