For those that have cancelled travel plans due to Coronavirus, did you just take the loss or were you able to get some money back?

Got most of my money back

British Airways

Epidemics as a rule are not covered by any insurance company or credit card. I have a fully pre-paid group trip to SE Asia in March and I have been told I will not get any money back unless the government officially announces restricted travel to that country

Government restrictions might be another story, not sure, but fear of travel is for sure out. Ironically they will cover the quarantine if necessary and care if you do get sick, but won’t help you out if you make the smart decision to avoid the situation entirely (yes, that’s how all insurance works, but it still hurts)

There are trip insurance options that allow cancel for any reason. The premium is higher than standard options, but might be worth looking into if you can still buy it.

Read the article. States that you typically have 21 days to purchase insurance from date of booking trip.

Interviewing for a position - I did a phone screen with someone in HR last Monday and she told me to send her dates and times of availability for interviews with the team. I emailed her immediately that I was available on Wednesday and Friday. It has now been over a week since I emailed her and still have not heard back (sent two follow up emails). What gives?? Even if she is still figuring out schedules, she should still respond back. What should I do if I still don’t hear back?

Hello Guys!

I’ve been interviewing for Data Scientist positions. My skills right now are almost average. I’m still learning to do better.

So I’m wondering if I should apply at my dream companies or no? Because I feel there are high chances of me getting rejected. After how long I can go for same companies again?

Will they even consider me again knowing that I was rejected only a few months back? Please let me know your experience and thoughts on this.

Hi! I currently work as a senior consultant but my client (a major bank) has made it clear they would be interested in hiring me full time into a product role (VP). If I want to eventually exit to a major tech company or small start up more aligned to my values (interested in health tech) but stay as a PM — is it better to exit now into this role or stay as a consultant? Anyone have any thoughts/ advice? I feel some pressure to apply, but not certain which role would be best for my career.
