HELP! Roommate is being insistent on not allowing either of us to go out due to covid (except for groceries). We live in Chicago, and phase 4 is starting in a few wks meaning most places will re-open with limited capacity. I’m not trying to go crazy here and hit up every club/restaurant/public place. But I’d like to enjoy a meal out or a small gathering at a friend’s place, things like that (w/ all proper precautions in place) but roommate is not cool with it -how to approach?
Do you think companies will force employees to take the COVID vaccine when it's available?
Getting covid antibody test. Free through insurance so why not? Knock on wood haven’t had symptoms but I’m curious
Anyone use CBD balm for an injury? Have an injured shoulder that’s been rough for a few months and am not ready to hit up the doctor circuit with Covid risk present, anyone ever use?
I've seen a lot of posts around APA and utilisation. Please correct my understanding if I'm wrong. APAs are only for those who have tested +ve or are taking care of family members who have tested +ve and cannot be used for any other situation. If that's true and you/your family have defeated Covid, why the fuss over utilisation? P.S. plz let me know if there's another use of APAs I'm not aware of
My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
We broke 3,000 COVID deaths today in an awful benchmark that looks to be topped tomorrow. Don’t let any Trump supporter say they’re pro-life. Wear a mask and get tested. https://t.co/7cNPfiIuy9
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
I was hired out of my MBA to a firm that has now pushed my start date out 90 days twice since Covid. Am I doomed? Are any consulting firms are hiring right now?
Ladies! My husband’s birthday is coming up in 2 weeks..any ideas to make it special during COVID? He likes experiences rather than the materialistic things.
I’ve had a slightly sore throat and moderate fatigue since Sunday but no fever or other symptoms. Could this be Covid? Is it enough to get tested?
After 33 days on a ventilator, my uncle died from Covid-related complications, including pneumonia and multiple infections, this morning. My aunt couldn’t say goodbye in person and none of us can be with the family because of distance. This virus is no joke. Please be safe everyone and wear a mask.
I'm interviewing with a very small consulting company UK based (30 people half of them ex mbb). They just sent me 2 links: a assessment link and and video recording link. Does anyone have any idea what should I expect from the assessment and video recording?
Anyone have any experience doing an informational interview? Never done one before and not sure how to approach it or what to ask.
In your opinion what are the best media planning/buying agencies in NY? Agencies that have a great culture, good pay, solid outputs, personal dev opportunities, good leadership. Tell me it exists! 😢
🐠 who live or have lived in Chicago - how was your experience when it came to friendliness, diversity/racism, and access to Asian foods and grocery stores? I’m considering relocating to the South loop neighborhood - single person in their 30s, not interested in suburbia life
What's the best way to get an interview at FANG? Keep seeing all these post for FANG offers...so just wondering. My background is not technical.
Do people send thank you notes to interviewers right after interviewing? Have an interview coming up but don’t have everyone’s emails. I was taught to do this. Is this expected?
🐠: Going to start traveling again soon, and don't have status on any airlines. Which airline do you recommend I use, considering ease of boarding, available overhead space, etc. I'll be going to CLT
Got recruited for a Technical Account Manager (TAM) at Google - anyone have any insights on the role/salary/ interview questions?
Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.
Need recommendations for things to do tonight and tomorrow night in Boston. I am on-site - Boston downtown till Thursday. First time in Boston. I will most probably be solo (may be 1-2 coworkers but not sure). Want to explore the bar scene, and meet random people (like it used to be before COVID). I know most night clubs are closed on weeknights, so looking for next best thing. M, 30s. Tia.
Damn ATL back at it again with the sexy weather
A lot of companies put out ads or talked about policy or internal changes in response to the BLM movement. I’m wondering if, beyond the immediate ads and statements that were released this actually continued. What are some things your agency has done… or could do to make a real impact in the realm of Diversity, equity and inclusions (DEI).
