Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.

Hi— I recently lost my job because of having covid for too long along with another disability that required me to work from home occasionally in a job that hated that (I know how illegal this is, I’m working on it). I’ve been in the hunt for a while but am having hard time staying afloat mentally after rejection after rejection. Does anyone have any advice? I’m bitter being in this situation to begin with but really feeling hopeless. Help!

If any of you ladies froze your eggs when did you do so? Do you wish you did it sooner? When do you think is the ideal age to do so? Are you more likely to get covered if you get it at a later age?

I am planning to start IUI cycle this summer and have booked Pfizer vaccine mid April. Two questions (note I recently recovered from Covid so have antibodies) 1) Have unverified maybe misconception that vaccines affect fertility. Any opinions on this?

Is this true?

QUESTION -When you have a great passion project / bottom drawer idea that you keep bringing out and trying to bring back to life - ie you’ve had it in a couple of agencies - who owns it? It wasn’t for a brief, and it was worked on above and beyond the general hours of work. And it’s never been bought.
