I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.
Anyone know of outdoor/drive thru COVID testing in the city? Bonus points if it’s close to Wicker or Lincoln Park
How are people in long distance relationships coping? We used to see each other every 2 months before covid but I literally have no idea when I'll see my bf next and it bothers me more than it bothers
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course). I’ve created a market research survey for the concept and this group is the perfect target market to provide thoughtful responses. I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2
Deloitte strategy 🐠 I noticed the travel requirement says 50% in non-COVID times as compared to the traditional 80%. Is this accurate from your experience?
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.

Is an MBA going to be relevant 5/10/15 years down the line post-COVID — considering how we have all evolved the way in which we source candidates/talent? Fielding for opinions here, because I’m curious! What do you think will replace it? How do you think schools will evolve? We all love M7/T15-20, but will it hold the same amount of prestige and/or power as it does today?
Does anyone at Accenture have insight on if candidates that received verbal offers prior to Covid-19 will still get written offers within the coming months?
Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.
Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
I was swarmed with work in June and until 10 days ago, now everything's gone silent again. I'm guessing it's directly related to the COVID uncertainty (e.g. 2nd waves and all). Until we have a vaccine we won't be making a lot of money, I guess. I'm on track to bill 1750 hours this year if I'm lucky.
Need opinion.. am I screwed?? Admission officer from LBS reached out for a quick 1:1 after seeing my interest. I scheduled an appointment for today but had to cancel yesterday last minute more than 24 hours before because my moms surgery was moved up due to covid so I had to take care of her. I explained I had a family matter and rescheduled for next week. I just got an automated email that my appointment was canceled with no reasoning 😭

For anyone who anyone who tested positive for COVID, have you noticed you hair falling out more than normal?

If you could ask for anything at your firm - what would you ask for? Caveat: something that is a stretch but realistic. Background: There is some current turmoil and I have been identified as someone they want to stay through it and wait for it to get better. We don’t have many females at the top. I don’t qualify for equity based on current metrics but the metrics used have lots of room for improvement and the current metrics could be “ignored” for me potentially. (Cont)
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
Recruiters reach out to me and ask me if I am open to industry opportunity. I am curious so I interviewed a staffing company. They will apply a position on my behalf. Now I am nervous and feel guilty
1. I’m a pandemic hire at this new agency and I like it enough, but I feel SO detached from all these humans I’ve never interacted with IRL… like, I just don’t give a flying fuck about these team-building zoom calls. :( 2. My boyfriend and I often just go off cam / mute during the more useless meetings and have sex instead. I secretly hope everyone who is muted/cam off in meetings is getting some action.
Anyone have any recommendations on resources for building confidence for interviews? I feel like I’m not getting past many R1s and it must be bc of my subpar interviewing skills.

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
