With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?
Hi guys! I know this has been asked before but can anyone recommend a therapist that they’ve been seeing? Ideal if they’re based in NYC but if not, those of you doing it through Skype,do you think it
Campus recruiters: I am not a premium employer on Handshake but I want to host a multi-school virtual info session. Can’t I use the same link for a Teams meeting (or Zoom or whatever) and request events at each of the schools I’m targeting? I know that’s a lot of manual work to set up the individual school events but is there any reason that wouldn’t work? It’s been a while since I’ve had to do this and I don’t want to have to re-do anything and look messy! Thanks for any tips in advance!
11:59 and can’t sleep because I have the WebEx leader has not yet joined the call music stuck in my head. 🤦♂️
Any zoom meeting users ? Recently it has been restricting sharing the whole desktop and allowing only one app at a time. Also, putting participants in the lobby by default. Anyone else saw this?
What is your avg screen time? I’m using at 7-8 hours each day which seems insane but maybe it’s because I use my phone for all the zoom calls?
Microsoft Teams is driving me crazy. I feel like I’m always at work. Yesterday I was at a family bbq and I was constantly getting pinged. Every time I get a message notification I feel like I’m about to have a panic attack.
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?

i am irrationally angry/annoyed at my job and it’s affecting my personal life. My bosses expect me to pick up the slack from other coworkers and I am one of the only people on the team who constantly has statutory deadlines year round (both GAAP or IRS driven) so slacking off really isn’t an option. any tips on how to cope? i don’t want this affecting my romantic relationship
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Recommendations for a good webcam for Zoom meetings? My laptop camera isn’t cutting it anymore.

Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
How do you go about disclosing it to your partner/team if you’re jumping ship from one b4 to another? Don’t want to burn bridges
Has anyone read the book Divorce the IRS by James Miller? I recognize that it’s a relatively new book so not that many people have probably had the chance to read it. But my mind is blown. Should I be pursuing a Roth 401k and not traditional 401k? It seems that even if I retire early, the Roth 401k provides way more tax advantages than traditional. Am I missing something?
Got an offer with Amazon that requires occasional international travel. What’s the travel and stay policies like, can any Amazonians share? Also does Amazon reimburse mobile bills? Heard they are very petty and expect like by line itemization?

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring. I’ve been in HR now for about six years and have never had a mentor. I’ve been relying mostly on SHRM and other people in the company for feedback. Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

If anyone is interested eliminating the IFs in their employee model practice let chat. I’ve been consulting advisors for the past 10 years on ways to dominate the IFs.

Seeing a fertility doc after having a miscarriage in May and not having success getting pregnant since. They suggested we do IUI but recommended genetic testing, HSG and blood work prior to it. Has anyone had bloodwork done and been told they lost their immunity to MMR and Varicella (Chicken pox)? Being told this puts things on hold for another 3 months to get these vaccines.

Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html
