If someone gets Covid in my office but many floors above me and I’m fully vaccinated, am I still able to go on a bus this weekend to travel?
Just need to let off steam. My MIL said to me today that my husband must be really happy with me "now that I learned to cook". Omg. She told me not to bother applying for jobs back when I was because I'd soon be home with the kids 🙈 I have to bite my tongue SO hard. Just me dealing with this generational nonsense?!
Ad copywriter who’s freelancing outside of agency world, who do I ask for a reference/review from when finishing up a project? Project leader (who I had minimal interaction with) or day-to-day contact who is lower ranking but actually worked with me beyond the initial interview? At an agency I’d go straight to the CD, but this is a consultancy that doesn’t have that sort of structure.
Wow interviewing sucks, felt so good about one role and got to the last stage and the person interviewing me was completely lifeless and we did not connect at all. Great end to my week 🥲

I met a guy at the airport who claimed that he missed his flight as he was very distracted by people talking to his ginger cat!WTF!!
My agency just unveiled pension provision at the legal minimum as if it's a massive perk. Still lags everywhere else I've heard of. Jokers
What is culture like in PCS at EY NYC?
I've never gotten a flu shot. I'm not anti-vax, I've just never gotten one. I rarely get sick.
This is my life. I haven’t stepped back (partly because I don’t want to lose the autonomy and independence making a good salary gives me) but man I feel the rub so much more than my husband does. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/26/upshot/women-long-hours-greedy-professions.html
I want to become an art director with zero design skills. I’m going to have someone else comp everything up for me. The ideas might be solid. Who wants to hire me?
What might compensation look like for a BA2 role doing OCM look like as someone with 2-3 years direct experience?
Are there great Product Management exit opps for Big Tech or something comparable within Chicago and not only the West Coast? Most of the great comp packages I’ve seen are out there and so wanted to get some input if there are 200k+ total comp options here. Currently have 4 yoe, 2 in strategy, and a MS degree if that helps. Thank you!
Just a reminder to invest consistently. My gross salary for 2021 will be $85k and my gross bonus is $0. I’ve already increased my NW by more than my gross salary and we’re only halfway through.
