Looking for ‘outside the box’ business development ideas during Covid... something to offer clients and potential clients besides industry alerts and virtual CLEs. Anyone doing anything interesting?
Not Covid related, but: Cities you moved to and felt hard or easy in making new friends?
The anecdotes from covid patients are so similar: they had no choice but to work, risk exposure, and then they suffer the result. It exemplifies our inequality
COVID vaccine reactions? I got shot 1 of Pfizer on Friday. For me I had a sore arm for two days and was extremely tired. I’d love to hear others who got JnJ or Moderna.
Coronavirus has really made me start to think about and value the simple things in life
Q for the people that like WFH and never want to go back - what is your living situation? I hate WFH and can’t wait to be back in the office, so curious if other people have adapted better or if their environments are just more conducive to being successful (house with home office and family vs being alone in a 1BR apartment).
Anyone know the details about any lists in DC/Arlington for extra/leftover COVID vaccines? Keep hearing about lists that sites are keeping that they call thru at the end of the day to make sure all the doses are used.
What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
Remember when COVID was a thing?
Anyone in big 4 considering making a switch at this point? I want to quit my job every day but the uncertainty due to covid keeps me from doing it.
How is the city doing mask-wise? Just got back from FL where Covid doesn’t seem to exist anymore and I’m taken aback by all the masking around the city still (particularly outdoors).
Feeling lonely and hopeless at home, so I started painting to express my feelings: Hope in Covid19. Stay strong! There are many things worth to try when you have so much time for yourself. 😊
I just saw on CNN that teachers and school staff can all get the COVID-19 vaccine if you go directly to drug stores in your area that have the vaccine. They have been given directions from the federal government to vaccinate public school employees immediately!￼
Got a new work phone during covid so they didn't ask for the previous one back. Got a new job and they still didn't ask for the previous one back when I resigned. I want to give it away - is there a way to remove the company management services?
Have any of you low key fallen for someone hard during virtual covid dating? ok just me? 🥴
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Did EY’s Super Bowl commercial just insinuate that you should question the COVID vaccine?
My Covid antibody test was negative but I swear I had Covid before.....I don’t understand this virus
I recently tested positive for COVID. Luckily I feel fine and am working/quarantining at home. However, I told my roommate and she refuses to get tested and is still going into her office on a daily basis (staunch conservative that says she feels fine and has no symptoms). This obviously infuriated me and led to a big fight but she won’t budge. How should I handle this...?
My wife and I are both COVID positive. Anyone who has it knows that it is a battle. Some morning you wake up feeling good and a couple hours go by and you’ve been hit by a train. Not good for solid chunks of working time. Plus, if you extend yourself too much while feeling good, the negative side is that much worse. I tried explaining it to the senior partner I work most closely with and he said “you will do anything to get out of work.” I am a hard worker who gets everything done correctly and
Anyone in Anthem’s Strategy Consulting (ASC) group that can give insight on the company, role, culture etc.
I want to move to a remote fishing village in SE Asia and live out my days without excel or ppt
I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.
Attending work events while on leave: Hey 🐠 - is there a consensus on whether or not to attend events like the office holiday party while on a LOA like Parental leave? Is it weird?
I’m seeing so many graduates from the U.K. advertising schools with LinkedIn resumes full of 1-2 years of ‘Creative Placements’ at the big agencies. Is it really normal to intern for that long?
1 week to prepare for a case interview at a boutique firm, never cased before. Is it possible?
Any word from Deloitte on bonus and promos?
I saw a post about getting the vaccine and many responses. This article has good info about the vaccine I believe. Just read it. https://www.advisory.com/en/daily-briefing/2020/04/13/covid-young-people
Getting Laid 👍 > Getting Off 👍 > Getting Laid Off 👎
While working through this pandemic, has anyone else realized that biglaw maybe isn’t for them? The partners will do anything to protect their partnership share at their associates expense.
Feeling burnt out and fed up and it’s not even busy season. Can’t quit because I need this job for money and didn’t get any offers while interviewing 😩 just venting
What is the going rate for a recently promoted tax S1 non specialty practice, looking to jump ship at big 4? HCOL Northeast.
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
For the love of god, please let me deactivate incoming video feeds on Zoom when I’m on my mobile, otherwise I need to constantly move the presenter’s feed around to view a complete slide. Teams do that, and I don’t understand why Zoom, with its terrible UI, doesn’t allow that. And since you’re at it: make it obvious that you’re muted or not (with a discreet overlay sign for example)
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
