Project partner is fine as long as he or she can speak in detail about your contributions. Just ask the person to mark themselves as your direct supervisor on your recommendation

Agreed - I had my performance manager do my rec for Stern, I just provided an explanation in the “additional info” section of the app that my work was project based so I picked the best person who could provide good insight across everything I was involved in. Worked for me!

We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.
