I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan.
When I’m busy at work, I’m anxious about doing everything correctly and on time. When I’m not busy at work, I’m anxious I’m going to be fired for not being staffed. It’s a vicious cycle. 😵💫
Ladies… has anyone ever/or is working 2 full time remote jobs? How did you manage it? Any advice?
I have two amazing offers (different industries and time zones- ones east coast the other is west coast)
I know this is frowned upon sometimes but i think this is a safe place lol. Given my current life situation, finances and career- this makes sense. At least for a year till I’m in a better situation.

I am hoping to get some advice. I am in my 30s with 1 child, good career but remote. I am struggling to have friends… and network opportunities. Right now I would need friends that are in same life stage as me:kids, jobs ect. I do go to a church group but it is very hard to make meaningful relationships. Child is in special education so its hard there too to meet other moms bc their kid is in therapy too… i want to change my life.. this is never what i wanted/imagined for myself…
So just throwing this out there. Can agencies give us WFH bonuses to cover the cost of setting up a home office? I had to invest quite a hefty sum for a desk, office chair and upgrade my wifi connection. Also, can we deduct our work space rent area for tax purposes? Every little bit helps!

Those of you who moved on from being a teacher and into the Ed Tech world, where did you find your jobs? I’ve taught science for 11 years and worked as camp director / program manager this summer. I’ve easily applied for over 50 remote jobs but never hear back from the various companies. Has the hype around teachers transitioning to Ed Tech been overblown? THX
Ok I know some folks are heading back to the office. But for many we are still WFH. So question: how are you dressing for zooms? How has it changed over the last year if at all?
Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
I moved from being customer service at a call center to doing it remotely from home, and it's such a game changer. I just sit around in my pajamas, relaxed. Has anyone else switched to 100% remote work?
Good ideas, but I’m curious how often these are actually followed in practice https://www.accountingtoday.com/news/kpmg-launches-relaxed-work-policies-to-combat-remote-work-fatigue
I recently joined citi and presently working fron hyderabad. Can I expect to continue work like this even after the wfh ends like visiting office once in a month like that.
Please give your opinions on this.
I accepted a FADP offer but I have lifelong crippling anxiety It leads to (TMI) diarrhea, I can’t sleep at night, among a lot of other issues. I see a therapist and have their support in school accom. I appear high functioning and ever since uni went remote my life and performance has only improved. I know I’m capable of getting the work done and they must see potential if they hired me. But I feel that if I ask for WFH or other accom. I’m gonna be shooting myself and my career in the foot.
Hi guys whats the difference between PWC ac and PWC india? There are lots of post regarding PWC ac layoffs. Is it happening in PwC india also?
I have a 25K loan from my MBA. I paid off 100k whole, after graduation. 3 years ago, I moved my loan from federal to private ( SOFI) account. I recently lost my job. I have applied for unemployment, as the severance that I received will only cover for 2 months. Together my husband and I used to make less than 250k after tax. Now, with a loss of pay , we are going to make less. Do you think I will be eligible for Loan forgiveness?
Bain & Company Hi all!
Anyone from Bain & Company and Boston Consulting Group who can give referrals. Any help will be appreciated! Thank you for your time!
That feeling when you realize that if you had a heavier allocation a tech heavy fund, since starting job 7 years ago, your 401K balance would have been nearly double what it currently is and you would have been on your way to early retirement 10 years sooner 😭😭😭.
The main question is whether I would have sold and reallocated to less risky S&P 500 + int'l allocation to lock in gains by now...
I think I actually would have for a good portion

With the W&K layoffs ...
1. Recruiters are getting psyched.
2. Freelancers are even more unnerved.
3. Axe will fall on people phoning it in at other shops.

Asking for forgiveness later works better than asking for permission now.
The mantra of a true creative
don’t say anything. people thought we’d be “back to normal” in June ... accept the job, crush it and then you’ll have more leverage when and if you move bc they won’t want to lose you.
I wouldnt say anything now. Things can change over the next 5 months
Seriously? First of all, you haven't even "officially" decided to move, so why would you tell anyone? Second, make yourself invaluable at your job so your company won't care where you're working from. It'll be easier for them to accept you working remotely when they see what you bring to the party.
When you interviewed, did they position it as “remote for now”, or just “remote” full stop. If they offered as “remote for now,” with the assumption that you’d be available in office whenever things reopen, that may make your conversation a little harder. Definitely doable since there are so many unknowns right now and timelines feel like a farce, but you’ll need to build confidence very quickly in your new role. I’d probably take it, crush it, and then have the conversation later. Good luck!
Remote for now. Definitely appreciate your perspective as I agree. It’s a risk to wait but I’m sure even when people are “back” in the office there will be a slow phased approach and I’m hopeful I can find a way to make it work with them.
What did you decide to do? I’m in a very similar position, except we already moved. It’s very hard to find work in media where I moved and I don’t want to give up a viable job offer, but I also don’t want to uproot our life when we have to go back to the office. Could use someone to empathize with!
I’m planning to accept and prove myself with a few months of working remotely and then come dec/January-ish, I’ll discuss the best way to work remote long term. I may be able to offer up monthly trips to the office if needed. I figure worst case they decide they need someone local, I stay on until they find another person and than I can look for other work, but this would at least give me the opportunity to try and prove that I can successfully do the job even when I’m not in the office.
No way accept and see where life brings you
