Does anyone have advice about helping your kids through video conferencing anxiety? My 6 year old normally loves taking, happily volunteers to speak at school assemblies is completely freaked out by classroom zoom discussions. Says that “talking on a computer is weird” and he’s anxious to the point of tears.
I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.
Anyone who had a strict dress code in your office or on client site - what do you wear on zoom now? Does no one care, or do you still have to dress up somewhat?
Desi 🐟 who went the arranged marriage route - how did you vibe with someone without meeting in person? Talking to this girl over the phone/Skype but struggling to relate/connect with her. Any tips/recos ?
EY on friday: from now on, Skype will no longer log in automatically. Use teams. Monday: partner does a f/u meeting on Skype.
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
Any recommendations for affordable zoom camera?
Anyone interested in a virtual networking event via zoom? Could help expand our network during this disruptive time - thoughts?
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

New to recovery and had an intake call with an IOP program. They said all sessions will be on Zoom and I’m really nervous that I won’t connect to the program virtually. Anyone start rehab virtually?
I’m going to start doing read alouds on Zoom for the students. Any recommendations for upper elemetary? Maybe something uplifting to help battle the anxiety they might be feeling?
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
Hey I’m going through the interview process with a few consulting firms and am looking to get more practice. Does anyone have a pdf of a case book they can share? Also, if anyone else is interviewing and wants to run a few practice cases over Zoom let me know!
Have to rework my book. How many of you would caught a junior copywriter candidate some slack on art direction?

Big 4 FDD > MBA?
Does anyone have any insight into how easy it is to jump from one omnicom agency to another, via applying internally?
Need your suggestion- A = Base,B= Target bonus ( we all know what that means) Current comp = A + B + standard benefits + 90% travel New offer Current comp + 13k + standard benefits + 100% WFH Good?
If your team is working from home, do you check their Skype and ping them every now and then to make sure they are not leaving their desk? I don’t like it when people are not immediately available.
I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️
In what case it is recommended to get an MBA?
I have an industry offer and some flexibility kn start dates. Should I take 2 weeks of vacation then quit OR quit and enjoy a 2 week break before the new job? What are the trade offs to consider?

Applied to a couple product manager positions with companies I was very excited about. Received rejection emails from 2 within a couple days of applying. Any advice? Would you re-apply via a different channel? Try to connect with people who work there on LinkedIn? Just feels like the door got slammed in my face without anyone peeking through the peephole.
Will Deloitte usi follow wfh post covid?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
