What would you do, if anything? A coworker with confirmed COVID19 results (asymptomatic, only lost sense of smell) refuses to wear a mask and continues to go out, even sends her toddler to daycare.
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
The New York Times: He Has 17,700 Bottles of Hand Sanitizer and Nowhere to Sell Them. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/14/technology/coronavirus-purell-wipes-amazon-sellers.html Sigh* of course someone would try to profit off of others...
Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?
I am currently situated in the US and plan to do a landing in Canada for PR stamping. Any recent experiences going through this? Can I just land, get the stamping and fly back? Or do I need to wait back for negative covid test?
What activities and hobbies have you picked up during covid-19? I find my typical activities getting more and more mind numbing the longer this drags on and am looking for some suggestions off the beaten path.
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
First there were small groups of humans in caves, then communities formed, then kingdoms, then empires, then countries. Leave aside the impact to globalization due to covid, the future might be contd.
Unexpected side effect of thorough Marie Kondo-ing my closet: online shopping is no longer enjoyable. My wallet thanks me but I need a new hobby to entertain me during my coronavirus self- isolation
As an Asian American, have you experienced bias this year that you believe was related to coronavirus?
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
A big fear of mine lately has me feeling like a terrible human being. My brother in law had a small covid wedding last year, I was so excited to go but had to cancel last minute because I started miscarrying a few days before the wedding, at 5 weeks. I ended up watching the livestream, and miscarried during the wedding, alone at home (I urged my husband to go to the wedding and that I’d be fine, my parents were checking in on me). I haven’t been able to get preg since. (Contd in comments)
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
I have flu like symptoms, but can’t get tested for covid and getting a doc appt seems impossible. Do I basically need to wait until I’m critical or extremely sick to see someone? Any experience here?
Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?
Been on a documentation project for a year. I went to Grad school in tech to write documents for a living. Wtf is life even...

I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???
So had an interview at an AM50 firm (early) mid-March. Talked with about 8 attorneys/partners and it went super well overall. No dull or awkward moments, everything flowed. They said they wanted someone to fill the position soon, but had no timeframe on it because the partner was super busy. Flash forward to now - still no news. I have followed up twice and the response is always "no updates yet, but I'll keep you posted." They clearly are not interested. Why keep me in suspense?!
Best side project you’ve ever seen?
Anyone here exited from BIG4 to Salesforce? What do you like about the switch? Interviewing for a role next week and trying to find out more about life on other side.
Final interview with Salesforce today for a demo engineer position. Any tips? Already made it through the technical portion so feeling pretty good.
Getting haunted by the fact I didn’t get promo for 2 years and just got it this year. The peer then is my (thin line) day to day reporting manager who still leans on me. While I respect her position, I’m feeling like I don’t have the independence of “running the show”. The client has been ours for over few years so I can’t even make “relationships” work. No team reports to me directly so feeling like I’m still a SC but with a title. I hate bringing low energy but what can I change about this?
after a case interview today i realized one of the points i made in my recommendation contradicted one of my other points. in my follow up email to the interviewer should i address this and correct myself, or just let it go and not bring it up?

How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
Accenture peeps: how's the expense policy and benefits? Thinking of moving but I like my second cell phone and platinum card discount
If you can't function due to a heavy depression cloud or anxiety attack, do you say you are taking some time off bc you're not feeling well or "under the weather "? That is the phrase of choice at my office for any sick time, but ppl usually ask what it is. I don't want to disclose but I don't want to seem lazy.
Staff sent out paper AR confirms and got them back. Manager saw them and asked why their wasn't fold marks. Turns out staff forged signatures cause he didn't send them. Partner came out and fired him!
Need advice. Trying to move to industry in bay area. What parts of compensation are negotiable? And how to offset for cost of living?
Aye, someone re-post the comp hack!
CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?
Need suggestions and your views. Currently at Manager level in DUSI and just got 33% hike. Currently I am holding an offer from a boutique firm which is offering a much higher executive level and 30% hike over my current salary. But since this firm is pretty small and setting up new operations in India, little hesitant. What do you think fishes ?
