Hey Freelance fishies! Just entered this bowl and also am relatively new to the world of freelance. I make 3D virtual tours. But I haven’t had all that much luck finding clients. At least not a consistent enough client base. Covid has made it complicated to stop in and talk directly with people and because this service is so visual, my experience with cold calling is that it doesn’t work in this particular instance. But I’m not getting many responses from emails either. Any advice?
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
Where can I order black cardigans? Any weight or length, just not cable knit. My elbows have worn holes in mine during COVID

Got a client who’s asked for a POV on how covid-19 will affect buys across ALL verticals & channels. Of course it’s urgent. Can we please share what our companies are saying? Teamwork time, folks.
When do you think things will get back to normal in the US? By back to normal I mean pre-COVID, even if traveling outside the US will be restricted
Hey all, Been out of work for about a year now, been interviewing and actively since being laid off due to companys budget cut. Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.
Just recently, we exceeded 1 million covid deaths on record globally. When the pandemic started, did anyone actually believe that the situation would become this bad?
So how do you feel the consulting life is impacting your wellness as you hop over the age of 40, I’m finding under Covid I’m much more healthy/lost weight etc.
Air Canada is offering refund options for a flight that got cancelled last year due to COVID-19. What’s the best option? Get a full refund, add it to aeroplan points, or transfer to AC travel voucher?
Trump supporters: will you get the vaccine, or is covid a hoax? Truly interested to hear your thoughts. Genuinely not trolling.
Any suggestions on paid / subscription services such as CNBC Pro for investment advice / stock research for investing? I am sitting on 50% of cash in my portfolio and would like to invest over next 6 months. I know I can’t time the market but trying to be better informed for investing 400K nearly. Sold nearly half of my stocks in Covid days for 5% loss. I follow all the market news daily but I feel like I need some paid / subscription service for better guidance but not on commission basis.
Safe to get vaccinated for Covid at 17 weeks?
NJ is going back to the classroom. Portland OR is not returning until January. It’s so interesting how differently states are dealing with Covid. What’s your state doing?
I bet the US Government would get Covid under control pretty damn quickly if major corporations suspended campaign contributions in light of the economic environment.
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hi, Post salary discussion I see few things: Basic and HRA are too low even lower then my current org. Is that same for you all? What is this Quarterly and monthly bonus. Are they paid every month? Do we get 100% or it's less?
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
How’s strategy& life sciences practice? Is it the same as PwC? How much of the work is commercial vs supply chain vs R&D? I’m about to interview for a M level position but the recruiter said PwC

I want to become an art director with zero design skills. I’m going to have someone else comp everything up for me. The ideas might be solid. Who wants to hire me?
Hi I have a real question that is going to cause a lot of controversy but it gets me so upset every time this happens. In casting and director searching, the request is always “non-white and female if possible”. It’s like I get more ‘brownie points’ for the most diverse person I can find. I don’t remember the last time I posted a casting request and was allowed to ask for white applicants. Isn’t this reverse discrimination? This can’t be the answer to equality. Am I crazy or unfair??
As a Desi born here, I would like to apologize on behalf of the USA for all the unnecessary stress and drama this admin is causing re: GC/H1B etc. You all don't deserve this. It's ridiculous bullshit.
CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary. Limited travel will still exist and maybe more at senior levels. Regional/local travel will be the norm. Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
Dow this year under Trump is down by 1500 points give or take. So much winning! The economic argument of the conservative seems to be fading. Come on guys fess up, Trump is clueless and so are you.
Has anyone on Temporary visa (H1B, DACA etc.) Applied for Global Entry? Recently got a job that may require lots of travel within the US and global entry which includes TSA pre check would go a long way. I am on DACA. Been in the US since I was 5 years ago. Any pointers would be helpful. Can't seem to find anything useful online as I cannot travel to India being on DACA
