We are going to be adding a mid-level team to my group soon. Wondering what experience everyone has had finding a team that already works together. Seems like there would be a lot of pros, especially during zoom times.
Happy Wednesday! I am trying to plan with our AP and climate lead on what we can do in distance learning as a school wide event. I suggested we still host our multicultural club assemblies on zoom for the school. Anyone have experience with zoom assemblies to promote a positive climate in DL? Thanks!
Our first meet up went so well! Join us for our next one!
STUDENT MOTIVATION - Thursday March 31st 8:00pm EST
Are you struggling with motivating your students? Or are you doing things in your room that have kids SUPER INSPIRED? Either way come zoom with other teachers and talk about what you do in your classroom and learn from others!
Hi! Question. How does your company handle the communication between customers and solution engineers during integration? Do you use Slack, Jira, etc? We are using Slack but some customers won’t use Slack so then it’s bleeding over to other forms of communication that are less ideal. I’m starting to wonder if we would be better off doing Jira tickets. 🙃
Almost done with second weeks in industry. I absolutely LOVE IT! Ive been making a point to reach out to people from different teams via Slack and arrange a quick meet and greet zoom call. Been introducing myself mostly to the heads of each department, head of marketing, head of sales, head of product development. to get a better idea of what everyone does, and asked sales/product for walkthroughs of the products so that I know exactly what we offer as a company
Does anyone use Skype for client meetings? I have some out of state clients and I would like to email docs then review face to face if possible.
If a company recruiter says she/he won’t turn on the camera on zoom but i have a choice, is it better to turn on the camera?
The Johnson interview is via Skype. Does anyone know how it works? I booked my interview online and provided my Skype ID but there is no link shared or anything. Do I need to download Skype on my laptop and wait for the interviewer to call me? Or will there be a link to be shared with me close to the interview date?
Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)
Have a coworker who volunteers for work but never ends up doing it. At what point does it make sense to go to the partner to address this? We’re both midlevels, and I’m tired of having to put in even more time every weekend to pick up his slack. If this were a junior, I’d address it with them first, but this is unacceptable from a fifth/sixth year.
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.
Hi all, I am a Enterprise BDR currently at my company and looking for referrals to tech companies such as Slack, Salesforce, Outreach, etc. for AE Roles.
I am the top performer on my team across EMEA, APAC & US, always at 100-300% of target.
I am based in the UK myself. Happy to connect/hop on a call with anyone!
About to give my notice... company is having alternate week (wfh/office) arrangement. is it more appropriate to wait for a f2f convo or do it on zoom? (as an introvert doing it virtually feels more comfortable... but what do u think?) 🤨
How do you deal with a manager who always blame you for actions that the manager instructed me to do in the past? E.g. manager reviews client decks with you and instructs to just note a strict budget to report. After a week, manager rereads the same deck and blames me for not supporting the budget that was added per the manager’s request. We always have this situation, no matter how much I ask for clarity in any internal reviews. I even sent back the emails and slack chats as an attachment.

I was offered a Part Time Physician Case Manager Position (Remote) in Malaysia on 4th November 2022. I was interviewed by your Medical Director (Dr. Christine Louis) via Microsoft teams platform. The whole onboarding process was handled by a senior HR admin from Shanghai.
Subsequently, I was required to sign a contract and provide financial details and ID for onboarding purposes. I have then given Microsoft office sign-in credentials.
Would like to verify the facts and personnel above. TQ!

Neighbor has a surround sound system where the bass is obnoxious, & since my bedroom is the shared wall with their living room, last night I kept getting woken up until 1 AM when they finally turned off their TV. They’ve been polite but a cruddy neighbor (their guest backed into my garage & drove off, and then their water pipe burst seeping into my place & they tried to deny it was them). Should I bother texting “hey, you have an awesome surround sound system. Would it be possible if you turned

Has anyone had any experience with debt collectors? I was sent a letter from a company called convergent claiming they are acting on behalf of a creditor (a bank) that I’ve no interaction with. They are saying they’ll accept 50% of the amount due but there’s no mention of what the debt is. I’m assuming this is a scam but wanted to check with fish here. I have no idea how the letter got sent to me as the address is used only for my Amex cards as I don’t live in the US anymore

Advice please- I have a phone interview for an industry role. Title is a bit ambiguous so I’m not clear what level the role is or what comp range should be. Of course I have questions ready for the interview, but do I ask the recruiter about the comp range in the first interview? I’ve always heard conflicting advice on this. I’m at a point where it’s not worth making a move unless it is a step up & pays significantly more but also don’t want to eliminate myself if there’s room for negotiation.

