Work wants us to get vaccinated and return to office, but I’m an Asian woman and anti-Asian hate makes it unsafe for me to commute. I live in NYC and have to walk and take the train to work. How do I ask for a reasonable accommodation to continue WFH when everyone else starts returning to the office? How do I communicate to my boss that it’s not that I don’t feel safe, but I actually am not safe? Or should I go the PTSD route for the reasonable accommodation, given I probably have it?

How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account? I confirmed from the HR that it is a support and development role and has only day shift. Just doubting the shift, I can't work in night shifts How is the work life balance in Wipro? Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
