Canceling Zoom sessions is kinda like taking a day off without all the headaches. We're hybrid and the kids are not showing up ( virtual or in person). Still have to be on campus.

Campus recruiters: I am not a premium employer on Handshake but I want to host a multi-school virtual info session.

It’s been a while since I’ve had to do this and I don’t want to have to re-do anything and look messy! Thanks for any tips in advance!

New to the job and I’m finding it impossible to speak up in Zoom brainstorm sessions. I don’t know what’s wrong but my anxiety flies through the roof when we get on and I can’t get myself to speak for the entire session. I feel like my peers are hyper aware of it, which only makes me more anxious. Does this happen to anyone else?

Need some advice... I started at a new agency recently. Almost immediately upon meeting one of my male colleagues (over zoom) I felt this attraction and genuine connection. Context: he’s 11 years older than me but both of us are single, never been married, no kids, etc. he’s not my boss and we don’t technically work together on projects. I want to get to know him better but don’t really know how to approach the situation (or if I even should) without it being inappropriate or awkward. Thoughts?
