Just curious to know if Federal Contractors (like AFS , DFS, EYFS, PWCFS etc) are impacted by the shutdown or in turn forced you take the PTO?

Took a brief vacation; not much has changed. We just keep rallying on the averages. Today, we sold off into a buy level and have rallied nicely from there. 3390 is a short term target. We are getting overextended but could remain like this for some time. Check out the latest draw here.
Need to put in a two weeks notice soon but with the timing of the holidays, everyone is on PTO. Is it unprofessional to e-mail my notice? Should I call first to announce my resignation then send it?

Hi all, I’ve bought a ticket to see a DJ this Friday and I’m vaccinated. However, I’m planning to take a PCR test and flight in two weeks for vacations. Is it risky for me to go to this concert? I know there’s less risk in being positive but still! What are your thoughts ? Thanks !

Anyone had good experiences working at Axiom/Factor in a Contract Analyst role? Is the project-based work consistent? I hear projects range from 3-12 months. Any thoughts appreciated!
Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.
6 years work experience as a Senior Manager at Big 4 with solid project experiences/fast track promotions. 3.6 GPA top 15 school in business. 680 GMAT. Any chance at M7 FT?
Interviewed yesterday with D for a consulting role with GPS 2ish YOE and multiple internships with big orgs. Everything went great except the qualitative part of the case which was awkward because I was emailed a sheet that had partial info about the case prior to the start, but I was supposed to act as if I didn’t? Quantitatively went very well. One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢 Any tips on this last interv?

What do non-MBA undergraduate campus hires with 3 years of consulting experience make? PwC: SA1 makes 99k in NYC. Some are SA2s and it'd be 105k. Bonuses are shit so ignore that lol.
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
What are some of the crazy timelines agency producers are dealing with when it comes to getting campaigns from concept approval to launch? As things are opening up I am getting some crazy turn around requests where the laws of time and space are not invited to the brief 😝
