Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

Those who moved from biglaw to in-house at a large corporation, have you successfully managed to negotiate working entirely remote?
First week WFH in a long time. Kids are home so thought I’d go to the office for minimal distractions...nope: (cont.)
In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once. My team is understaffed and there’s no plan to hire people due to COVID-19. How do you manage to tackle the day instead of let it tackle you? I feel like no one knows how much I’m suffering since I’m WFH’ing and try to relay positive emotions over FaceTime or messages.
Now that people are talking about reopening the economy and even non-essential travel, I am suddenly loving this WFH thing more.
I recently left consulting to work at a FinTech startup here in Chicago. We’re filling out our Business Analysis team (going from 3 to 6) and I’m looking for Directors and Managers. Required skills include SQL (can use joins, case-when, etc. - not a data warehousing role) & Excel (pivots and index-match), and a nice to have would be an understanding of lending/credit programs and exec presentation skills. https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/1989629988 DM me if interested! FYI - we’re remote currently. Also, sorry but we do not sponsor.
Job hunting and have realized I need a reduced schedule (ideally 3, maybe 4 days/week) and ideally the flexibility to work from home 1-2 days a week if I have to work 4-5 days/week. How do I...
Prediction: Maybe companies realize WFH actually works. And several of them stop paying absurd rent for large commercial real estate space. Half the company becomes WFH. People move out of NYC (cntd)

Anyone just getting tired of their partner on a whole new level with WFH? I feel like we are getting into spats more, I'm getting more resentful of the lack of even workloads/effort, and to top it all off these tensions are literally invading my personal space! Not looking for advice really. Just wondering if anyone else is feeling partner fatigue more now than the Before Times.
Fish Parents— we’re making some budgeting models for future kids/when we can retire etc. How much per year per kid have you been spending on sports/activities?

Scam artists that appear somewhat legit, but then cracks start to appear in their narratives. In my case, I have a potential client purportedly from Japan who says he said he wanted me to negotiate a P and A to sell industrial storage storage tanks to a business in North America. Now, it’s coming that that business is purportedly an investment firm, with 12 other businesses in a joint venture to purchase the tanks, that wants to send me checks to go into my IOLTA account. Sim. stories?

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

I was fired by my firm in Oct for a combo of covid-related & other reasons, jumped right into volunteering for Biden campaign, then spent Dec/Jan dealing with family issues. Now trying to figure out how to address in interviews, what to do about writing samples & references. In the past I’ve only worked with recruiters when they contacted me about a particular job. Can I hire a recruiter to help me with my job search? Or a career coach? If so, how do I find the right person?
