Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!

A google horror story... Lots of data here, but the DE&I data points are around harassment, processing inappropriate behavior at work, & how some large companies may handle issues. Plus - Emotional investment in a workplace tends to negatively impact a person’s perception of and reaction to how they are treated within that workplace. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/07/opinion/google-job-harassment.html
H1B Folks: DHS is yet again trying to pass a new regulation for H1B folks in consulting firms. One of the key points appears be that some Batshit crazy proposal of the end client needing to apply for a work permit on behalf of the consultant. Unclear yet what the complete rules are. We'll find out more. On a Friday night, 3 business days before losing his job, Stephen Miller won't give up.

I feel guilty every time I splurge. I am trying to maintain a % of my income as savings so that I can spend the remaining guilt-free but can’t figure what this should be. Don’t get me wrong, I do splurge quite a bit, but just feel really guilty making the satisfaction from the spending much lower. How do you deal with similar thoughts?

I’m 4 years out. 1 year clerked and now I’m a 3rd year associate at a small (five attorney) practice. I’ve come to realize since I’ve been practicing I really hate the grind of retail law practice. I want to shift careers into something JD advantage or preferred. Has anyone ever had any luck with this?

Can someone kindly connect me with Investment Banking HR/Recruiter/anyone willing to help? My friend interviewed for Goldman Sachs NY. Cleared the HireVue but didn’t get any communication further. It’s been 4 weeks now. Although the referral came from a VO but the division is different. My friend is looking for Investment Banking division. Need to get in touch with someone from investment banking to push the resume. The rolling process is hurting the chances.Thank you Goldman Sachs
Is CLEAR security worth it?
