Advice for re-entering the workforce after a 3 year gap? I had some health issues that made me leave my career in 2018, and by the time I was healthy enough to work again, covid started and I was unable to get any interviews. I haven't been able to find the motivation to cold apply for jobs again because I'm not quite ready to go through all the rejection like I did last time. How do I get over this? And how do I edit my resume to explain the gap?
Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.

Dating a new guy (2 months in) - happy but I feel like I’m always craving more and there’s a void inside me. Covid caused me to end a few long time friendships - could that be the reason? Or should I expect to feel 100% fulfilled from my romantic relationship alone? TIA💕
Hey Fishes- So my parents got B2 Visa on March 2020 to come for my graduation in May. But due to covid, they couldn’t travel. The visa has duration of 5 years. I heard somewhere that if you don’t travel within 1 year of obtaining visa, you can’t use the remaining visa? Is that true?
Big law single parent associate at new firm with two young kids who just tested positive for Covid from a breakthrough case. It’s going to be a rough few weeks.
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
Recommendations for getting back into exercising and working out? I get puffed out walking up the stairs these days. Haven’t worked out in over a year and put on some covid pounds. Food is back under control but I want to feel healthy again and less like I’m going to die walking to the corner store. I’m also so wobbly right now with no muscle definition at all. If anyone follows any programs or you tubers they would recommend, please let me know.

Applied to a role on LinkedIn Wednesday (they had easy apply). VP of Finance reached out same day via LinkedIn and liked my resume and ask I apply via their portal. I did next day and let her know when complete. How long would you wait to reach out to a potential employer to ask about next steps? This is in an industry I’m super passionate about so want to show I’m invested without being too pushy. Thanks!
