If you had offers from Microsoft and Slack, which would you take? They both are offering the same base pay, although Slacks includes more RSUs.
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
are Skype calls always awkward
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
Agency producers help me out as I’m consulting with a friend who owns a regional prod co. Are you more likely to take an in person meeting or a zoom or phone call with a production company rep?
After 12+ years in FTE roles both agency and brand side in strategy/brand marketing/social strat roles. Thinking about taking it freelance. But I’ve never done freelance or consulting before - ever. Would love to connect with someone who’s done this (or does it on the side) - would anyone be open to do a Zoom call with me to answer questions/give me advice? As a token of my appreciation, I’d send you a Drizly (or Seamless, DoorDash, or UberEats) gift card so we could make it a happy hour!
Thoughts on Zoom job interview dress code? My instinct is a tailored dress or nice blouse. I feel like a blazer could come off as too formal but curious to know your thoughts/if anyone here has experience. Thanks in advance!
I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
Zoom tops for women? I’m going to another firm soon and will have to appear on camera more often. I don’t have enough blouses. Any great suggestions of where to shop (bonus for online)? I really don’t feel the need to spend a lot, but want to have some appropriate shirts ready to go.
Advice for conducting virtual interviews? Do you show the interviewer your paper over zoom? Can you get away with keeping some notes nearby to glance at during the interview?
How do I tell my manager I'm leaving the firm? First time quitting a job and I don't know the etiquette. I assume a Zoom is better than an email. Do I tell him where I'm going and why? Do I tell other people too or let him do it? Any important details to take care of?
New to recovery and had an intake call with an IOP program. They said all sessions will be on Zoom and I’m really nervous that I won’t connect to the program virtually. Anyone start rehab virtually?
I’ve been tasked with finding a good gift to give an entire team to celebrate a milestone in the project - hoping to crowdsource some ideas. Budget is ~75 dollars per person. Can’t imagine people want a virtual happy hour or something that requires a time commitment. What are some good gifts you’ve seen/received?
Does anyone know how to leave your skype status as available when the computer is off? Asking for a friend :-)

How do I ask for a salary increase when I’ve worked for less than a year? New incoming analysts are getting paid about 10k more than my current comp. My mentor who’s a senior manager even knows that my cohort is being underpaid....
Anyone else out there concerned that the market is going to go bear and we’ll be back to the days of endless layoffs and starving for projects?
