Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal. DMV during COVID is giving out tokens at 5am and folks need to wait for 6-10 hours outside the office apparently. Does anyone know an easier way to do this? Driving schools? Brokers? Thank you!

Any recommendations for a private cook in Cabo San Lucas? Looking for good simple fresh Mexican food for 3 dinners and 2 lunches for 6 adults in our penthouse kitchen. Prefer this over going out to eat given we will have a full kitchen.
About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management. Is it a good idea to start applying to different opportunities in case my raise/adjustment isn’t what I’m expecting at year end? Not sure how long the average job search could take...
Just lost my 2nd H1b lottery. Have 1 year left on visa and 1 lottery left. Do any firms out there sponsor for Greencard before you have an H1b? Assuming it’d be very hard for me to get someone to sponsor me for H1b with only one year OPT left given the lottery, but maybe GC would be possible since it’s higher likelihood of approval?
Timing sucked for Katie Sowers spot, what with her defense giving away 7 points right before the break.

Accenture's o9 Solution Architect (Supply Chain Planning) Opportunity - recruiter reached out for a consultant role. I'm interested, but I'm not sure if I will be pigeon holed with this role since the job title and description are specifically tied to o9. Is anyone willing to give me more insight?

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?
Thoughts on quitting during parental leave?
One of my bosses doesn’t shut up about freaking diversity (which is extended annoying).So since I’m the only latino on the team, I’m going to use that on ms.weallbelong to get promoted.
Just hired at a Big 4 as a consultant, which was to be perma-full remote. Am now being asked to travel for projects with unclear % of travel time.
