Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?

Campus recruiters at professional service firms — has scheduling final rounds changed in a virtual world for your firm or do you still try to schedule your candidates on Fridays with a full day of back to back interviews? Is it easier or now preferred to schedule ad hoc through the week? I was on maternity leave last year during COVID and I’m curious if preferences for students (or interview teams) have changed? I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.
