Me and my husband were planning to start trying to have a baby from next month. With this COViD-19 situation right now we are thinking of we should wait for few more months and see if the situation gets under control. Data related to CoViD -19 in pregnant women and new burns is very limited. Plus hospital visit during pregnancy and having family around to help out may be challenging if CoViD -19 lingers longer than expected. I am 34 and hubby is 37 body clock is ticking as well - tough decision.
How is the city doing mask-wise? Just got back from FL where Covid doesn’t seem to exist anymore and I’m taken aback by all the masking around the city still (particularly outdoors).
This might be a stupid question but... I haven’t been able to get a haircut due to covid restrictions in my city. All are closed and have been for over 2 months, my hair is a disaster and I have 2x mbb interviews coming up. I have 2 options really, shave the head (I’m ok with that) just leave as is and make a joke about it. I’m worried it’s going to look unprofessional the way my hair is now because it’s “unkept”. Am I being worried for no reason?
Advice for networking during Covid?
Okay since you’re all in a good mood, who saw the leaked celebrity hopefuls for the corona virus psa? https://oversight.house.gov/sites/democrats.oversight.house.gov/files/5.pdf
New COVID reports indicate that as long as you’re a celebrity, famous athlete or a multimillionaire, you should be fine.
I’m avoiding dating, social media and being in photos until I lose all this damn Covid weight. 😢 Been told I’m attractive, but I’m not feeling confident to get out there and show my face (or bod) just yet. 🐷I hate feeling this way and just wanna get back to my old size 4/5 again! 👙
MIL had symptoms beginning 12/13 and tested positive for Covid. She wants us to come over on the 25th regardless of if she still tests positive or not because it’s out of the 10 day window and she could “test positive for a while.” It’s only her and my FIL in the house and he is showing no symptoms. Thoughts?
Those with roommate(s) who might have different covid-risk tolerances than you, how are you handling day to day activities?

Anyone else have a wedding coming up that the bride and groom refuse to postpone? It’s a close family member and wedding is mid-august and I’m getting pretty freaked out at the idea of us ending up as one of those headlines “40 people test positive for COVID after attending wedding”
Any firms (not Guidehouse) hiring in the revenue cycle space right now? Seems like revenue cycle hiring has pretty much dried up since Covid started. Do we expect a boom once Covid is behind us or will it be a slow recovery?
Thoughts on the story Alberta paid Deloitte $625k to design their covid health app? They ended up repurposing source code from Singapore. Does Alberta not have digital agencies for this stuff?

So COVID is running wild, pay decreases have taken effect and you just found out one of the worst creatives in the building got promoted. How do you react?
Partners - I'm (SM5) an introvert and struggle to connect with people sometimes. Especially when I don't see them much (thanks covid) and don't work with them much. I want to build connections with like VP finance or the CFO on my job but I work mostly with the controllers (whom I have good connections with). I find it awkward to call people who I don't work directly much without out of the blue to do coffee or lunch.
Any tips or advice on how to build these connections? Any podcast or books
Our ICU nurses made cheat sheets for COVID care- they're awesome!! I'm keeping them on hand for future reference...

Currently in a full time role at an RPO but have a potential offer in house on a 6-9 month contract with strong possibility of conversion at Hubspot. Pay is $15k higher than I make now.

I feel like this anxiety is contributing to my mistakes.

Advice on how to correct employee without hurting their feelings? Emp is making constant and repetitive errors. I am not cruel, not yelling, not name calling, nothing like that, but I am short and to the point, no fluff. “Why did/didn’t you do this?”, “This needs to be fixed now”. I expect things to be done right and on time without me having to constantly double check or monitor them. Employee is complaining that I’m hurting their feelings. How do you handle when an employee screws up? Advice?
