After a year of chaos from Covid and furlough I don’t know what the hell I’m doing with my career anymore
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
Allergy season started early this year. Woke up w/ small headache and feel like a have a minor cold. Now we play the fun game of COVID or allergies?
Just like how it was (or is) with all things COVID, how long do you think the protests and riots will carry on?
I think some agencies are using Covid as a smokescreen for making adjustments that were needed previously, but would have caused a riot. Not all. Just some. Am I crazy?
Nyc 🐠- I am looking for a civil surgeon to complete the immigration medical exam. Any pointers for a cost effective option in NYC? Also, I don’t have my immunization records and guess i will have to undertake all the shots again 😩 Last thing I want to do is go into a medical facility during Covid but here I am.
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb

I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Had my Green Card (AOS) interview today for a marriage based application. We did not receive an immediate decision after the interview. One item cited by the officer was the expiration of I-693 medical records (it’s been over 2 years since we filed). Coincidently, as per new USCIS guidelines, they’ve extended the validity of I-693 to 4 years due to covid. I didn’t know this or else I would’ve called it out. I’m hoping this doesn’t generate an RFE. Anyone here with a similar experience? Any RFEs?
Got hit with the ol' COVID-related Workforce Reduction last week. Any signs of life in any recruiting departments around the city? Asking for a me.
If Trump was right about COVID starting in a Wuhan lab, could... could he be right about other things? He might have actually been a stable genius after all.
My husband turned out positive for Covid 19 and I’m negative (still). Anybody out there who took care of someone with Covid cares to share advice? 🙏
Has anyone gotten into arguments with family members over the science of COVID and taking the vaccine? I firmly believe that it ultimately is your decision whether to get vaccinated, but I’d also be remiss not to share why I think we should trust the science. I don’t think just sitting back and allowing another family to spew out far-right conspiracy theories to other family members is acceptable. And equally, I recognize what I’m doing may not be ok. Perhaps there isn’t an in between. 😒🥴
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
I work in a small office (10 people, not with Mazars) and there is talk requiring everyone to be Covid vaccinated in order to return to the office, i.e. to continue working at this firm. Thoughts?

Those claiming A human life is more important than cars and shops - Why would you all gather up without wearing masks or social distancing? 100k+ ppl already died in the US due to COVID-19.
My ultimate future goal is to work in vulnerability management or penetration testing. Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time? Or will nobody take a chance on me once I’m 5 years into my career? Or will they but my salary will go down significantly as I’ll kind of be a newbie again?
Anybody done the Hilton Grand Vacations package in Hawaii? Where you sit through a timeshare pitch for 70% discount on hotel. Was it worth it? Was the property nice? Hidden fees?

Anyone working at Avanade Canada? Do you have any idea of the base salary for group manager and other benefits attached to the position?
I’m applying to a program that sends students to various banks and PE firms. The entire recruitment process is highly competitive and I’m seeking advice on how to prepare/approach the interviews. I am starting the Breaking into Wall Street Guides, but am iffy on articulating technical questions in a concise way. Any advice (also regarding behaviorals and overall how to impress the admissions committee)?
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..

What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.
