Sometimes I volunteer to go on business trips I don't need to go on because that hour or two by myself in the hotel room is the only actual vacation I ever get.

Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Any GA, NC or SC agencies hiring?

How much is position scrutinized when you have a brand name on your resume?

I’m changing jobs and near my 401k limit in my current plan. How do I limit contributions with my new employer while still maximizing the match?
I’ve been referred by several friends but did not even get interviews. I was always able to get interviews before. Is it because the job postings are just fake now due to COVID? Or something is wrong with my resume?
I shifted from Consulting over to a CSM role and am finding that even though I’m in a better place culture and pay wise, I’m feeling every day social anxiety that comes with a customer-facing role, making me think I’m not cut out for this and that I should move to something more internal, like corporate strategy. My worry is if I make this type of move, a paycut will always have to follow. Has anyone else felt this and can offer some advice?
