Happy Thursday everyone! I know that as a profession and especially during this unprecedented time we constantly experience and are bombarded with negativity. Including the negativity in our lives away from work, which we see every time we get on social media platforms, or watch the news etc... therefore I thought we could put some positivity out there today and share some positive experiences that have been a result of this wfh/quarantine/pandemic.

One positive for me working from home, has been the opportunity to spend these months with my children which otherwise I would miss out on by spending the majority of my time at the office.

Got a puppy (German Shepherd) and had time to bond and train him up. It has been a great experience and I don’t think I have ever been closer with a dog in my life (many, many dogs in that life time).

My Husky is Zeus and my GSD is Hades. Zeus will do basically anything for a treat, lay down, sit, roll over, “jump” off the fence by running at it and essentially wall jumping, fetch, catch, you name it. However, when he wants to stop or the treats run out I can’t get him to move. Hades is a pup so he is just learning the basics but he is eager to learn!

My cat is extremely pleased that I’ve not left the house since March. We have been best buds since law school and he’s getting old, so it’s been really nice to reconnect. 😹. Also, no dry cleaning!

I’ve been home for my son’s first roll over, first crawl, and many moments that may have otherwise happened at daycare.

Quality time with my parents and 3 brothers right before my brother goes away for college. It’s almost like I got to know them all again. (I’m the oldest and have been living in another city for a few years). We’re a very close family but living under the same roof has helped us get to know each other now that we’re all older.

I just received a job offer for a position that better aligns with my skills and education. It’s also something I want to do and would get me out of banking, so to speak. The proposed salary offer is only 10% more than what I am making now, though. I currently have a fully remote job and have tons of free time and flexibility. I love my current job as it affords me time with my kids and it’s stress free. The new job is in an office setting and will have more responsibility. Not sure what to do?

I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?

Prefacing this with the disclaimer that I only started several months ago so maybe I’m missing something Definitely was interested in the “consulting lifestyle” during recruiting but I think if I were given the choice I would do remote forever with a big reason being that I think I have more time for stuff I like. If I have downtime now I can ride my bike, go hit golf balls, cook, whatever which would not be options if I were traveling or even just working in an office. Thoughts?
