I love Skype for business, federated communications with all my gear- Plantronic Bluetooth headset, my Sennheiser Pxc550, and my mobile conference donut.. Love the screen sharing capability and configurations to start a call sans lobby. What's your experience?

Slack is better. Skype for Teams is better. Skype for Business is okay.

Omg this. Been trying to add people "outside my network". It guides say it's possible but none say exactly how to do it and all the ways I've tried haven't worked. Blerg.

Agreed, slack is much better, however ITS is at least 5 years behind.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

I have two offers - same comp: Big4 A - I used to work there so I have some network and connections. But it’s a specialized group in niche industry (good balance of provision and compliance) Big4 B - never worked there. It’s a provision only group specialized in tax accounting but no specific industries (probably will see everything) I value my network especially in the middle of the pandemic but I don’t really want to be confined in a niche industry. Provision > compliance. Any advise? TIA!
