Happy Wednesday! I am trying to plan with our AP and climate lead on what we can do in distance learning as a school wide event. I suggested we still host our multicultural club assemblies on zoom for the school. Anyone have experience with zoom assemblies to promote a positive climate in DL? Thanks!
Any Slack SEs here? I’m in conversation with a Slack recruiter for an SE role. Curious how competitive the market is with Microsoft basically offering MS Teams for free and the pandemic starting to wind down. I see most cool startups have Slack and bigger enterprises have been getting swooped up by MS Teams because of cheaper pricing and not needing to buy Zoom. I personally like Slack more but how are current market conditions and how are y’all feeling? Slack Salesforce

Weird idea. Is there a way we could set up like a virtual work room? Like one where we're logged onto something like skype/messenger/Google meet/zoom/ZooRoom/Discord or something where we can all be working at night time, but at least not alone. It would mostly be silent, but misery loves company? I legit hate working alone for the whole day and then into the evening too.
Are pharmacy schools moving to Zoom instruction too? Wouldn't be a little weird to have pharmacists who completed their degrees online?
Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?
Why are people not good at ending zoom calls? I feel like I’m always the person who throws in the closing statement (I.e, ok well sounds good is that all? Have a nice day! This was helpful thanks Karyn..looks like we’re at top of the hour already) 🤦🏻♀️

Anyone combine ADHD meds with Nootropics? I do a lot of work in the startup/VC community and it seems everyone in that world is obsessed with nootropics. They have private message boards, meetups, etc., just to discuss the topic. I know at least a half dozen companies that have very active Slack channels on the topic where everyone from the CEO on down debates various cocktails, programs, brands.
Am I missing something? Last I read the research was VERY inconclusive.
Within Salesforce, @Quip, Slack, Tableau Software how often are there leadership changes at the VP or above level? Is this an annual thing? X years after acquisition?
Our first meet up went so well! Join us for our next one!

Hello, I was wondering about which companies usually hire for entry level ServiceNow role?

Background - I recently got the Certified System Administrator for SNow, PMP and CSM

Realizing why agencies are still struggling to find enough Business Affairs employees. And know several people who this has happened to. One is pay. Salaries have been going up the last year or two. And some agencies aren’t raising their pay as fast as others. But another big factor is employers are trying to find candidates that check every box. So if a candidate has 19 out of 20 required skills or experiences, they aren’t being given offers. Even if that one piece can be easily taught …

Interviewing for a Senior Brand Manager (SBM) role @KraftHeinz in Chicago. Looking for insight on realistic salary range and variable compensation. Currently an SBM with 6 years experience in brand management and 6 years sales experience. TIA!
I had an interview at an investment bank for a senior associate role. I had three interviews, the last one with an MD. He asked me in the beginning of our interview who else I have spoken to so far and I mentioned the two other interviewers, one including the hiring manager. He mentioned he’s usually the rubber stamp and culture check fit and there are usually more rounds between my last and him. Sort of threw me initially but I think I recovered and it went okay? Have not heard for…

On a track for promotion for Q1 but feeling burnt out and like I can’t manage the workload in order to make that happen.

Her point is pretty accurate, but am I crazy to slow down for my mental health and sanity at the expense of delaying promo by 3 months?

During the the initial presentations - yes. But if I am talking to client for the 39th time I don’t bother switching on the camera as the client knows me. Most of my team is fine with that. Exception is when I am talking to C-level folks. Then I keep the camera on during all meetings.
Your director should have set expectations ahead of time. We’re 10 months into this. He/she should know better.
Once we’ve developed a rapport, I don’t see a point in turning on camera.
Yeah, no. If I’m not presenting or have any big role in speaking, my camera will be off
Depends on the context. During some large pitches, I’ve seen requests for only the speaker to have their videos on so there’s focus on that person. If there were only a few on the call you mentioned, I might have kept it on the whole time. Otherwise it feels like you were lurking or not interested. If this was a recurring meeting, camera off should have been fine.
