(Cont) supplementary dumb question, but should I put on a jacket/tie for Skype interviews?

helpful

Same rules apply as face to face. I would dress based on who the interview is with but I think I’d go jacket at least. Make sure you test your camera set up and nothing is in view in the background that you don’t want to be seen — dirty clothes, old anger mgmt drawings, dishes, etc.

Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!

[H-1B questions] I have my U.S. embassy interview in a few weeks, after that I understand it takes a few more weeks to get the visa if approved. 1. After these steps, can I enter the U.S or are there additional time gated steps? 2. How much time do I have to use this H-1B visa to get into the U.S. (e.g., 2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months)? 3. Can I work in the UK during this time after visa approval and before I move to the U.S. as I wait to find an apartment etc Thank you so much for your help!

I just got an offer for a part time internship. Combines both my current job skills (I don’t like my current job) and my passion. I want to take this and quit my current position, and it feels like a great transition position, but am a bit nervous to do so. However, I’ve been getting interviews recently and have enough savings for a few months if need be. Any advice or thoughts appreciated! 🙏
