He is doing something about covid. He's waiting for it to disappear. One day he will be right
I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.
Anyone know of outdoor/drive thru COVID testing in the city? Bonus points if it’s close to Wicker or Lincoln Park
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course). I’ve created a market research survey for the concept and this group is the perfect target market to provide thoughtful responses. I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2
How are people in long distance relationships coping? We used to see each other every 2 months before covid but I literally have no idea when I'll see my bf next and it bothers me more than it bothers
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.
As a fully-vaccinated person, what should I think about plans to meet with an unvaccinated person who’s recently recovered from “a really bad flu”(+lost sense of smell)/“definitely-not-COVID”?
Did anyone get a COVID exposure notification on their phone today? Mine is dated for “7 days ago” so I’m confused
The NYC health commissioner is recommending that anyone who attended Electric Zoo be tested for Covid https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/15/nyregion/electric-zoo-covid-cases-infection.html
Anyone here caught both the original covid as well as the UK strain? How different did you feel between the two?
Is an MBA going to be relevant 5/10/15 years down the line post-COVID — considering how we have all evolved the way in which we source candidates/talent? Fielding for opinions here, because I’m curious! What do you think will replace it? How do you think schools will evolve? We all love M7/T15-20, but will it hold the same amount of prestige and/or power as it does today?
Has anyone recovered from COVID but continued to test positive? Did this mess up any travel plans for places that require a negative test? Currently COVID positive (mild symptoms thank goodness) and have a trip to Hawaii planned for Christmas. Wondering if I should try to get refunds while it’s still possible or take the chance and hope my tests come back negative by then. Would appreciate any advice!
Does anyone at Accenture have insight on if candidates that received verbal offers prior to Covid-19 will still get written offers within the coming months?
Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.
Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
I was swarmed with work in June and until 10 days ago, now everything's gone silent again. I'm guessing it's directly related to the COVID uncertainty (e.g. 2nd waves and all). Until we have a vaccine we won't be making a lot of money, I guess. I'm on track to bill 1750 hours this year if I'm lucky.
Need opinion.. am I screwed?? Admission officer from LBS reached out for a quick 1:1 after seeing my interest. I scheduled an appointment for today but had to cancel yesterday last minute more than 24 hours before because my moms surgery was moved up due to covid so I had to take care of her. I explained I had a family matter and rescheduled for next week. I just got an automated email that my appointment was canceled with no reasoning 😭

Anyone take courses/get a degree from Harvard Extension School? Experience? Was it worth it? Are you also able to build a network? Realize it’s not like an MBA, but that doesn’t fit my life now .

Moms with 3+ kids - what changed from 2 to 3+? We just found out the third is on the way, and while I'm thrilled, I want to make sure we set up for success. Husband also works full time so we have a full time nanny, but is 3 too much for one person? One will be in full time school by the time baby arrives. Anything you wish you had been prepared for or done differently?
