Just got told I’m being let go. I have had long Covid but have been finishing all my assignments and meeting all deadlines. My work hasn’t suffered as result, although they are are insisting this is why are asking me to leave at the beginning of the holidays. What are my options? Advice, suggestions, comforting words welcome. Feeling a bit lost.
Always thought I would be with a NYC guy on fun, fancy dates in my future. Realizing now that everyone wants casual there, and in my hometown (here for covid), I make significantly more than most guys I go on dates with, many haven’t gone to college, but we have more similar interests and they are interested in a serious relationship. It feels like I’m settling and I’m so jealous of the people who do have the fun, exciting life in the city I dream of.

My brother and sister in law put their five month old in daycare for the first time on Friday. Yesterday they get told by the daycare that there was covid exposure, so they test him and he’s positive. So he literally got covid on his first day at daycare. No symptoms yet but wtf. We saw them on Saturday with our two week old so now we are freaking out that the two week old could have it (my mother in law literally used the other kids burp cloth to wipe my kids face when I wasn’t watching).

Anyone with India employment knowledge/experience? Looking for insight into the following: - How common is life insurance as an employer provided benefit and has anyone tried to get quotes on this recently?

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.

There's a major QSR i recently got an offer for, and someone who interviewed me said I can ask him any questions I had. I noticed he came from consulting and so I'm curious to ask him which industry is better and what the similarities are between this role and consulting. Should I ask him that or is this HR bait?

I’m a junior attorney at a boutique transactional firm. It’s a pretty small office and I only started in April. I’m having drinks with my mentor — a female partner — this week and I want to have a frank conversation about compensation. I know I’d benefit a lot from knowing her salary, how much she works, how much business development she does, what she brings in from profit sharing, etc. I always share this info when asked but still… Any suggestions on how to tactfully ask about this?

Get a different job? Anything else I could consider?

Can you provide advice to succeed/survive on the corporate client side? Moved away from agencies to corporate and it is SOUL SUCKING. Between the lack of flexibility (both personally and day to day), sterile environment, and millions of meetings a day I am going insane. The pay and benefits are dramatically better in this corporate role, but I won’t lie I am missing the freedom of agencies so much right now.
