Random question. How can someone find out if they’ve been blacklisted? Is that still a thing? Is there a “rate my professor” but for producers/creatives going around? Things aren’t going well job wise and yes, it’s a pandemic... but I need to know if it’s Covid-19 ruining my life or mean girl tactics.
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
Hi— I recently lost my job because of having covid for too long along with another disability that required me to work from home occasionally in a job that hated that (I know how illegal this is, I’m working on it). I’ve been in the hunt for a while but am having hard time staying afloat mentally after rejection after rejection. Does anyone have any advice? I’m bitter being in this situation to begin with but really feeling hopeless. Help!
Do you think Alvarez & Marsal will require employees to get a covid booster shot and/or seasonal flu shot?
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
Lost retainer beginning of pandemic and haven’t been able to get replacement (Covid/Moving Out of State/ Other Priorities). Top teeth have shifted back to some extent, bottom teeth have built in retainer so haven’t moved. Back at parents home now and want to fix this mistake, what are realistic expectations? Full Invisalign program ~ 2-3k, Orthodontist to give me some break since we’ve already paid X thousand, some middle ground? Just want to try and be prepared on fair expectations.
I got the covid booster and the flu shot (on different arms, but they can be on the same arm). As someone that went through the IVF process fearing a breakthrough case and positive COVID test result that would cancel the cycle, this is going to give me peace of mind going forward.

I am feeling some depression due to COVID and I want to move back to Hyderabad to be closer to my parents, but I'm worried about looking for jobs outside. Any advice?
Someone tested positive for COVID-19 in my office today. They’re only shutting the office down for one afternoon for “deep cleaning” and not requiring any self isolation. Is this normal? Has anyone had a similar experience?
It’s interesting how much we don’t talk about things like this (general covid gruesomeness really), especially with clients. Feels like an elephant in the room. Let’s make “consideration” our bottom line.
WLB at MBB (including during COVID)? Thinking about moving over from Big 4 (at Manager or Associate level), but also don’t want to grind like I did in my 20s …since I’m thinking about becoming a new father in the next 2 yrs

Anyone in the area a fan of going to outdoor breweries or bars during these times? Lost most of my social circle after a breakup a few months ago (they were her friends since I was always traveling and couldn’t meet others or join groups) and with covid it’s been difficult to find ways to meet new people and make friends so figure I’d try here. trying to find some people in the area to hang out with in smaller groups! 23 y/o M if that matters
Help. Feel like since covid the work is extremely transactional, I’m bored, and all of my coworkers are leaving.
Just read the sad news of the death of 1st AD John Nolan. (See wheresspot for thread) While I hope be didn't contract Covid on either of the 2 sets mentioned prior to his illness and death, if it comes back that he did, we need to have a long hard chat about what went wrong. Condolences to his family. Truly horrible news.

How to negotiate being brought on at a higher level? Was laid off and recently received an offer from a comparable consulting firm, but they want to bring me in at a level lower than what I was at before. How should I go about negotiating to be brought on at the same level I was at (two years of experience at level, would have gone up next performance year)?
Deloitte had an impact on me and several colleagues that they laid off #impactday #impactwhatmatters

Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
For those whose firms sponsor H1B at the analyst level - how common is this? My firm says they don’t do it until the MBA level because of “prevailing wage” issues, but the analyst comp differences aren’t that different that I know of. Appreciate any insights on this!
