Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)

Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November?

I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated

Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
GPS people - Can I get per diem for the weekend if I stay at the client location over the weekend instead of flying back to home. I won’t be needing to expense the Hotel or rental car.
I'm not sure what to expect regarding a salary raise and bonus for a associate that recently complete their first year.
How long did it take for EY to get back to your with offer decision? Had final interviews last week just wondering what people’s experience was
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...

What’s the salary range for a cyber Deloitte manager in a tier 1 HCOL city? Currently have an industry offer and am getting to the final rounds with Deloitte.
Do Deloitte's case interviews involve math?
Is it common for firms to offer part-time? Difference between associates and partners? How do the hours and pay compare to regular hours and pay (do you actually work less, or does your team need help so you end up working basically full time for less compensation)?
What kind of experience (in terms of years/deal exp) is expected when applying to Analyst roles at JP/GS/MS etc that have stated they require prior experience? European/UK focused
Can someone travel to US with a stamped Canadian Student Visa? My brother is moving to Canada for studying and I'd like for him to have a 1-2 week pitstop in US. US consulate shows temporarily closed for a B1/B2 visa. Appreciate any inputs from fellow desi bowl members.
My brother has been offered at Punjab National Bank as a Manager in Chennai. He has been told that he must have a car on his name to claim petrol allowance. Is this true? Car is currently on father’s name. Does this mean car needs to be transferred to son’s name? Can someone from PNB please confirm this?
Maybe this is unfashionable... but I'm feeling ok around Trump and his Economic Immigration ideas. For real Consulting anyway - it just means closer scrutiny (which we shouldn't be afraid of) (cont)
Currently interviewing for a position at UKG. Any one have feedback good or bad on the company?

Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Are there any free subscriptions or travel/hotel perks that ClearView offers that I haven’t been taking advantage of? Like free NYTimes subscriptions or anything of the sorts?
