Planning, errr.., will be planning a trip to Argentina soon ( Covid A.D.), has anyone here visited? Any suggestions? No rush, I got some time :)
Over the last 12 months my role changed significantlu so in Jan I approached the CEO about a raise and promotion more in line with my work and he said yes - but not until until the end of Q1 when budgets are finalized. Covid hit and I was told all promotions and raises were put on hold. I never got a Q2 review bc my manager said the raise was up in the air still. But on Friday the CEO sent an email listing 17 promotions, not including me. Im meeting w my manager tomorrow but idk what to say.
For NICU nurses - from your experience and what you have seen, can a nurse with one year experience working on a general medicine/covid-19 unit land a job in the NICU? What do you think would make someone stand out in a pool of experienced applicants?
Do people really have to work late night in advertising agency? I'm new to the industry like I graduated a year ago from an average college with some high hopes to dive into a professional agency, working in an average company but thank god I got the job in this Covid crises, yet underpaid and working for atleast 12 to 13 hrs a day, and someday the working hrs surpasses, isn't there any regulatory that can help people like us for our well being? Or help us get money, in return of our health?
Moved to Raleigh during COVID and have been working remotely since. Looking for local Audit manager/internal audit manager/risk management type of roles, anyone knows any companies are hiring?
Hi! I know I’m being underpaid at my current job but due to Covid and being unemployed I need a job. I’m currently looking but having no luck with the salaries being offered. Feeling stuck. I have my MBA and over 10 years of Marketing experience. I need some help shifting my search. Any advice or recommendations are welcomed.
Read this comment earlier and it got me to thinking... is withholding information from the public in the name of behavior control contributing to the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories? It seems if they really wanted to maximize uptake, they would be upfront and honest about to benefits to both the individual and the society. It harkens back to when Fauci and the surgeon general told people to not buy or wear masks, in order to reduce demand, then later walked it back.
Has anyone had a kid test positive for covid who is also asthmatic? Can you share your treatment protocols, particularly for making them more comfortable? My son is 21 months and doing okay. His oxygen levels are good. But he’s so congested... Merry Christmas.
Who are the pharma copy folks who ate doing all the Covid vaccine work? How do you like the work? Intense? I imagine it can be difficulty having rethink all your work every Monday based on whatever story broke in the Sunday Times.
Our company usually does performance evaluations in June of each year. Our pay philosophy is not clear. We usually give a COLA in January each year, somewhere around 2% and if an employee performed well, they get above the 2%. I have suggested we change our process to have a clear pay philosophy with increases tied to performance, with goals tied to overall goals of the organization. What is your process? Are you doing performance evals during COVID?
Is there anyone who could formally help me petition the court of appeals under Rule 520.14 for a waiver of strict compliance to the Rule 520.6? I graduated in the UK and meet the requirements to sit for the Bar Exam but I got a decision from the Board of Examiners saying I can't because I attended some online classes. However, that was because of covid and it was just for the last month out of 4 years of legal education. Thanks for the help.
Left a job before COVID-19 and wanted to take some time to figure out what’s next. Now I feel the need to find something (anything). Any wisdom for someone who doesn’t even know what they want to do?!
Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
Anyone else out there reeling at the number of working moms that had to drop out of the work place due to covid? I’m so saddened by that news and it feels like all the “progress” women made was just a lot of head-patting nonsense by the men who are still and always were really in charge 😐
Has anyone successfully negotiated a rent decrease with their apartment complex due to Covid? If so how much? Looks like the apartment rental market is crushed and that it will be cheaper to leave current apartment
Hi all- looking for some good advice. I am currently trying to secure a job for September. I’ve always wanted to go corporate (eventually transactional work although I am open to litigation). However, I do not have corporate experience. The only internship that would have gave me the same was cancelled in summer 2020 (Covid). I am willing to put in the work to succeed in the field. Just struggling trying to find a firm to give me a chance going from a family to business. Any thoughts?

I have this weird huge anxiety around sending out emails to my BU. Personally, it’s because I’ve received feedback that I’m not concise or clear in my written communication. I’m trying to be patient and gracious with myself, & have been reading books to improve my vernacular. I also send my email drafts to my manager first, & she’s been supportive and improving them for me. Which is great! But I feel a tad embarrassed. Any tips on how to regulate that feeling, & improve written comm?

I received a 2 year continued service agreement costing $12,000 in effect fot individuals who 'leave voluntarily' within the allotted timeframe. Will I actually have to pay for the costs of training if I don't end up liking the job? Are these enforceable? What are the parameters of 'leaving voluntarily?' Thank you!
How do you guys feel about pets in the office? Personally they are very annoying and inconsiderate. I have a manager who brings Tinstletoe in every day and Tinstletoe (who names their dog a seasonal name?? Or wtf is that name even?) isn't even potty trained, but it's always "easy to wipe up". I have found some messes in the kitchen and have been the one to "wipe up" before. It happens maybe once a month type frequency. She's sort of a tyrant of a person in the office so no one really wants to talk to her about it, but then Tinstletoe runs the show. We have another person in the office who has a really well behaved dog, and everyone loves that one and would be "devastated" to lose her, but then we're stuck with TT because no one has the heart, or the backbone to get rid of these animals. (in the office I mean...)
As an intern I’m starting to doubt my love for the industry. At first I was excited and i know I’m just an intern but everyday I feel super sad that i gotta go to the office and basically push pixels

Went for my first appointment after the egg retrieval and the doctor found a few cysts. So we postponed it to the next cycle. I didn't realise I would have to wait for another. He had given a birth control option but I just thought it would be better to wait for the natural cycle.
Can anyone educate me on these cysts? I dont find many articles about cysts after egg retrieval

I am a 32 year mom of a 8 year old. For the last 5+ years I am tired all the time. I could literally sleep 10 hours a night and love taking 2 hr naps during the day. I’ve gone to 3 diff family docs and all of them have run blood tests and came back normal. I work in PA so I do have a random sleep schedule but always get ~8hrs/night. Could it be a food allergy (like gluten) or slight deficiencies in several vitamins? Hormones that aren’t tested for? Any ideas?

Am I the only one who isn’t a blind loyalist to one political party? It’s quite annoying when people can’t admit when someone in their political party does something stupid. Nothing specific here, but I’m just curious why it seems that most people will defend defend defend no matter what. Just tell it how it is. Should just get rid of the political parties so people have to actually know who they’re voting for and can’t just vote for someone because “I always vote xyz”…

When did Trump go grey/stop dying his hair?
Trump had one job as a leader. Be a leader to all and give his best to his abilities. Unfortunately he took advantage of the position and kept dividing the country, he upset a lot of people and just believed his base will win him a second term, very bad idea Trump. 4 years ago when he won I was not happy but I wanted him to succeed and prove us all wrong. He failed woefully, he is done out here!!!
