Hi everyone! I thought it would be nice to get an introduction post started in this group. Please share with us how many years have you been working in the industry and how has it been for you post-Covid?
I am a HR Generalist making $70k in NYC -haven’t received a raise since I was hired (Jan 2020) and worked through COVID, layoffs, rehires, etc. I have also changed the culture, cultivated events, happy hours, etc. I am the only person in my department (along with my assistant) My boss tells me by year end they want to put me in that HR Manager role - thrilled but always contemplating what I see my comp as. In September I will make three years here. What should I ask for salary wise?
How are US consulates still claiming “limited availability due to COVID”? Coming to the US has become a total nightmare for all…
When do I call myself a second year associate?
Class of 2020, but covid threw a wrench in it all: bar was pushed last year to October and I didn’t get a job until March. I’m 4 months into work, but the 2021 class is about to take the bar now.
I feel I am finally at the stage of my life where I can start working on my startup. I used to have one before. Even though it failed, I was the most happy doing it.
Since I started working in corporate and since COVID, I have lost a lot of my connection to the startup community and have been feeling dull when it comes to trying to come up with ideas. What have you found useful when trying to come up with ideas?
What does your NEW operations look like due to COVID-19? How many early childhood Ed providers remain in operation and who is closing their doors?
How is everyone doing presently in the Oil and Gas world (mentally, physically, emotionally)? We appear to have survived one of the two "black swan" events, but COVID still looms.
Recently ended a 3+ yr relationship (were both mid 20s and living together for just under 2 years) bc of him buying an engagement ring yet not proposing and waffling about our future. After 2 weeks I brought up that there’s a lot of good in us that maybe worth trying to work on (counseling etc). He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
Does anyone have insight into the truck market? I read that truck prices are inflated due to Covid (more people doing DIY, hauling campers etc) but didn’t know if that was credible. I’m thinking about getting one soon but not sure if there are any market factors I should consider.
My husband and I planned to relocate a couple months ago. I got hit by the covid hiring freeze but he didn’t. He moved for his new role & I planned to stay in my job here until hiring picked up. Now there seems to be a “second wave” and I’m getting nervous. I’m hundreds of miles away from my entire family, a second round of quarantine (in my city) seems likely, and I’m stuck in a job I was anxious to leave a year ago. I’m so sad, lonely and depressed. I think I need to just quit. Any recs?
Optum compensation is very low, we received 3% to 10% in my team irrespective of rating 3-5.
Our team couldn't hire a manager for the whole damn year.
I've been working here for past 1 year. Don't join Optum Global Solutions.
When I joined OGS during COVID, I was asked to collect laptop from office, on my own expenses.
No welcome gifts either.
Waiting to resign after 31st March else they won't pay my performance bonus as well.
I left my apartment in the city to stay with my parents because of Covid. My roommate has asked me to pay half of utilities/internet while I’m gone. Is that fair? I understand paying my half of the rent, but utilities is based on how often they’re used.
COVID would be over if everyone had listened to Trump's very smart suggestion to inject disinfectant into ourselves. But the lamestream media made fun of him and told us to follow Fauxi instead.
COVID has really taken a toll on me. I’m exhausted right now and dreading the next week. I’m completely solo, not dating anyone right now, so I’m curious how others in the same position are coping?
I'm starting to think that maybe we should take a close look at this whole mask idea folks.
Pre-covid, was there ever firm vs. firm pickup sports? Would be interested in joining something like that after covid subsides.
Single people in a city still under lockdown... how big is your social circle? I feel like when this kicked off I was very cautious and responsible but even now I’m still not really seeing people. I think it’s highlighted how few proper friends I have, or how many I only ever really socialized with around drinking (I quit drinking just before covid kicked off)

My husband does not have a degree but immense sales experience. He has been in sales in the food and beverage industry for about 10 years now and wants to get into tech. I am in tech and have a degree so unsure if he needs a degree to get a sales role? So many places are quick to turn away great candidates because of schooling even if their experience surely qualifies them. Anyone have experience or know if their company requires a BA for sales roles?
How do you explain those parts of your projects where you made decisions based on intuition and not necessarily some quotable textbook methodology?
I’m a rather ‘organic’ UXer who is often able to achieve impressive results just by following what makes sense to me instinctually.
Oftentimes I might unintentionally mimic the same steps as some methodology because it’s just what comes naturally to me.
How do you talk about this?!?

What has everyone's experience with therapy been like? I feel like the therapy I go is nothing like it's portrayed in popular media.
I often just feel like I'm talking to a wall. I guess I was hoping that my therapist would engage me a bit more and try to offer potential solutions or activities that I could do to improve my RSD/anxiety/ADHD symptoms.
Happy sober Sunday y’all!!

Um...I’m getting weird emails from one of the Partners. He is asking me about whether I eat breakfast at this place he regularly goes to. I said yes and he proceeds to tell me about what he likes to order. Does he want me to order breakfast for him?
