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?
Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?
Just had a client FaceTime me to present because her Skype wasn’t working...that’s a new one.
Sometimes when I feel like I'm having just an average day and my boss's skype says out of office I'm scared she has some kind of sixth sense about it and is on her way to come fire me. Anyone else?

Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Do you ever feel awkward when everyone’s camera is on during a zoom meeting, except yours?
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬

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
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Hi guys. I am looking for ideas for zoom work happy hour. Trying to boost teams morale in the current environment. Any suggestions or somethings you tried with your teams?
Zoom meetings are a lot like dating after 30: soft light, flattering angles, and relying on personality can get you surprisingly far.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is

For those interviewing with Wharton: how many mock TBDs did you do before your interview? And, how did the TBDs go for your teams?? Thanks!!
Does anyone else feel like WFH has made higher ups notice you more? I feel like when we were in the office I was always judged by my looks, how young I was, my ability to make small talk, etc., but not the content or quality of my work. Now that the only thing they have to judge me on is my work, it seems like everyone wants to work for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful but also TERRIFIED to go back in the office and watch all that momentum go down the drain.
