If a company recruiter says she/he won’t turn on the camera on zoom but i have a choice, is it better to turn on the camera?
Do/can all admitted students join the admitted students Slack, or only those that have accepted the offer? This might be obvious but want to confirm
Have you ever heard of/seen a woman taking her breast out during a zoom call, even if she thinks she “muted” her zoom conference? See Jeffrey Toobin scandal.
What boundaries do you have in place as a FL? I just started and I feel like a hot mess with too much to do (business things, new calls, client work, slack, multiple emails, timesheets 💀). I’m so tired.
Recently during a call of the list (massive zoom, attorneys check in for their cases) an attorney called me out prior to her checking in saying it looked like someone didn’t belong/should not be on the call - me! Obviously, my camera was on. It was clearly a racial incident & others reached out to me affirming/apologizing. The Chief Justice (a poc) “investigated” and concluded my camera was off and doesn’t want to disrupt the bar. The racist in question said she saw me. Do I elevate this issue?
Can HR really work from home? I’ve been mulling over this concept and want to get everyone’s feed back. Recruiters and PEO yes that makes sense, but can we really serve our employees if we go remote and they are in the office. Hybrid thoughts welcome as well. I’ve been back in the office since Oct. 2020.
Im completely burned out on the weekly zoom chats I’ve scheduled with friends and coworkers to “catch up since we can’t see each other face to face.” Anyone else?
Why does Zoom have an office?
This is a disaster to watch. Wish this is a zoom debate and the meeting organizer can mute attendees!
How do you deal with condescending co-workers? I have been working with an engineer who has been incredibly rude and condescending through email & Slack. He’s not my boss, not even on my team, and he acts like he can tell me what to do. Have any of you dealt with that? What should I do?
In a zoom meeting, the client (main stakeholder/daily contact) casually said something along the lines of “if you do XYZ I will chop your hand off” in a half joking way. My manager was there with me and neither of us reacted or discussed this later. I was going to let it go because we already knew this client’s style and did not take it personal at all. However, my husband was very upset and strongly recommended me to escalate this. Any advice? Was I too “thick-skinned”?
How do you motivate an underperforming but new Senior? He's missing deadlines and lacks general job knowledge but I don't know what's an appropriate amount of slack to give and am becoming frustrated

I work with educators part time. Some are admin. We are doing a live zoom Oct 24th @ 8pm EST. This will give your an idea what we do. If you want info inbox me or email email@example.com
My firm just released a Zoom Pants Policy
Some have expressed interest in starting a meeting for this bowl, so I made a meeting ID on zoom. Before I schedule anything I wanted to pitch it to the group for thoughts on time and day and process
I also wanted to see if we could maybe use the group to create the meeting format. We have plenty of great writers in here, maybe some would like to take a stab at the script?
At the end of the day I want to help facilitate not dictate, so would y’all’s thoughts!!
I’ve got my first Zoom oral argument in a few weeks. Any tips to help it go as smoothly and non-awkwardly as possible? For instance, do people stand when speaking? Do you keep your notes on screen next to the Zoom window or print them?
Venture Capital Analyst zoom interview... what to wear? I assume a suit is too formal for VC...
Currently going for a job interview because my firm is imploding (one partner and one associate leaving). Super nervous bc it’s my first in person interview in years. This will be my second interview, the first zoom interview went well!
Any helpful tips on how to handle this? I can’t seem to calm my nerves. Probably bc I’m scared of actually getting an offer and having to quit my current job… even though i cannot stay.

I just received a great job offer from a great agency. However, I only started my current job a little more than a year ago, and I do really like the people and the company. Would one year at a place look weird on my resume? Or is it since the market is so hot, they'll see 2022 and know everyone was jumping around ?
