My fiancée and I were originally both attending his friend’s out of town wedding, long story short because of COVID they cut the guest list and now only married +1s are invited so I am out. Should my fiancée still go? I told him to go if he wants, I won’t be upset but he seems really turned off by the approach and his friend keeps texting him asking him if he’s going
I’m dating a guy and they were quite sick + run down last weekend + I checked in with them to see how they were + ended up looking after them a bit when I met up with them as they were still really run down. They text me after saying it meant so much to them + they are really falling for me. But this week I caught covid so I’m isolating and they have barely even text me to see how I am. Im feeling annoyed and I’m finding it a bit off putting - am I overreacting or would this bother you too?
Which firms have strong public sector strategy practices outside of McK and BCG? Thinking in terms of projects such as digital strategy for a federal agency, COVID response plans, K-12 education restructuring roadmap
Not so much PMO or tech implementation projects
Going to Hawaii for about 2 weeks. I used to get sugared pre-covid but haven’t since. 1) I’m so scared of the pain since my tolerance is probably low again. 2) I forgot since it’s been so long but if I get it done the day before our flight/the first day there, will it last the duration of the trip or will I need to get a touch up/shave at some point?
Any advice on how to find opportunities with only a year and half experience? COVID19 has made job hunting difficult and I am sick of IBM at this point.
Never like during covid-19 I experienced absurd situations with clients! Now, I’m waiting for our legal team to get back to me but I’m so impatience to hear some opinions from the community!
Background: we pitched and we won a new global client. We are currently under negotiation with them. SOW- new branding, new positioning strategy, and new global communication. Today I received from them an email with a list of ”collaborators” and I found out (... Continue in comment)
If you want a COVID vaccine simply plan a quick trip to the Southeast US. Literally can’t get people to take them and there are thousands going unused.
To all those who say “he couldn’t have done more for COVID”. Here’s an example from current day:
I’m building a site where you can find travel recommendations from your friends and family!
It seems like I’m not the only one who asks around for word of mouth suggestions (looking at the posts on this bowl 🙂).
With all of the travelling that we do (pre/post covid) I know you all have great recommendations from personal, flex, and work travel.
It’ll be launching soon so please sign up if sounds like something you’d use - I’d also love to get your thoughts!
I have a 3rd interview today for a recruiting position in Healthcare. This would be to staff RN for critical care unit at a local hospital. I'm not quite sure about job security due to a nursing shortage and nurses not wanting to conform to facilities covid guidelines. Anyone have any insight on the Healthcare field right now?
The CoronaVirus must be exceptional “smart”. It appears to have all its risks disappear during protests. If there’s no issues with the protesters gathering for days on end then there’s no issues with people going to restaurants, the gym, the barber shop, the store, youth sports, events, concerts, National and local parks, etc. Open America.
Read an article about people impacted by COVID job loss. One was $5K behind in rent and facing eviction once the eviction ban expires. She had previously been making $13 an hour. Assuming no government intervention, the only way I can see out of that would be bankruptcy which would destroy credit, potentially making it harder to get another rental property. What are the other long term implications on people like this? Are there any other realistic ways people can get out of this situation?

A good friend of mine has formed some pretty legit friendships using Bumble BFF in the city she recently moved to. It’s inspired me to get over my preconceptions & try it out when I move next year.

Thoughts on how bad the coronavirus will be after this weekend/think they will lockdown everything again if the daily case rate gets higher?
living at home with my parents and they both tested positive for covid this week. I haven’t felt so great this past week, and I’ve most probably caught it from them. Going to get tested tomorrow as well. That being said, we’re going into our heaviest week of busy season. I know I should be able to take time off cause of covid but I feel bad. Like I could sit in front of my laptop and do work, but my body feels so weak and sometimes I’m a little slow. (Cont.)

How does HR/Comp at your companies feel about disclosing salary ranges to candidates? I know pretty much all of my peers feel it would make the candidate's experience better and our jobs easier, since no one would be wasting their time. I've heard some arguments in favor of not disclosing, and there is a certain degree of logic behind some of them, but I'm wondering what those arguments at your companies, and if it's something you feel is warranted or not.
