Today is my first day of my first IVF cycle. After getting the green light to start IVF based on my negative COVID test, baseline ultrasound and bloodwork, I feel relieved that this day has come after unsuccessfully trying to conceive naturally and with IUI, and even excited now. LET'S DO THIS!
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html
Have a friend in need of remote work (kid with bad lung disease at home, doesn’t want to risk bringing COVID home). He has a bachelors and masters degree in math but no formal business experience. What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?
I've seen that some lab levels can accurately predict mortality of COVID-19. What are you seeing in your practice?
Gained the COVID -19 (really only 10 pounds) but need to lose between 15-25. Been counting calories and mild exercise but we are interested in trying fasting but know nothing. How do you do IF right? When do you eat vs fast and what are the time frames? Do you eat only certain things on some fasts? Help appreciated
While I understand the risk involved, am I right in saying that travel to India from the US is not banned and only requires a negative COVID test ? Anyone who travelled this week ? Indian passport holder and need to travel urgently.
Any advice for recent/upcoming grads wanting to break into the industry but not able to find opportunities due to COVID? Thanks!
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
Have there been lay-offs at your company due to Covid? Which roles have been more impacted? What are severance packages like? It’s been shocking to me and I’m wondering if there will be another round of lay offs this year at my company.
The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
Yay!!! No more masks for the vaccinated in most stores! Even more excited to go to Costco than usual 😇
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
Would you do lunch for a first-time date? It’s a date and he said he’d be getting a Covid test the day before, but I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the risk. Thoughts?
Will I be at disadvantage in my job hunt if I told prospective employers that I was made redundant in previous job from covid?
Heard this comparison - Trump’s negligence on coronavirus is like a teacher encouraging students to go to the bathroom while an active shooter’s on campus
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️
Labor Day is coming up next week, and I'd love your thoughts on how we can recognize workers in this truly strange year. Maybe a mega thread in the Coronavirus Work-life bowl asking what it's been like to be a worker in the year 2020? Could be a cool time capsule to have people from different industries share their stories about what it's like to work through this. Any thoughts that come to mind?
What are some effective ways to stop checking mails frequently given that we are at home most of the time due to COVID. super stressed always, once I see the mail I feel the urge to reply or it’s constantly running in the back of my mind and I am not able to spend quality time with fam.
Anyone have insights to crankfrog? Have a potential director level consulting interview. I am in CA and not DC. Is there a disadvantage to being remote? Thank you!
Monday morning uber drivers that kindly wake you up when you somehow fall asleep in the 20 min ride to LGA >
I received an offer from one of the MBBs (Analyst position - banking benchmarks team). The offer briefly mentions that I'd receive performance bonus, but doesnt mention any range (% bracket). Nor does the compensation structure has any component of Performance Bonus (which is usually a part of TC) Should I ask the recruiter on this? What to do? Thanks in advance!
Anyone in here from AlixPartners How would you compare the work/comp/staff to Big4? Also is VP the equivalent to manager elsewhere?
Do any of the firms (Big 4/MBB) have a ban on charging strangers for mock case interviews? Heard of some people doing it as a side hustle, but sounds questionable
Anyone who struggles or struggled with an eating disorder? I was bulimic in college and some of law school. I feel like Covid and big law is dangerously pushing my eating habits.
I would love a post-busy season bonus, even an extra $1000 would go a long way and would be a nice way to say "thank you"
I have a phone interview tomorrow with Goldman Sachs for entry level Financial Analyst position. Can anyone guide me or give me tips on how to prepare for it?

Tried to help an older lady take her luggage down the stairs at Union Station (Chicago). She panicked and held onto her luggage very tight. On hindsight, (cont)

Anyone familiar with Accenture Federal Service’s Salesforce team and willing to give their thoughts on the team, interview process, or really anything 🙂 thanks!
Got 2 CDD case interviews coming up (Big D and another T2). What should I expect outside of a typical market sizing case?
Is switching roles after 6m. a bad idea? Like my current role, but opportunity presented itself for slightly higher pay at slightly better firm - is it justifiable in the current market or still considered rushed?
