Going to Vegas for the first time in December. I have Marriott platinum. Are there valuable status matches I should do and influence where I look to stay? Thanks for the advice!!
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
Wife is a US citizen and I’m a Canadian citizen. We both live in Canada. She can cross the US land border from Canada because US citizens are exempted from the travel restrictions. Can I cross with her (from Canada to US) as her spouse?
Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags? It appears their new credit card will take the cash back you earn from purchases and auto invest in the coin (limited) of your choice. Seems intriguing but will admit I am a noob to the space
Tips for getting more points on Delta?
Anyone fly Delta with ORD as their home base? I realize I may need to take connections but is this worth it? Lost EP last year, status matched to Platinum with Delta if having status matters
Which is better overall for travel and dining perks? Chase Sapphire preferred or American Express?
Growing tired of Delta. Good chance to make Diamond for next year, contemplating switching to United. Can't decide if I want to just yet. Maybe next year. Anyone done this before?
Any reason to wait to merge my SPG and Marriott accounts? I was thinking to hold off until hitting plat on both accounts to count towards 2 years for lifetime status but not sure if that even works
Omg I forgot my headphones In the plane after an early morning flight with delta! Called them, waiting for a call back.. anything I can do to get them back ?
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Should I time travel? I’m so bored of daily play I’m eager to catch new fish & bugs yet at the same time, I don’t want to miss out on anything lol.
Has anyone noticed a huge drop in reliability with United's Wi-Fi service? I feel that in the last month or two my Wi-Fi rarely works and they just tell me it's "intermittent because of weather"
Has anyone had Marriott gift you the next level of status if you’re only a few nights short of the requirement at end of year?
Is it just me, or does anyone else not really sleep Sunday nights before travel day? I usually only get 2 or 3 hours 😅
Hey , I've tried looking for specific keyboard shortcuts for Google sheets but can't seem to find any. Before giving up, wanted to check with the experts for the following: 1. Turn on / off data filter (similar to Ctrl + Shift + L in Excel) 2. See drop-down options in a cell (similar to Alt + Down arrow key) TIA!
Hello, does anyone have communications experience with an airline / cruise company that can share any insights on their experience? What are the pros and cons of the travel & tourism industry?
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
So I interviewed with an agency pre pandemic but of course rona put everything on hold. They really liked me according to an inside source. I want to keep top of mind for them and keep checking in but don’t want to seem desperate or annoying. Should I message them once a month or is that even too often? Halp.
Anyone applying for an MBA starting next year? Thoughts on some schools relaxing gmat requirements?
Wilson Sonsini Remote Positions - Anyone have any experience with these or work with those remote only (or other BL that have remote only positions)? Debating applying to a position or two to move back closer to family and the practice areas offered seem pretty interesting (and related enough to M&A) to justify giving it a shot...
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
How do you get interviews? Feeling like I send out tons of apps and so rarely get interviews. Am I missing something?
I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
How do I reach more BIPOC designers? Let me start off by saying I identify as Latinx and I am not trying to tokenize anyone or to discriminate against white candidates. I’m looking to add to our design team and I’ve been really trying to add diversity to our company. Anytime we put out the word we’re looking for more senior design roles the majority of candidates are white males. I don’t want to shut talent out, I just want to make sure our opportunities are seen.

Accenture CN peeps, my manager has not been able to staff me to a project for 2 weeks now after my release from one of the projects where the role as as good as content manager’s. I had voluntarily asked for my roll off as the role was just to upload come content on various platforms. They tried allocating me to some internal project but I asked them to staff me on a client facing project. I want to know what is the impact of all this on your performance or relationship with manager etc.?
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Hi everyone, I interviewed with Microsoft yesterday and whew, I'm not one to say I dream about labor, but lol, I really enjoyed the interview/vibe. I'm super anxious, does anyone know how long you hear until the portfolio round? This is my second interview ever in UX Design for reference. The first one I had with a start up ghosted me.
