Hello! How are you covering COVID in the yearbook? We were thinking of doing a fun spread showcasing different masks kids wear.
Has Covid offered an opportunity to work remote from a different country? European Jr/Mid Copywriter who would love to work remote for an American agency.
PSA: Many a traveler to Mexico contract giardiasis, which is also known as Montezuma's Revenge. Signs and symptoms of giardia infection may last two to six weeks, but in some people they last longer or recur. WTF, first COVID now this 😩 who knew there was a long haul version of this 😭
Have a follow up call with a firm that put my offer on hold due to Covid, what are questions you would ask?
Has anyone had a live jury trial since covid? We could potentially have one in the next 30-45 days. I have team members who very strongly do not want to travel to urban areas and potentially be exposed for a variety of very legitimate reasons (personal and family health issues). I’m not willing to make anyone do it. Has anyone dealt with this?
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Did anyone that has Covid tell their manager they have Covid? I am about to get tested and can barely breathe I think I need to take a few days off work...
So I was hired exactly 2 months prior to this covid epidemic and as a result it has made learning how to be a lawyer quite a rollercoaster. I’m trying to learn how things are supposed to be but in all actuality, I’m having to be flexible and figure out how things are working at the moment...which is fine, but it’s hard to predict much of anything when you have nothing to compare it to. Being a law student and interning is nothing compared to practicing. Any advice!?
Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal. DMV during COVID is giving out tokens at 5am and folks need to wait for 6-10 hours outside the office apparently. Does anyone know an easier way to do this? Driving schools? Brokers? Thank you!
Do any of you do trachs on COVID 19 positive pts? We have several patients that have been on vent for 20 plus days. Are there clinical guidelines around trachs for COVID patients?

So my former boss (whom let my husband go into brain surgery knowing out office had a Covid issue) is telling other attorneys in my area that I’m a bad person (in several different ways). None of which are true. I’m curious.... I don’t want problems but would like her to stop defaming me. Any tips to get this lady to stop?
Question for all but especially Europe/Germany based fish: Appropriate way to handle the “how much do you want/range” question? Not desperate for the job but do really want it. Concerned with searching during COVID. Only a handful of consulting YOE behind me (but tons of industry exp).
Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.
Is it too late to get biontech stock? Seems like we are going to get vaccines for Covid on a regular basis?
I see so many friends going on vacations, traveling via air, car, train, etc. this includes within the country and abroad. Am I stupid for not going anywhere since Feb 2020??? What information about COVID have I missed? I know precautions are choices taken by individuals but how do I justify missing out on fun when so many folks are planning vacations and traveling freely? Thoughts??
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?

I won a $3000 prize for one of the sweepstake events by private company. They are going to write a check for me after I submit the tax forms to claim the prize. If I am on H1b & currently in process of GC, would claiming the sweepstake prize be a problem from future immigration perspective?
Any EY 🐟 in ATL for Sr course?
The San Diego Zoos 2020 Audited FS (CohnReznick) excludes a disclaimer of opinion, and gives a fully unmodified opinion, however the balance sheet shows a $1 balance for all revenue producing zoological assets with a disclosure explaining there is no objective basis for establishing value, however Sea World does have their aquarial assets on their Balance Sheet. Plus the SD Zoo uses ZIMS to track all their animals, including all attributes (ages, sex etc) which the fs says is not possible. WTF
Im interested in becoming a HR Generalist and I am well versed in TA & HR but I get passed on b/c I have 1.7 years of experience. Is it possible to fill in labor laws and employee relations skill gap or would I really need to learn this from experience?
