Pro tip: start a Zoom meeting with yourself so your status changes and nobody bothers you for a bit.
Need some advice... I started at a new agency recently. Almost immediately upon meeting one of my male colleagues (over zoom) I felt this attraction and genuine connection. Context: he’s 11 years older than me but both of us are single, never been married, no kids, etc. he’s not my boss and we don’t technically work together on projects. I want to get to know him better but don’t really know how to approach the situation (or if I even should) without it being inappropriate or awkward. Thoughts?
New to the job and I’m finding it impossible to speak up in Zoom brainstorm sessions. I don’t know what’s wrong but my anxiety flies through the roof when we get on and I can’t get myself to speak for the entire session. I feel like my peers are hyper aware of it, which only makes me more anxious. Does this happen to anyone else?
Birthday ideas: My SO and I are planning on a Zoom virtual birthday party for our 1 year old next month. We are thinking of sending out an Evite this week but have 0 ideas for the party. Any suggestions? Thank you!
1 month long enough for Italy, Greece, and Turkey? Contemplating taking 2 months, but I found a first class ticket on my miles. I guess I could break the trip up and go back. Something is bound to go wrong at work, but everything is via internet and zoom now.
Slack is like the significant other that leaves you and you realize just how much they meant to you...

Canceling Zoom sessions is kinda like taking a day off without all the headaches. We're hybrid and the kids are not showing up ( virtual or in person). Still have to be on campus. Canceled Zoom yesterday and today. Feels like a real work day without all the extra BS. Got a ton of stuff done and no fistfights over the copy machines.
Can you please share any software your firm uses that you find helpful? Including any add-ons to Microsoft office (for example: excel power query for indexing folders). Also, do you use any internal messaging system (maybe something like slack)? Thanks!

Are Zoom's privacy issues a threat to their growth or market performance? I think they could easily get this out of headlines, most people are too busy worrying about 'rona to push on this

Hello fish. Looking for healthcare industry roles in Houston or Dallas. Currently a strategy consultant with experience in the payer and government programs (Medicare, Medicaid, vbc) space.

I have two friends working as Associate at McKinsey willing to refer me. One is a close friend, former case partner, working at the office I want to join, and is very likely to give me a strong referral but he just joined the firm 2 months ago. Another friend is not super close but gave me a PEI mock before, she works at a different office (one of the biggest US offices) for abt 2 years, to be promoted to EM soon. She seems to be pretty involved in recruiting. Which one should I go for? Thank u!

I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience.

How do you explain to you SO the role of billable hours? I feel like a broken record talking about how BIg law and in general the legal profession is very different, but my SO doesn’t seem to get the stress. Loves my paycheck for sure, but doesn’t get that to move up in our profession that you have to put the “time” in and that some of that isn’t just the 1900 requirement. It’s getting very frustrating.
Excused myself from work today with COVID symptoms and took a test. My wife works full time & is on her own with our 3 month old until I get a negative test result... keeping it under wraps in hopes I’m not positive. No question here, but shit just got real.
