I’d you have the skills needed by a company, nothing has changed...if you are just one more auditor, then it could be competitive as many people are applying for the same role.

My job search was quite easy honestly. In Canada but within a month I had a few places to choose from leaving from Big4

Thank you for the response, that’s a great position to go into as an S1! Sounds like you are getting a ton of good experience that isn’t just plain G/L accounting. That sounds like something I would like to get into, going to look at some smaller companies, thanks for the insight!

Our district does not give sick days if a teacher has Covid so if a teacher tests positive, that teacher must use his or her own sick days. If a teacher gets Covid or tests positive, 10+ sick days are gone because of district policy. Some teachers have lost 20-30 days because they tested positive 2-3 times even though they have no symptoms. Because of this, some teachers have stated they will not test and will just come to school unless their symptoms are too severe.
