Zoom tops for women? I’m going to another firm soon and will have to appear on camera more often. I don’t have enough blouses. Any great suggestions of where to shop (bonus for online)? I really don’t feel the need to spend a lot, but want to have some appropriate shirts ready to go.

Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

How do I tell my manager I'm leaving the firm? First time quitting a job and I don't know the etiquette. I assume a Zoom is better than an email. Do I tell him where I'm going and why? Do I tell other people too or let him do it? Any important details to take care of?

Hey fish! Have a question on work authorization. If I have an H1B and wife’s on the dependent EAD (after I-140) and I go out of country to work with same company. Does her EAD still continue to be valid? Or does it invalidate the moment the primary visa holder is out of the US.

How do I ask for a salary increase when I’ve worked for less than a year? New incoming analysts are getting paid about 10k more than my current comp. My mentor who’s a senior manager even knows that my cohort is being underpaid....
I write a lot of recurring stuff for my agency. If I have a crazy idea for a subject line should I treat it as usual or should I talk to the ACD in person? Which would help me sell it better.

Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

Interviewing with an agency in NYC, but I’ve never worked in that market, so I’d love some guidance. Nearly 5 years experience. Working at an accomplished place right now. Have several awards. What should be the LOWEST number I accept in a negotiation? This isn’t a big holding company shop, so I’m trying to prepare what realistically could be the lowest I go.
Have anyone successfully negotiated down their rent due to Covid? I’m in NYC and my management has been very inflexible.
