Two questions: 1) I’m pregnant with my first baby (16 weeks), any advice on when to disclose? 2) Does that timing advice change given our current COVID circumstances? I’ve been WFH since March, and while the Firm hasn’t indicated it’s going to require us back in, a handful of partners I work have started to mention it. I’d like to nip that talk in the bud and feel like a reasonable way to do that is to disclose. Thanks in advance for any thoughts?

I got a good thing going on at work. I’m getting book work all the time but I am ready for a promotion. Here’s the thing, I feel like they don’t give promotions out unless you have an offer.

Another dilemma is, it’s seems like everyone is hiring right now and they are all good opportunities. If I wait around, let’s say 6 months, I’m afraid no one will be hiring at that point. What would you do?
