Hi!! I got some awesome feedback about pivoting into the tech industry and networking seemed to be a hot topic. Can anyone offer tips on networking (virtually bc covid) when you’re starting with little to no connections? Moreover, how to come across like an actual person trying to connect and not just someone random asking you for an “in” at your company?
How has COVID affected your workload, if at all? My group has a lot more work to do, and less resources with which to do it. But I don't worry about layoffs, so overall I'm happy to be where I am.
We are so close to the middle of the year and I've yet to do anything I said I would once things calmed down from covid 😔
Where has time gone?
Tror ni möjligheten att wfh kommer bestå post-covid? Jag trivs ganska bra med det. Hade gärna gjort det någon gång i veckan.
Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise
Anyone ever been offered the “mommy track” without warning and without being pregnant? Hours are lower than normal, but the firm is still expecting us to meet hour requirements in spite of COVID negatively impacting certain practice areas disproportionately (including my area). Was blindsided by an alternative arrangement “offer” from our COO (non-attorney) a couple of weeks ago - no details on what the offer entails, but this feels like a short-sided move, not to mention sexist. Thoughts?
To my Republican friends - higher testing didn’t lead to more covid cases and counting legitimate mail in votes is not fraud
Hi There - I'm considering a role in consulting. The role is London based and as some of you may know the commute into London by train is significantly expensive (especially compared to my pre-covid commute by car). So that I can properly consider any offers I may get - can you claim expenses generally when travelling to client site, if that client site is also in London (albeit a different part of London to where your home office).
PEOPLE DO MAKE MISTAKES!! but My manager reacts very rudely everytime with me, And all seniors who are with him around 10+ years will assign tickets to me and they monitor me continuously.
I never had any conflicts with anyone, but i felt that they all connered me. I had a call with my director and senior director and explained about this on my last day
i never met my teammates in office since i joined and resigned in covid.
Did this happen coz i dint have much rappo with my them?
I love London with all my heart, but I don’t think I can stay here post Covid. I need to be closer to my family, and this pandemic has really put everything into perspective.
What about teachers who are retiring early due to a gross lack of covid mitigation measure?
We are losing good people either way! Do what’s right!
Hi All, looking for some references for HR, an ex -colleague of mine she has around 7 years of experience HR role as generalist is looking for HRBP role. She quit her previous organisation looking to work with other industries with an offer in hand but unfortunately she suffered from covid before joining and was unable to join and lost the offer. Any help with references will be appreciated.

TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.
I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)
Just arrived to Sydney from Chicago with my wife and 2 sons both under 2. Escorted to hotel quarantine and spending these 2 weeks trying to figure out if I would/could/should make the move to Sydney permanent. Wife and kids are Australian citizens. Made a list of pros and cons- cons column is empty - the only concern is work. How are you folks doing with COVID economy? Are there significant downsizing? How’s the projected technology consulting pipelines down here?
Got an admit to Haas EMBA program. Not sure if i should join, given the whole covid situation we are in. Would love to hear others perspectives.
Husband is extremely stressed at his work , overworked and in a toxic environment. He puts in 12- 13 hrs days and I end up doing most of child care & house work along with my job. He has no time to look for another job while being at his current job. I see Covid + work is taking a toll on his mental health. He broke down & cried 2-3 times this year. This weekend, he finally decided to quit his job, take a month break and start looking for a new job next year. (Cont)
Feeling depressed because I just did a more realistic budget calculation for a March trip to Spain. B/w the need for refundable flight and hotels (I normally do airbnb and don’t care about refundable flights, and I don’t have enough miles and can only get us partial coverage at 1 hotel out of 2) plus covid tests, the trip is about $1000-2000 more/pp than I anticipated. I don’t think my SO’s gonna want to spend the money to go..Should probs look into backup intl locations 😭

Here’s an entirely unrelated to work question, but one that’s entirely “rooted” in vanity. Has anyone had any experience with Bosley or other hair restoration procedures? If so, what was your experience?
Is it true that by the 15th of November all TCSers will have come back to the office? If it's true then can we report to our nearest office branch or will we have to report to our base branch?

I am looking for change, I have 4.5 yrs of experience in python currently working on Cisco project. can anyone refer me. Notice period is 90 days. Only Pune location.
I’m a pretty anxious person and I’ve realized that a remote work environment only makes me more so - not being able to read people’s tone well, email/ping responses being more delayed than they would be in a conversation, the awkwardness of virtual meetings, etc. I’m in therapy and will discuss this there but would love to hear some tips about how people manage work anxiety specifically in a remote consulting environment.

I am currently a sales rep at cintas and I am thinking about making the switch over to tech sales. Does anybody have an advice or opinions on what I should do and where I should look? And if it would be smarter to stay at cintas?
Curious on everyone’s thoughts. Started with a new company back in March of this year, and after having a handful of managers at my old company that were solid with personal development of their employees, my current manager at the new company could use work in that area…it’s non-existent. Due to reorgs, I’ll have a new manager soon and the initial feel is that this person focuses on personal development 👍🏻I’d like to somehow give my current manager feedback but not sure how or if I should 🤔
