Do any fish out there have excoriation disorder (chronic skin-picking)? I acquired this really bad habit while WFH and am starting to fear that I will not be able to kick it before going back on-site. My finger tips are always bleeding to some degree or missing skin lol. Might freak the client out. Would appreciate advice if anyone has kicked this habit.

Any advice for those really struggling with motivation and tiredness? I’m split across three modules and feel constantly tired and unproductive. With WFH I’ve got into a bad habit of taking naps during the day, and trying to cram the work in the evening, which is somewhat okay for getting through the day-to-day, but I feel like it will all come crashing down soon, plus it leaves no time to do anything I enjoy.

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
Got an offer from EY India with 110% hike on my 6.9 CTC. But location is chennai because it's the client location as well and as per their director's communication with me it will be remote as of now and they can change the location later. Shall I trust them ? And how is work from home policy in EY India especially before pandemic? Shall I switch or stay back?

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!
Asking for a upcoming college grad friend - what are your thoughts on tattoos in the workplace? If they have a small tattoo behind their ear, would it be best to just get it removed? I’ve only been working for a year and it’s been 100% remote so wanted to get some opinions
Have to give my two weeks tomorrow and I’m super nervous. I love my boss. It’s an awful time for me to leave. my team is really under-staffed right now. However, I got an offer that is a really large pay bump and is in the city I want to relocate to (my current job is remote so idk if this really makes it any better). I’m just nervous that my boss/other team members will guilt trip me and that my last two weeks will be awkward/unpleasant. Any tips?

India: Are there anyone who applied for PF Advance (COVID) twice? I’ve availed it once but skeptical if I can apply again. Please shed some light!
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.

Hi! I found a Salesforce position in corporate development that I think I'm an excellent fit for! Is it best to apply through a referral?

Any advice is greatly appreciated! I seriously think this is my dream job :)

Anyone notice how IBM is recently winning a ton of "best places to work" awards? Most are all pay to play. After having worked at IBM, I can attest first hand to its horrible culture and many poor leaders - it's is NOT a best place to work. Just causes me to question the validity of all of these public awards and recognition.
