For those that have been job searching prior to Covid how difficult is the current hiring climate vs. the one prior to Covid?
Really low (day 1 of my periods) andI’ve been stressing today on things that are outside my control. Have my birthday coming up, and i’ll be 35 soon. No bf, no man, no marriage in sight. The clock is ticking, more so as i have large uterine fibroids, so not just my parents, even my gynec wants me to hurry up. Have been alone cooped up at home for more than a year now with no end in sight thanks to COVID. Dating is bust too. So all in all really lonely. Any words of encouragement?
Moving to nyc in January. None of my friends are in the city due to covid and I get super lonely - how are new people finding friends or is that impossible now?
Anyone with India employment knowledge/experience? Looking for insight into the following: - How common is life insurance as an employer provided benefit and has anyone tried to get quotes on this recently? I’m being told by our broker it’s impossible to get anyone to quote on this now because of COVID but I don’t have a very high opinion of the broker… -contract recruiters in India. I’m looking for multiple contract recruiters (English speaking). Any leads??

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.
A sleepy summer Sunday watching the end of a great test cricket match, grabbing a beer with friends and glorious weather. Honestly it is the first day since covid that life feels normal for me
Has anyone else taken a hit to their work confidence during covid? I tell myself that just because I’m bad at WFH doesn’t mean I’m necessarily bad at this job. But I’m a junior, so I don’t even know if that’s true.

Feeling depressed because I just did a more realistic budget calculation for a March trip to Spain. B/w the need for refundable flight and hotels (I normally do airbnb and don’t care about refundable flights, and I don’t have enough miles and can only get us partial coverage at 1 hotel out of 2) plus covid tests, the trip is about $1000-2000 more/pp than I anticipated. I don’t think my SO’s gonna want to spend the money to go..Should probs look into backup intl locations 😭

Advice, suggestions, comforting words welcome. Feeling a bit lost.
Thinking about joining tech. 🐠 What are the non-FAANG companies do you see the highest potential (thinking that joining FAANG today probably doesn’t provide that much upside)? From a preference standpoint, most interested in fin tech and health tech. But trying to solve for RSU potential above all

Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.
