What have you seen work well in terms of internal employee recognition /appreciation programs? Ideas, management, etc.
I find myself questioning basic politeness I’ve learned since a child. Wondering what everyone else thinks. I work with an associate. She’s great. When she does good work or something I’ve asked her to do, I, of course, say “thank you!” I don’t really expect a response. She always replies “you’re welcome!” Or some variation. And for some reason, that’s awkward. Is it just me? I know in normal manners, that is the right response. Why does it sit funny?
Actively seeking a new opportunity and I am slowly starting to feel discouraged due to lack of response. Anyone else having issues searching for employment right now?
Am I crazy for being nervous about my first job asking me to bill 2100 hours? It’s a big law job, and I’m from a smaller part of the country, so very “fish out of water” feelings in my head.
We had a blizzard that shut the city down (close to 50 cm of snow) and I’ve been physically unable to leave my apartment, and I’m going stir crazy. I’m in Canada and covid cases have been low, so we’ve been back in the office a bit, but now they’re up and I’m worried about what the winter will bring. At least before I could sit outside or go for a walk, but not being able to leave is not going well - I worked from my bed today which I know is bad but couldn’t even get to my desk. Any advice?
This might be a dumb question so pls excuse my ignorance but do non-equity partners get bonuses? Is that a thing?

Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself. That being said, I will NOT be one that comes up short of my number. Now, this leads me to you all, to present a question. If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.
So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?
Are you aware of any NY/NJ firms hiring junior associates during this time? Unemployment has been difficult and job postings have been slim to none. Thanks in advance!
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?

How bad does it look to reschedule an interview due to a "client workshop"? The interview is going to be highly technical and I'm just not going to be ready.
I am actually impressed with Frontier Airlines. Thought it was more like greyhound but feels like a well maintained megabus. Coming from a Delta Platinum. :)
Regrets post: what stock did you sell in the beginning of COVID and regret it now? Mine: Bought FTCH at $9.64 in Nov 2019 cause the company is amazing at what they do, sold at $10 in March 2020, cause the market was going down and I thought people would stop buying luxury clothing, today’s price: $54.76

Does anyone really go in to the office on Fridays?
I recently got a new manager and it was someone who had worked on a project with me for a while and became a big advocate for me. We had a good professional relationship and he seemed like he really wanted to help me grow my career at the firm. I recently met up with him in person and we had drinks with other coworkers. My manager got really drunk and things got inappropriate. We are both in very serious long term relationships. I’m not even sure if he remembers what he did. Do I need a new job?
Is getting LinkedIn premium while job hunting a must? I want to reach out to recruiters directly but inmail is only for premium members. I’m getting discouraged. I know one month is free, but it’s just a lot of money after that (my salary is depressingly low)
