Anyone been tested for covid at judiciary square? How long was the wait and how long did results take?
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
I just had to get a Covid test. I’d rather get the shot every week than that swab. I can’t imagine doing weekly testing!
The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
COVID-XIX sounds better tho...
Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Help! I am 6’1” tall with long legs and long feet .... and it seems like my “go to online store” for tall pants/slacks (32”-34” inseam) as well as shoes (size 14M) has shuttered (Long Tall Sally). I would love any suggestions for either tall clothes and/or shoes. Even a place to buy custom shoes at this point - I am desperate! My slightly too small size 13 Tory Burch sandals are just not going to cut it during the colder months, even given COVID 🤪 Thanks in advance!
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?
Someone tested positive for COVID-19 in my office today. They’re only shutting the office down for one afternoon for “deep cleaning” and not requiring any self isolation. Is this normal? Has anyone had a similar experience?
My organization has told that I need to come back into the office full time after I have been WFH (without issue) since last March. I have a 6 month old baby at home, and my bubble consists only of the people I live with. We don’t do anything, go anywhere unless absolutely essential, etc. my job is such that first responders are in and out of the office and the work building all the time, and plenty of them have caught (and passed on) covid to other individuals. Am I being overly dramatic-cont.
One of the most thorough and comprehensive pieces of investigative journalism on COVID origins. Definitely worth the watch.
If any of you ladies froze your eggs when did you do so? Do you wish you did it sooner? When do you think is the ideal age to do so? Are you more likely to get covered if you get it at a later age? It’s looking less likely to find a partner due to covid / difficulties dating in this climate so I’m beginning to look into egg freezing options. Would appreciate any advice / insight 🤗
COVID-19 has created a push for out-of-hospital birth in our communities. No one feels safe in the hospital in this current environment. What about your clientele?
I’m in Tax and completing the mandatory GAM WBL. Usually, this course it presented at ETU and can be described as three monotone panelists speaking for two hours without any inflection whatsoever. This year, due to COVID, it’s presented as WBL. However, instead of a new and interesting format, it’s just a recording of the same humdrum blithering. Except now, I get to listen to it with my children fighting in the background.
Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
Well looks like the secret service might have covid as well. Nothing like driving a covid patient around with the windows rolled up
Edelman NY. Are creatives happy there? Well, as happy as creatives will allow themselves to be, I mean.
So KPMG changed it benefits, 6% of you salary (not just base pay) contribution to 401K without any contribution required by employees and 3 years of vesting period. So you will get the 6% even if you don’t put anything into 401K. So proud of KPMG
Can anyone provide insight to working at Holland and Hart? Also, when do parental leave benefits kick in? Is there a waiting period? Do they negotiate lateral bonuses for losing out on present firm end of year bonus? TIA.

Just received a survey from EY titled application preferences. I was rejected from a finance staff role a few weeks back after the first round pre recorded interview… this survey asked if I’m still looking for a job, start date, and location and practice preferences. Is this common and is EY still hiring? TIA!

How many big 4 people are done busy season right now for audit? Started getting asked to work 80 hour weeks which is why I didn't go big 4. Thinking about switching if it stays this way.
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.

Is it good to apply to a company if you aren't planning on accepting a role? I like to keep up my interview skills and search the market, but if I interview at a company I may want to work for some day, will they see a past interview as good? Or what about if I reject an offer?
I’m having a major surgery this week and my sister told me she couldn’t make it because she does have enough vacation days left for the year and she wants to save them in case we go on vacation later in the year. I’m livid.
