Has anyone been to the UK lately from the US? What are the Covid requirements / restrictions? Thank you!
Best time to move to NYC in terms of optimal rental market conditions? I have the option to move there for my job anytime from March to Sept this year. I was thinking the timing would be ideal in March due to less people moving but prices are looking pretty high, I think inventory is lower than usual due to COVID. Any insights on the best time to move?
Does anyone know if the bright horizons payments during covid is taxable? Is there a tax form that I'm expected to get?
Anyone else have kids in school who are constantly being exposed. I have two and both have had multiple close contacts within the last two weeks. I’m currently on covid leave to monitor the youngest since his classroom shutdown. But my other got exposure notice again today. What are we going to do?
Supposed to go to DU in March. I’ll be in second trimester. There’s no mask policy. I got the booster in November but Covid in December before pregnancy. Would you go?
Are any recent grads happy in their jobs? Just started last fall and feel like I’ve received minimal support from my firm and not developing any real skills. Looking to switch companies but I’m not sure if it’s company-specific or just COVID in general
Any other teachers out there have issues with mold in their window-less classrooms? If we don’t have proper ventilation to prevent mold from growing on walls, how do they expect us to feel comfortable/safe in a potentially Covid exposed room?
I know it’s all been said before. I would’ve never expected to be in this kind of situation or that it’d go on for so long. Others have lost far more than I have due to COVID. I’m grateful for my health. But I still feel an insurmountable sense of loss from everything that’s happened. A professional opportunity I worked for years to achieve had finally materialized and then disappeared just as quickly. I feel isolated and hopeless, just trying to survive and one day see an end to the madness.
Any producers who switched from agency to brand side? How has it been? And what company or city are you working from (assume no COVID/remote work)?
Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?
Well that was uneventful Holding UVXY strong, if it gets crushed I’m holding it as a covid play and doubling down on linger expiries
So if I'm correct, PwC is the only Big Four that hasn't done a huge round of covid layoffs so far?
Currently in fed consulting but want to make the switch to commercial. Obviously COVID has thrown a wrench in those plans for now. But when all this end, any tips or tricks on how I could make the switch or any personal stories about it?? Only a year out of school so pretty new to everything!
Since bashing the government (during any administration) is par for the course, worth mentioning that the COVID test kit site is amazing. Takes 20 seconds to submit the order. Very well done and easy.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Another early Covid hero losing the battle.
Coming down with what is most likely a cold while on the road. SO worried about corona virus exposure given I’ve been in airports/planes, and possibility of passing it to small kids at home. WWYD?
I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?
