Networking Seminar - STEM Fellowship SFU ft. Tara Furiani

I want to write about things my (human) network is doing more often, so here we are.

Ramneet Brar (President of the STEM Fellowship SFU) hosted Tara Furiani (Not The HR Lady), one of many HR people I'm connected with on LinkedIn who are very outspoken about current HR practices that put the employee at a disadvantage because of bigotry.


In short - She makes the suit wearers of LinkedIn clutch their ties because she says more than "Network is networth."

Gotta love it.

"But the cool thing is; We're doing it. We're adapting. We're utilizing technology like we've never done before."

Tara says that the authenticity of being in quarantine has counted so much more than in normal times.

I agree.




Furiani: "Most companies don't know what to do right now,"

Incredibly relatable. She points out how it's even more important about 'Who you know' in a world of uncertainty.


Q&A:

Answers are slightly paraphrased. I'm working on the journalistic integrity to keep it short while not bastardizing the answer.

Q: What is the best pivot you've seen by a company in these times?

A: Netflix, as they're spotlighting black issues.

Q: Would it be appropriate to send messages to people who work in the companies you want to apply to asking them about the company and how to possibly prepare myself to apply?

A: Absolutely - That's the diligence that you want a candidate to do. I think it's great - Do it!

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently! It's still not safe). I was watching this video to find a little more information about how to properly use Monitoring mode on my Macbook to sniff for WLAN packets on the network. So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
