Recommendations for a good webcam for Zoom meetings? My laptop camera isn’t cutting it anymore.
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?
Haven't seen anyone put "Available for Staffing" in their Skype location. Seeks like it would be helpful for people in your network to know you're free without contacting everyone. Any downside?
I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
If I'm expected to take a Zoom call during my lunch hour, I'm eating on camera. Also, who cares if my lemonade happens to have a salt rim - let's just focus on the work.
I don’t wanna join this virtual happy hour. What should be my excuse given everyone should be available stuck at home?
To my IT people - can a company track my IMs on Skype? Like....retrieve a IM conversation?

That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.
imagine learning about the consulting life as an undergrad, going through the brutal recruiting process, landing “the dream job” where you get to travel, explore, and develop yourself. Then suddenly...Corona hits. And your first day is you in bed waving hello to the HR rep on a zoom meeting in your Superman tidy widys
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.

Applying to lbs, judge Cambridge, insead, nus and Cass as safety. Does this look good? Lbs only if I get scholarship. Should I replace Cass with imd? 28, 4yoe, 2 promotions, already got masters 3.7 in tech and undergrad 3.7 finance from top 60 schools. Impressive work experience. Will sit for gmat hoping 690-720
I have an awesome opportunity to apply for a promotion that would give me additional responsibilities but a faster track to leadership. I am also 10 weeks pregnant with my first confirmation appt next week. I want to go for it but feel bad about applying when I would go on mat leave in about 6-7 months, pending everything is on track with my first appt. Wanting advice on whether to apply or not and whether to disclose the pregnancy?
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?

Last night I was looking through pictures on my phone. I was such a happy kid and young adult and even after joining the firm I’m at I was happy for 2ish years…..the past 4 have been awful and depressing though. Man I wish I could go back to that time and do things over.
