Spouse (who is a lawyer) and 2 kids, so everyone was on zooms all day every day. I converted a dresser to a standing desk in our bedroom and it’s been great. We have 5 bedrooms and plenty of space, but people get very annoyed when you take calls in public areas.

I have a 1 bedroom and have mine in the living room. I like to keep my bedroom very sparse and peaceful, makes for a better sleeping experience.

At the beginning of WFH I had my desk in my room. I began taking naps on my lunch break and no longer wanted to do that. To remain productive, I moved the desk to an extra room to keep work and serenity separate. I have 3 bedrooms.

In house with main lvl plus a bsmt. 5 bedrooms total; 3 upstairs (all used) and 2 downstairs (guest rooms). The living room and kitchen upstairs are too small to fit in my desk. I have plenty of space downstairs but it’s too dark and depressing to remain there for 8+ hrs in the day. I also get better signal upstairs.

BGC In my bedroom next to my bed.

Let’s talk office set ups. I am looking at a Uplift standing desk as my big splurge because I have back issues, and the room I work in has horrible lighting so I’m considering some sort of selfie light ring type thing that I can clip to my monitor. Anyone have feedback on either the desk or a light they like, or any other ergo friendly home office hacks you’ve found helpful?

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
