I will have traveled twice in two weeks after this week. Is travel picking back up for anyone else? I still feel pretty nervous but it feels good to be getting out again.
Gate announcement: "Unfortunately we can't board your flight yet as they can't open the cockpit door. Sorry for the inconvenience." Always something new.

Returned from maternity Feb 2020 then lockdown started then heard of layoffs. Got a temp internal role because I knew travel wasn’t easy with a little one and voila when so many were loosing jobs and incomes I got a $6k bonus. Shocked! Tech consulting M2 Bay Area $135k base.

HR question - a friend of mine was fired from an industry job. He is still struggling. While he is still employed, he would love to get back to the same company.

Applying to an AG office and they have two openings in the same division that are a fit. One is a managing attorney position and the other is just a regular attorney position. Both require five years experience, with 7 preferred for the managing one. I have 5 years experience in general civil lit though not in the specific area of law this division practices. My chances will obviously be better with the non managing position but any reason not to apply to both?
