Just started in consulting 2 weeks ago don’t really know what’s going on , which way to turn or hoe to prepare myself. The people seek nice but haven’t step foot in the building to meet anyone in person due to covid so it’s hard to truly tell. Haven’t been on an engagement yet just lost
I recently began to feel Covid-19 symptoms and decided to get tested (waiting for results). My husband took the rapid and tested positive. Meet the Teacher is Monday and school starts for my students on Tuesday. If I have to quarantine, I have no idea how this will work. Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.
After a bunch of poor options performance, through patient and risk averse stocks, slowly built up my profits to cover my previous losses. Happy to become green pretty soon after more than a year of wallowing in red. PS the big dip wasn't me, it was COVID. I cut my losses 2 dips before then.

So he tested positive days before the debate. Then miraculously tested negative. Then days after, he tested positive again and ended up in the hospital. After the fact, in his town hall with Savannah Guthrie, he said he never tested positive until *after* the debate. I’m sure it was all totally above board… and naturally, Trump says Meadow’s claim is fake news. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book
So everyone keeps going on and on about how awful “Karen’s” are but it’s the zoomers and my fellow millennials who are ruining the progress we’ve made against Covid...
I dont know about you guys, but the Naya Rivera news hit me hard.. and I didnt even know who she was. Dont ever take your life for granted, we arent promised tomorrow 🙌🏽 Makes you also think how we can get desensitised to hearing the # of DAILY deaths due to covid.. Remember that they too were fighting for their lives and have left behind devastated loved ones.
Is it ethical or safe for a fully vaxxed person to fly after confirmed, close exposure to covid during the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend? Does that travel pose a risk to others? Should they voluntarily quarantine for 14 days?

Thoughts about freelancing someone after you interview them as a trial run? Part of me feels like it’s an obvious way to really get to know how someone works, in a way you never would from just interviews. But I don’t want to commit a faux pas by asking. And I guess it would bias me towards those who are currently not full-time and are able to freelance.
Is it normal for new hires to be booked on a client for only a few months ? Does that mean you don’t have a permanent team?
I want to place a buzzword jar in our office space at client. Anytime someone uses a buzzword they need to place $.25 in the jar. If incorrectly used it's $5. Then we donate the money to education.
Bonus: - 7% Recent CPI reports: 6-7% inflation I directly sourced and did 80% of the legwork to get the partners a $26mm new account (where we had previously been fired in 2020) with a potential $9mm contract extension in 1Q21. Time to lateral back to financial advisory. Happy Thursday!

2 weeks ago I was asked by a partner if my PTO was flexible as a client sent us an urgent request. I stated no as I requested off 6 months ago. Today I woke up panicking that I jeopardized my career at this firm because I said no to being flexible of my PTO as a new college graduate and working less than a year at my current firm. Should be worrying or brush this off?

Best practices to write consulting resume? Leaving my firm and updating what I did as a consultant - should I write number of projects completed? What should the bullet points look like?
Starting my MBA this fall. Currently working in consulting and honestly can’t cope with these working hours & permanent stress levels in the WFH setup anymore. Any thoughts on going on leave as early as April / May already? Taking off 3-4 months seems massive but I’ll also have to move to another continent. Despite the money I don’t see any benefit in working at the moment
