Fishbowl Live Co-host Opportunity: Are there any moms who are interested in co-hosting and sharing their perspective on their experience of handling their kids and education during the pandemic? The Teaching Community Bowl is hosting a Fishbowl live at 7/19 @7pm EST called "Teaching Post Covid," where they will dive into the experience of teachers during and post the pandemic, and they want to bring on the perspective of the parents as well.
Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
I am at a point in my job search (2+ years, laid off 5 months before COVID) where I’m really starting to think the career I have chosen doesn’t want me back. I worked in HR previously, and I have no idea where or how to start figuring out a new career path. I’m stable money-wise for now. But with the student loan repayments coming active again soon, the money situation will get tighter.Any advice on changing careers after 40? Much appreciated!
Venting: My SO is unemployed due to COVID and I’m working 60 hours a week lately. SO is mad that I spend so much time working and it’s creating a lot of tension and I’m about to be over it. I don’t think my SO ever noticed how much I work and I don’t feel like explaining it. I like my job and what I do. I’m just frustrated.
I am planning to start IUI cycle this summer and have booked Pfizer vaccine mid April. Two questions (note I recently recovered from Covid so have antibodies) 1) Have unverified maybe misconception that vaccines affect fertility. Any opinions on this? My developing country family is freaking out and suggesting I vaccinate after I get pregnant. 2) My donor is fully vaccinated and did Pfizer, another rumor that it’s better that parents have same vaccine? Is this true?
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course). I’ve created a market research survey for the concept and this group is the perfect target market to provide thoughtful responses. I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2

Told fwb I’m really freaked out by COVID and don’t want them to come over. They’re pissed. Am I being unreasonable?
I’m young and food at the office is important to me but weird to ask if it’s back with covid to the people you’re interviewing with. Do you know if LinkedIn’s nyc office has started food in the office again or will in the fall?
I was impacted by Deloitte's COVID layoffs. I was a first year so I only have 10 months of experience with Deloitte in audit, I interned with them too. I have a MACC degree 1.What are some good exit opportunities that I can work with given my experience? 2. Should I apply to positions with Deloitte if they just laid me off?
Has anyone gotten a travel exemption due to clinically diagnosed anxiety? Curious how I should go about this because traveling post covid is negatively impacting my well being. I’ve been remote for the past almost two years now, so clearly I can get the job done without being on site. Any help is appreciated.
I saw a post about getting the vaccine and many responses. This article has good info about the vaccine I believe. Just read it. https://www.advisory.com/en/daily-briefing/2020/04/13/covid-young-people
One of the most emotionally deflating aspects of COVID has been that I don't have anything to look forward to. Vacations, outings with friends, family get-togethers, etc. I am tempted to book a trip to one of my normal vacation spots 🌺 for May 202 since the flights are so ridiculously cheap that even if I cancelled I wouldn't care but it puts a carrot on the calendar for me. Anybody else doing the same? Anybody betting on dates we can safely vacation and booking in advance now?

WFH week and my usual mon AM flight was cancelled (yes I checked....) small consulting win! 👍🏻
I know all the salary posts are annoying, but I really think I am underpaid. What’s your salary for consultant level B, FS SE?
I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?
Considering Facility Administrator at Davita? What’s the pay? How many of these panel interviews do you have to complete?
Just heard my H1B petition was approved. Visa will be valid starting Oct 1, 2021. I am also scheduled to get promoted in October (unsure of which date exactly). Hypothetically, if I get promoted from Account Coordinator to Account Manager I on Oct 5, after my H1B kicks in on Oct 1, how would this work logistically? Planning on going back to home country and also getting the visa issuance in Dec. Similar experience, anyone? Appreciate your input.
