I started sitting on an exercise ball to improve my core and apparently I was subconsciously bouncing up and down during a zoom meeting. Two people pinged me asking what I was doing— I am so embarrassed😩
People that are reaching out to strangers via linkedin: how are you conducting your networking sessions nowadays? Is it still primarily a phone conversation? Zoom webcam call? Or are in-person coffee chats coming back?
When you accidentally turn on your Skype video while shirtless during a quarterly team meeting w/management and it takes you a minute to realize it...omg
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂
A friend of mine is dealing with addiction in her family. Does anyone know of good zoom nar anon meetings?
Think I accidentally discovered this morning that I can add external people to Skype IMing by having them join a Skype meeting.
Is it unprofessional to quit over Zoom?
Can I join a Zoom depo midstream?
Ideas for a virtual happy hour/social events? We typically have associate social events every few months, but obv not now. Zoom lets you see everyone, but only one person can talk at a time. Ideas?
Anyone interested in a zoom networking event since that seems to be the norm nowadays. Thought?
What’s the best way you relay marketing information to sales? Have mostly relayed info about accounts active on our website/ registering for webinars via email to our sales team, and recently moved those alerts to slack. What works for you?
How many of you use Skype and not Teams?
After 3 months of having to use mobile Skype instead of desktop I can say the only good thing about it is I can ignore messages and people will just think it didn’t go through. Otherwise it’s garbage.
Anyone know of a high quality personal trainer? Someone that will tell you what to eat and what workouts to do to hit your fitness/aesthetic goals…No virtual/zoom bs or group classes
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.
What’s everyone’s next out of the blue call? Looking for a low cost call that is right after earnings where I can risk low but gain lot (ie zoom and docusign)
I talked about Zoom a lot. @easy day trade! Watch for it to break 447 on Friday big upside. I might day trade it again on Friday if it opens at 447 and hold
Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
Do you all check/reply your emails even when you take some time off/are off sick? I feel like I live in constant FOMO. Like something super important/urgent is going to happen even if I don’t have any trials or Ct deadlines coming up. If you do, how do you switch off?
Here’s what agencies need to do: only hire serious talent, not put 15 teams on each project, let the 1-2 teams who works on it see it through and have responsibility for making it happen...

Is it okay to stand up for yourself in big meetings/is what I said below okay? In a big meeting with the client, a colleague of mine said that the delay in our presentation was my fault and that I needed to manage my time better. This colleague actually was slower during our joint presentation then I was. I was able to finish my portion within my time frame and they weren’t. So I spoke up and said how the delay was more of a system issue which set everyone back 30 minutes in the beginning.

I'm currently in biotech as a program manager, and I want to jump to consulting so that I can land in corporate strategy/BD or potentially commercial strategy / new products planning. What's the best strategy to get noticed by MBB outside of their more common recruiting pathways? I have a master's in business, biochem PhD, and ~3 YOE in a large cap biotech. I've connected with people here from life science specialist firms, but I want to know if shooting for MBB is realistic.

Ever been promoted at your firm while on a project and you have to be rolled off bc your billable rate is higher than what the client has budgeted? Or does your firm find this as an opportunity to renegotiate the SoW?

How do you tell if an employer is okay with visa sponsorship on linkedin job posting? Some employers clearly mention that they are okay with this. For the ones that don’t, how do you find this info?

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
