If you are laid off due to COVID and on h1-b visa, would you disclose to the new employer in the initial interview phone call itself about your exact situation i.e., laid off due to COVID and have only 60 days grace period left to file a h1-b transfer in order to continue stay in the US? Please provide suggestions.
Here are the official Coronavirus guidelines:
1. Basically, you can't leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.
2. Masks are useless, but maybe you have to wear one, it can..
I’m considering this politics on the categories of education and intellectual property rights...should this be taken down? It enables laziness by giving people a way out for not doing the work. https://www.forbes.com/sites/susanadams/2021/01/28/this-12-billion-company-is-getting-rich-off-students-cheating-their-way-through-covid/
I feel like in order to do well at my job I have to mentally shut down. Even with covid I can't handle all the work politics and mental gymnastics required to do the most basic stuff, esp as a woman. The longer I work the more I realize career progression is determined by how much your managers like you/perceive you, not whether you work hard. I haven't been able to get another job offer but I just want to be out of here 😔
Found this so interesting. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/19/opinion/coronavirus-touching.html?smid=em-share
I have lost all joy at work since work from home started. I look forward to nothing at work other than it being over. Before covid, I was excited to attack the day. Anyone else feeling like this?
Has anyone heard of the rumor floating around that someone from 200 Mech building was tested positive for COVID19. I sincerely do not want to speculate but trying to confirm what I heard today.
Delta was the best airline to travel pre-covid and all the more now. They are cleaning every aircraft by fogging, disinfecting all surfaces after every flight, filling upto 60% in coach and 50% in first class - no middle seat assignment unless you are a family and want to be seated together and mask mandatory on all flights unlike AA or United
Anybody have anxiety for the world rn? This whole coronavirus thing has had me spiraling into such deep worry for the world. I couldn’t sleep last night and it’s hard to get work done. Tips?
I was suppose to go on a date, but he did something that made my spidey-senses go off so I decided to stalk him on a state court database.
Found out he was divorced (meh), had a restraining order against him, was sued by his attorney, and was found guilty of 3 counts of sexual assault, including rape in the 2nd (she was incapable of refusing).
I told him I felt I might have Covid to get out of the date and then ghosted his ass. No regrets.
I went from low job satisfaction (before COVID), to zero job satisfaction, to now job creating negative life experience. In old days of travel, I enjoyed travel itself, client and team interactions which offset some job aspects I did not enjoy. Do you feel like all you do is work now?
Per million people, Sweden has suffered 40 percent more deaths than the United States, 12 times more than Norway, seven times more than Finland and six times more than Denmark.
The elevated death toll resulting from Sweden’s approach has been clear for many weeks. What is only now emerging is how Sweden, despite letting its economy run unimpeded, has still suffered business-destroying, prosperity-diminishing damage, and at nearly the same magnitude of its neighbors.
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
But the red states… can we please get some leadership?
Tested positive for COVID and am starting to have severe symptoms. My doctor told me it could be 10-14 days before I’m up for working. I told my boss this and he’s pushing back. Am I crazy?
Anyone know when the covid vaccines will be officially FDA approved? Could not find this on Google. How long does the formal process take?
Booked a trip to the Maldives for March 2021. Basically spending all my Marriott and AA points to get there. Should I go or postpone? Not worried about contracting covid as much as I am not being able to enjoy the trip to the fullest because of covid restrictions...
So much for healthy saying habits...

Interviewing at a few different places. How can I gauge work/life balance and overall culture at these companies? Obviously everyone is going to say they “respect your work/life and support you etc."
Single ladies, listen to this guy. He’s making me feel a lot better about myself. Maybe it will help you if you ever feel down. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLmWAye6mr1j0OByneQBzTg
PSA to leaders...have the tough convo with team members about body odor. I’ve had three instances in the last week of offensive BO by people at another major firm that my client commented about.
Been dating this guy for a couple of months it was going well until I recently found out he smokes up everyday. His family members are encouraging him to visit them as they think he has nothing to do here in the city with no friends or dating life. I think these are both red flags and I need to run but moral dilemma is getting me.

Dumbest thing a staff 1 has done?
My husband said he might be falling out of love with me, although he still loves me. He had me fly home to family to spend some time apart and with his thoughts (I don’t have family where we live). We know what I need to work on (a lot of it is driven by how I’ve been, and I admit that). He’s my best friend in the entire world and I don’t even want to think of life without him. God, I really could use your encouraging prayers, thoughts, and advice on what I can do right now... I’m a mess...

Curious how to transition into PE firms and if MBA would be beneficial at all. Currently been in M&A tax (doing tax DD, structuring and modeling) at a big 4 serving PE clients for ~4.5 years and up for manager. Feel tax is not as important in deals and want to get to the front end.
