I teach U.S. History/Gov., OK History, World History, & Economics in high school. What are some of your favorite teaching strategies that help make your subjects area more enjoyable and engaging?
Ever dread producing a project? My partner and I sold through a campaign that has changed so much from rounds of revisions that there's barely an idea in there anymore.
Can I tug on someone’s ear about the interview process with ThoughtWorks? We’re currently flirting with each other.
A wonderful friend recommended me to a recruiter. This role is at a small agency, I’m going to be paired with a Sr. Copywriter. They’re looking for a conceptual thinker and brilliant designer, no pressure. I have some internships and some freelance under my belt since graduating portfolio school, and a current laptop that’s running on fumes ha. I’m intimidated (wfh. sr writer.new guy.small agency.workload), and super grateful to finally hear from someone. Any words of wisdom?
Anyone else having trouble staying focused while working from home? I’m in a tiny apartment in NYC and with my husband and I both being here 24/7 I am feeling very trapped and never get any meaningful alone time, which I need. He normally travels a bit for work, so this is really different for us. My focus is shot, I’m terrified of getting laid off and yet am having trouble motivating myself. Any advice? Anxiety through the roof too.
I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘
Hi! Anyone know what type of comp could be expected for an A3 or SA1 in L&D? Tier 2 city. Thank you!
How long are H4 and EADs take time to get approved? My H1B transfer to a new company got approved in 10 days, based on PP. But no updates on H4 and EAD, what are the timelines? Did anyone on H4 go for a biometrics interview in the last 3 months? or do they pull your old biometrics and use them in this current scenario?
I’ve never been unintelligent, but does anyone else feel manipulated to think so by leadership? It almost feels like a sick game how leadership talks down to AEs...
What do we think of NATO and the benefits thereon. It seems to me that we are spending all the money - and supporting the military might of NATO - The European counties do no want to spend on defense.
Considering a role at AWS advisory within proserve ... principal level .. thoughts on role? Level? Comp? Help!
Are TPMs at FAANG respected? Is it rewarding to be in that role over consulting, or is it frustrating due to being treated as inferior to SWEs?
This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
How quickly did you have your 2nd baby? We just had our first and wanted to plan for second next year (get it done!) but OB said should wait at least 18months before trying again :(
Vent: it’s really messed up to have recruiters reach out pretending they have a role for you then prying for industry contacts. I’m truly disgusted, don’t pretend to have a role for me then pry for business.
All this stuff with Kapernick and taking a knee and all that has got me wondering if we could participate in "corporate disobedience" to protest our agencies' lack of diversity.
How do I become Secretary of Education? I've done education consulting, and will be moving to PE in the education space. Plan is to go to get M7 MBA and Education PhD... but then what?
If we did a scientific study on the impact of the quarantine, re: mental health outcomes (depression, suicide, domestic abuse, overdoses, etc), we need to take into account the improved outcomes....
