Heads up. The Bar just emailed out invitations for two free online CLEs in the first week of may. I've been doing these Zoom courses as they are offered and it's going to significantly reduce my end of the year stress.
Has anyone moved their community from Slack to Discord or vice versa? What made you switch?
Hi there! Anyone have advice for dealing with a toxic team? Management is very sparse and attrition is high.. I’m leaning towards finding a new job because I’m getting nightmares about Zoom calls and work emails.
After building up the members, we can arrange a Zoom speed dating call! Open to other ideas as well on how to use this for people looking to date
Teaching Autistic Support via Zoom is so difficult. The behaviors are way worse and there is next to nothing I can do to help my students parents.
I just finished a presentation as the final step of an interview process (after 9 interviews). I think it went pretty well, but presenting on Zoom is weird when you can’t see everyone’s facial expressions while sharing slides. Fingers crossed!
Anyone else interviewing right now? I’d love to offer support to someone else going through this.
Hey folks. Still can’t meet up IRL, but the NYC Advertising & Junior Creatives bowls are hosting a Q+A today at 5 PM. 2 CDs will discuss their experiences in the industry during previous recessions. Details, Zoom link and cal invites here: https://joinfishbowl.com/post_lcfeyb

Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.
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?
Resource: If you're looking to find your people in different roles or niches of tech, Slofile.com can help you find a Slack community specific to your interests. Some communities have job boards and networking opportunities also.
Has anyone seen any unique places to find UX portfolios or post jobs other than the usual suspects?
Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went. Even the portfolio sites like Dribbble and Behance don’t seem that same.
Generally curious how many companies offer phone reimbursement? My last gig did not but the current one does. Legally it seems, all employers are required to do so if we use our phone in literally any capacity (video call, slack, teams, emails etc). How prevalent is the issue of not reimbursing phone dues?
I’ve worked at places that all have different holiday policies. EA has at minimum a nice 10 day shutdown from Christmas Eve through New Years. It’s great to know that there will be no slack messages or an exploded inbox to come back to while away. I’ve been at other studios that only give you Christmas Eve & Day and New Years Eve & Day and then the rest is up to you to request for PTO and this is obviously the suck.
Wonder what it’s like for you?

Question about changing careers to be a therapist:
I’m in my mid-30s and currently in HR, which I don’t enjoy. I live in a HCOL (Los Angeles) and make about $100k per year currently. I don’t have any kids so I live comfortably on that. I’ve been considering going back to school to become a therapist, and I was recently laid off so I’m thinking about doing it now (instead of finding another HR job and waiting). (Continued…)

DO YOU JUST ASSUME THE COST OF YOUR MARKETING ACTIVITIES? I am looking to allocate their cost in the marketing budget in a way that won't rely on several layers of assumptions. How do you reliably estimate the cost of different marketing activities (email, social, web, etc) when you don't have specific people or tools allocated to each function and costs are spread across many channels? Ads seems the easiest, but even then there's time and overheads... I've been looking for a reliable model.
