For those teleworking due to COVID, when did you announce your pregnancy at work? I’m worried I’ll be passed over for opportunities.
Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...

Anyone letting their hair grow out and donating to charity after COVID ends? I haven’t gotten a haircut since before the pandemic and don’t feel safe to get one until it is over. For people who have donated hair before any organizations you would recommend?
I need a part time job to be able to support my family that lost most of their income due to Covid. I’m a first generation immigrant college grad, which for me means student loans and parents with unstable jobs. Any ideas what I could do to make some extra money besides retail?
Any talk of travel resuming at Accenture ? I am about to join as a Life Science Technology consultant and was hoping to get thoughts on if travel will be what it was pre-COVID (Mon-Thurs travel)? Thanks for your input!
Ladies, I’ve noticed (pre-covid) that when men introduced each other or even when they enter the room they always shake hands with each other - even if they’ve known them/worked with them for months. But for myself, I may get a handshake on first day but never again. And I find it annoying like do you not think of me as your equal or do you think because I’m a woman I want a hug?? Has anyone else noticed this, or am I taking this the wrong way?
Are Peloton bikes (and the app) really worth it? Do they ever go on sale? I’m considering purchasing one since I love spin. I am reluctant to return to the gym because of COVID. What makes Pelotons better than other brands?
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 ..
Have planned baby moon to Clearwater in March end . Finally pregnant after struggling for 8 years. OBGYN says it’s my decision to travel or not. What would you do ? ( asking cause of corona virus )
My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
Anyone else historically a star performer and being told their performance is subpar since COVID? Not sure if it’s the additional stress/ distractions at home with a 10 mo old, wfh burnout/lack of motivation or what, but most importantly, wondering how to get past it and bounce back?
Those of you who are waiting or opposed to the COVID vaccine - do you feel obligated to divulge your true vaccine status to restaurants, employers, etc.?
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.

Completely bombed an interview yesterday, and I’m ok with that. I realized how wildly unprepared I was and how I can make it better for the next ones I have lined up! It’s ok to fail and learn from mistakes. Also my kids were running around in the background so hopefully that wasn’t the reason 🤣
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.

Deloitte Human Capital Consulting I am currently a student considering my options for careers. I have an internship lined up for Deloitte this summer in their Human Capital department . From what I can see it is a lot of workday implementation/other hr softwares. This is interesting to me. But I would also like the opportunity to be involved in talent strategy, compensation and benefits etc. But it seems like this really isn’t an option. Could someone please provide insight into this role.
Hi everyone , I have an hr discussion with Siemens on Monday. With current CTC 9.1 LPA, can I ask for 20 lpa fixed component(I'll be joining within 30 days) will there be any joining bonus. If yes, will hr inform me or should I ask about it explicitly. Ps: I have offer letter in hand with 15.5 fixed + variable as per company performance from EY. 6 more interviews are in HR discussion or offer release stage. Any thoughts welcome
Interviewed at Big 4. Never discussed compensation, however when i filled out the online app I put a high but ‘safe’ number. They extended an offer with my original amount,is it too late to negotiate?
What’s our definition of “ghosting” here? For example, I don’t get mad about getting no response to cold emails. But not hearing back after I physically interview (or Skype) will make me furious.
When you express an interest in a Credit Fund to a recruiter, will you fall under the PE or HF interview path?

If you go from h1b to h4, but still have time left on your original h1b visa, can you switch back to h1b easily?
I need opinions on this. Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund) I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?
