EY already internally discussed reclassifying everyone as permanent remote and cutting salaries (I’m a senior but a partner mentioned it in passing and I purposely didn’t follow up)

Agree.

I am at a point in my job search (2+ years, laid off 5 months before COVID) where I’m really starting to think the career I have chosen doesn’t want me back. I worked in HR previously, and I have no idea where or how to start figuring out a new career path. I’m stable money-wise for now. But with the student loan repayments coming active again soon, the money situation will get tighter.Any advice on changing careers after 40? Much appreciated!

I’m planning a 12 guest wedding in November, fully outdoors with social distancing and many preventative measures in place.

I’ve read about it, but if anyone’s willing to tell me what they know it would be help. My friends are pretty much like me so they’ve never heard of it.

Thoughts on living in Hoboken? I currently have apt in East Village but haven’t moved due to covid and lease expires soon. I’m starting to like the idea of Hoboken, especially since my office will be in Hudson Yards. Post-covid, I also think I’m less tied to living inside Manhattan too. I want space and feel like I could maybe even keep my car with me in Hoboken. Seems generally cheaper too, but I’m less concerned about price than quality of life. Would definitely prefer more bang for $. Thanks!
