Should you leave a somewhat stable (not so much with Covid and layoff talks) job for an ~8% pay increase at another agency rightnow? Who knows what the other place could be as well.
Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage
No masks and social distancing? I will continue to take precautions even though am vaccinated.
Who else is spending more time/resources on fitness and skincare so you come out better looking than you did pre-COVID? Are you seeing intended results?
Anyone been tested for covid at judiciary square? How long was the wait and how long did results take?
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
Why exactly people are so scared of Covid? Even if you catch it, very likely you will recover. What am I missing?
I am wondering, in Kerala still daily COVID cases are more that 10k daily. From such a small state , it seems like this would be the highest in the world these days.
I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?
Don’t you think this covid19 is exposing some truths about corporate world? Before the industrial revolution most of the people pretty much worked and lived in the same place. The industrial revolution brought in mass manufacture, reporting and punching time in/out at a central office. Now that seems so dated and command and control in this new era of remote work and digital online presence, services and tools. Should we go back to the old ways unless needed?

Can I apply infosys after 6 months after rejecting their offer ? Should I use a new Email ID? N.B. I have rejected the offer due to parental COVID infection on middle of second wave.

Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.

Thoughts on exiting to IB subsidiaries of public accounting firms (big 4 corporate finance, baker tilly capital, bdo capital, etc). I know they’re not necessarily equivalent to going to a BB or even a pure play MM IB but can they still open up good exits and create better MBA prospects than say transaction services experience?

I’d like to leave my current company soon (complicated). I interviewed with several companies but no offers materialized (someone had more relevant experience or better fit than I). now running out of roles to apply to. There are a few companies I would have not even considered applying to initially (no industry knowledge, too far to commute, not financially stable) but now feel like I can’t be too picky. Should I just apply to every relevant role I see although I don’t think I’ll be happy there
