My grandma is nearing the end of her life, so I just booked a last minute flight home with cash. I am thinking of booking a returning flight in the next few days with points with United. I may have to cancel/reschedule...does anyone know if they refund points if <1 week out? I can’t find the answer online.
Anyone know if Sheraton Seattle has a lounge? Usually stay at one of the Marriotts there but switching it up this week.

Any H1B person travel to the UK from US in the last month and returned back stateside without any border issues? Planning to go to the UK end of December for a week. Also does the March Proclamation EO for entry restrictions from@UK apply to H1Bs?

Last week on my project and flight issues from hell today (and Monday). I'll really enjoy the bench time after this!
How do I know exactly how long I can afford to be on the bench? Been on the bench throughout January and it was slipping close to 90% as of 1/12, worried I don’t have much time to spare

Need tips from anyone in the Bay Area. Moving to San Francisco from NYC. Any areas are recommended? What’s the typical rent expense if you live alone vs. with a roommate? Can I go slightly outside San Francisco near Foster city for cheaper rent?
How do you all navigate a job search while working? I'm looking to move to another job and I'm currently in my first post-undergrad job. Finding it difficult to identify the most efficient steps to switch. Is networking the most important step? What is the most efficient way to get the interview invite?
Anyone know the TC ranges for the Policy and Government Relations teams at FAANG? I usually see Manager roles but haven’t seen much in terms of comp. Think 10-12 years of consulting/tech policy/Hill staffer experience in a HCOL area. I know this question is pretty broad.
Spending another day questioning every decision ever made. I don’t like being a solo practitioner in an area that is incredibly difficult to not only win a case but to get paid for your time. I need to find an area of law I can work in and make money (preferably not family or criminal law). I would like to find a partner to work with, but I don’t even begin to know how to go about it. I am regretting going to law and leaving teaching, but you couldn’t pay me enough to go back to the classroom.
Recently I have been exploring a career change but a successful first shot at IUI has me panicking about staying or going. Any lessons learned on how to approach this huge decision?
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
Have any of your associations put out a climate and culture survey to your union members? I'm hearing that there are many districts that have surveyed their members anonymously regarding assessing the climate and culture within their school community. If so, would you please provide me with a list of possible questions that you would deem to be appropriate and effective to gauge any possible issues? Naturally, the questions need to be without bias and completely anonymous. No Google forms.
Hi everyone! I will be going through my first whiteboard/case-style interview for the first time (I was converted from an intern to full time at my current company). This marketing associate position would require some level of excel knowledge specifically on Pivot Tables & VLookUps for email campaign analysis. What’s your experience with interviews like these, and any tips for a first-timer? Thank you in advance!
Planing on moving to NYC in the next 3 years with my husband. Been looking at potential jobs that I may be interested in for when the time comes and a lot of the ones I’m interested in says “big four experience preferred.” I work for a regional PA firm and wanted to see what everyone’s thoughts are. If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?
Now that many are returning to classrooms, does it worry anyone that thousands are coming into the country after testing positive for Covid and not even being quarantined or detained?
My H-1B visa transfer to D got an RFE. How long does it usually take for the BAL team at D to respond? I know the timeline can vary based on the complexity of the RFE but just wanted to understand a general timeline. Did anyone else get an RFE when they moved to D? What happened in your case? Did it finally get approved or was it rejected? Deloitte
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
Am I putting my manager on blast when the teams I work with ask the status of a project and I tell them it is waiting on the manager review? It is true and it has become a sticking point at this several times throughout the process.
