Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
Hi, I am Oracle RMC Implementation Specialist. Laid off due to Covid. I work for a big4. Anyone hiring? Would appreciate any pointers.
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
Is Holland & Hart allowing attorneys back into their Denver office yet or no? Wondering how they stack up against other firms handling COVID
Why don't the insurance companies just say we won't pay for your care if you get covid and could have been vaccinated?
Any thoughts/insights on how the travel aspect would play out in PwC's Salesforce practice in the post COVID world? Will they want us to be on the road 4 days a week or it will be much more hybrid? If it's the latter, how much % of travel should someone working at PwC's Salesforce practice expect?
Mentally done with COVID. I’m fully vaxxed and will happily wear masks anywhere (hey saves lipsticks and sunscreen), but if we have to shut down again I’m going mad

My husband and I have concert tickets to a big outdoor festival that was cancelled for covid and is now happening in late August. His brothers and some college friends are flying in to stay with us. We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?
Does anyone have any leads of a healthcare agency in San Bernardino county in CA who contracts with employers who provides nurses -on call- for purposes of covid testing under the new CA regs for COVID?
Heelllppp! My husband accidentally left his grocery COVID disinfectant spray in the same spot where I keep my water spray bottle (they are unfortunately the same color) I sprayed a sweet red pepper plant with the mix generously and poured some in because the plant seemed dry. It’s 70% ethanol. What should I do?? Repot immediately with fresh soil?
I Have more sparetime now (Thanks Covid!) and I wanted to invest it in data skills related courses. I found one on data camp called "Data Skills for Business" and then was planning to continue with their "data analyst with Python" career track. What do you think of those two courses? Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻
How many of you took a break from work for more than a month? Does such breaks help? I don’t know if its covid effect on our work style or the 13-15 hour work days. I feel a complete break from internet would be amazing!!!
Advice needed: I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a while. Things are generally going well but when it comes to traveling to see each other I’m always the one making more of the effort to go to him. I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?
Anyone go off Mirena and just feel weird? I have been off for a week or so now and just feel off. Wondering if that is normal or if it’s just a side effect from covid exasperated with thinking that it could be a side effect from going off mirena..

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Deciding on 2 B4 offers, how do I tell the one I’m not taking? Email each person I interviewed with? Just the HR lady? Don’t want to burn bridges and have never been in this position before
My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market. Being a CPA is definitely better than not being one but will it hurt my exit opportunities if I decide to not pursue my license? Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
So reading up on salary threads.......why does it seem as if the EY US gets paid double the EY UK salary? For context, London graduate starting salary in Advisory is roughly £32k and our minimum tax is 20%.
I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.
anyone here in the PwC Bay Area Risk Assurance (Business Continuity) practice? How is the team and the culture?
Hi folks! I’m currently a PM intern at a big Chicago agency but I’m looking to transfer into strategy. I don’t think I will be getting an offer from my current agency as it seems they are focusing on hiring more senior level management. Is anyone hiring or does anyone have any leads/ someone who could refer me for a junior position? It would be much appreciated as a fresh grad. Thanks!! 🤠

Downside to being poached by your federal client? I like the team and the salary is comparable (less growth maybe but that's fine with me.)
