Planning a trip to Glacier this summer and would like to visit Banff while that way. I see Canada has random testing for even fully vaccinated travelers. Has anyone crossed the border from US to Canada during COVID? Would I likely run into issues? For context I am a US citizen and fully vaccinated.
Anyone have people in their life with COVID? I know 5, but none of them I have seen in person on months.
How often do you guys see your parents normally in non-covid times? Do you feel it’s too little much or wish you could see them more? In my 20s I used to see them every other month but as I’ve “settled down” in my 30s it’s been harder with distance and spouse so it’s down to once a quarter. Feel quite guilty and sad about it
Has anybody had rebound covid? I had first symptoms around last Wednesday, was symptom free by Sunday, but feeling sick today (congested, headache, tired). Is this a known trajectory/ has anybody else had this?
Just saw a social media post by a CCCO that makes it sound like he’s suffering through this new WFH routine. Jesus. Get some perspective. And what is so tough about WFH? So old fashioned.
What do you do when small local firms won’t give your resume the time of day, but everyone you ask for resume feedback on says your materials are fine? These aren’t big law or boutiques, we’re talking probably paying $20-30 an hour part time as an associate with firms of 1-3 attorneys generally. I know biglaw is recovering from COVID but has it really hurt small law so badly getting an interview is next to impossible? Any and every practice area. Work is work. Approx. 500k local population size.
To those of you who lost the ability to smell and taste when infected by Covid - how long time did it take for you to get it back? It has been three days for me now, but already starting to lose patience
Hi! I’m not sure if this is the right question but I’d like to be fitter. I’m 230lb and 5’8 so it’s really bad. Because of covid I haven’t gone to the gym, I have 2 weights at home. Any recommendations on workouts from home? Running or jogging hurts like hell so I’ve been trying to walk at least 5 miles per day, some push-ups and sit-ups. I have watched a few videos online as well. Thank you guys

Do Apple and Netflix hire for completely remote positions (tech roles in analytics) in the US. I'm on the east coast and don't wanna move.
Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
I might have to move in March and looking at how these prices currently are, this is crazy 😭 Got to spoiled with the covid prices
Which companies handled COVID the best? Lack of layoffs, prioritizing safety, being transparent, etc. I think this will be very important when we’re considering future job offers.
Staffed on a case in Shanghai starting this week - should I be worried about the corona virus?? NAMR here
How accurate are at home COVID tests?
Do you all prefer in-person church or at home online church? I kinda miss in-person church! It’s been a while due to Covid.

Debating taking an offer at a Tier 2 firm (have offers at Kearny and Oliver Wyman) but I’m worried about WLB… anyone have any thoughts on WLB at either firm? I’m currently at a Big 4 firm and have networked into a very WLB friendly team
Will remote work negatively impact partnership prospects for associates in a few years? What’s the best way to get your name out there remotely?
I’m a lawyer in B4 tax with 2 yoe about to make senior in June. Would it be foolish to throw all that away to switch into an entirely different practice area of law (not tax)? Would it be better to wait until senior to make that switch?
I want to let my project leadership know that I don’t like the role I have in hopes of changing my role / project. Anyone have advice on how to bring it up tactfully?
When do we get public transit to seaport?!? This is ridiculous, more clients are popping up over there and it's either ride the Silver line (blargh) and then walk, or just walk it. Can't expense Uber.
After I max out my: 1.) 401k for the year 2.) My HSA for the year 3.) ROTH IRA for the year What do people invest in after that? Whats the most tax advantaged way to save once you have maxed all of the above out?
Current employer (not ProtonMail) pushed relocation deadline to NYC to end of Feb (from end of Jan initially). Working remote for the time being. Given how things are in the city rn (omicron, winter, lack of housing inventory), would it be better to try shooting for late Feb move instead of sticking with original plan of end of Jan move?
What soap do you use for cleaning baby bottles?
McKinsey & Company salary range for Associate Design Director role? Potentially signing bonus as well?
Where can I buy a good flat / house for 500k in London? First time future home owner on a PwC Manager salary (it’s not much) but have savings from my time in the US + parents will help a little bit if needed for the mortgage I’m 25 so does that make me early / late to the party as it relates to buying property?
So if I'm correct, PwC is the only Big Four that hasn't done a huge round of covid layoffs so far?
A friend of mine is dealing with addiction in her family. Does anyone know of good zoom nar anon meetings?
Across all levels at Big4, how does salary compare between Australia and Canada? I've got 3.5 YOE at Deloitte (internal transfer into consulting, expecting ~$80 - $85 at Consultant). Considering a move next year. Looking specifically at Melbourne, but interested in any information. Is there also an appreciable difference in WLB from your experience? Thanks!
Is a financial advisor the correct person to talk to about, and strategize with regarding creating a safety net for a parent who doesn’t have one for themselves? I don’t have a ton of resources to throw at this, but feel something needs to be in place. Thanks!
Do you always follow up on a client request when you tell them you will? Sometimes I feel like they make requests in the heat of the moment so I say ok, don’t do it, nobody brings it up again and we move on.
