Gospel Driven Work In The COVID-19 Crisis
Little bit of a rant: I’ve been having trouble over the past year convincing my mom to get the vaccine, culminating in a screaming match today.
Her main reservation is that she is scared of the side effects, even though the rest of our family and her friends have gotten it. She also has some preexisting conditions that would make catching Covid that much worse. Her doctors have also green lit the vaccine. At this point, I don’t know what else to do….

Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise

I have 7 years of experience working with big pharma companies. I am used to communicating nicely, politely, respectfully. The same way I want to be treated. No issues. But I recently had some feedback that I might be too nice and I should be more professional with my coworkers, especially my manager. I already get anxious and overthink every email and chat. Should I work on this?

I had a call with one of analysts this morning who is a newly divorced father. I saw the impacts it has carried into other facets. I’ve been there and I know it isn’t talked about often in our line of work. To anyone else struggling with this or has struggled with this in our profession, it may not get easier but the coping does. Never stop seeking positive outlets and support networks. We’re here.
