People, Have seen a lot of my clients with some really high-quality clear video during zoom calls, any suggestions on a webcam. My company HP laptop camera seems to be aging really bad and I feel like, could buy an external one? Internet is not a concern, have a 1000 Mbps connection

Logitech C920 is great. Before buying something extra, check your lighting first. Bad lighting is the biggest reason for bad webcam quality. A new camera still won’t look good without natural light or some studio lights or something like a ring light.

I’ve just picked up ring light from Amazon for this reason. Will be testing it and post reviews

DSLR or mirrorless camera

This is only true for videos you are recording or broadcast on a consumer platform like YouTube or Twitch. A good Logitech with good lighting and a green screen behind you will give you anything a DSLR would for live video in business applications like Zoom and Meet, which only gets to 1080p at best. A DSLR is better able to produce quality in low light situations, though; but if you have room and budget for a DSLR, you'd definitely have room and budget for proper lighting.

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.

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
