My grandmother died a few days ago (not COVID). She knew it was coming and had communicated her funeral and burial wishes to the extended family. (Cont.)

For those who got their coronavirus stimulus checks, what did you or plan to spend it on?
Anyone could recommend a career coach who is familiar with our industry? I was recently hired after being unemployed for a year due to Covid. My team is amazing, my colleagues are super helpful, but my I hate the work. I found myself behaving very out of character, unmotivated at work, unwilling to speak up, and awkwardly at socializing. I don’t know if it’s me or it’s the work. Think I could really use some help from a career coach. Thoughts? 🙏

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
I gained over 25 pounds over lockdown, went for drinks with colleagues for the first time since March 2020, and the very next day I had other colleagues messaging me on teams and dropping remarks about how they are walking a lot these days to drop COVID weight. It might be a coincidence but probably not. Feels like my weight was discussed a lot behind my back as no one else in the group of people that went out had gained weight.
How are those people experienceing hoemelessness being impacted by COVID-19? Has anyone seen any data?
My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it

Fish in restructuring: How many hours are you charging per week since COVID? When do you expect to travel again?
I usually don’t do a lot of holiday baking but this year actually have the time... would it be weird to drop off home baked goods to neighbors due to covid?
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!

Why do MBA hires make so much for only 2 additional years of courses? Even when looking at the classes, it doesn't seem like anything crazy you couldnt learn from some other avenue?

Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
I'm on dat Covid-20 shieeet
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?
