No I don’t have one, but the tone of this post is very 🙄. Yes, some people want to try harder to look good for work than you personally do right now. Why are we having a contest for how little people care? Let people use ring lights if they want without judging or ridiculing them here. Do you also want to start a post saying how ridiculous it is that some people are still putting on makeup for zoom calls?

funny

So if you agree that people can do what they want and think what they want, why are you on here judging us for not feeling the same way? Splat.

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.

I’d like to start a female only network group. I’m thinking it can be virtual, maybe meet in a small group via zoom once a month so everyone is meeting with different people every month.

I’ve never joined a network group before, so I’m sure there are details I haven’t even thought of.

I recently transitioned from Finance to Internal Audit. While I think this job is perfect for what I want during this stage of my career I feel like theres a stigma. Like this holiday during family zoom calls I'll tell relatives I stwrted a new job during WFH and when I mention it is Internal Audit I get mildly disgusted looks or "oh boy, I hate auditors" responses. Since the holiday season is almost over can you share how you respond to that? Or do you tell people you work "in compliance"?
