Bank statement showing enough cash for 3 months, certified cheque for 1st and last month rent, and salary letter from employer. Most buildings also have a 40-45x monthly rent to annual income rule.

Does this work for all buildings?

Do you have any cards at the moment? I moved over from the UK where I had an American Express for a few years - they opened up a card straight away and somehow ported my credit history. Ended up with a $6k credit balance and a 700+ credit score.

Same! Yes you have to have an Amex in your home country for 3 months I think and call up a special department to apply. It was an absolute lifesaver.

Certain large management companies don’t (didnt) require a credit history. We moved straight into the Avalon in downtown Brooklyn with zero credit history and normal upfront.

What holiday party did you get?
Anyone living close to an office, got a holiday party with food and drinks, and the venue started open for them until around midnight. Our remote workers got a one hour party w a DJ and trivia that let you win gift cards. Yeah it was nice to win a gift card but I found it lame in comparison to hanging out with my team in real life.

I’m so grumpy about new campus hires. Sometimes I’m judgmental (your hobby is “working on your golf swing,” really?). Sometimes I’m just exhausted by the worried earnestness. Sometimes I’m amazed that they seem to have zero useful skills, yet they’ll be making 150k easily in the not too distant future.

Hey BAM community, how busy are you, what does your day-to-day look like. Looking to get a barometer on everyone’s workload.

Not necessarily looking for a referral but I applied for a position at Lenovo (via a current employee’s referral link) & it’s been sitting in “under review” for a while now. Is that a normal practice? I thought I’d at least receive a call by now 🤷🏽‍♀️
