I live here and my family is back in India. I have 0 family here so should something were to happen to me or I were to get a sever case of covid or any other disease for that matter, I’ll be by myself. My parents won’t be able to visit in the current situation and I can’t be with them if they get sick . Seriously thinking if I need to move back to India but terrified of starting over. Anyone else feeling this or am I thinking too much.

OP - regardless where you are given the nature of the COVID 19, you will be by yourself. Even in India you will be put in isolation without family to avoid passing it on to your parents

Stay strong this is just bad time and will pass

Same. My parents actually passed away, and I have been in the US since I was 18. So all my friends and career are here. But this is an individualistic society. You find a partner and that’s it, you’re a couple and there is no sense of community. I find that my desi friends are more giving, considerate and generous, even though I love my American friends.

No but I get what you mean. Difficult to ensure the security of your family when you’re so far away. But stay strong and have faith :) the world will get through this.

Any tips on how to keep my plate full with work? I just moved from civil legal services to Biglaw as a staff attorney (9 YOE), and I’m looking for strategies on how to get work from partners. They know I’m new and I have gotten some matters to work on, but I find myself out of billable work by the afternoon (and today, by 10am). I check in with different people each day to ask if there are things I can work on, but what else can I be doing (that isn’t going to annoy the shit out of ppl)? TIA!

Hello Fishes,
My brother is a b.com graduate(2020 passed out) and looking for a job.
The problem here is because Finance jobs requires exceptional skills and academics due to which he is not able to get shortlisted for most job interview screening, he is receiving interview calls from great companies but not able to convert them.
If anybody can help even with an Internship position at their firm that would be a great starter to his career.

PS: leave a like so that I can send Dms across✌

Hi fishes,

Just need your guidance, my friend has joined a mid startup company, worked as an early web developer for 1 year but then in the same company the profile was changed to the marketing field. Having worked there for 1.5 years it feels like there is no work life balance and exhausted life. So, should change of career back to web developers is a good option or shall continue with marketing. Is it joining any MNC with a marketing will have a wlb or is there also the same struggle.
