Currently live on the west edge of river north and looking to move north into LP/East Lakeview. Our lease is up in March, but want to take advantage of any COVID deals to get a larger place. Looking at 2br/bath if possible.
Did anyone get a COVID exposure notification on their phone today? Mine is dated for “7 days ago” so I’m confused
Apparently more than a few of my firm's associates moved to other states during COVID and are now quitting because we are coming back to the office. The wierd thing is that my office is quickly replacing those associates with other associates that moved here (a large secondary market) during COVID and refuse to go back to their (mostly NYC-based) firms. Is this churn happening at other firms too?
For those of you who had covid - what was the experience? How long did you take off? Was your team/client understanding? Were you rolled off your project? How did your firm support you?

Had our first Zoom happy hour for LGBTQ+ in Advertising last week! Tips: Frame it around a question or a problem to facilitate meaningful conversation (we talked about how to pivot Pride during COVID)
What did you do to break into consulting? I was asked this question recently by someone who didn’t do it right after undergrad and I could only come up with “networking” kind of answer. But it’s clearly more than that, especially these COVID19 days.
How do you handle a step child who is 23yo (doesn’t live in your house) and is chooses to not get vaccinated when they give their too young to be vaccinated siblings covid? Currently quarantined with a 3yo who tested positive. Certain my 1yo will too. Can I help a person in this age group see the impact that their decision has on the people who can’t get vaccinated? As a step mom, what boundaries am I allowed to set to ensure that this doesn’t happen again? Ultimatum or is this “not my place”?
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
Anyone here caught both the original covid as well as the UK strain? How different did you feel between the two?
As a fully-vaccinated person, what should I think about plans to meet with an unvaccinated person who’s recently recovered from “a really bad flu”(+lost sense of smell)/“definitely-not-COVID”?

Starting to interview for full time positions- how irrational would it be to ask to work from home one-two days a week if hired?
Curious to know if anyone who’s moved from EM/PL/AP MBB role is happy? Moved to an S&O role at Meta and I’m struggling to see much benefit other than better WLB/less pressure. S&O in tech feels second-class citizen (lower influence), work isn’t as meaningful, slower and less clear career growth, slower comp trajectory. Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.

Last night I decided to leave my husband over recurring emotional infidelity. We have a one yo. I’m worried abt how this will impact my career (I’m pretty early tenure) and don’t know how I could parent without a partner as a consultant Also worried about how this will affect my finances immediately (I make more and have more in my retirement accounts) and in the long term What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.
How much of a salary bump to ask for after a promotion from ACD to CD? For context, I’m an ACD making $170k in NYC with 8-9 years experience. This is my first ACD gig. My boss keeps saying things about how I’ll get a CD gig elsewhere in the next year or two and start making $250k, but that he’ll try to keep me here. So would it be safe for me to ask for $250k to become a CD at my current gig? I don’t expect them to match it exactly, but get close.
New-ish to the freelance world and in discussions with a reputable company for a gig. Problem is, they expect nights and weekends but don’t offer OT. Getting a day rate, not project rate. Sound odd?
