Once the dust settles post COVID what do you think the hybrid model will look like for most companies with number of days in office vs remote each week?
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Vaccine mandate legal?? YES!!!! https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/are-employee-covid-19-vaccine-mandates-legal-what-to-know-11627506537
I've seen that some lab levels can accurately predict mortality of COVID-19. What are you seeing in your practice?
Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?
Do people like those who auditioned in the attached video give others optimism for America's future? Do opportunities like this give optimism for America's future? Are the efforts of these individuals insignificant in today's society? For context, I believe this was filmed right before covid lockdowns. https://youtu.be/JYpJUhXGZq8
Anyone fly into JFK recently? What is the covid protocol, do they ask for a negative test or just have you fill out a form?
In a causal conversation on Friday, my wife’s supervisor ( white women in her 50s , lives in Arizona and trump supporter) let know that she does not believe in coronavirus and wearing a mask is an inconvenience for her. Also she is frustrated on not traveling for work. Will folks take this serious when a tragedy happens to their loved ones? Why are people so selfish? Any suggestions? Wife and I are still in a shock that people not taking COVID-19 seriously
I feel terrible for seniors/elderly trying to get Covid vaccine appts online. I am splitting my time living between Florida and Illinois and signing up for the vaccine in either state is a nightmare for people who are not very computer savvy. I have been helping seniors who had problems figuring it out. If you have the time, reach out and help others. I have seen immense relief and a weight lifted when people get an appointment. Plus, helping others makes you feel good! 💪
For those teleworking due to COVID, when did you announce your pregnancy at work? I’m worried I’ll be passed over for opportunities.
These people can’t event keep a safe location at the White House.

Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
Help: The 2 interviews in this round are a week apart, I just had the 2nd interview and realized I didn’t send a thank you note to the 1st interviewer… is it better to only send to 2nd interviewer or send a one-week late thank you note to 1st interviewer?

Any tips or advice on negotiating salary when receiving a job offer? How can I ask for more without the risk of losing the offer?
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general

Advice needed! I was laid off in Jan and since then I’ve been building my own practice (which I started last year and was doing on the side). Since Covid happened, work has been a lot slower so I started applying for jobs. I got two job offers in these past couple weeks, but the problem is that neither is in the area I want to practice, though the experience from one of them would be probably useful in the future. Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)
Just had my first business trip since COVID. I just want to say FU to everyone who is inconsiderate enough to recline and try to break my kneecaps for 2.5 hours.
