Anyone else’s recruiters fallen off the face of the earth this week with the holiday coming?
Does charging time to “holiday” lower utilization or is it backed out of the denominator?
Best excuse to take sudden unplanned PTO
I need a vacation!!! Where would you like to go when it's safe again? Missing the Caribbean.
Denver Fishes - I need some serious help. I got an email from my future employer, Accenture, to get my i9 authorization done while I am here on vacation. The issue is that they need someone to be an authorizing agent, a physically present adult who can verify that I have the documents(passport card). This needs tp be done in the next two days. I don’t know too many folks here. By any chance could someone help me out with this? I can send you the info and coffee/lunch is on me.
Contemplating booking my parent's hotel for an upcoming vacation so they get my Platinum benefit (would call the hotel and say they would check in before me)... concerned I would have a work (cont.)
Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
Are there jobs in advertising (or out for that matter) where taking vacation time doesn't feel bad?
WTF Hill Holiday????

Anyone have success renting a one-way car rental for the upcoming weeks? All major car rental companies are showing as sold out no matter which location I select- which I find strange. I tried post holiday dates just to see but no results still. I’m not trying to go cross country, just NE to SE.
How much time off is appropriate to take off for a wedding? I want to take 3 days off on either side of my wedding (6 days total), plus a week the next month (7 days total) for my honeymoon.
Happy Monday - what's going to be the highlight of your week? For me, it will be my firm's holiday party.
Does anyone have experience with asking for a lower hour requirement and a proportional salary decrease? (E.g. staff attorney, counsel, etc.) I don’t have kids (yet) but I’m fortunate in that my husband and I both have great salaries and we talk a lot about “How much money is enough” for us and would just rather have more time off/more flexibility. Life is short. 💕
Was it a weak year for vendor holiday gifts?
It’s that time of the month and symptoms are so bad that I want to request PTO and take off for the rest of the day. What’s the most appropriate response to give to my male boss as to why I am requesting this PTO? Do I just be blunt or should I say I’m experiencing “lady problems.”
Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?
Took some PTO on a Monday so I wouldn't have to deal with the fact that it's Monday and everyone wanting something at 8am.
I have the next 20 days off from work and in an extreme lockdown in Germany. What can I do to stay productive, learn, grow/ build a hobby from home? I'm 25 and do not want to waste this vacation doing nothing at home
