Is it mandatory or look bad if you do not attend a virtual happy hour with other new hires from your school before starting? For Deloitte
Anyone who’s living alone: Any advice you have for dealing with being lonely during all of this? I miss having true face to face convos with people instead of zoom calls, etc.
I’m excited to share that I received the equivalent of a standing ovation (via Zoom) during this mornings all staff (at RP3 advertising agency) Monday meeting for my Black History Month presentation - “Invisible Shoulders: Celebrating the Contributions and Accomplishments of Blacks in Advertising.” 😬✊🏼
Are Zoom's privacy issues a threat to their growth or market performance? I think they could easily get this out of headlines, most people are too busy worrying about 'rona to push on this
Advertising supports the arts! Many performers of all sorts are hosting New Year’s eve online or zoom-y celebrations for really nominal $ amounts. Broadway singers, local musicians and everyone in between. Why not buy a ticket and add to your NYE at home fun? Or just buy a ticket anyway whether you join or not? Support our artists and performers. I’ll post a few but add anything you know of that supports the Arts community. Simone Golob/Getty Images:
1. I’m a pandemic hire at this new agency and I like it enough, but I feel SO detached from all these humans I’ve never interacted with IRL… like, I just don’t give a flying fuck about these team-building zoom calls. :( 2. My boyfriend and I often just go off cam / mute during the more useless meetings and have sex instead. I secretly hope everyone who is muted/cam off in meetings is getting some action.
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 have to pick a zoom happy hour activity tomorrow that will entertain 8 teammates (old school MD included). Any ideas that all will like?
On large Zoom meetings involving your entire legal team + opposing team + business folks, if you are a midlevel/junior, do you keep your video on?? Is it better to keep video on or does nobody care?
Just a rant: For f sake, when your coworker stops responding to your Skype, email, LinkedIn and has blocked you from their IG, do not find them on Whatsapp to initiate personal convo/flirt. AAAA 🥵
I am receiving lot of virtual happy hour meeting invites! Like almost for every weeks and it drives me crazy. I am okay to socialize with office folks like once a month. Am I crazy to think like that?
Contract cut short due to covid. Open and available to pretty much anything art related at this point. Will Zoom to anywhere in the country! Anybody have any hot gig tips?
Talking to my boss tomorrow just to connect individually on Zoom. Should I ask anything specific? Wasn't going to make this call too much about business, but want to show I'm here to work hard.
Has anyone here been laid off due to covid19? I was, along with 100 people from my office, through a 6 minute zoom call.
Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.
What is good leadership like in this Zoom era?
Ppl who got married in COVID with itty bitty or zoom ceremonies — how did you make it feel... “big” enough? Not in attendees or $ spent, but life significance. (Cont’d)
I have a question related to retention bonus. I received a retention bonus of ~1L in November last year. After TDS deduction I got ~70k in-hand. I will be leaving the firm in October this year. Since I will have to return the entire ~1LPA, is there any manner in which I can recover my tax deducted in previous FY?
Planning on buying a protein powder meal replacement supplement instead of eating out as much when traveling. Can I expense this under wellness? Or should I just charge it under meals?
Has anyone crossed the border (via car) into Italy recently? I know I need a covid test, I’m just wondering how this is actually… enforced. Are there border controls? Or is it more like random testing? Would be driving in from Austria for reference.
Re: WFH position I live in San Francisco & have been interviewing with a few companies for PR - both agency & internal positions. Salary negotiations have been based mostly on experience but also the fact I live in SF. Companies/roles based out of Los Angeles, Chi, NJ. Pls don’t laugh if a dumb question: does it matter if I move AFTER getting position? I’m fine adjusting to time zones. I’d love to have better quality of life with same salary but a city with trees + free parking + SEC football

What are your thoughts on sending out company/region-wide farewell slack messages when quitting? What’s a good way to announce but not be annoying in this remote world? I was gonna do an Irish goodbye but felt that was a little disrespectful.

Microsoft 🐟 I’m joining soon and curious to know about the parental leave policy. Are you able to take leave within a year of your start date/is there a waiting period before becoming eligible for the leave? Thanks in advance!
I grew up in a low income and single parent family. Humble beginnings. Now doing an average job as an accountant. I always feel inferior and insecure during a relationship.
