I am feeling some depression due to COVID and I want to move back to Hyderabad to be closer to my parents, but I'm worried about looking for jobs outside. Any advice?

Outside of where? I would hold for a moment and see if we can get past this wave and then try.

It is a fear of unknown. The more you will think about it, the more depressed you will become. Stop thinking and start taking actions. Start looking for jobs for Hyderabad. You will either pass or fail, if former good for you. Even if you fail mentally you will feel better that at least you tried, this will be much better than constantly staying in a state of what if?

TC1 is right. Depression has a way of making you feel like you've failed before you even try. Taking tangible actions to make your goal a reality will help, just try to take it one step at a time so as to not become overwhelmed.

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?

As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.

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.
