I’ve been working on my book a lot in case I need to go through a Covid-related job hunt soon (and because my old one was god awful). Would love feedback if anyone has the time!
Is anyone else back in the office? If so, how many people are in your office and how does distancing look? Does the company have set covid protocol?
Occidental slashing dividends in half is absolute trash. Why did covid have to hit my pockets like THIS.
I need to take a week off before Sept end or I lose the days. Any recommendations for vacations that are covid safe and not in jersey? I am in nj
Me waiting hours for a simple query to run on client’s overloaded servers due to Covid planning
When covid first hit, I was delighted to be working from home. My hours even improved. Now, because of some triggering events, I’m dealing with horrible panic attacks on the daily. I’m dissociating and can’t focus long enough to get work done. I JUST hit a year at this firm and am going on a one month stress leave. Worried I might not kick this mental state in that time. Any advice as to what I can do while on leave so I can come back focused and ready to work?
TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.
I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)
who had lgbtqia conferences this year at their firms? curious what post peak covid is looking like for folks
I have a gambling problem and it’s become way worse due to Covid. I have been playing online during the pandemic as I’m now in a state where it is legal to play online. This has been bad to the tune of I’m losing double what I earn. What is the best solution or recover, curtail, or just get support so I stop feeling like a piece of shit.
Any quitted big 4 right after a year? I got delayed with good rating but with the reason of not getting enough experiences (I took 3 months study leave). I also got assigned to busy files and for 70% of my file I worked till 10/11. Since WFH starts I completely lost the boundary of work/life and got depressed.
I realized it's not the life I want and I got burned out and cried all the time. During COVID I realize it's hard to find a job... any suggestions? I can't hold on anymore
To summarize, 1/3 of the Big 10 athletes who tested positive for COVID had inflamed heart muscles which can lead to death during strenuous exercise.
Yet some people still want college and high school sports to proceed as normal. We'd literally have our kids dying on the field for our entertainment.
Fascinating and awful story in NEJM about undocumented immigrants during COVID. Unsurprisingly, they're getting hit incredbly hard and are not able to access healthcare
Feeling underpaid for the work I’m producing and taking on. I recognize agencies notoriously under pay lower level employees, but I feel at this point I’m worth so much more. For context I have 2.5 years experience, in an AC role. To my knowledge we still aren’t passing out promotion and pay raises (ya know, COVID and all). Any advice? Do I start shopping around for a new spot?
I use Flo, last possible ovulation we did our thing pretty much daily. I’m currently 3 days late. I’ve taken 4 tests and all were negative. I’m recently getting over covid too. The reason I threw that in is bc I’m not sure My “symptoms “ are early pregnancy or lingering covid// symptoms:weird spells of nausea ( I never get nauseas) weird cramps that don’t feel like period cramps. Tender nips started today. I’m not sure which date to go by for DPO. Possibly 10
Customer : you should be getting on your hands and knees like a dog to beg for my business
Manager : sorry for my front desk upsetting you well comp your 90 minute session
Me : gets coached for not breaking policy and giving the lady a massage that’s positive for covid so I told her to rebook
Anyone move to a small city/big town during the pandemic era? How's it going?
Not sure if COVID is causal or just the trigger but have been missing a sense of community connection beyond family and friends. Maybe COVID has made people more insular / cautious of stranger interactions, at least it feels that way (?)
Hi, im a full stack engineer worked with Vue, MERN, Java and python (Spring boot and Django). I have 9 months of experience working at a fast phased start-up, which unfortunately had to shut down due to covid. Later after 5 months of career gap as full time employee and freelancing not been recognised as experience CGI had offered me position of Associate software engineer with base package. Its been my 6 months here. I wanted to know if switching now to another company make my profile weak? CGI
I got the copper IUD 6 months ago and my pH has been soooo off. I went to the doctors for it awhile back and got yeast infection pills and tried boric acid pills, but nothing has helped long term. I’ve read that cutting the strings could help, but I’m not going to go to the doctors anytime soon bc covid. Any advice on what I can try in the meantime?
Covid hits different when someone close has it. My parent is critically ill and organs failing one after the other. It sucks that I can't be right there.
How is covid-19 going to change the national security space?
I anticipate it'll make some professions/skillsets less relevant or irrelevant. If you're in one of those fields, what are you doing...
Advice needed! I have been hustling for months. My partner and I have been offered two good freelance jobs (1-2 months). Both from agencies that we’ve been going back and forth with about other opportunities that fell through.
Both are going to take a couple of days to confirm. Do I say yes to both for now until one confirms? I am not trying to play them off against each other. I just don’t want to refuse one and be left with nothing. What is the normal protocol to avoid burning bridges?

Am I making a dumb decision? Buying a car for 95k while TC is 340k. I’ve never bought a car for that much and grew up thinking 30k cars were on the pricier side. It feels expensive and only other debt is a 2k mortgage.
I currently work as a optician, referral coordinator and optometry technician. Busting my butt off wearing all 3 hats and I get paid $20 an hour… I don’t think this is a fare wage considering I’m doing the job of 3 people. I want to negotiate a higher wage any tips of what I should ask for?
Thoughts on dipping into the condo market? Was thinking of waiting till March but don't think prices will drop that drastically and will be ok long term...

27 year old married male with no kids, any advice on the best way to approach getting more life insurance? Thank you!
I’m doing some soul searching for where I want to go with my career next. I have 7+ years of experience in account management in the digital agency space. Most recently took a chance on a client side role that wasn’t the right fit and left. I’ve come across Customer Success Manager roles at SaaS companies. My goals are to have true WLB (Max 40 hours per week), and ideally to work for a company that has mission-driven products. Any thoughts on if CSM roles might be a good/transferable fit?
