I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)
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?

What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
The guy I am dating is nice but too busy. He tries to call me for the 10 minutes window he got. A part of me want to cut all slack and just be available and take it as-is. The other part feels, (contd
Anybody trying to be my Spanish speaking partner? Looking for anyone. If multiple people want to we can do a group thing where we’re all on zoom just speaking in Spanish too. I’m a beginner... M - Black - 25 - 7.439 (scale 1 to 10 on looks) - 7.440 (scale 1 to 10 on comedic level) - great listener - I have my dumb days like very very dumb 😅
Anyone feel like they just aren’t a good attorney/cut out for being a lawyer? Started out doing corporate work, hated it. Switched over to litigation because I had originally went to law school thinking I wanted to be a litigator of some kind. About one year in, I work my tail off and have the reputation for doing so. Almost like clockwork my written work gets torn apart, and I make what i feel are stupid mistakes. I try to cut myself some slack because I’m junior but the doubt creeps in.
If I have messaged some of my coworkers on Skype just complaining about how I don’t like the work I am doing.. can the company see that? I heard they monitor that. Will I get in some sort of trouble?
Guys, can we get together once a week on audio zoom call and talk? It will be a judgement free zone? I feel like I don’t have enough people to talk I stay in my zone and I need someone to talk. I can organize a call if this sparks any interest.
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.
I wonder how this crisis will affect childhood development. Socialization over zoom is just not how humans are made
How do you create a setup where you’re not “looking away” from the camera on calls when you use your second monitor primarily for everything? I’ve gotten feedback saying it looks like I’m not paying attention when conversing on zoom.
Have any of you subpoenaed a nonparty deposition to take place via Zoom? If so, how do you represent this on the Subpoena?

I did just tell her and i’m seeing her tmo but anything i can do on my end? This isn’t something i’ve done before and i’ve brought her up many times beforehand 🥺
How are you guys keeping things going with people you've been seeing? Just had a zoom date last weekend where we watched a movie but idk of any other ideas And how do you make moves to into...
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’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Tips for building relationships up, down and across when staring a job remote? Obviously I can set up one-on-one zoom calls, but anything a little different that seems to have worked well?
What does a Senior Sourcing Recruiter do at AWS? I have received an invitation to interview for the role, but the JD seems a bit ambiguous. Is it a sourcing specialist role? With no scope of full cycle recruitment? Amazon Web Services
I feel completely lost at work. I started at a new company 1 month ago and got put on a client that’s just as confused as I am. I’m only associate level (with a little experience from my last firm) but I feel like I’m “in charge” of this audit. I feel like nothing on the audit has been done and I’m soooo nervous for manager review. Wtf do I do?! I’m so overwhelmed.

Need some insight — I’ve been talking to a guy who is pretty cool and we vibe well. It’s still early stages so nothing serious, but sometimes I can’t tell if he’s being self-centered in conversation or just trying to impress me. What are some indicators I should be looking for and is there a good way I can raise this with him? For context, he definitely expresses interest in me and my opinions, but he’s often one driving the conversations and we end up mostly talking about topics he brings up.
Does anyone know EY’s parental leave policy. I believe it’s 16 weeks paid. What other kind of leave is there. This is for NY area.
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
Did I just mark myself as a flight risk by telling my managers that I was going to take another internal opportunity? If the new manager changes her mind in the process (and of course she still can since the written offer is not out yet - the org likes to have everything buttoned up before handing out the writing offer so it's accepted immediately), am I screwed? Oh I also said, to my current managers, that the workload was wearing on me... this idiot here
So with everything that’s happened with BLM and firms diversity and inclusion initiatives, what are the odds we get MLK day off as a holiday? Surely a little hypocritical to not celebrate/ appreciate the Civil Rights Movement with a day off?
I’ve been in an entry level position for 2.5 years. I am not pushing for promotion. If I’m hitting utilization targets, am I at risk of layoff from being in this role too long? I work for a huge firm
Faang PGM role or M at B4 (digital)? Both salaries are around 200k TC. One concern is being pigeonholed by going the Program Management route, not sure which has the better trajectory/ career path.
