Hi Everyone! Thank you all for joining! Please message ideas if we have a second call. I know Zoom can be hard. Also - FYI - This bowl limits posts to 2 every 4 hours so couldn't send anything earlier.
Anyone want to study for the CPA over zoom? I hate studying alone and feel it would be better with a group everyday. Let me know if interested!!
What dress code is standard for zoom interviews?
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
Hair idea for guys who can’t get to the barber! You can wear your hair confidently in ZOOM meetings with this look.
Wanted to work from home today but my manager told me otherwise. No good reason other than needing me at her side as she reviews work. I guess phones, Instant message, and webex aren't enough!
I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.
What are some options for video conferencing with clients one-on-one now that zoom is out? See: https://techcrunch-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/techcrunch.com/2020/03/31/zoom-at-your-own-risk/amp/ I'm looking for secure free options and am considering jitsi, skype and Cisco webex.
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
Zoom is dumb
Hi, I’m interviewing for a S&O manager role at DD. Would love to see if anyone can offer insights on the case study and tips for the onsite. Thinking about forming a small group to do one or two discussions or prep sessions (over Zoom?) within the next few days to get ready. Already connected with one other candidate to get this started. Feel free to comment or DM me.
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.
My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?
Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?

Does anyone know how insurance work when you leave a company? Say I leave on day X, does my insurance ends on day X as well or it will last til the end of the two week period after my last paycheck (because insurance premium is still held from paycheck)? And does medical insurance reimburse / cover based on the date of treatment or the date of they processing the claim? Thank you so much!

Hey y’all - I have a large amount (think $20K +) of credit card debt. I recently finished grad school and have enough to pay it all off, but a lot of my money is in stocks, mutual funds, etfs, etc. Should I just liquidate and pay down the CC debt ASAP? Should I consolidate the CC debt into another loan? Curious how folks have thought about the right balance of debt vs investment.
