If I weren't as young and healthy as I was at the time, I would have called 911 to come get me lol 104 fever for a few days, 101 fever few extra days. I took 3 days off for the 104 fever and the weekend. After it subsided to "normal" fever I was fine working 50-70% with Dayquil. Lost voice, smell, taste. Brain fog and fatigue for about 6 weeks. Team knew I was sick, didn't tell them it was COVID until after I returned to work. Was not rolled off and they were accommodating in making sure I wasn't working too many hours. Everyone was very considerate but I wanted to work through it tbh.

Rolled off a project?? Most people of working age don’t have much more than cold symptoms and fatigue. Very rare for someone in this demographic to be out more than a week.

I’m not wrong, I said “most”. Of course some had worst experiences, but that was the minority of younger working age people per the statistics.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Recent career-switcher here. While I’m a veteran with the ad process, I am new to the UX agile process. Is it normal to not use briefs whatsoever? Is it normal for the UX research lead to have a stakeholder workshop (sans designers) to think of concept “thought starters,” then have a separate meeting with the UX design lead to vote on which 1 of 3 concepts to proceed with? In advertising, this is analogous to the client and researchers doing the campaign idea then telling the CD to execute it.
