Hi, everyone. I searched and didn’t see a relevant post. Is it best practice to have your video on during an entire 5-hour CLE on Zoom? Very much hoping not- if not, is there like a % that I should have it on?
Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?
Just had a client FaceTime me to present because her Skype wasn’t working...that’s a new one.
I thought I was cute and adorable until I saw myself on zoom every moment of the day. I now know I a so average 😒
O.M.G! My co-worker texts me about my boss (annoying person). I responded via Skype and vented, BUT I sent the message to my boss! The name was above my friend's!!
So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.
I’m… too sexy for this slide, too sexy for this ping, too sexy for this zoom, too sexy for this email, too sexy for these edits yeah yeah… I’m too sexy for this pitch, too sexy for this manager, too sexy for this BD, too sexy for this firm, yeah yeah…
Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭

If I did an internship, should I remove it on LinkedIn to help recruiters? Because if recruiters just look at YOE, would they screen me out when looking at my dates being 1yr too long for my title?

How does the new rule impact on amendment? Big 4 has promotion typically every year and which require amendments. Do you think this will effect current H1 holder?
How much do titles matter? Finally made the jump to ACD, except I’m brand-side and the company calls it a Creative Lead. I’m thrilled to receive the promotion and take on the responsibility. But at the same time I imagine my agency peers thinking “wtf even is a creative lead?”
Does anyone have any input regarding Wilson Elser? I just got an offer there that is slightly higher than the ID firm I currently work for (typically referred to as Florida’s defense mill). Because the offer isn’t much higher than my current salary, I’m really on the fence. I was also looking for a more recognized firm that allows for better work-life balance. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Having an off day already and wondering how so many people seem to be able to keep it all together so easily. I have friends and family that just handle everything with such grace and never seem to drop the ball or have to scramble to find time or energy to put into all of their priorities/obligations. Why is it so hard for me to even remember to schedule regular maintenance things for house/car/health, etc.? Maybe this career is just draining my cognitive capacity. I'm so tired.
several interview rounds. Positive (glowing) feedback all around. Im then told "they" just need to check w/the CEO...a short time later "sorry, we've decided to go in a different direction"...
Just learned from a colleague that they were selected for GS-13 off the street without an interview. Is this common?
One week into kindergarten, already scheduling my first PCR for a sick kid. Buckle up, I guess?
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
Any product managers here? I'm currently pursuing master's in engineering management from Northeastern University. I have 2 years of work exp as a consultant, have managed a team of 5 and built a couple of products! I'm looking for an internship in Product management. Can someone refer? Thank you!
I switched jobs and I’m stuck doing boring, tactical briefs that don’t require real strategic thinking. I love qual research and connecting the dots with things happening in culture. Anyone have any leads on strategist/senior strategist jobs in NY that I can escape to before I become a hack?