Did any of you ever found out you were pregnant the week you started in a new firm? How did that turn out
No time to date!
I’m 28 and single. Literally every single one of my female friends in my home country did the smart thing (!!)and settled down early. I just started working in consulting post MBA- I like my job and am so grateful but I work 65 hours a week. I’m afraid of hitting 30 single (in my culture, not being married at 30 is a major issue)
None of the men my age seem to have this issue. 28 is young enough for them and many are able to find partners!
I’m afraid I’ll be an old maiden ugh
Does anyone have a perfectionist spouse? What is / was first time sex like with them? I don’t mind keeping up with the daily perfectionism requirements and understand where it comes from (Enneagram 1) but how does that work out with intimacy?
There is no man I’m interested in. At all. Usually I’m pining over someone or wanting to hook up but idk I just don’t right now. Might be a good thing, but also a sad thing because I love the feeling of a crush :(
Now more than ever discern who is speaking blessings into your life vs sputtering negative beliefs to take hold and manifest in your reality. Don’t allow those who are seeking to manipulate you to get you in a position where you’re performing mental gymnastics to justify having them in your life. You know who you are and how to stand in your truth without anyone else telling you how you are and what is true.
Happy Monday 🤗
You need to be direct. I told my husband that I generally consider the dishes and laundry to be things I “own” and will monitor and deal with when necessary. I asked him to pick the things he will “own” and that’s been working well for us. He now checks and takes out the trash proactively, just needed to be assigned :)
Thanks! I tried assigning him duties but he still won’t do them without being asked. He’s “assigned” trash, sweeping, and dishes after dinner. But the trash won’t get taken out until I complain that it smells or it’s literally overflowing onto the ground and I complain again.
This might be a difference in both of your tolerances for what is “clean”. I would start asking him to do specific tasks in a specific timeframe. And if he gets irritated, have him read this article https://www.huffpost.com/entry/she-divorced-me-i-left-dishes-by-the-sink_b_9055288
Ugh hearing these stories make me rethink about marriage 😔 I’m not marrying a child or a puppy, I’m marrying a spouse with presumably similar level of intellect and life experience. Why do I have to directly instruct him what to do and praise him at the right time? I’d love to do only what’s instructed and get praises for it! And household chores arent evenly cut and pre-instructable, a lot of it is very adhoc.
C1, to give you some hope, my husband evenly splits the mental and physical effort of household chores (and I’m being generous to myself here...he probably does more than I do).
His mom raised 4 sons to help her with cooking, cleaning, laundry, while she worked for the local church and their dad delivered mail. The whole family pitched in and there was no such thing as “woman’s work.”
Just don’t settle. Find the guy who doesn’t drive you to the point of insanity because he can’t operate a vacuum. Also don’t get married too young, let them mature first (source: I got married at 23, divorced at 24, then happily remarried at 28...huge huge huge difference between my mindset and theirs).
Men can be awesome at this so don’t let them tell you otherwise.
This comic changed my whole mindset around this a few years ago. Watching my mom take on the household burden my whole life made me never want to do this (my dad is better now but it has taken decades). sadly, partners don’t always do this automatically, so we have to ask for what we need and establish the good patterns/foundations early!
Men have to be trained like puppies tbh. Reward them immediately when they do something right and be direct with praise.
I can’t deny this one. Good laugh and good tip!
Find a life partner that is a responsible, caring adult?
Get a cleaning service! This has made a huge difference in alleviating a lot of the burden/stress. Worth it!
My hubby is the same way- and “project managing” him is another full time job! So him relying on you to ask him to do things is not fair to you either.
GT1-I agree- a messy house is a symptom, not the root cause. But control what you can. Even the best advice on here will not change her man overnight. But hiring a cleaning service will alleviate some headache, mental space, and time to work on those behaviors that could improve instead of compounding it (and nagging/fighting/sounding like a broken record)
I think there are a lot of ways to deal with this. I struggle with it too! My partner and I had a big fight about vacuuming (so silly) last summer and decided we’d put on our calendars to clean our apartment every 2 weeks. We split cleaning duties: I clean the bathroom, he does vacuuming and the kitchen and other rooms. A few days ago, I brought up that I was frustrated I do the laundry every weekend and he doesn’t think about it. So tomorrow we are having a conversation to plan a laundry schedule. He shared with me that he does better on a schedule, so this will work for him.
