Should I be as irritated as I am about this? My small agency is old fashioned. For instance, we only worked remote for the 3 mandated months in 2020. I developed a sore throat yesterday so I thought I should work remote today, to not spread anything contagious. I asked if I could work from home. Boss says: "You're right about not being too careful. I might have to have you take a sick day instead of working though, just because I need to be careful about the precedent." Seriously?

When should I start applying to full-time positions if I graduate in December 2022? I currently have an internship this summer in consulting at IBM. And last summer I interned at the Federal Reserve doing compliance and digital transformation. I don't know if I will return to IBM, but I will decide on that based on the experience I have at the internship. However in the mean time I want to explore and see what other opportunities there are. Any advice on when and where to apply for full-time?

I’m devastated; I did three rounds of interviews, a weekend case, and I don’t think I’m getting the offer because I lack the finance experience. They just took the job off LinkedIn and just ghosted me. Does anyone have any insights into corporate development roles at strategics or start-ups? I would love to connect.

Getting sick of selling the market, watching it go my way, and then roaring back. So, I went back to revisit the daily. Could we be trading an extension long? Is that the reason why this market is going up? In Mid-June, we sold off to 2394 in ES. We can back for a 2nd test in early July but, rallied and we have rallied ever since. 3375 is the objective, 125 points away, and right at old highs. Do we have to goto old highs before a sell off? Maybe? Buy the 21 (yellow) and 51

Hi Fishes, I am really looking for some serious advice to cope up with a cracked tailbone. I broke mine during a horse riding incident. Now, I am getting seriously overweight, in fact, on the verge of getting obese, and this injury right now is pretty much killing the 2022 dream. I do walk right now, oddly at a slow pace, for about 3-4 km each day. If there any kind of strength training I can introduce in my regimen to err not feel all so depressed with the way I am in for.
