Any tips for starting a new position that’s entirely WFH for the foreseeable future?

Make sure your WFH space is comfortable. Also, take frequent breaks to walk around and stretch. My back and hips have paid a huge price this year (doesn't help I have severe arthritis in those joints). Don't eat at your desk and have a stopping time. Also, if available where you are, consider some kind of co-working space membership just to be around humans. I go to one once a week in my neighborhood and it's nice to have a semi-normal feeling day.

Connect with a current worker and build a relationship with staff (paralegals other attorneys)

I started out as a first year fully remote, and have been so for about six months. Agree with the previous comment that a comfortable workspace matters. If your firm doesn’t provide it, I recommend investing in a second monitor and any ergonomic equipment you need (you may not know until you’ve been working for a while). I ended up buying an adjustable standing desk because I was having too many back problems.

Set up coffee chats. Ask about an associate mentor. Find out whose precedents are good. Get to know a good paralegal.

I have 2 offers: 1. PwC US for the Manager position. 2. Infosys for the Senior consultant position. Both offered same base salary (around 150,000 USD) PwC has huge signing bonus. Have to join Infosys as H1 transfer is already done and I already resigned from TCS by the time PwC offer was finalized. Once PwC H1 transfer is done then should I leave Infosys within 2-3 months after joining or should I continue with Infosys and decline PwC offer?

Overworked mom of two young kids and I’ve come to the realization that I have very few friends who live nearby. I’m the only one of my close circle who didn’t head to suburbs after kids and WFH has made me aware of how reliant I was on work friends for a social outlet. I’ve still got great friends I can call for anything but, really missing having girlfriends I can just meet up without planning a month in advance. Strategies for making new friends in middle age and with very little spare time?

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide. He scheduled a meeting with the CEO and said “offer letter to follow.” Three hours before the meeting the CTO called me to tell me they were rescinding everything due to a business decision that they aren’t filling the Solutions Architect role. Does this happen? What should I think of it?

Need career advice: in industry, took a job in the function I want but not the exact team to hopefully internally move later. Just found out that our team is looking to hire someone who would focus on what I actually want to do (however position hasnt been approved yet and no idea if it truly aligns but based on the name it does). I haven’t really been upfront with my interests in doing more work related to the team I want but have dropped subtle hints. Worth being upfront? More in comments

Anyone exit to Corp Dev from consulting? If so, how did you like the move? Would love to chat as I’m looking into this.

My firm recently announced that they were beginning a reservation system for hoteling starting February of 2022 for offices . We were told to clear out our offices by December 31,2022 . The lease is not up for renewal until June 2024 at which point they will look to reduce their office space due to a hybrid work model . My issue is what incentive do I have to make a reservation to go to an office when I can simply continue work from home hassle free. Any Thoughts and comments?

ACN interviewer made a mistake and did case study interview for manager level role instead of consultant role. I have great feedback from 1st Interview and not so much from case interview because of this. I had a catch up with the recruiter this morning and he said they've now closed recruitment and have said they will get in touch with me towards end of January for Q2 recruitment and that I may need to do case interview again. Good prospects or bad?

If you’re planning to leave one big 4 for another and also switch from one service line to another, is it worth asking your current company to make the internal transfer happen instead? It’s something I just recently started looking into and I didn’t mention a word of it on my annual review just recently. It would 100% come out of left field and I almost feel like they would at a minimum want me to do another busy season in audit before making it happen. Almost feel like a clean break is easier.
