Everyone ripping on Florida is missing the point of the lockdown. People were always going to get sick. The point was to build the testing and medical capacity to deal with the inevitable surge. It seems like many of you just want everything to stay shut down forever. I hope those of you who are like this are the first to be laid off. Just read today 80%+ of small restaurants won’t survive this. Life must go on, and we cannot wait until a vaccine for that, since there’s no guarantee.

27, got life insurance and disability insurance when I was 24. Not sure I jumped the gun there. Feels like I am just paying and not sure I need to. Have rental income, w2 income, and investing in stock market right now. Thoughts?
Struggling with identity now that I’ve finally, truly accepted depression/anxiety are medical conditions I need meds for. I love who I am on meds, but I hate feeling like that isn’t “the real me."
Hi, I’m a Medical Lab Scientist wanting to transition into becoming a Data Scientist. Will the boot camps or google certificates suffice in getting me there?
Thoughts on healthy/clean calorie dense meals? Ramping up my exercise and a big guy - pretty sure I likely need to hit at least 4-6k of calories a day to actually gain weight. Struggling as I find it hard to eat clean and get that nutritionally density - only so many beans and chicken breasts and shakes you can have before getting sick of it

Hey everyone! Currently work in regulations for a large medical device company (2-3 YOE in NYC). Looking at a possible move into financial compliance jobs (BSA, Risk, SEC Regulations, etc). Does anyone have any insights into what is needed to make that transition, salaries, wlb, etc? TIA
Just a bit of a rant - I’m back to the office after a prolonged absence (a week in the hospital and six weeks of leave due to illness) and people keep commenting positively on my weight. I lost about 30 lbs in 7 weeks due to being sick, and I’m just starting to get an appetite back again. I’m still dealing with some health stuff but more or less had to go back as I can’t afford to be on employment insurance anymore. I know the comments are well-intentioned but I hate it 🙃
Currently a medical assistant and considering the PA route. Living in Canada where the PA profession is relatively new (not as many specialities for PAs as the US, and salary is lower). I’m nervous about future burn out and unfavourable working hours - any advice?
Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
PwC only provides high deductible w/ HSA plans. Even the “low deductible plan” has a deductible in the thousands. What if you’re a new joiner that is in the middle of expensive medical care?

I’m curious if social media managers are creating content, posting and managing the paid boosting and/ or dark posting? Is it usually separate teams, or can one person wear all the hats? And what is your preference as a SMM?

Updating my resume for 1 year of AWM tax compliance work with hopes to switch into FDD or another big4 equivalent. Is there any reason to be specific about the tax work I’ve done if it isn’t really relevant? Any other transferable skills anyone recommends highlighting? Thanks in advance!
My background is in civil litigation, but I’ve been doing a bit of transactional work as of late. Every now and then, I get an assignment to put together a random contract of a type for which there is no sample form in my firm’s files to use as a starting point. I don’t have the time to start drafting from scratch. To all my transactional colleagues, where do you start when you find yourself in such a situation? Ask Google for a good sample form?

Thinking of getting into Change Management after years of experience in psychology and education. I believe a person's best shot at landing a job is through their network but I don't know anyone in corporate setting or Change Management. With this career pivot, I'm afraid I won't beat the numbers game of online applications because I need to EXPLAIN how my skills translate to change management. It's not immediately obvious just by looking at my previous job titles. Any advice?

Anyway, my 10yr old niece asked me what my job is. I said I used to travel to help clients implement software and be trained on the new software. Now I do this from home.
She tells me she thought my job was to travel around and send people postcards. 😂😂 that would be an amazing job.
