Have officially deleted all my dating apps. I see I am not the only one who has. Would anyone be interested in a singles happy hour via Zoom at some point? Maybe invite friends? Me: From SF (CA) Female, 5’9, very active and fun, have 2 dogs
Any suggestions for virtual happy hour - scotch, wine, cocktail, mocktail tasting (vendors, logistics, rough pricing etc.)? Location: US, Canada
It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
Looking for referrals on affordable, competent TPAs for SoloKs over $250k and traditional unbundled 401ks. Looking for Illinois and SoCal, but if they are good I don't care where they are located, if they can do Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀
We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
What applications does Accenture use? I’m guessing Microsoft Teams, Excel, Pwpt? Or is Zoom also in that?
I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?
Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!
You know what grinds my gears? When SM or above still don't know how to send a Skype call properly and make you type everything in manually... for a daily call, over the next year 😑😑

Hi folks! I am new to interviewing. Any tips on how to prepare for an initial phone interview with a recruiter for a position I applied for? What kind of questions should I be expecting? Thanks !
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?

Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house?
