Confession: got “fat” during COVID and getting back to me now. Appreciate what it means now. 🤷♂️
I have an H1b which I received in 2019 and was valid till august2021, due to covid I wasn't able to travel and then I switched to another firm last year in November. If I get visa transfer, will it provide me a validity back as I haven't used any on site time on that visa.
I have completed MBA last year. Last year because of COVID, I and my family were severely affected because of which I didn't join the job.
This year, in January, I got an offer letter from a startup of nearly 13.5lpa but i didn't join it because they were asking to do a 15-16hour shift on daily basis. Now I'm looking for a job.
So while negotiating, can i use that offer letter? And how? Because companies will get to know that that offer is of Jan 2022.
Anyone know if you could reschedule an interview in the scenario you test positive for Covid?
Who pays for all the hospital and other costs when someone has to be treated for COVID? Are people going bankrupt?
I have been in IA consulting for 4 years but I feel very lost in my career because it’s just not the kind of work I enjoy at all. Do I go for IA in industry? And entirely new field? My morale since covid has been so low and it’s difficult to think these things through sometimes.
I’m 1 year post-MBA and was just let go despite top performance results—firm is not acknowledging COVID layoffs, though. Given 5+ YOE w/background in tech sales could BizOps be a fit? TIA!
Has anyone used a justice of the peace for a small (couple and two witnesses) COVID wedding? The city hall weddings still aren't available and I'm helping a friend find an officiant on short notice. Any help would be great!
Anyone working from abroad (EU, India etc.) due to being stuck due to COVID? Is your firm supporting it from an immigration / tax perspective? It doesn’t seem smart to try to come back right now even if flights are open given the risk of both catching COVID and burdening the NHS
If you have to travel during COVID, it was helpful to have CLEAR. Less physical contact and don’t have to take off your mask. To confirm your identity stand in front of the screen to scan your eyes (with your mask on) and then scan your ticket with your phone.
Record breaking covid surge but I don’t want to give up ANOTHER vacation. Going to Bryce/Zion next week....is it still safe to fly there/rent a car?
For those who have had COVID recently, how many days after you started experiencing symptoms was it until you were feeling better? I recently contracted it and feel like I need to cancel calls since my voice is MIA.
Is firm travel back up to pre covid levels?
16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
How is everyone doing presently in the Oil and Gas world (mentally, physically, emotionally)? We appear to have survived one of the two "black swan" events, but COVID still looms.
Is going to Milestones worth it? I’ve been for other promotions and wondering how this is different. Not sure I want to mingle with such a huge group of travelers in a COVID world, and have to figure out childcare if I bring my spouse. What did others with kids do?
Two cases of the Corona virus in Fulton County. Be safe out there. I'm definitely not going to the office for the First Friday events.
I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.
All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.
How should I approach her in the upcoming year?
Can I get any benefits out of unused leaves for this year, which is already carried over by last year?
