Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”
Question, please. I started receiving the advance child tax credit last month. I’m eligible since I filed married filing jointly in 2020, but was the only one working. My wife started working again last month and with that, it’ll put us over the $150K threshold. What will be the net impact of this since I’ll have to repay I believe. Not so clear to me based on IRS guidance.
I have received an offer for a 50% increase in TC to go into a Sales (Solutions Consultant) role. I don’t really want to leave consulting as I left sales 3 years ago to go back to consulting. However my wife and I are expecting and she will no longer work after we have our child. As much as a I don’t want to jump again or go back to sales I’m at an impasse between doing work I enjoy or living (and paying) for the life we enjoy. Anyone experience this dilemma before? Thoughts or advice? ￼
I’ve turned 27 years old today and my father doesn’t give a shit about it. We didn’t celebrate. He yelled at me for waking up too late (it was 11am and I live in my own apartment). My family is here just to visit. I come from an immigrant family FYI. It’s like we’re not allowed to have fun somehow and always focused on work and chores. I hate all this negativity… Been patient and trying to stay patient.
I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
If anyone is in the ATL area and looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
How do you overcome the anxiety when a parent messages you angrily? I sent out letters to parents of kids who had a D or an F and offered some suggestions and this parent took it as me telling her what to do and insulting her.
Anyone else get irrationally bothered by spastic typers? The kid in the cube next to me POUNDS on his keyboard with sudden flurries of frenzied typing and slams on the backspace and return keys.
Hello, my husband wants me to go india and bring his mother who is old and sick to the states. She has the proper visa to travel here and we are Citizens. Please confirm if the current laws will allow this.
Ladies, how do you know if your husband is a father material? My husband is in eager talks about us having children while I am on the fence. My dad took 80% care for me when I was young(cooking, cleaning, diapers, bottle feeding, etc) so my expectations for a father is way higher. My husband, seems to be still in the stage of transitioning from bachelor to husband, like he takes out trash, cook once per week, do laundry (no folding)when I ask. Not sure if that’s what it takes for me to predict.
Anyone here go to daycare as a child while your parents worked? Do you feel like it impacted your relationship with your parents today? My daughter goes to daycare while I work and I want to make sure we have a great relationship despite not being together 24/7.
That moment when the call admin mutes your line when your kid starts crying in the background...
Has anyone taken a few years off after having a baby? What was it like getting back into the workforce?
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
33 F. All of my friends are having babies. I get really lonely when they aren’t available because they are either tired from child rearing or are actively rearing their children. Happens every weekend, lots of evenings. On top of it, I feel outside of female work groups because I don’t have kids and just can’t talk about the things they talk about. I don’t know how to make this feeling go away, but being exhausted and putting my career on the line for a kid is not the answer. Anyone else?

Blunt message I give to 1st years: "Everyone assumes you have the skills and knowledge of a toddler. Don't talk about what classes you took or your internship. Say and be open to anything."

Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?

For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*
Does anyone have any general sense of salary ranges for a Paid Media Director client-side? Would be overseeing in-house media execution—not overseeing an agency.
At this point all I care about is salary what would result in your opinion most money •CFP •CPA •prestigious MBA •CFA •CAIA •coding boot camp I’m at $85k now
Anyone know the TC ranges for the Policy and Government Relations teams at FAANG? I usually see Manager roles but haven’t seen much in terms of comp. Think 10-12 years of consulting/tech policy/Hill staffer experience in a HCOL area. I know this question is pretty broad.

Any firms that have made the "work from home" decision yet? We've been getting preparation notices for weeks but not officially given the signal.
Attending Appalachian State University for athletic reasons as I played baseball here. Will finish my degree in Supply Chain Management in December. I want to break into consulting in the supply chain and operations sector in NYC. I would love to connect with anyone in Big 4 - Deloitte , KPMG, PwC, EY and MBB to get some insight on the college recruiting cycle coming up. Currently have a 3.81 GPA, family startup company experience, and restaurant industry experience.
How did you guys handle leaving an agency to go to another one? I plan to leave my current spot if I get the offer I’m interviewing for, but I have not given anyone the inclination that I’m looking for other roles. I’ve just started convos to see if it’s possible to get a raise or promotion in the near future, but no answers yet. Just don’t want to burn any bridges or blindside anyone. I’ve been around for about 10 months now
