I joined consulting before covid and really enjoyed the lifestyle (travel, events, socializing, afterworks). I’m young and it was a lot of fun. Now this lifestyle has been gone for two years and the only lifestyle is teams calls. I feel..bored? But bored is not the word. What do y’all do outside of work, during the week? My weekends are fun but my week is just work and teams calls… I’m 22 and I don’t wanna stay at home all day!!!! I wanna see the world
I live in DC. After COVID lockdown is over I am still never going to any of the Smithsonians.
This is what happens when you think you’re being careful, but really you’re just being selfish https://www.forbes.com/sites/victoriaforster/2020/11/12/maine-wedding-gives-half-of-the-guests-coronavirus-outbreak-leads-to-177-covid-19-cases-and-7-deaths/
In Chicago (24 M) - vibing really well with this girl I met on Tinder, ideas on a Covid friendly date of sorts? Female 🐠 pls help@with your opinion
My apt building just told us only 1 of 2 elevators will be functioning for the next 46 weeks. My lease ends in April 2022. Can I use this as a leverage point to try and keep my current Covid rent price on my apt? Huge inconvenience
In case you’ve put off getting a vaccine because you’re too busy to leave the house, any New York City resident 12 and older can now request a Covid vaccine at home. https://forms.cityofnewyork.us/f/home
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Has anyone had a hookup during quarantine? A guy told me he tested negative for COVID last week but I don’t know if I can trust him - thoughts?
In my town, we have been getting daily email notifications from the school district informing the parents of new Covid cases, usually it’s 1-3 new cases per email/day, the last email earlier this evening, 22 people (students, faculty, and district employees) tested positive!! Infection is spiking bc of the holidays. I am so glad we made the decision of keeping our kids home for virtual classes instead. How is the situation in your town?
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
Planning a short trip to Costa Rica. I am vaccinated, but do I need a Covid test to get back in? Any tips thanks
Have your employers made you return your covid monitors/desks if you’ve gotten a new job? How have they collected?
Man, a lot of people really don’t want to get vaccinated. I wonder how employers with large concentrations of resistant workers are going to deal with the mandate
For the people claiming Joe Biden is “hiding”. Where do you expect him to go? He’s not going to go throw a rally because he’s not dumb enough to kill his own voters by spreading Covid and encouraging people not to social distance. Where else did you expect to see him, that you didn’t?
Which club so you'll support, and which city are you based in? Getting the city in if we want to get along to watch a match together, post covid. I'll go first: Manchester United | Atlanta
Has anyone returned to the U.S from abroad recently? How do they check your covid test to allow you into the country? Do you just need like an email or a screenshot or something?

What do I need to do to sponsor B2 visa for my parents? Is there a chance US grants B2 to sister and brothers as well?! I am a GC holder.
Applied for a role at Strategy& US. Know how long they’ll take to get back to me? Would love to know if I’ve been granted an interview or rejected out right.
Got an intracompany transfer offer for US and Australia - where should I head? Longterm goal: live in the US and work in tech (esp. Google). US offer: L1B visa, not transferable to other companies. Greencard uncertain. TC n/a but probably 🥜 Australia: work visa transferable, Sydney or Melbourne. Work in AU, switch to Google -> relocate to US. TC probably 🥜 too

Seeing PwC's massive raise in comp, wondering how other firms, especially KPMG would react..
A recruiter reached out to me directly from IBM Canada to interview for a Cloud Support Senior Program Manager role. I’ve got just under 10 years of professional work experience - 2 and half as a PM and have worked vendor before. I also have my PMP and disciplined agile certs. Can anyone give me insight on this role and what could be comp? I’m in Toronto and also wanted to know the culture and crowd.
After being on terrible projects back to back to back, I get why we focus so much on points and status as consultants. One of the few consistent perks here.
