Trying to not obsessively check back on this channel in the Booth slack (I’m joined as an SO)
If [said company] asks to put you "on hold" for the month of December...but you found a better offer, do you: -have to follow through with said gig -communicate this with them if they haven't followed up yet (but added you to new slack channels) (asking because I no longer wish to work with them) Thanks for the advice.
Keep your dogs from hopping into your Zoom calls. . . . . When I see that, I want to see more of the dog and less of the meeting. Also, it reminds me that I want a dog but my apartment won’t allow it. So it bums me out.
Do you a wear metal bracelet watch while working from home or during zoom calls? I notice my keyboard is scratching it badly. Any tips for preventing this?

SOBER IN ADVERTISING ZOOM MEETING: When: Wednesday’s, 7-8 PM EST Where: Zoom | Meeting ID: 690 936 1783 ￼ Hi everyone, I made our zoom account and am planning to schedule our meeting Wednesday’s from 7-8 PM EST. If we would prefer a different time, format etc we can change it but just trying to get some forward momentum on this! Hope to see everyone there!
When you ask an anonymous question on zoom, it’s anonymous to the hosts/leaders too right?
Any idea what FB recruiters use for initial calls? Zoom, Teams, WebEx (god forbid), or just old school phone call?
Happy (zoom) Passover for everyone celebrating!
Birthday ideas: My SO and I are planning on a Zoom virtual birthday party for our 1 year old next month. We are thinking of sending out an Evite this week but have 0 ideas for the party. Any suggestions? Thank you!
Anybody trying to be my Spanish speaking partner? Looking for anyone. If multiple people want to we can do a group thing where we’re all on zoom just speaking in Spanish too. I’m a beginner... M - Black - 25 - 7.439 (scale 1 to 10 on looks) - 7.440 (scale 1 to 10 on comedic level) - great listener - I have my dumb days like very very dumb 😅
Can you please share any software your firm uses that you find helpful? Including any add-ons to Microsoft office (for example: excel power query for indexing folders). Also, do you use any internal messaging system (maybe something like slack)? Thanks!
Unpopular opinion: drinking games over Zoom are cringe. That goes for Zoom happy hours too.
1. I’m a pandemic hire at this new agency and I like it enough, but I feel SO detached from all these humans I’ve never interacted with IRL… like, I just don’t give a flying fuck about these team-building zoom calls. :( 2. My boyfriend and I often just go off cam / mute during the more useless meetings and have sex instead. I secretly hope everyone who is muted/cam off in meetings is getting some action.
No matter if you love or hate zoom, I have noticed being “face to face” has been a good forcing function to keep me motivated about my appearance and “getting ready for work”. My P likes camera on
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂

Single Moms. How do you do it? How much do you spend on your child, especially if you have to work long hours quite a lot?
Have a little over 5 YOE & several manager level roles with experience in change management, SaaS, technology implementations, Salesforce, healthcare. Making $135k now - what roles can I look for with this experience / a pay bump?

I'm a Registered Nurse who's been working as a sales professional for the last 11yrs. Ironically, none of the sales jobs I've been recruited for have been in healthcare. They've all been in the industrial setting (O&G, Chemicals, etc). I just moved across the country for my husband's job, and the new job I found is terrible. I'm looking to get back to my roots in healthcare and apply my sales experience to that sector, but I'm not getting any calls back for this sector. What am I doing wrong?
Is the role of a project manager going away, my clients are moving to Agile and the new product teams don't have a project manager role.
What are the SM roles like in EY performance improvement advisory? Is it delivery + business dev or mostly POV, thought leadership, project Mgmt ? Is it a good culture/environment? Thanks
Has anyone changed employers in the same year as taking parental leave? Planning to actively look elsewhere, starting in June. However, we are expecting our first child in December.
Is referral necessary to get into PE practice at McKinsey or BCG. Heard that referrals are not a thing at McKinsey and BCG London office. Can anyone please confirm?

Any senior level writers looking for a job in LA? have a lead on a gig that requires a team. Message me with your book if so.
Moms with 3+ kids - what changed from 2 to 3+? We just found out the third is on the way, and while I'm thrilled, I want to make sure we set up for success. Husband also works full time so we have a full time nanny, but is 3 too much for one person? One will be in full time school by the time baby arrives. Anything you wish you had been prepared for or done differently?
Thinking about moving from my EB to a BB (usual reasons). Any thoughts from the associate on up crowd on this career decision?
Hi Fish, I'm a functional SA at my current gig. May be looking to entertain the typical recruiter knocking at the door every 3 months or so asking if I am looking to make a move. Current comp is ~140K, soft-HCOL area. Any advice on open roles that either you enjoy or would recommend applying for at the mothership? TIA
Is it bad news that I submitted my NYU Stern app as part of round 1 and still haven’t heard on an interview yet? I’ve heard back from all other schools.
Which firm benefits/insurance should I enroll and skip? Will elect HSA and firm-paid disability insurance. How about employee critical illness insurance or long term care plan?
