Does anyone actually care how “put together” I am for video calls on my work from home days? I’m on time, I’m actively listening, but i also just did a spin class and am enjoying my morning coffee … so what?!

Nothing like the good ole “My camera is acting weird again! I really need to get this thing figured out”

I’ll find my post from another thread but in summary during WFH full time while we were all remote, I typically wore jeans yes, however I did wear nice blouses, tops and kept a blazer and or cardigan nearby. I also maintained my hair and makeup routine. I was very disciplined about keeping my camera on even if I was the only person. It was important to me to be fully present and engaged. I had direct reports and interacted cross functionally with other senior leaders. It did not go unnoticed. Personal Branding.

Think about it from a different perspective, what do you want your “professional brand” to reflect?

I call your raise and raise you again: How soon until the appearance is a non-factor and your contributions and display of personality in your work environment reflect your brand? Of course wouldn’t apply for influencers, etc., but I think as we transition over the next 5-10 years we’ll see quite a bit more of this!

Being casual on WFH calls is part of my personal brand. (Exceptions for new client conversations and super senior leadership)

That wasn’t OPs question. Nor my response. It is about what they want and their personal and professional branding, what they are comfortable with and how they want to appear. I offered “my personal and professional branding”. You don’t have to agree with it.
BTW, I don’t know what old school thinking is. I enjoy looking fashionable & fabulous!

Just do you op. Don’t always have to be made up etc .

I don't think anyone cares unless it's a call with client stakeholders

Okay, it’s time to stop putting on a face about this. I love my boyfriend so much, but covid is ruining us. We are both still WFH and argue every few days about the dumbest stuff. My and his mental health are both diminishing and it feels like an impossible trench to dig out of. My stomach hurts every time we fight and I (independent of him) feel so stuck in this horrible global crisis. I don’t want to lose him, but I need to figure out how to dig us both out of this unsustainable mental state.

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, impress the heck out of the panel and push for that higher salary. You'll be surprised how open this conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open/upcoming roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.

I’m trying to transfer departments at my company and I talked to the MD of the department i wanna transfer to, and told him working remotely is a requirement to me, and he said he’s not sure if that’s possible, and that would depend on HR and the hiring manager. He still forwarded my resume to HR and I got an interview. How should I negotiate to make the role fully remote?

Most of my freelance work over the past three years has been cannabis industry related. I was hired in the beginning of November in-house for a growing brand. (pun not intended) It feels like the wild west where anything goes and most people seem to be winging it.

So much potential to do great work, but nothing I would show or be proud of. I did better work as a consultant.

Anyone else working on the Brand side of the cannabis industry? Thoughts?

Do you know anyone who after knowing then for years you realize they don't really stand for anything? There's nothing in which they say, "This, according to my values, is my red line and I will not participate in X." They get along with just about everyone and don't have much reaction when they're snubbed or slighted.
