Help — would love to get into production but I have 0 experience, besides the occasional talent + competitive research for a brand’s series. How do I get started? Really just want to help out on set* and see how things work! *Covid pending / future aspirations
4 years at Accenture were stressful, left to go to Deloitte for $22k salary bump and hope for better culture, then COVID layoff happened. If I try returning to Accenture, which is the best division to try returning to (with generic consulting skills) and why? Not looking for "division spirit/pride," looking for insight into which divisions have better pay/culture/WLB/etc. (constructive replies only please, I realize I sound like a 🤡)
Has anyone travelled to the US recently? If so- were you able to use the $40 COVID test at Shoppers as a negative test to cross the border? I’m considering going for a long weekend at the end of the month but trying to sort out the covid-related logistics.
Anyone else still extremely fatigued weeks after COVID symptoms? I’m still sleeping 10+ hours a day with low energy throughout. Need naps and feel faint a lot.
The added pressure of navigating the application/testing process along with general concerns about COVID have been a lot to handle lately. How have you all been dealing with this and managing anxiety?
How do you deal with family in India believing and spreading every false rumor/forwarded message on WhatsApp? I stopped correcting them a few years ago when I realized it was bad for my relationship with them, but the forwards nowadays especially related to Covid is outright dangerous (and obviously false when read by an educated person). Very worried about this
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
What’s the best single watch winder? COVID makes it tough wearing my watch all day... not looking for luxury, just something quality and a good value.
Just tried out the Apple Fitness +, loving it so far. The Apple Watch integration makes the exercises feel more customized to you. Wish this was out during the earlier days of covid! You don’t need equipment to use it, but if you get a cheap bike or compact treadmill from Amazon, it’s will be way cheaper that peloton. 🍎🎄🍎
Coronavirus, Brexit, US elections - any predictions of how the market will react in 2020?
Anyone have menstrual complications after their covid vaccine so bad they ended up calling their doctors? What did they do for you? I have had my period for 6 weeks straight after the covid vaccine. I worked with my doctor for YEARS to get my cycle and body where it needed to be (endometriosis) and have been on a pill so things were finally consistent and going great until the shot. I am miserable, scared and in pain. Just need to know I’m not the only one and things will get better.
Anybody aware of any recruitment agencies (at senior levels) in the APAC region (Singapore, India) for life sciences? Currently in the US and thinking of moving to another geography for personal reasons post covid
Sometimes it hurts to think about how well I know some airports. What terminals/airports were you frequenting before covid?
I’m trying to figure out what I need to do covid wise for my upcoming Europe trip (first week of August). Will be staying in Italy and Greece and passing thru (only airport) UK and Netherlands. I’m fully vaxxed from the US, will I be ok to enter/connect through these countries? There is so much conflicting info out there my head hurts.
What about the religious exemption? Who is eligible to claim it, and under what circumstances is the claim likely to be accepted? The short answer is: almost anyone can claim it, but not many will receive it. https://www.govexec.com/management/2021/09/how-will-religious-exemption-federal-employee-covid-19-vaccine-mandate-work/185572/
Anyone know of any good black financial advisors/ wealth managers? I live in the DC area. During all this COVID-19 related stuff it feels like a good time to make sure my finances are in order.
Moved to Atlanta about a year ago and haven’t been able to build my social circle yet. With Covid it hasn’t helped as well. Indian born desi, I am F and happily married! Would love to meet some like minded individuals. Looking forward to making some friends :)

Percentage wise, what is a typical bump for a promotion? Will soon be an associate (on the buy side)
I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)

Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
Do you include social security payments while planning for retirement? If so, how can I estimate the amount I'd receive per year?
Currently in a rotational program at EY (first year out of undergrad). Got placed on a long term risk project and wondering if it’s worth it staying long term. Currently interviewing for the strategy team at a legacy payments company (think visa or Mastercard) and wondering if it’ll stifle growth doing internal consulting. Would definitely appreciate any insights on this as I’m not too sure who who talk to and ask. Thanks!
I realized I only enjoy chasing higher comp. Job switches every 2 years, always looking out for the next bump… it has taken a toll on my mental health. Tried to get hobbies to distract but I find myself back at websites checking comp numbers. Any suggestions to get out of the race?
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from CTS, with the package of 10.2L. In that 9.5 is fixed and .5 is variable. How much will be the take home salary for me? Thanks in advance.
Just got the dreaded call from daycare that my toddler bit another kid. Any tips or resources to help with this?
How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.
