Hi Sharks, I have an offer from DUSI and Joining date is 28th March. 1. How long DUSI is planning to extend this WFH? 2. I can claim 40k relocation bonus, So can I claim it before actually relocating or do I need to submit the proofs?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Any recommendations for good improv clubs, places that teach comedy writing, or joke writing resources in general? Trying to punch myself up while we’re still WFH.
After a year in public accounting, I’m thinking this ain’t it for me. When we were in the office and on site at clients it was amazing, but I have been doing all my audit work from home since March and feel like I haven’t learned anything, and every day is miserable. I have one CPA exam section left and I honestly just want to collect my $5k bonus and bail. Do you think they would try to recollect that money if I were to do that? Things could change, but I’m looking at this possibility.
Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.
Starting a job at Citi soon. Any tips on what I should discuss with prospective boss regarding onboarding? Do they provide wfh equipment? Anything else I need to discuss? Citi
Suggestions for a birthday gift for myself? My boyfriend has been asking for weeks & I keep saying nothing but he is not having it. I have a comfortable life & can’t think of anything other than a nice night out, which is already common in our relationship. I suggested a nice set of cookware because I enjoy cooking on our nights in but he jokes it’s a little too domestic. An engagement is already in the works so jewelry seems silly & I WFH so even high end shoes/bags can wait. Thoughts?
Thinking of moving to LA for 1-2 months during this WFH time to try it out and see if I like it. Any recommendations on which websites to use to find short term furnished rentals in LA. I can only think of AirBnb at the moment. Thank You!

Does anyone have any insight as to when things are going to go “back to normal” in California in terms of needing to appear in person for smaller status conferences, hearings, depositions, etc. instead of doing it via zoom? I am permanently remote but a lot of my cases are in courts that are a good 1.5-2 hour drive from me and I’m starting to feel anxious about when I’ll have to start going in person for these types of things because of the distance.
Which laptop is provided for WFH for newly onboarded/existing Siemens employees? What other gadgets does Siemens provide during onboarding? Anybody recently joined siemens please reply.
I'm still wondering why the commercial real estate sector hasn't collapsed. Two years in it's clear WFH is here to stay-at most I could see some companies implementing a hybrid schedule. Regardless, the real estate footprint will be much smaller. Are building owners just trying to keep up appearances by maintaining high rents? It doesn't make sense to me.
Do people use work laptops for personal stuff? Can an employer track what you do if you browse social media and the web? I don't have a work laptop but I've always been curious when companies give out laptops for people WFH.

Question for everyone out there, I am a business analyst and thinking about exploring new career opportunities. What are the thoughts of the job market right now for folks who are currently employed? Is it smart to try and look for a new job right now in this climate, or should I wait it out until post Covid? I feel like I might be one of the first ones let go if I go elsewhere, and I know that many people are looking for jobs due to Covid related layoffs.

How valuable are the salary insights that recruiters can provide? I’m just starting to apply to consulting and startup roles. I could easily apply to some of them myself, but I don’t have a good feel for the pay because these are new/smaller companies.
I’ve gotten emails lately talking about how we are hiring at Accenture and asking us to tap into our networks, so figured I’d post on here. Needs being called out can be seen in the picture. I can’t promise I’ll respond to everything but if anyone wants a referral feel free to reach out. Also, I work in healthcare and I’ve gotten separate emails from leadership about how we need to hire more people there too.
