I’m an Inclusion Teacher in an elementary school. My role is to support special education students in the general education classroom. I’m struggling how to provide the service due to social distancing protocols. In the past I could sit next to the students or bring them to a back table to work on skills. With the extra furniture in the room removed, this won’t be possible. I will also have students working remotely from home at the same time. Any suggestions or ideas?

Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!
CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary. Limited travel will still exist and maybe more at senior levels. Regional/local travel will be the norm. Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
Got laid off a month ago after 1.5 years despite great snapshots and utilization. Was just offered a consulting position at a much smaller local firm for $5,000 less than what I was making before

Are beards appropriate in big law in the US while interviewing and/or working as an associate? Could it just depend on the person interviewing you? From what I’ve seen in Europe, they’re tolerated even in old school environments. Thank you!
Sunday thoughts - prepped for an upcoming interview all day and felt wracked with self doubt. Then realised that the 5-year-ago (22yo) me would be thrilled to be where I am now. I came from nothing from the middle of nowhere - the land of teen moms and red necks. I had imposter syndrome all throughout undergrad and didn’t believe in myself. If you’ve come a long way, share your story and let’s toast to our successes. This job can be hard, but getting to today hasn’t been easy either

We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
Meeting my partner in-person this Sunday for the first time, over lunch at his home. I’m bringing his daughter a little gift, should I bring something for his wife? Is that weird? I was thinking flowers or something. What’s an appropriate gift to bring. In my European culture it’s customary to not show up empty handed to someone’s home for the first time. She’s European also.

Work Halloween event & CEO says costumes are mandatory. If I say fuck it & don’t dress up because I’m no longer a child, nothing is really going to happen, right?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
