I don’t have a tribe, but I’d like to have one. This lifestyle, pre-Covid anyway did a number on my social life. Maybe I watch too much tv but how are people finding their girlfriends? 😭 for reference I’m 26!
Curious to know where folks are from and which state do you live in right now? (Ignore relocation because of Covid). I'll start, NJ > NJ
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
My work was very understaffed prior to COVID. I hope the healthcare industry learns from this experience and increases staffing appropriately.
Folks that have recovered from covid which symptoms took the longest to wear off? I just had cough and mild fever.. I’m into week 4 but cough just doesn’t seem to go away, any advice/tips?
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Are virtual therapy sessions as effective as in person? I’ve never been to therapy but want to work on my anger issues because they’re only becoming worse as the Stress from life and Covid become worse. Has anyone started therapy virtually through the pandemic?
Do you think Alvarez & Marsal will require employees to get a covid booster shot and/or seasonal flu shot?
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
How is everyone with COVID-19 symptoms feeling today? I’m in week 3 and still fatigued and coughing, smell is back!
What is your firm doing to boost internal networking? How have you been meeting people within your firm but outside of your service line since covid started? Anything in particular you think works?
I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.
Since the start of the pandemic, I have been fairly safe and really haven’t gone anywhere (I think I went to TJ Maxx once in a moment of weakness lol). My family on the other hand hasn’t taken any precautions and actually did contract COVID. They keep telling me I’m paranoid and need to start going out but with COVID being worse now than it was back in March, I rather just not. I just want them off my back and wish they would respect my decision to not expose myself like I respected them.
Signed up for a job that’s 80% travel. Realistically- how much is it now? (Covid- post covid)
I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?
For those who’ve had Covid, did your cough come and go? I’m having pretty bad coughing attacks in the morning but resolving itself by midday. Hoping it’s just allergy symptoms but wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience that turned out to be Covid
Today marks 6 months since my dad died from Covid. Thinking about all of you who lost loved ones during this difficult time
For those in Advisory and not pursuing their CPA, what are the other credentials you can use for promotion to senior?
What is the culture like at Facebook? Thinking of exiting into a product owner role or just general pmo type of role. Good company to work for?
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Question: does your agency have a dept called “Delivery” ? And if so, is this a Creative or Production (or project mgt?) function? If it’s not one of those, what is it’s role? Thank you!
How long did it take for EY to get back to your with offer decision? Had final interviews last week just wondering what people’s experience was
Hi Fishes, I have an interview scheduled with Infosys this weekend for Pega technology (Pega Developer role). Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
How many of you bout to get deported because of the H1B lottery? Relocation (country) ideas?
I’ve got a PWC FDD case study interview soon. Any tips on how best to prepare/what to expect? I’ve already read through other posts and they’ve mentioned to understand the types of due diligence adjustments that occur, EBITDA adjustments, and QoE analysis. Can someone suggest a good resource to prepare? (Apart from me googling) Thank you!
I had an interview that I severely bombed (nerves got me) and obvi didn’t move forward. Is it a smart move to reach out to the interview and say 1) I didn’t accurately represent myself and 2) after...
Are people still applying after only 2 years in consulting? Seems common for MBB but I wonder how you built solid recommendations / experience in so little time post-undergrad.
Deloitte 🐠 had my first round interview with the recruiter about a week back. She said she will get back to me with 2 days. Should I follow up now or it’s too soon.
Probably within 1 year of manager promotion, is it short sighted to leave before the promo?
Interviewing with Accenture with a range of $175 -185k for first year Senior Manager. It seems low to travel for 4 days a week. What’s typical for 1st year SMs?
I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship. Is it just something that ATS doesn't screen for usually? I'd hope a human is actually reading my resume. I don't want to be that person that says "yes, it's on my resume" lol
Imagine if this virus hit thirty years ago. If it wasn't for the internet, allowing WFH and communications, the economy would basically collapse. It could be alot worse.
Surface Pro vs MacBook Pro for work. What’s your experience been? I travel frequently, so the Surface Pro is quite tempting. But being able to iMessage from the MacBook is very appealing
Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
Quitting 2 weeks before full year without another job line up. Stupid decision? Need to pay back sign on bonus.
