So I’m a Covid bride and decided to postpone my grand wedding to 2021 (or even later). We’re planning a mini ceremony in the woods instead set for this October. I just ordered this beautiful dress. However I’m not sure how to accessorize it. I want a pop of color but figured I could incorporate that with my bridal bouquet. Any thoughts on how to make this dress and look stand out?
I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.
Question: can an employer legally withhold your personal possessions after you leave the firm? I left my old firm recently and they were not happy about me joining another consultancy. They are withholding any belongings that I left in the office and have ignored my emails asking to arrange a pick up or delivery of my personal items. I understand the covid19 environment impacts the situation, but anything I can do to get my stuff back? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm pretty sure I have Covid-19. Getting tested tomorrow. Been having dry cough and now cant smell or taste. I have young kids who seem to be ok so far and I'm a single mom so cant isolate.
I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?
Should I still go to Majorca next week given the terrible COVID sitch over there? I’m very hesitant and need to make a decision literally by tomorrow morning
My dad tested positive for covid. We have ICICI Lombard from india insurance for him. I need to take him to hospital for further test as his fever is going up. Anyone had experienced this. How the hospital treat uninsured or people who have foreign insurance.
So what do we call the generation born in the next 8-18 months? Gen C(covid)? Gen Q(uarantine)?

So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.

Anyone else think companies implementing travel bans are just rising this coronavirus wave to cut costs?
Deep thought of the day: Wondering the Hantavirus will be more or less exciting than the Coronavirus?!?
What would you do if you got a job offer making 40-50k more than what you’re making? Same title, and would be a lateral move at a different agency. I’m really happy at my current agency, but they lowballed me coming in. Since I’ve started 2 years ago I’ve produced a ton of work, they offered me a small raise in March (only 15k) which got put off because of COVID and hasn’t been brought up again.
I started my first job out of college as an Engineer recently. I moved to CT and wow is it expensive here. My goal was to move down south in 2ish years but with Covid19 I figured to move earlier if the right job pops up. Only thing that is keeping me back is that my manager is awesome and a great mentor. I know that is difficult to come by in the engineering world... how long should I stay? Any advice for someone in their early career stages?
Who else is shaving their head bald at this time to minimize coronavirus spread? Won’t be client facing for at least a few months, enough time to grow it back!

Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
Anyone ever get their head bit off by a partner and got cut off from their work, but ended up better off for it? Tell me your story. I need it.
hi lovely people! my friend finished up an AD internship at deutsch and has since been searching. she’ll be visiting london, paris, & NY in the coming weeks and would love to meet with anyone willing!
how many of you will consider working from home more often when business settles into a new normal? will you also change your point of view when it comes to how often employees work from home?
Are there any agencies that have not gone through any layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts, hiring freezes etc? Shops that are, so far still financially functioning as normal? I know squarespace is one.
Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?

Anyone know what happens if your credits score isn’t high enough to get the corporate Amex?
Is an MBA really worth it? Making about 100K now in Advisory, and MBA is not required to move up. Does it really make sense to take a 120K loan, when I could probably buy a house now instead? 🤔
Associate1 in MO. With my recent promotion, I went from low70s -> 85k. Quite happy until an Analyst1 showed me his paycheck - 80k + OT. Am I getting screwed with pay?
