US citizen here, and I would like to move to Europe for a couple of years. What are some big named companies (other than big 4 & MBB) that will sponsor my working visa? I would also like to move early next year. Is that unrealistic though due to COVID? TIA 😊

What do you do when small local firms won’t give your resume the time of day, but everyone you ask for resume feedback on says your materials are fine? These aren’t big law or boutiques, we’re talking probably paying $20-30 an hour part time as an associate with firms of 1-3 attorneys generally. I know biglaw is recovering from COVID but has it really hurt small law so badly getting an interview is next to impossible? Any and every practice area. Work is work. Approx. 500k local population size.
Do you have to pay for your covid test? I was possibly exposed and went to an urgent care for the test. I have Aetna and they said it's free if ordered by the doctor.
How busy is your practice group since the onset of COVID? I’m a mid-level transactional associate. Practice was dead in March/April and seems to be surprisingly busy now. Hoping that means good things in terms of productivity going forward.
Race a determining factor in covid antiviral/antibody treatment eligibility in NY. How do you feel about this considering the lower vaccination rates of black/Hispanic compared to white? Eligibility: Non-white or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor,as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. http://www.mssnyenews.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/122821_Notification_107774.pdf

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Those that got Covid recently, when did you lose your sense of smell and when did you get it back?
Bicipetal tendinitis - which, it looks like I have been having for several months (first noticed 9 months ago), but did not realize it was lingering because I had not been lifting during Covid lockdown. Thought it was my rotator cuff, but PCP thinks it's tendinitis. Anyone have any tips or tricks for fast recovery, and approx timeframe from experience? Also any one experienced a misdiagnosis? Thank you in advance.

Hello. I work at a mid size erp/epm consulting firm and my base salary is not comparable to big4s. I currently make a TC of 105k with two years of consulting experience. I asked for a raise last month and now my TC will be pumped up to 126k at the end of year. I have been poached by many consulting firms and some are offering 135-150k TC. I have a masters degree in data science and 4 years of working experience. Does it make sense for me to look around even after I asked for a raise?
Anyone else feel like they have golden handcuffs? At 7 YOE, I just don't see any other roles that offer over 350k TC for business roles. I'm really grateful for my current role, team and comp, so definitely not a compliant, but feels like I'll be here forever.
