Sorry...new to this. NYC.

Furlough does not not necessarily equal termination of employment, just means employer has decided not to put you to work for X amount of time, which is entirely within the employer's rights. Not sure you would have much to look at right now from a legal perspective, unless furloughed employees are disproportionately members of a protected category.

Any nurses here transition completely out of healthcare and into tech and hit $150k with their first tech job? I have my associate in nursing with 10 years of hospital experience. Im trying to figure out if I should get a bachelors in computer science or just get a certificate in my preferred area of computer science. I want tech companies to take me seriously and want to crack $150k with my first job. My nursing job now pays 130k. What area of tech would even pay that much as a newbie?

I'm wondering if anyone else is worried about the increasing rents in their area? During my current lease rents have literally doubled and salaries haven't gone up at all. Even the most derelict places cost more than what I'm paying now. We're not in a position to buy, no family locally, husband and I got 2nd jobs. Even our teenage kids got jobs to help but still won't be enough. I'm trying to take the bar exam but don't have time to study or pay for prep course and can't afford to be w/o work

More proof that the vaccines are political - two days ago, the research showed increased efficacy from getting Moderna booster was too insignificant to advise for or against; yesterday it was recommended for adults over 65 or immunocompromised. As someone actually looking for real insight on whether or not to get the booster, this is beyond frustrating.

Going on a year at an agency in Accenture and I feel like I’m not developing fast enough. I’ve had one main project but I’m waiting around for months to join other projects to reach capacity. They fall through because the client drags things out. I want to work towards a promotion but my manager says I can’t be put forward because I don’t have enough projects under my belt. I can’t control that because the agency sets the work. Any advice? Accenture
