My client is jean friendly. I usually wear dress pants but my all male team keeps asking why I don't wear jeans and encourages jeans because of the culture. Women's jeans are usually tight And probably not work appropriate and I don't want to wear baggy mom jeans. Thoughts? Are skinny jeans okay? If not, what is?

I got sick this week at the client site and I’ve been camping at the hotel. I’ve got a nasty cough, should I wear a mask on the flight? I really don’t want to get anyone sick.

Interviewed with a company, had discussions with two MD’s, a senior manager, and a senior associate. Now the recruiter has not gotten back to me. Am I getting ghosted? I realized I don’t have anyone else’s emails from the company.
