I was swarmed with work in June and until 10 days ago, now everything's gone silent again. I'm guessing it's directly related to the COVID uncertainty (e.g. 2nd waves and all). Until we have a vaccine we won't be making a lot of money, I guess. I'm on track to bill 1750 hours this year if I'm lucky.

In the same spot. I'm just trying to enjoy the quiet.

We have the same issue. It’s been gushing, drying up, then gushing again. Depending on our areas of expertise, we’re ranging from 110 to 180 hrs this month. I am drowning in work right now and many of my coworkers are begging for assignments.

188 for June I was hopeful things were on the upswing, probably 150 for July

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!

WHY are we so nasty and vindictive to each other? Got an entire 30 day block from Blacks In Tech for pointing out that a conversation about the COVID-19 vax did not begin from a respectful place. IMO starting a respectful convo on that topic means inviting people to share their “reasons”. This person started the discussion from the angle that Black people have “misconceptions” - which plays into the narrative that we are too dumb to evaluate the info and land on a decision which is right for us.

Anyone interested in buying a LV Neverfull GM in Damier Ebene? I know that anyone who wants this bag probably already has it, but just checking. It’s in great condition and I’m willing to sell for under $1000. Not trying to make a profit, just recoup what I spent. Reason I’m selling is I’m leaning more toward mini bags these days.

Question for TSG folks - I'm considering applying to TSG. Do I have to use a recruiter (external or internal) or can I apply on my own? I think I can have more bargaining power if I apply on my own without having the recruiter in the middle since TSG would have to pay them too, right?
