My manager keeps pushing me to insert myself earlier in the projects to be more conceptual, & I try, but I’m still being brought in late, without basic context from CDs. He says he can talk to them but it’s better if I do. He says he’s always available for support, but when I reach out, he’s impossible to reach. I can’t grow & get promoted without space and support from my team & I don’t want be too aggressive & have that negatively impact how my teammates see me. I feel stuck, any advice?

I shared the wrong screen in a meeting with 1 direct report (Director) and 1 of his direct reports (Sr Manager) 😱. I have 2 screens and Zoom chose the one not in front of me and I had no idea. The screen had my to do list on it and number 1 was “send resume to x” (name of recruoter and company was there). About 3 seconds after I shared the Director said “I think you’re sharing your to do list” and I immediately closed it. I have to assume they saw everything. What do I do?

id be way more excited to get an amazon gift card than a knick knack that i wouldnt use
I love getting Amazon gift cards. Definitely goes to good use even if it’s mostly contributing to a diaper fund right now
it’s definitely boring but it’s also something that the recipient can definitely put to use
Yes. It’s boring. Who is the receiver?
No - functional gifts are my favorite.
No I much prefer practical gifts
Boring but good. Amazon spending without the guilt.
Boring but good. Always happy to receive something like that!
It depends on the recipient. My daughter’s teachers like them and we are not super close so they don’t expect something personal. But I wouldn’t get one for someone I’m close with unless I knew they had stuff they were dreaming about in their cart.
I love it! Amazon gift cards are the best!
