Freaking finally. That email on Friday seemed to walk back the original WFH message, glad they’re taking a firmer stance

Kinda 2 weeks too late but better late then never? Although they may do it to save face since there is a *potential* national lockdown happening this week (I’m not just going by rumors but all signs and news conference show a high probability)

Now if Julie Sweet from my firm could take a similarly strong stance I would be equally happy.

Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
