Covid is a paradox. It simultaneously sucks and blows.

I'm not going to say what I was going to say because OP said keep it clean. But a good way to get over that covid sucking and blowing stuff is to find someone who's willing to do the same for you 😂

Is it bad to switch firms to move states in the middle of a pandemic? I live in LA now, but considering relocating to ATX. I am close to manager but wondering if it matters if I make manager and then switch firms. Reason for ATX is the social aspect wouldn’t be much different and significantly cheaper than my current situation with a higher quality of living. Savings would be Astronomical, I am hearing about opportunities currently, is it a bad idea to do this in the middle of a pandemic?

I was in sales and trading (quasi front office) as an Associate with a big 5 and had done internships in sales and trading and equity research (both front offices) with a big 5.

I am not keen on building a long-term career in credit rating. Therefore, looking for suggestions on outside opportunities I could explore.

I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.

While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.

Is it unreasonable to ask a new job to include language in offer letter regarding hybrid work? I want a guarantee that I can be remote at least 3x/week. Scared that they’re just saying it’s fine for now and will likely continue, and then boom one day management will decide 5x/week on-site required.

How are your offices handling positive cases? We had an employee test positive Friday, but was in the office every day while still waiting on her results (did not tell anyone she had gotten tested). I’m concerned that everyone exposed to her last week is now at risk, but no word on whether or not they will quarantine at this point. I was remote all week, but planned to go in some next week. I am concerned about exposing myself to those people if they didn’t quarantine or get tested themselves.
