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.
I keep seeing those LinkedIn polls about how many people want to work from home permanently, and it makes me kinda sad. I know a lot of people really prefer working from home, but as a junior who only started working after the pandemic began, it feels so strange to not have an agency to go to. I know all my coworkers faces only from seeing them on Zoom, and only in the context of work-related conversations. I hope I’ll actually get the chance to experience normal agency culture.
Does anyone have any service or app recommendation for note taking and/or task management? Ideally that plays well with the likes of Trello, Invision, Google Drive or Slack? Thanks a lot!
Is there a law I’m not aware of that mandates that every spot about a Zoom call, if you must create one, has to include a tangential bit about being on mute?
Whats the range for a senior manager at Zoom
Strangest place you've ran a webex. Go!
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
manager is toxic. always forces me to pick up other team's slack. Thinking whether I should quit the job or there is anything that I can do differently to keep me motivated.
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
You have a Zoom interview. You wear a nice top that will be seen. Are you still wearing sweats on the bottom, or dressing up fully?
Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
Can I join a Zoom depo midstream?
Why does the Skype for business app suck so much?
I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes. I feel uncomfortable being recorded and even more uncomfortable not knowing where it is going to be used. How do I say no to a conservative teacher who will push very hard for me to do it anyway?
Is there a skype status for “Don’t talk to me"
My 2nd grader & 24 of his classmates behave and communicate better on their daily zoom call.
Interviews.... I’ve been with Accenture for 10 years and starting to get a few bites outside. Do you still wear suits to a interview or zoom call or is business casual ok? Years ago it was always suits but not sure about 2020. Not an executive role. Thanks and have a great thirsty Thursday!
My firm’s support staff went through a shuffle and my former assistant got a promotion. I’m so happy for her, but was bummed to lose her as my day to day support. I was assigned a new legal assistant and we just are not vibing. Most recently, she changed my wording on something without asking. Has anyone dealt with this before? Any tips?
Has anyone had success “holding a meeting” through Marriott to obtain the 10 elite nights? I’m 6 elite nights shorts to renewing titanium elite for this year and debating trying the meeting option
Is anyone else currently writing training documents that have the potential to replace them at work? Asking for a friend…

Currently on H1B (it has been less than a year) and just applied for Green Card through marriage. I really want to leave my current company and don't want to be tied to H1B while searching for new job. Is it safe to leave your company and use your work permit from the GC application?
Email after applying to job: "Don't worry, a hiring manager will review your resume. It's not going into the cybersecurity abyss!" Me, a week later: "So you're INTENTIONALLY ignoring me?!?!!" 😂
Cleared my role related knowledge round for google TAM and have cognitive ability, leadership, and case study next. Any tips on how to prep for cognitive ability? Thanks fam!
I’m a lateral who has only been at my firm since this summer. My OCD has never been seriously addressed and is starting to seriously interfere with my work. Like I spend hours distracted by it each day. Would asking to go on leave this early into new job be death knell for my big law career? I’m only a rising third year (and one who has been letting mental health interfere for a while now, when I think about it - so I was not the superstar A+ junior).. it’s not like I’m super valuable.
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
Quick check-in. As you get ready for a new week in the classroom. On a scale of 1-10, how are you feeling?
I feel so stuck in my life (28F). I just want to find my person and start building a life together. I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. I just want to create holiday memories with my new family and instead, I’m looking at another season with my dysfunctional as hell family. I know a negative attitude and comparing myself to others isn’t helping me, but I can’t seem to lift myself out of my funk…
I got the covid booster and the flu shot (on different arms, but they can be on the same arm). As someone that went through the IVF process fearing a breakthrough case and positive COVID test result that would cancel the cycle, this is going to give me peace of mind going forward. CDC planning for pregnancy bulletin on the COVID vaccine:
It’s been 3 year since my ex and I broke up. We see each other from time to time with little interaction or conversation. The fact is that we have to cross paths for pretty much the rest of my life. My feelings about her were either annoyed and resentful. Those feelings lastedup until about a week ago. Since that point last week I have had a cloud of dread and a sense of sadness as if I missed her. Why out of no where does Thaifeeling come about? Has anyone on here experienced somethin similar?
I’m in the process of transitioning out of the Army in the next few months, so far I’ve been fortunate enough to get offers from two (hopefully three soon) reputable consulting companies. I’m wondering how everyone handles receiving multiple offers and how you handled things.
