Hey Metafishies! I’m looking for a mentor for pivoting into AR / VR design. I’m a recent grad and Art Director in advertising but I have some translatable skills in UX that have netted me a good amount of student awards - I’m still so early into my career, but I see so much that I want to contribute to in this next advent of human interaction. If anyone has any connections or can chat about this I’d really appreciate it :)

AR and VR design are generally 3D. There would be some 2D work done for interface design like title cards and instructions, but most of the experience design would be done in 3D. Most people I know who do AR//VR design have game design/dev baackgrounds and a lot of experience in 3D modelling and animation. So looking to that space is a start.

There are a lot of courses on Udemy you could check out https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?src=ukw&q=Vr

I’ve been seeing some project management roles in industry that I’d like to apply for, but most of my current projects have been risk and controls based. Would it be a stretch/dishonest to tailor my resume to fit those roles? I think I’d be a good fit and have the core skills for the work. I’d like to become a technical project manager eventually.

What kind of accommodations can I ask for especially since I work from home? I am having an extremely hard time with the pressure and time constraints on getting the work done. I am a very fast pace worker but it’s like I can’t work fast enough here at this new job. And I don’t know what to ask for.

Hi Fishes

I have offer with citi. But I have poor credit history/cibil score. Will citi check credit history too on background check and reject candidate?
I have another offer with TCS which will lapse by tomorrow if I don't agree.
Please share your inputs about citi's background check and which one to choose.

My husband and I recently learned that IVF is our only option for TTC, and we'll need a sperm donor. We've been quite disheartened by the lack of diversity represented in the sperm banks. When you factor in the genetic and CMV considerations and then layer that with a specific race/ethnicity, we are finding very few sperm donors to consider. Are other women/couples of color experiencing the same? Does anyone have recommendations for a sperm bank that might have a more diverse pool of donors?
