Hi guys! 2 questions if anyone knows:
1. Can I have my home address be in a different state while my home office is in a different state? My roommates and I are thinking of breaking our lease due to COVID-19 since we’re all quarantining out of state. I’m currently on OPT and my H1B will kick in in October. I am allowed to work from another state on OPT but I’m concerned on whether updating my home address to a different state will raise concerns.
2. Can this out of state address be my home...

My mom is in her 60s, not very active, ambitious, and doesn't have a social life. I can see that the new lifestyle under covid has made her depressed and lonely. It's very difficult and sad to see.

How to handle the dual employment in BGV? I have a friend who have a overlap of 30-40 days from his last organization which is not disclosed in CV and with current organization. I feel UAN check will spoil it but his overlap is cuz he wasn't able to return assets back during COVID. Any suggestions?

I am heading into IVF and the clinic made us sign a document saying if one of us is tested positive for COVID, the whole procedure will be canceled. The testing must be performed at their site. My husband’s mom has been organizing a big family trip for two months. I already excused myself from that trip. But I am very worried my husband my get covid from this trip.

Husband tested positive for COVID while on a business trip this week. He’s coming home tomorrow and I’m terrified of catching it (am 31 weeks pregnant.) I am vaccinated and boosted.
We have a relatively large house so I’ve prepared a guest bedroom where he’s going to continue to quarantine but any other tips on staying safe that worked for you if someone tested positive in your house when someone test positive?
As a result of COVID-19, my husband’s job will be eliminated and we are thinking about moving to Dallas. Any insight on DFW agencies/opportunities/living in DFW are appreciated!

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
NDAs for Nannies? I was wondering how everyone who is doing some work from home during covid handles in-house caregivers? Obviously we all take all steps to protect confidential information and realistically a caregiver isn't going to be exposed to anything we do, but does anyone require an NDA just to be on the safe side? (I dont have an in home caregiver yet, but just thinking about it.)

I worked abroad as an intern during the summer of 06 in an African country. My assignment was to work with the local Government on corporate partnerships to help with water conservation. I didn't see the final outcome by the time I left. I later found out my efforts were reworked which led to a private company drying up most of the local community wells and loading stores with bottled water at a cost. I still think about it til this day, especially the friends I met who lived in the villages.
Are 3 hour interviews fair? I have 3 one hour interviews tomorrow and it's kinda turning me off from the company before i start the process.
What everybody dreams of doing...
Stumbled across the eBay black market for animal crossing goods. Some villagers or items are going for hundreds of real world dollars 😳
Im a fourth year partner. The clients are good, workload is manageable, have a great team and a great boss. But I'm just not motivated to go and kill it anymore. It just feels more of the same thing. Also, I keep having a feeling that I could be doing a lot more if I were in a startup or in a different corporate role. The only reason that stops me from doing any of this is that money here is good and I worked really hard to get here. Any advice?
