I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?

I’m leaving my firm, and a prospective employee (who went to my law school and is actually unknowingly applying to fill the position I’m vacating) reached out to me after her interview via e-mail to ask about my experience at the firm. Can I contact her to answer her questions about the position? I can’t see why it would be a problem, but something is giving me pause and I can’t put my finger on why. Thoughts?
Any pregnant people, have to have awkward conversations with friends about not hanging out? My bff is an amazing person and loves my 2 year old to death; but she’s also out a bars and living life as if it’s normal. She doesn’t know I’m pregnant yet, and is asking for moving help and sleepovers and stuff. Of course I want to help her any way I can, but am also slightly worried about being around her due to covid and being pregnant ..

I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?

I obtained a Amex Cent card 7 years ago, considering dumping it but it's hard knowing I won't be offered it again. Am I an idiot wasting the fee?
How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn. I feel like because this language is so limited in words to understand our culture, it restricted several generations to learn beyond what we know today about our country and culture. I feel cheated 😭😞
Another final round interview today that I thought went really well. Time to constantly check my phone and email and not get any work done / get my hopes up...
