Black Tax is something else. My in-laws that are back in Africa have a tendency of exaggerating so that my husband and I send more money. They had my husband and I worried all weekend thinking my MIL was so sick. Turns out she wanted money for a party to throw a friend and realized this was the only way we would send more money immediately.
What do you think teaching will be like after COVID? Do you think we'll change anything permanently?
Curious what firms are doing to keep people socializing during COVID. I miss my coworkers but I'm sick of zoom calls.
Hi Fishers, I have received Medical check mail from medibuddy from ,@Ericsson. Does that mean my BGV was successful?? Ericsson
I am so glad for this bowl. I think I have Covid and it sucks to use my sick days all up. If I said this in the main teachers bowls I would have a bunch of trumpers mocking me for being vaccinated and masking
I've had a rough two weeks. Have been really sick. And one of my dogs has been an A+ snuggler (and learned new touch commands to make my life easier). And I think my husband is tired of me raving about her. So I'm gonna rave here. She's so freaking smart and sweet. (And the same genetic issue that took away her hearing and most of her sight also gave her those gorgeous eyes.)
I’m so sick of teachers making excuses for not getting vaccinated. I got this lovely reply from a teacher in Washington because I support a mandate. I am almost positive this was the same person who claimed they had a religious exemption which I called BS on. I reported and blocked her ass. I should find another profession? Hell no, I’m in a high need field and rated highly effective.
If this ain’t sick funk than my brain needs major calibration. https://youtu.be/md9veYbl7wI
How do you feel about splitting everything 50-50 with your partner? I don’t feel as rigid about it bc I feel it balances out one way or another, but my partner feels as if he owes me if we don’t split 50-50 and I pay more. I get where he’s coming from but 50-50 just feels transactional and not intimate. For context: I make 3x more than he does and he’s still finishing his medical fellowship, so I don’t feel it’s a matter of feeling less than.

Why do some doctors get so defensive when questioned by nurses? I ask him to clarify a medication and dose (since it's a slightly unusual choice), and he acts like I'm questioning his medical knowledge. smh
Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.
Trying to pay it forward 🐠: brilliant rising Senior at my undergraduate alma mater [Washington & Lee] wants to take a detour through consulting before Medical School. I’ve given the real...[Cont.]
Hi Ladies! I’m a sales rep for a private duty non-medical Homecare agency and when making cold visits at hospitals or clinics to introduce myself I’m often not allowed in. It seems that due to covid they aren’t allowing un-scheduled visits and since I’m new to the area I don’t really know anyone. Anyone experiencing similar challenges? What other ways can I get my foot in the door and meet the key players to begin to establish those relationships?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Tech ladies that work in fintech: what do you wear to work, and how casual or formal is your dress code? Are they strict on makeup, visible tattoos or hair colour? I’ve taken a design job in a major bank, and am trying to figure what the dress code is. All my experience has been international consulting and freelance, and since Covid I’ve been only WFH. Nobody has voiced concern about what I’ve always worn, but I want to be conscious of the culture and not stick out too much at the beginning
Anyone who switched firms to strategy from technology consulting w/o going back to school care to share your tale?

Is anyone a part of ASCEND? The impression I get from my local chapter is that is more skewed toward tax/audit folks and also mostly internationals (as opposed to Asian Americans). Is this the case?
What is the Microsoft PERM filling policy? Is it initiated on day one of joining or is there a waiting period before you’re eligible? My recruiter doesn’t have this information surprisingly. I’m looking to make a decision on an offer, and PERM is a big factor! Thanks in advance! 🙏🏼
What brokerage account does everyone use and why? I have Robinhood and I am ready to take off my training wheels.
Hello! Luckily I have landed an Administrative Support Full Time job in a top university in Canada! I’m aiming to grow as a HR professional & want to see myself as an HR expert! I’ve come from a completely different background ( healthcare) but I have always tried to have transferable skills like interpersonal, relationship building skills, public speaking etc. My question is by accepting this job ( administrative clerk ) am I taking the right step towards HR expert in long term?
Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.
It's like he has access to my calendar haha
