Fun fact for those that are lending USDC stablecoins: apparently, one of the perks of the new BlockFi rewards credit card is that they add 2% to your yield. 7.5% + 2% = 9.5% interest Let's hope their engagement with the state of New Jersey goes well.

H1B folks, I am in between switching jobs. New firm has filed for H1B transfer in Premium, awaiting approval. I have my i797 with current firm approved until 2023, but pending passport stamp. Have to visit my parents for a week or so. Is now a safe time to make that 1-week travel from Visa standpoint? Of course, I will have to get stamping done as well.

Leaving the company. Losing my points if I don’t cash them in or transfer them. Know how long before they close my account and the points are unusable? I was hoping to take them to my new company. But who knows how long that will take to set up.

What is the best Hilton in Orlando. We have stayed at Hilton Orlando and love it but am wondering about the others. Lake buena vista or bonnet creek or Waldorf? Or maybe doubletree?

Inspired by the q of what firms are doing right, what are firms doing right for first year associates? Midsized firm, fall 2020 start class delayed to Jan 2021 but some started Nov 2020 to help the business group. Covid meant no "welcome to the firm" happy hour, but I think some got a wine gift box and some got nothing. New fall class just started so I hear the fall 2020/Jan 2021 class is feeling salty/forgotten. What have firms done for first years/ideas to make covid class feel welcome?
What’s with all those boutique investment banks making their analyst take the same LinkedIn profile pics with the same background?
Any current or X-BCG Platinion folks willing to help me out? I’ve never gone through a case interview. Everything online is business focused and I was told my interviews would be IT. Willing to pay for your time. Thanks so much in advance!

What measures has your company taken to minimize losses due to covid? We were forced to take 6 days leave in April (bovenwettelijk) which was kind of a weird move. I don’t think our bonuses are getting cut this year so if it’s my bonus or 6 days leave I’d gladly take the latter.
Question for Goggins & Jocko Fans: How do you use their messaging to get you motivated on work related activities - such as delivering quality work, finishing that slide deck or prepping for an interview? It appears that they are more geared towards motivating the couch potato in to exercising. I wonder how Jocko would handle consulting life :)

Has anybody on a TN visa (or other temporary visa) started a US retirement account? 401k, IRA, etc? I’m currently putting my savings in a normal investment account as I don’t know what happens to retirement accounts if I have to leave the country. Any advice?
