Like most of the agencies, we were operating in a high touch environment with our clients to grow business. And in 2020 everyone understood the need to operate remotely and focused on getting the work done. However a lot of sales/opportunities for growth were discovered in informal coffee/lunch sessions with clients. I wonder how are all of you engaging with clients in a remote set up. Would love to hear everyone’s experiences..
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Got the blood test, I have the antibodies. My company is WFH through next year. I hate WFH. I am considering renting a WeWork spot, simply to go through the actions of going to work and coming home from work. Is this a crazy idea?
Hi all, I’m looking for recommendations of tech/ automotive companies that allow working fully remote. I’d really like to move out of my current company but can’t do so for the next two years because my spouse is going to school here.

Groundhog Day - WFH edition
👋🏼 A little WFH cuteness
Started a new gig over a month ago and was very excited to work with my new partner but they haven’t been too welcoming, projects have not been collaborative (just me doing it and emailing it to them), they don’t really reply to my messages about work (started remote) and doesn’t really reply to any creative inspiration that I send to break ice. Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?
Anyone starting at Deloitte in the next week or two? Wondering how it will work given wfh
Suggestions on how to effectively tell a roommate we’re both WFH in a small space? Mine was gone for 3 months (bliss!) & is now back, calls/music on speaker in the living room and generally just takes over any free space. I have a desk in my room, but it’s tight so the living room used to be my reprieve to take a break. I ask for help on messaging because I can be a little too blunt which doesn’t go over well for some 😬
Anyone else struggling with wfh during busy season? I have no way to understand productivity relative to other new hires and feel like i am under utilized

When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Just started a new job where I’m being trained by two people 1 promotion / 1-2 years of experience above me - both men. I certainly have a lot to learn in this role, but they don’t seem to...

CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
Salary of a L4 employee in Amazon Singapore
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!

I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
