I need a part time job to be able to support my family that lost most of their income due to Covid. I’m a first generation immigrant college grad, which for me means student loans and parents with unstable jobs. Any ideas what I could do to make some extra money besides retail?
For those teleworking due to COVID, when did you announce your pregnancy at work? I’m worried I’ll be passed over for opportunities.
I was at a job for only about 8 months because of a Covid-related restructuring. I wasn’t fired, but the role responsibilities materially changed so I left. How do I notate / message this on my resume?

I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
Not sure if I’m just venting or asking for advice. With the current situation with COVID19, I am no longer traveling every week for work. I’ve come to realize that my husband (CONT)
Advice needed! I was laid off in Jan and since then I’ve been building my own practice (which I started last year and was doing on the side). Since Covid happened, work has been a lot slower so I started applying for jobs. I got two job offers in these past couple weeks, but the problem is that neither is in the area I want to practice, though the experience from one of them would be probably useful in the future. Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)

Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
Anyone who had COVID or pretty sure they had COVID, have you noticed any strange symptoms long after the initial sickness? I exhibited all symptoms in late March for ~10 days and recovered. Since then, I’ve had a few weird 1 day fevers and occasional stomach issues, latest in August. Wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences.
Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?
Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J). The problem is I have to fly into Chicago next weekend and will be required to take a COVID test before I arrive as I won’t have the 2 weeks to be “fully vaccinated”. Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.
Anyone could recommend a career coach who is familiar with our industry? I was recently hired after being unemployed for a year due to Covid. My team is amazing, my colleagues are super helpful, but my I hate the work. I found myself behaving very out of character, unmotivated at work, unwilling to speak up, and awkwardly at socializing. I don’t know if it’s me or it’s the work. Think I could really use some help from a career coach. Thoughts? 🙏
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”

Anyone traveling from Boston back to NYC on thurs? Wondering if hurricane is going to affect that flight route and if I should take the train
A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
