Normally, I wouldn’t ask this but my brief experience in consulting makes me feel like every thing I do will be under a microscope and my manager will talk to me about this
So I interviewed with an agency pre pandemic but of course rona put everything on hold. They really liked me according to an inside source. I want to keep top of mind for them and keep checking in but don’t want to seem desperate or annoying. Should I message them once a month or is that even too often? Halp.
Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags?

Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

My current lease is up next May when I’ll be coming up on 2 years with my firm and getting close to promotion. I’m thinking about asking to work from home permanently when my lease is up so I can move to a LCOL area and be closer to family. Would working remote hurt my chances for promotion?

What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year?
