Seems like it depends on what industry you serve. I’ve been taking my cue from clients and dressing slightly nicer if meeting new ones.

What I have seen is put together semi casual. No blazers.

In my firm honestly whatever they want. I feel like I’ve been given more of a leeway after seeing what some of the female partners feel comfortable and confident. In front of zoom

We don’t do video calls with our clients, just internally, and the senior managers and partners typically wear a shirt and cardigan if it’s colder or a short sleeve blouse

Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!

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?

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
