any recent hcl kollata joiners ?? how is it like need to go office or wfh?? is they sending laptop to home ??
Hanging with my parents at the lake house and a bottle of rose in! Love working remote for the week!
Need to move to the burbs w/fiancee, but where? Staying in BK is not an option, though we will eventually work in the city 1-2 days/week (someday?). Won't do long island, need a 2 car garage w/space to work on cars and also space for a woodshop whether it's in basement or elsewhere. Planning on having kids and because we'll work from home a lot still need office space. I grew up in burbs and it wasn't so bad because I lived walking distance to train station into the city & nice downtown. 800k!
Anyone interested in a ~4 month engagement as an RFP Consultant in the DC area? FT Immediate need; mostly working remote is likely. Someone reached out to me, thought I’d share. Inbox me for details
Just venting here: I have an autoimmune disease, I am not allowed to WFH, and I work in an office where only about 50% wear masks. 🙃
If I buy a second monitor so that I can work from home occasionally, is it tax deductible?
What are good practices in terms of arranging a WFH workplace? I just realized that I've been working with my laptop since the start of the pandemic and now want to upgrade my workplace to something decent.
Any recommendations for a portable second monitor? Ideally something that would fit in a carry-on? Since I’m still WFH, I’m taking a week-long trip to visit my sister. We’ll both be working during the week and I’d like to avoid working only from a laptop if I can.
What percentage of your gigs are totally remote these days? Planning to take the leap but there are definitely more opps for better work outside of my local market.
Bf & I live in different cities, so due to remote work he comes over for longer periods of time. He was supposed to stay all week + the long weekend but today I was just so drained and on edge I told him he needs to go back today. I feel really bad and pretty sure he’s pissed but not sure how to preserve my own sanity while still being a good partner. Any ideas or advice on how to resolve and manage going forward?

Art Directors and Designers, what does your WFH work station look like? I’d like to upgrade mine to be more robust than just my laptop.

Hey everyone! I have been working freelance on-site for about 8 months now. My goal is to eventually find a remote freelance role. Any tips/advice that you have would be very much appreciated!
Anybody have insights into how Apple is doing their virtual on sites right now during the WFH orders? I am in the process of getting my date scheduled and curious what technology they are using.
I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked? It would be nice to have an extra income source, and since I work from home, I don’t see the time being an issue.
I feel like I need a career coach because I am considering switching jobs but I don’t know where to go or where to start. I feel really overwhelmed and don’t know what I’m qualified for. And then always worried another job could be worse than the one I’m in now. Am I the only one like this? Where do you start? I can look at job postings and all but idk what I want to do long term. Especially with WFH I feel like there’s absolutely no networking or anyone to talk to outside of my team
When you know it's going to be a long day full of pointless meetings and pointless work, but at least you're remote so you resolve to do it all in your underwear.
What to do when HR for an in-house role sends you an email with four interviews set up for next week without having had a phone conversation first? I have no sense of what the salary is for this role. I do not want to waste my time or the time of the four people I am scheduled to interview with. I thought that with most in-house roles, there would be a conversation about that first to make sure everyone is on the same page. 😩
Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
I keep seeing conflicting responses, for MBA application resume do you include a professional summary? Thanks!
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
I’m sure this won’t come across well but I have to say it… my husband and I make good money (about $600k combined) and are grateful for it but these Biden tax increases are going to kill us. The truly rich don’t get hit hard meanwhile it sucks to be an upper middle class family. No matter how much I make somehow my take home seems to keep going down.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Anyone here get LASIK surgery? Was it worth it? How much did insurance cover vs. total cost? How effective would you say it is on a scale of 1-10? Please share as much detail, I’m so tired of glasses and I hate contacts.
To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
Is it a bad idea to leave tech and try something else if I want to go back to tech eventually? For context I have the opportunity to move to London and pivot into a new field for me but the job is at an agency. I know I’d want to eventually go back to tech but paranoid it’ll be more difficult - thoughts?
Anyone had experience working on an account like the army or navy? Is it similar to healthcare where it’s hard to get out once you start?
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!
Can anyone speak to the growing pains in transitioning from a mid level to a senior associate? All of the sudden my partner is less willing to give me direction and support. He wants it done ASAP...
Is it just me but I think ex-[MBB] makes sense and even ex-Deloitte or any of the bigger prominent firms because it actually speaks to an active Alumni group or a profession with a broad skillset. But ex-[Bank] looks a bit strange. Please educate me! Am I being a snob?
Hey 🐟. Anyone hiring in the New York City area? I am a Business Analyst with two and half YOE @ BAH seeking a BA or Content Strategist role. Would love to work in the office again. Great with people, solid work ethic.

Is hiring a freelancer ever a trial run before offering a full time position? Saw that a company I love has FT openings but was reached out to by a recruiter about a freelance position.
Anyone ever start seeing someone at the client’s city? How did you deal with it given the eventual ending of the engagement?
