About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management. Is it a good idea to start applying to different opportunities in case my raise/adjustment isn’t what I’m expecting at year end? Not sure how long the average job search could take...
What do unemployment benefits look like now? 450/week plus an additional 600/wk if it’s covid related? Is it taxed as income?

How to deal with change? 1 year out of college and living with 3 of my best friends, just talked about living together for next year but they are all moving to new cities. Another friend is moving to my city so I’ll be living with them but I can’t help but feel a little lonely/like a huge stage of my life is over. Any tips for dealing with this change? I guess I also feel a little guilty because I’m pretty covid conservative so I’ve turned down social outings this past year because of that.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
When your COVID-19 bonus comes through
Last year I lost a good job to Covid-19, so I had to take a job with the first company that offered me employment. I wanted to make it work but my boss is tyrannical and overbearing. I’m miserable working there. My question is: how I conceal my disgust while working with this person? What techniques can I put in place to handle his micro aggressions, while I find something better? Books, articles, ideas? It might take me a long while to find something else and I need to keep my cool.
Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
Managers, do you feel it's the stronger performers who are less likely to take advantage (book later morning flights and earlier go home flights)? I've been noticing this a lot from my mediocre ppl.

Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻

Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal.

Is it worth getting PMP, Scrum, CSCP?
I’m pretty sure the company (Fortune 50) I work for right now is copying/mirroring BCG’s slide format for slide creation among our Strategy team. We’ve had them do work before and I recognize the slide structure/tag lines/icons/ and word smithing in the slides I have to create/standards I have to follow and some of the deliverables they’ve given us. Do other company’s do this with other MBB’s/consulting firms?
