What would happen if we don’t provide covid vaccine record during onboarding ? Is everybody required to be vaccinated ? Can I just not provide vaccine record and still be ok ?
Omg I'm an enthusiast. Covid dreams come true
To hell with coronavirus and lay-off threats. I’m having myself a nice ribeye steak dinner with some healthy veggies.
I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly

Anyone looking out into the next earnings time window for plays? COVID only really impacted portions of Q1 so Q2 should reflect the massive impact of COVID right?
Simple question hopefully.. do you prescribe albuterol or duonebs for stable outpatient covid patients?
Unprofessional post- I’m seeing my new coworkers in person for the first time this weekend because I was a remote hire. But I have gained so much weight since covid that I feel like people are going to be disappointed when they see me in person. Because my professional headshot is from 2 years ago and I don’t look like that anymore. What do I do? I really want to cancel.
Anyone get a low grade fever for a few days and freak out thinking it’s covid? I had one for 2 days. Today is day 3 and the fever seems to be gone but my body is so tired and I have no motivation to work or think if that makes sense. Just wanna see if anyone has had similar experiences. Only other symptom is inflamed tonsils
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.
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
With COVID-19 getting worse, is there any way to help our old people? I can’t imagine they can fight for food/medicine/supplies. Any organizations doing this work, or ideas on what I can do?
My partner hasn’t been feeling well over the last couple days. Nothing severe, just slight malaise and fatigue. She told me she had contact with someone who was Covid positive but she’s in healthcare so that isn’t anything new. She was prepared. Today she was sent home from work and told to quarantine but has insisted on getting hugs and even coughed on me during one. We’ve been together for a LONG time. This is a pattern for when she gets sick but with possible Covid I expected more precaution
Real estate experts - I previously stayed in US for 6 years and made 799 credit score, however due to Visa issues I had to move out. Now I have chance to get back to US on L1 Visa. Do any of you know if lenders have any issues lending mortgage to people who are on L1 Visa?
I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.
Put more money into the market. Fed will not raise rates in 3 years. No where we late to put sideline money now. More money will rush into money in the short term 12-36 months

I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse? I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
Amex Platinum is offering 20K points if you sign up for their “pay over time” option. I called about something else and they offered at the end of the call. No downside, you can still pay in full as usual. Just activated the option. Figured I’d pass the easy points to y’all!

I work for a sole practitioner on a contract (hourly) basis. He is filing a lawsuit to recoup unpaid legal fees from prior clients; which includes fees he paid me for my work but the client failed to pay him. We have a few other cases, but things are pretty slow at the moment. He has been asking me to do a lot of work for free to help him with the litigation to recoup legal fees. I feel as though my time is much more valuable and I should not be spending all this time doing free work. Advice?
