Show of hands. Who feels like they’ve banked good visibility pre-Covid and will continue to coast as long as possible before picking up the pace again 👋
Been losing weight since the start of covid. Not a lot but around 1% of my total weight despite eating/snacking constantly (think ice cream, cheese cake). Anyone in the same situation? Lol
Anyone going out of the country in the next couple of months?
I ask, because I’m purchasing the FDA approved at home Covid testing kit that qualifies for US entry requirements. And I just need one test, it comes with 6 total. Looking for people that may need the other 5 🙂 DM me!
I’m burned out. I’m over my project and my firm. Trying to deal with it until the current COVID-19 situation settles. Anyone else get this way and feel that even a switch in projects wouldn’t help?
Why are brands addressing COVID-19 in their new ads but not sharing how they’re donating or contributing anything? Please share your thoughts
Has anyone seen other (covid round 3) applicants who received large scholarships when on paper it seems they shouldn’t have? I know someone at a M7 who has 2 YOE at a boutique consultancy, 720 GMAT, 3.8~ gpa from a top 70 Ugrad, is a ORM, has weak extracurriculars, and did their entire application in less than a month who not only got in, but received a ~80k scholarship.
I can’t think what might have made admissions think they deserved to get in with a large scholarship. Anyone have any ideas?
Marriott added 25 free nights this year due to Covid - if I hit 50 for platinum (inclusive of free nights) do I still get the suite night awards benefit?
Hey everyone - trying to figure out how much my wife and I can afford for our first place. Currently it'd be based off just my income (wife wrapped up RN program right before COVID and we decided to wait until things eased up before she got a position). Given that, we're okay with a high DTI knowing it would come down in a few months when she lands a role. I've seen the 28/36 DTI rules, but I've also heard 43% thrown around. Does anyone have any experience with a high DTI?
Had to temporarily stop breastfeeding my 17 month old for 2 days due to medication. Last 5 months ( due to covid) he hasn’t taken a bottle at all and I have been nursing him 2 to 3 times a day. Tips to cope the next 2 days 😭 I am going to pump and dump but having my kid ask and me refusing sounds brutal to him 😭. Any tips to help this mom out
Husband wanted to give his coworker a ride from the hospital to his house (he was hospitalized for covid -I guess his fam members are busy?). I told husband not to because he could potentially bring it back to me. He said he’ll take precautions but I’m still concerned. I rather we pay for his Uber ride back or something. Husband said no to that. What would you do?
My friend is upset with me because she wants to plan a trip abroad for a month this winter. I desperately want time away too, but I think it’s too risky and we shouldn’t be traveling unnecessarily. *sigh* covid is hard enough but now it’s hurting friendships.
I’ve been out of work for a significant amount of time due to Covid decimating my industry. Lots of interviews and a few final rounds. Today I finally got an offer. Pay is the best yet and team seems great. I just can’t help but feel a little disappointed bc it’s not the industry I was in/am passionate about/reason I went to law school. Is one bird in hand really better than two in the bush? Anyone have a similar situation? I’m worried about regret & giving up on my dreams.
So all the anti-covid folks are pretty quiet now that we have seen a steep incline of cases in states that reopened early (Florida, Texas, Georgia) 🤔
Day 14 of 6th grade. So far, I’ve received 4 general COVID notification letters and 1 close contact notification letter. At this rate we’ll be going back to virtual learning soon. 😔
Has anyone seen follow up studies demonstrably proving causation between vaccines and covid rate/ severity reduction? This is not political at all and I don’t care about your stance on vaccines, just genuinely curious because I haven’t been able to find it and would expect that there would be more/ better data at this point with all the natural experiments going on.
For those of you that got a booster and then got COVID, how did the symptoms compare between after shot and the virus? How about those who got 2 shots and then COVID?
Would you break up with a SO who refuses to get tested despite his roommate having COVID and still plans on seeing vulnerable and unvaxxed family for the holidays? He frequently downplays COVID, criticizes those who take it seriously, and makes up his own rules (“well we weren’t sharing drinks or anything just near each other”) when it comes to exposures and hasn’t told me ab them on many occasions. He knows full well I have immunocompromised family, but says he has the right to his opinion.
My aunt passed away today from covid-19. She was in NY and I live out of state so can't pay last respects. I don't know how I feel.
I’ve seen people post about industry jobs where you work 9-5 but throughout the week you really only do like 10 hours of work. Does this actually happen?
Any DC area girls going out in Dupont tonight?
TFW you thought you were on mute and screamed at your 🐱 for being on the counter. Using a lot of four letter words.
Do any schools still have their students act out the first Thanksgiving? We don't, but I have pictures of myself when I was in preschool in the 80s dressed like an "Indian". That would probably never fly today!
I have a friend coming over today and I’m making a charcuterie board for the first time. I’m having anxiety about it loll. I have a desserts board and a cheese and meats board. Shopping for all the items alone took forever and now setting them up seems like a huge challenge. Tips?
L.E.K. Consulting 🐠 how do you like your job? I already do mostly DDs where I’m at now, and you guys pay a bit more, so I’m considering starting the recruiting process. Any info is appreciated!
Google slowing hiring. Any views on what this looks like? In the middle of interviewing with them
Considering an offer for an FP&A role at a major investment bank. What are people's thoughts on this? Culture, type of work, pay, exit opps. Probably way better off financially than staying @ big4
Under what circumstances do companies waive the one year rule for paying back signing bonus/relocation? I started last August but got into business school (not sponsored) and want to leave in July
What should I wear for a zoom interview?

Perfect Sunday evening:🏃🏻♀️🛁 🍵📖 🎶😴
No joke. I was just practicing a pres on Google slides and I watched someone from my company start correcting grammar in my speaker notes (which are being deleted for client facing document). Do people really not have anything meaningful to add to the process?
I am looking to learn/earn more certifications. I am an IT Business Analyst. Currently, I have the following certifications: yellow belt, Scrum Master, POPM, hospitality & tourism management, and an academic IIBA certification. I am working on the following COCE Teaching, data analytics, and in the process of putting together my green belt project. Can you suggest any certifications? Can you suggest and salesforce certifications… that do not cost $2500? Any help would be appreciated.
It is confusing to call mbb as b3 when there is b4. How about Real3/R3? Real consulting...
