I want to get something really special for my husband this Christmas. We’re not spending the holidays with any other family (COVID) and currently expecting our first baby in the spring. Any ideas?
If you were fired / terminated by a prior employer, when searching for a new job, what would you say if the application / recruiter asks if you got fired or why you left the prior job? Will the reason pop up during background check? Would companies really give you a 2nd chance if you are being honest about the fact that you got fired? (Note: assuming pre-COVID)
I never thought I’d say this - but I have cancelled my trip to the Modex industry show in Atlanta next week out of an abundance of caution over coronavirus related to elderly relatives.
Curious, how many of you have a work teammate or family member sick with COVID-19? (I have none so far, knock wood, but an acquaintance or two.)
Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
Indian citizen, live in Middle East , didn’t visit India in recent past , fully vaccinated , I learnt that I cannot enter USA on L1 due to covid restrictions . Anyone else in same boat?
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
Hi Desi Fam, I noticed a difference between the general consulting bowl vs desi bowl where almost everyone in the desi community is for the covid vaccination.

For those who exited from Audit, How would you compare your work hours compared to the Audit? Please provide your current role as well! I saw that in deals, the hours are much more random and schedules are much more tighter! I am also curious if it's temporary workload considering the amounts of deals post-COVID.
Can I disclose a public sector client if it's public knowledge to an interviewer? As in our contract was published and reported on, is it ok for me to say I work on it? Also the project is a covid project and pretty obvious to connect the dots if I describe my work. Been through 5 rounds with an investment bank without disclosing and have a final interview with an MD.
I recently tested positive for COVID. Luckily I feel fine and am working/quarantining at home. However, I told my roommate and she refuses to get tested and is still going into her office on a daily basis (staunch conservative that says she feels fine and has no symptoms). This obviously infuriated me and led to a big fight but she won’t budge. How should I handle this...?

My father is retired, and is looking into investments. Currently has rental properties, but at a certain point too many of them are a headache that he doesn’t want to deal with. What would you invest money in (2-3 Million) that is fairly hands off? We have talked about small businesses, but he really doesn’t want to have to manage the day to day activities. Rental properties that are >1 bedroom typically don’t have the return he would like to see.
