Hello, I have 4.5 years of NYS WC authorizations for orthopedic. I also have experience as a front office supervisor at a hotel. Any suggestions on a career move? I feel really stagnant where I am right now and I feel very under paid for the amount of labor I have to put in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
Anyone traveled to India in last couple of weeks?
1) did India immigration require Covid test for vaccinated individuals?
2) did airlines still ask for it (I’m taking united)
3) for a 4 year old with no vaccine assume I still need a Covid test before flying?
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.
My husband is a doctor and is getting offers from both cities as well as smaller towns/more rural spots. One place we're considering is a very small city but is close to mid-sized city and an airport to travel elsewhere. We currently live in a big HCOL
The weird thing about his job is that he gets paid way more in smaller cities and towns over bigger, more known city. Given that he would get paid more and the COL is lower, we're thinking maybe we should consider a smaller city. Contd
Going to Turkey in mid December through new year for honeymoon. We’ll spend 5 days in capadoccia and 5 in Istanbul. Looking for recommendations for hot air balloon ride and tours in capadoccia (goreme). The hotel offers arranging these but idk if they’re overcharging and probably commission based. Thanks!

What should I expect to pay in foreign transaction fees, etc. using a credit card outside of USA? Is it better to use cash for as much as possible?
A lot of colleagues asking if they have COVID on their clothes, and the answer is probably not. As we move through the world, we create little air currents that move these droplets around
Did Slalom ever have a covid vaccination policy in place, like a condition of employment? Thank you.

Has anyone of you taken your Covid jab from the vaccination drives being conducted at Infosys Chandigarh/Mohali DC? If yes, how was your experience?
I’m a mess right now. My house hold all tested positive for Covid. My 5yr old has it and I can’t sleep because I’m just worried. I’ve done everything I can do at the moment. As a mother you are always second guessing. I just feel like shit.
At what point are people less likely to change? Went on a date with a guy in his early 40's. The problem is that he rarely takes trips or goes on vacation. He seems to make decent, but not consulting money I love to travel and will typically visit two to three new countries a year and take a full 5 to 6 weeks off.
Would a silver elite status on Marriott Bonvoy give one privileges to request a 5pm checkout ? I used to be able to do that with spg platinum.

FET - has anyone done 2 rounds of letrozole for a transfer? I did one round of 5mg daily, but at my day 13 scan it still looks the same as baseline, so my doc wants me to do another round of 7.5mg right away. Seems strange, and I’m debating asking to just fully scrap the cycle and go to HRT…

Looking to transition to McK or BCG one day (hopefully soon). Curious if there are certs that are more common (eg LSSBB, PMP, or any other certs) with practitioners?
In progress of interviewing with McK and final interview date is currently set for July 8th but I’m also coming up on final offers with the other companies I’m interviewing with pretty quickly and not sure if I can push off accepting or declining with them until July 8… would McK move up my final interview if I let them know the situation?
MBB Interviewers: I know the bar & I’m not there. Would it be terrible to tell those who’ve offered to refer me (lateral hire) that I’d want to wait until 2021 to interview? Friends say I’m crazy & that they don’t see any lateral hiring in Jan-March, but my understanding was most MBBs hire year round (pre-MBA). The thought of waiting another year to re-apply is scary. Please help!

Bain vs BCG. Both are associate level for the Boston office. Would really appreciate insights on the following:
1. Industry expertise/ease of getting staffed into industry of choice: hoping to do more CPG/retail and stay away from healthcare/education
2. Support for intl employees: both companies claim that they’ll transfer you to a foreign office for a year and then back to the US office, should h1b fall through. Is that true?

2Y MBA here will be joining McKinsey next year after graduation. I just got an email from McKinsey HR saying my background and social media checks are cleared. However, it is also mentioned in the email that aside from the MBA degree verification after my graduation, “a reinvestigation may also be required If your initial background screening has cleared more than 60 days prior to your start date.” Do they really do background checks again? It takes a long time lol.
Just got an interview at BCG for entry level. Anyone have tips or recommendations? I have cased before, but wondering if there is anything BCG specific I should consider.
