Pfizer is 80% effective after the first dose and 90% effective after the second dose, according to a new real world study. Most ill effects are from the second shot. So I’d prefer not to take the second shot. Am I wrong?
I’m looking for an outside sales rep in Milwaukee for a SaaS company. My top rep last year cleared $800k before stock. If you know of anyone or think you’re a good fit, let me know!
Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!
Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
Hi! For the folks who have recently took the SHRM-CP exam this year, how would you describe the test and any tips you can provide would be helpful!
How do you continue with work as usual when it seems like the rest of your life is falling apart? I feel like I’m spiraling and just want to quit everything and drive somewhere far away to start over. I have a call with a partner soon and not sure if my usually good at faking enthusiasm self will be able to pull through on this one.
Litigators - any tips for preparing questions for depositions/examinations for discovery?
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼

Looking for advice on project management software or tools for HR consulting. Our firm doesn’t have anything that is standard or used at all, and while some of us are starting to venture into using Microsoft Teams, I feel like there are so many tools out there and we could be doing things way more efficiently. We work in small client teams (1-3 team members per client usually) and it’s a mix of strategy, tactical, and outsourced HR work. Any suggestions?
Im really struggling. Every day I'm on the verge of a complete mental breakdown. I'm always working, yet I'm always behind on hours. I feel like I'm digging deeper and deeper in the hole with no end in sight. I know firm life is not for me, but I need the money and don't want a gap in my resume. Im thinking I want to go in-house, but it could be a year before the right job comes along. I'm just so tired. I don't know if I can hold out that long. Anyone facing a similar situation or have advice?

When drafting an MSJ is it better to address the ways that OC might overcome it; or is it better to just generally say why you’re entitled to MSJ and avoid tackling the finer issues that your MSJ presents?
I became a lawyer to litigate but have found myself in a more compliance role because of the pandemic. There are things about litgation that I miss but I love my team and the firm I work for. I'm not over worked, I have a very good work life balance and I'm being compensated fairly. I'm thinking about going back to a law firm am I crazy?
I see biglaw raising the salaries. I’m in midsize regional firm payed $163K class of 2014. We’re currently trying to convince the management to increase pay.

How do you guys organize a resume for an external job application when you’ve worked at the same company for 10 years and all of your relevant experience is from there. Still just eight bullet points?
Looking for help to negotiate offer: recruiter brought up comp expectations twice during interview process and asked if I was ok with 110-120 salary. Offer came in near the low end. Can I ask for higher (125) now that they’ve extended an offer? The role is a step down in terms of level so we’d discussed coming in closer to the top of the range. I also have a retention bonus at my current firm that I didn’t bring up as I wanted to wait until I received an offer.

Are the “covid deals” for apartments starting to go away? I want to move out of my parents place but they keep guilting me and telling me that NYC isn’t safe and won’t rebound right away Does anyone have any sources they can direct me towards? My instinct is that as it gets warmer and vaccination increases, rent prices will increase as well and I should try to get out now.
I was told yesterday that they're considering replacing me with someone much more experienced. Should I just let it happen and roll off or is that a bad look with CRT coming up (id like to roll off)..
I was at a job for 8 months before I was furloughed due to covid. I’ve been at my current job 6 months since then. A recruiter from a start up I interviewed with in B school reached out asking me to apply for a position. I’m very interested in the company (exit out of consulting),the role, and the comp structure. Is the bouncing around bad? Should I consider the job or wait until I hit a year before leaving?
