Not sure if this has been discussed on here but I know it’s bound to come up since we are from every country and persuasion on here! What country you reside in is visible to the public but then every country is going to be in a different time zone obviously and this affects the timing of projects, obviously.
Well, take me for example, there are about 4 time zones in the US and the one I am in is Eastern-people would normally want to know things like that; people would assume I live in NY, Washington DC, or South Carolina, but what’s important is that I’m on Eastern time.
I ask this because sometimes people expect to hear from you quickly, obviously it could be 4 in the morning here, but someone on the West Coast may not know that and think I might be lazy or unprofessional, when the truth is it’s 8 am where they live.
How do you handle this? (And how many of you mention your time zone in your profile as a way of helping people know when you are available or not?)