I know my partner doesn’t proactively think about household chores like I do, which means I end up with the heavier burden, which I’m super sensitive to. I suggest sharing with your partner how you’re feeling and seeing what division of labor works best and what you’ll both feel most comfortable with in terms of being accountable to your “duties”. Good luck, OP! I’m sure he’ll be understanding :)
I am not a big cleaner either but setting a half day that we really do it in a deep way does help. We know every other sat morning we are doing this and knowing that time is set aside where we both are doing that and that alone helps me. If he is a procrastinator on chores (like me) and doesn’t per se value them (like me) this could help. But he has to agree to it, can’t be something you impose on him. Requires his consent and buy in.
One thing I noticed w how you’ve worded all your other attempts is “I did x, I put it on his cal” etc. If he didn’t explicitly agree to that form of task management and sit and discuss the overall strategy w you in cleaning, those things could feel bossy and like something put on him. You guys need to have a big strategy discussion about this and whatever you decide to do regarding project management needs to be something you both explicitly and clearly buy into
I was in the exact situation as you, where I cooked, cleaned dishes and worked long hours as a consultant. While my man works in industry and didn’t think we were as uneven with chores as I thought we were. I tried everything - nagging, calendar reminders, logging hrs I spent doing chores, etc. Nothing changed and this went on for years, we moved out at 25 and now we are 30. NOW THINGS HAVE FINALLY CHANGED. It could be bc we’re older now, but I noticed he started doing way more around the house when we did the love languages test (or Love Nudge App). He found out that I value acts of service the most. Of all the things I did, for some reason him knowing what my love language is, finally got him to do chores just as equally as me 🥰
I’m feeling super grateful for my partner right now who is very helpful. We split things up - I do grocery, laundry, light cleaning, unload dishwasher, admin. All things I don’t hate. But I hate cooking, trash and scrubbing pots and pans so he does that. We hire a cleaning service monthly. If I do need him to do extra, I make him a chore list :)
[continued] Left out until he hears me struggling to put it away myself. You get the picture. I tried making a chore list, which he conveniently forgets to look at. I tried putting cal events/reminders in his phone, which pile up unread. I HATE living in a messy place but don’t want to get in habit of doing ALL the chores in sight. But if I don’t do it, who knows when it’ll get done. I also do the cooking, cleaning bathroom, & grocery shopping. Growing up I hated watching my dad sit on the couch watching football while my mom would sweat cooking for us and cleaning with no time to herself. I don’t what that to be my life down the line.
He takes initiative when it directly benefits him but not for our household.
(Late 20s living together for about a year now)
“I need help with chores around the house, if you don’t feel up to helping, let’s discuss getting a cleaning/laundry service”
I think some people genuinely do not see that things need to get done. My partner is the same- it’s not that he can’t see the clothes it’s he doesn’t connect the dots to think they don’t fold themselves. So he doesn’t mind I ask him in a matter of fact way to do things. If I wait til I’m all pumped up and angry cos I’ve been waiting for him to do things then I end up yelling and we don’t communicate and its a lose lose for everyone. Second the suggestions here- assign him the task and make him own it, or you accept he doesn’t see it and agree a way to communicate with him so you don’t feel like you’re nagging and he feels useful (you still have to bear the mental load but hey baby steps).
“If you don’t do it, it isn’t that it wouldn’t be done, it’s that I do it. How would you feel if I treated you this way?”
omg I'm having the same issues with my boyfriend and it's driving me crazy !!!!
Put the laundry on his bed or hanging over the TV screen... his immaturity calls for being passive aggressive 😬😬😬. Basically put it somewhere where it interferes with him doing whatever activity he wants to be doing.
He moves to another location? Pick up that pile and put it there. If he says "you know you could have just asked me to do it." You say, "what do you think I've been doing for the past year - you act like a child i will treat you like a child."
My personal opinion, you are making it way too easy for him to not do it.
I agree... I'd personally move on if you can't figure out what your partner brings to the relationship!
