I got the covid booster and the flu shot (on different arms, but they can be on the same arm). As someone that went through the IVF process fearing a breakthrough case and positive COVID test result that would cancel the cycle, this is going to give me peace of mind going forward. CDC planning for pregnancy bulletin on the COVID vaccine:
I am feeling some depression due to COVID and I want to move back to Hyderabad to be closer to my parents, but I'm worried about looking for jobs outside. Any advice?
Any ideas that people have on how to network/break into circles of tech startups? Long story short, joined a tech Fortune 500 company a little over a year ago as an entry level analyst and things have gone downhill with COVID (limited growth here but got exposure).

I have no network as it stands in tech startups, don't come from a target school (although I graduated with honors) and at a loss of where to start.

I’m in Tax and completing the mandatory GAM WBL. Usually, this course it presented at ETU and can be described as three monotone panelists speaking for two hours without any inflection whatsoever. This year, due to COVID, it’s presented as WBL. However, instead of a new and interesting format, it’s just a recording of the same humdrum blithering. Except now, I get to listen to it with my children fighting in the background.
I just had to get a Covid test. I’d rather get the shot every week than that swab. I can’t imagine doing weekly testing!
WLB at MBB (including during COVID)? Thinking about moving over from Big 4 (at Manager or Associate level), but also don’t want to grind like I did in my 20s …since I’m thinking about becoming a new father in the next 2 yrs

3 months pregnant. So far I’ve had two ultrasounds at visits. I’ll be 4 months at next visit and yeah I guess I go every month for a visit. Question, do you get an ultrasound done at every visit? Maybe not required but can I ask for it?..
