Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working.

Does anyone know if MBB (Toronto) is hiring a lot these days? Currently working at big 4 (manager) with no case interview experience/ no mba … thinking it would at least take me 2-3 months to prep and network. Would trying to get in by Jan be too late? Also, my spouse is thinking of potentially moving to the states next year. Do you know if US MBB helps new hire with their H1B visa? (Understand it may be difficult but want to check if it’s worth trying)

With the new covid surge, is anyone else really hesitant to sign a new apartment lease? My lease is up next month, and I pay more to live walking distance from my office and I don’t want to move to burbs if we come back soon, but I don’t want to be stuck paying more in downtown for no reason if this is until January. Kinda hard to plan out the next 12 month in so much uncertainty.
