Bring snacks. When they ask you if you want water or a bathroom break say yes. Positive mantras and power poses in the bathroom/elevator/between interviews. Firm hand shakes, eye contact. You got this!

Currently without employment and in a bit of a dilemma: My non preferred company did a bait and switch with the role, took a month to get me the e-contract with start date TBD (2-3 weeks down the line). My preferred company is interviewing super slowly, the position is senior, pay is great and commute is lower. Ok to tell non preferred to wait longer or will it make HR mad at me and take the offer away?

Need thoughts and opinions on a potential moving I’m thinking about. Due to COVID-19, I’m currently living at home with parents in a suburb. I’ve always intended to move to NYC in August/September but am wondering if I should rethink this decision. A couple specific questions: - Is rent in NYC cheaper due to COVID? - For people in city, have residents still been engaging in social life (e.g., apartment hangouts, Central Park)? What’s the dating scene like?
