Somedays, its just hard to find that energy to motivate my team! I am exhausted, disappointed, and wounded from dealing with big boys club day in and day out, and then to find that inspiration to get my reports and team going!!! Brutal... and to add to the fact that HR comes back asking that the team be more engaged! We are working longer than ever, zoom fatigue is real, and timelines inflexible....
Hey Fellow Job Board Fish, Your bowl leader here. I am looking to create a discussion panel / zoom event for this group and would love to hear your input. What topics would you like to discuss? What questions do you have? Who would you like to chat with (I.e. recruiters, creative leaders, etc.)? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
How many active channels are on your slack? I have around 50 separated by internal topics, discussions of particular account or specific project. I just had a discussion with someone who thinks it's too much and needs to be optimized more. I kind of like that I have a separate channel for separate topic. What do you think?
Real talk though, who’s investing in a green screen for their zoom calls? I’m debating if it’s worth the $30!
Ting tong, the door bell rang in middle of Zoom call. Leader (top dog) stood up only to realise his fancy lungi flashed on the screen. An awkward smile followed. Any Zoom fails (fun) you witnessed recently?
Does anyone have translated instructions for Zoom in Spanish or other languages? I have a few students who haven't participated yet because they don't know how to use Zoom.
How are parents keeping 5-6 yr old kids entertained. My kid is watching tv for 2-3 hrs each day and not at all participating in study. Kiddo is bored talking with classmates and friends, building legos and toys. Even school opens i doubt this age group really have patience to be on zoom calls. Looking for ways to keep kid busy other than digital media.
For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
In the spirit of supporting Black owned businesses: if anyone has recommendations for a Black personal trainer who can work with me via Zoom/virtually and knock my fat ass back into shape, please let me know! Prefer those who may have lost their jobs due to COVID 19. TIA! 🙏😊
Wanted to work from home today but my manager told me otherwise. No good reason other than needing me at her side as she reviews work. I guess phones, Instant message, and webex aren't enough!
Do participants see notifications when you share a specific window in zoom, not your screen? Asking for a friend who forgot to turn on do not disturb and maybe got a questionable text during a presentation to a client.
Had a great phone interview about a week ago (on a Friday). Next step was setting up a Skype interview as I’m not currently in the city. Followed up Friday and chased mid week but nothing - advice?
ZOOM QUESTION if I’m sharing my screen and playing a video how do I get the audio to play? Right now it will play on my screen but others in the meeting can’t hear it.
Just FYI Roy Underhill (PBS’ The Woodwright’s Shop) is doing a series of Zoom sessions. It’s only a $10 donation to the Woodwright’s School Educational Fund. www.woodwrightschool.com
Soooo zoom call small talk starter for tmrw is no longer about the weather and now about potus contracting Covid amirite?

Anyone know what LinkedIn Bizops Associate role with 3 years of experience should be getting? Just want to know if my offer will be competitive - deeds coming along
Been a nice shoes with dress pants and no tie kinda guy since I started 8 years ago, thinking about going full suit daily. What do you guys do and if you’re a full suit everyday FA how many do you own?
Matched with a nice guy on bumble and he’s texting me constantly but we can’t meet until next week since he’s traveling. I’m not super into him physically but giving it a fair shot (cont)
If you worked for a small med device company and were tasked with creating a partnership with a health insurer, how would you go about pursuing a partnership, and how would you analyze/evaluate it?

NYC folks who own a coop - how is the new tax law impacting your ability to deduct maintenance fees?
At what age is a good time to have babies? Is late 30s too late? I'm in my early 30s and was wondering how long more I can wait since I don't feel like having kids now.
Investing Discussion: FTI Consulting (NYSE: FCN). With such a large portion of its countercyclical revenue directly related to turnaround and restructuring work, and with waning stimulus talks, I’m anticipating a full pipeline of bankruptcy clients for FTI for the foreseeable future. In addition, with the likely rise in cap gains taxes with a democratic win, M&A-related work is likely to take off toward year end. Why is this stock not taking off?
