All y'all who be testing providence during webex meetings 😂😂😂 https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/28/us/good-morning-america-will-reeve-no-pants-trnd/index.html
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?
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
I thought I was cute and adorable until I saw myself on zoom every moment of the day. I now know I a so average 😒
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
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
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Its time to bring out the pataguccis for zoom calls https://www.instagram.com/p/CULW3NKJjGI/?utm_medium=copy_link
What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)
Today is my 40th birthday and I'm doing it big this year. Took the day off to relax and catch up on reading, cooking and drawing. 😃 No emails, no slack, no meetings.
Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭
I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms. I don’t think I’d want to make a career out of it given the long hours, however I’m contemplating accepting the role and doing consulting for 2 years and then going back to industry. Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!
MBA 🐠 I took the GRE after undergrad. Happy with the score. Should I still take the GMAT before applying?
Anyone here from the Google office in Detroit? Seeing a job I’m qualified for and I’m wondering what the culture of the office is like. It seems like a small office compared to other Google offices I’ve seen? Does it have a cafeteria with free lunch like the Ann Arbor office? 😉
Anyone has insights on buy side quant research comp? I have 3 YOE, doing online MS, looking to negotiate. I only know 1 quant friend who’s 4 YOE, no MS/PhD and just negotiated 300k.
Here goes it! Driven F 🐠s between 34-40. Anyone out there looking for sth meaningful with yngr M (30) who is driven but not enough to chase consulting ladder? Age filters on apps making this hard!!
Notice there are so many people with debate experience in consulting. Kinda impressed. Any highly recommended books related to debate or communication in general?
To people who have moved from big 4 to mid size, have you found it to be easier dealing with smaller clients? Are the hours/pay better?
Has anyone switched from B4 to a smaller firm like BDO? Is there any real difference or is everything essentially the same and just not working with as large of clients and complex engagements?
How do you stay in shape on your project?
Hello All. I am a recent licensed attorney in NY and AZ. A former judge from Albania. I hold a JD from ASU. Unfortunately, being only focused on trademark associate positions, I have not landed my first year associate job. Actually working in house as a trademark paralegal. Do you remember how did you get your first job as a trademark attorney? Where is a good place I should send my resume in AZ, NY, or for remote? New in the States and I do not have such network! Thanks

5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
EY 🐠, is it normal to have only 2 interviews and get an offer after a week? I have had 2 b2b interviews in one day, both went great with a SM and M. I think I am fairly under qualified for the position but received an offer. Any thoughts on lack of communication with the recruiter, yet receiving an offer? If anyone is willing to DM I can provide more details and seek further feedback
So many intern candidates leaning heavily on their sorority/fraternity experience even when they have had previous internships. Thoughts?
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
