Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?
Waking up today knowing that I’m off for 7 days and then get to work from home till the last of week of January is THE BEST FEELING EVER.
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Back on the road in the AM after 8 months of the WFH life. The Sunday Scaries are at an all time high right now.
I’m planning on working remote in a few different cities this summer and fall. A week or two or three here and there.

I’m a bit late but, I’m trying to build my wfh setup, any suggestions for stand up desks / chairs/ etc?
I've found that wfh makes it so I never know when I'm hungry anymore. I wake up right before work, I'm in one spot most of the day, then when I clock out and start moving around more, I'm starving.
Like most of the agencies, we were operating in a high touch environment with our clients to grow business. And in 2020 everyone understood the need to operate remotely and focused on getting the work done. However a lot of sales/opportunities for growth were discovered in informal coffee/lunch sessions with clients. I wonder how are all of you engaging with clients in a remote set up. Would love to hear everyone’s experiences..

First remote week in months. Walked into the grocery store to go shopping for the week, got overwhelmed, bought cookie dough and La Croix and walked out. Does anyone actually grocery shop on the reg?
Started a new gig over a month ago and was very excited to work with my new partner but they haven’t been too welcoming, projects have not been collaborative (just me doing it and emailing it to them), they don’t really reply to my messages about work (started remote) and doesn’t really reply to any creative inspiration that I send to break ice. Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?

There’s a position I want to apply to at a different company, and it seems like it would fit me perfectly. I went on LinkedIn and saw that there’s one person from my undergrad school that works there with a similar title for the job I want. How do I reach out to him and how much is too much? Do I ask for advice on getting the job/how the job is/ a referral? Should I even reach out?

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
