I was swarmed with work in June and until 10 days ago, now everything's gone silent again. I'm guessing it's directly related to the COVID uncertainty (e.g. 2nd waves and all). Until we have a vaccine we won't be making a lot of money, I guess. I'm on track to bill 1750 hours this year if I'm lucky.
Anyone here use One Medical? I know it’s a concierge service and that I can get a lot of the component service on my own elsewhere. But scheduling with my existing doctors is really annoying, and I’m wondering if OM is worth the convenience of easy access to PCP/GYN/Covid testing. 26F in NYC, if it matters.
With the new variant of COVID becoming more of an issue will we have the option again to be excused from inventory counts due to anxiety of contracting the virus? I was recently asked to conduct a count but do not feel comfortable with the new strain.

Deloitte folks- advice/ recommendation on how to prepare for candidate led technology related case interview, please?

Need some advice. I’m 21, my partner is 29. We have a son together. As I get older, I realize I don’t know if I’m ready to settle down completely. I know that sounds crazy, because I am a mom, but I want to travel around and my partner thinks it’s not doable with a family. I also want to eventually move out of state to explore other opportunities, but he’s not interested. He thinks we are just at two different points in our life. Is this a reason to part ways?
For those who have successfully transitioned to 100% remote work with their client, when do you think we’ll be back in office? Do you think we’ll be wfh even longer than most?
