Okay just sharing something that made me happy today..
In a DM convo w a male coworker, he used a winky face (cultural differences, don’t think he meant to make me uncomfortable)
I vented about it in my WIT slack at work that it feels icky when older men use 😉, especially in DMs
My boss (a woman) reached out privately and asked if she needed to step in and make me more comfortable. I didn’t need it, but knowing she’s got my back was amazing. Women leaders make me feel 😍😌
So, I interviewed today (4 people on Zoom), and the assistant principal was asleep!😴🤷♀️ It’s not the worst I’ve experienced during an interview, but it still threw me off 😳
My best friend is getting married & we cancelled the bachelorette party. Does anyone have fun ideas for a Zoom party? Trying to still give her a fun experience in spite of the circumstances.
Any of you struggling with maskne? Mine keeps getting worse :’(
I know I shouldn’t wear makeup underneath my mask but I have f2f (mask on) and zoom lessons (mask off) everyday so I kind of have to put on a bit of concealer otherwise I’m going to cry in front of my students!
I am interviewing for an in-house counsel position at a large corporation. I have four 30-minute (and back to back) Zoom interviews set up with various executives at the company (one being the GC to whom the position reports). Does anyone have any advice on how to prepare and what to expect?
What is the best / typical way to call from India to US landlines? Going to India after a while and would require calling a few folks on business who are not on WhatsApp / Skype.
Hey art friends, I’m a special needs teacher who also loves to teach art in my class. I’m trying to get familiar with the app Procreate. I’m having an issue with trying to copy and paste a selection from my design. It keeps saying empty layer. I would love to do a Zoom with someone who would be willing to show me how to do it. Thanks so much.
Curious what firms are doing to keep people socializing during COVID. I miss my coworkers but I'm sick of zoom calls.

My therapist during future retirement puzzled why I have PTSD from just corporate America: “How were you able to express frustrations and your emotion during your job in a healthy way?”
Me: “Slack only offered so many negative emojis.”

I’d love to hear how you are going about it. We are not allowing visitors in the school this year so it’s all virtual. Thanks for your reply’s.
Generally curious how many companies offer phone reimbursement? My last gig did not but the current one does. Legally it seems, all employers are required to do so if we use our phone in literally any capacity (video call, slack, teams, emails etc). How prevalent is the issue of not reimbursing phone dues?

Note taking tips? I am SO bad at taking notes and remembering tasks. I have ADHD and have always struggled but for some reason it got worse in a job versus college. Does anyone know of good note taking tools? There are a few AIs that I have dabbled with for processing transcripts. Anything ideas for automated note taking and task tracker for zoom meetings? Not just a transcription tool.

If you’re worried about your students because they were online all year please check out my resource. I was a first grade teacher last year online and a doctorate student. I could tell the kids would need some SEL to transition back! Filled with guiding questions and a sequencing activity. Very helpful to teach empathy to those students who were not online as well 💕. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n9jcRsJ8NGc&feature=youtu.be. https://www.amazon.com/Follow-Distance-Learning-Agnieszka-Petlik/dp/1637103956/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=follow+me+to+distance+learning&qid=1628036547&sprefix=follow+me+to+distance&sr=8-3. https://cea.org/simsbury-teacher-writes-book-to-help-students-understand-experience-of-remote-learning/

I feel like a lot of women in the industry waits to have a baby till later on in their 30’s or not at all. Is there anyone here who found themselves in the pregnancy pool earlier in life and had maintained their roles/ advanced in their jobs? How was it and any advice??

Hey everyone! I recently graduated this past December and started my current role January 24th. Just this morning I had a recruiter from Meta reach back out to me about a role I applied too last month. Should i schedule an interview with the recruiter? What if it goes well? Would it look bad if I quit my current position to take this role if I end up getting an offer? One reason I would want to switch is because the pay would most likely be a lot higher at Meta then in my current position.
Currently a Solutions Consultant at Pegasystems.
I am interviewing at and considering making a jump to Oracle as a Specialist Solutions Consultant.
The reason for my move is currently at Pega SCs are treated more as AEs or Account Managers. The role at Oracle would be more of a true SC position. I also feel that Oracle will look BETTER on a resume and someone as young as me would have BETTER programs in place to train me and give me the foundation needed to be a successful SC.
Does anyone at Google know if there are SE roles based in UK specifically for GCP (App Dev side i.e. cloud run, firebase, etc)? What is the official title?

Any SE's here currently at Snowflake? I'm about to start an interview process with them (already had a phone screen with the hiring manager). I'd love to get some insight into the day to day of SEs there, especially on the enterprise team. I'm a former Oracle SE with experience in data management and analytics and I'm currently at a small SaaS company helping build out the pre-sales function as the second hire (because the first got whisked away to product management after 8 months haha).
Pay progression from SE to management? Was wondering what a typical SE manager makes because it’s hard to find.
Anyone report to sales line of management? I've always reported through solutions, I'm interviewing and curious what your experience has been. I'm been interviewing and the pre sales roles report to sales which hasn't been the best experience for me in past.
Hey, I am appearing for a pre-sales engineer interview. It will be a sort of role-play demo session, where the team will want to understand how I present, how I manage a room, how I keep my audience engaged and also your technical abilities when asked regarding the solution. I have a liberty to choose any data science related product. I am essentially confused as to what product to choose, and how to structure the presentation. I would highly appreciate tips and suggestions. Thanks
Hey everyone, French here. I’ve been coding for my all life (10-15 years) and have 6 YEO professionally (without internships). I feel like to move on in my career by upgrading to a SE/SA path. I always love problem solving and I am obsessed with detail. I don’t have any opportunity in my current company, so I am wondering where I should start to make the transition. What skills do I need? I feel like needing more responsibilities and having a valuable job.
Also, any ref?
