This isn’t for consulting, but please if anyone could help with a restaurant/ food & beverage director position I would greatly appreciate it. My immigrant father has been unemployed over a year due to Covid. He can’t get a job anywhere despite his stellar experience and work ethic. He speaks perfect English so that’s not a problem, it’s really more so his age I’m afraid he’s being discriminated against. PLEASE if anyone can help to get him a referral/ job ASAP. Thank you.
So I have been trying to get back into a more steady stream of income & I have been applying to jobs, one of the first questions most interviewers have asked is about my network in NYC. I have been consulting all over the country since 2016 & since Covid hit most of my NYC contacts in the Food industry have left the City. I have missed opportunities because I don’t have a giant network anymore, any advice?
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
When did vaccines and mandating them become so divisive and political? Most colleges (and some jobs) have always required proof of vaccination for MMR, HPV, etc well before Covid. Now everyone seems to be all up in arms for Covid vaccine and work mandating them. The science to make a vaccines isn’t new (which explains the speed) nor is the mandates to get vaccines. The vaccine is also clearly effective so this “debate” seems silly at this point
People have been asking me for referrals post COVID and I want to help everyone but I also know that some people won’t be a great fit. Is anyone else facing this? Does it hurt to refer not as strong candidates? I am assuming they will just get rejected?
Reflecting on 2021. What is the best and worst thing that has happened to you this year?
Best: Due to the pandemic, my parents aren't able to travel out of the country this holiday season. It's my first Christmas with them in probably 15 years 🥰
Worst: l went through a lot of medical issues this year (covid, surgery, mental health, etc). I'm much better now but it was a scary year for me, health-wise. Eye opening for sure.

Heyo! Can anyone recommend some funny, comedic, light-hearted podcasts? I usually listen to NPR in the background, but the constant barrage of COVID content is getting me down. Thanks!
Okay, it’s time to stop putting on a face about this. I love my boyfriend so much, but covid is ruining us. We are both still WFH and argue every few days about the dumbest stuff. My and his mental health are both diminishing and it feels like an impossible trench to dig out of. My stomach hurts every time we fight and I (independent of him) feel so stuck in this horrible global crisis. I don’t want to lose him, but I need to figure out how to dig us both out of this unsustainable mental state.
As the post-COVID workplace is transforming the core essence of what’s most important to recruiting, retaining and developing talent (employees, consultants, hybrid type work), what are the core one or two “MVPs”- - (Most Valuable Professional-Personal) ‘essentials’ you require for your ideal career-life design blueprint?

Hi ladies, how do you decide which shoe boxes to keep? Trying to organize my closet (clothes, shoes, & other accessories) and wondering if it makes sense to keep shoe boxes for shoes that I know I’m keeping or have already worn. Do you just keep them to pack away special occasion shoes that are rarely worn? Don’t have a ton of space so trying to be smart about what to keep & how to keep everything as organized as possible. Any tips that helped you get organized would be greatly appreciated!

Does anyone feel terrified about the prospect of being a Partner as a woman, especially if/when you have a family? Single right now and thinking of having a baby on my own. Sometimes jealous that it seems it's not much easier for men. Maybe this is not just Partnership, but relevant for senior leadership position anywhere? Has anyone seen role models that have made it work? Any key characteristics / takeaways?
I just achieved a very high performance rating at my company (was told I was rated in top 5% across the company). When I called my mom (emotionally immature , and sadly a bit mentally ill; though she is Asian and would never admit it) she said the accomplishment was not due to what I did primarily but rather the fact that I went (ages ago) to a top Ivy League school. This hurt so much that I cried and my dad got very upset too “a joyous occasion was ruined and became tragic and sad” he said.
