Recommendations for Hertz VS Avis out of LGA? Best codes to use? I have both loyalty programs but not enough points to be biased. Need to stick with one.
I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?
How do I improve my confidence? I’m in a wonderful long-term relationship and they travel weekly, this week in particular has been really hard and I’m feeling really alone. For the first time in my life I’m noticing physical symptoms from my distress/loneliness (panic attacks, exhaustion, SOB, etc.) No desire to hang out with my many friends here and no motivation to do anything really. The thought of calling anyone feels like a heavy burden. I cry easily and often. Has anyone experienced this?
Well, it seems that we’ll have plus version of covid, what’s next? Covid Premium 😔 https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/08/03/delta-plus-coronavirus-variant-explained/
Thought the travel grind would resume this month for me and just learned that I have atleast 3 more months without it. This makes me happy and also sad.
3 nights away from Marriott platinum. Does it reset at the end of the calendar EOY? If so, worth paying out of pocket for those 3 nights?
Does anyone know the EY corporate code for the Marriott? And if another big 4 corporate code will the overseas hotel ask for identification?
Just paid off my credit card debt that totaled a whopping 5-digits worth! ($XX,XXX) Took 7 months of sacrifice and making better life choices. I never wanna be in debt ever again!
People who hold conversations in hotel hallways in the middle of the night are the absolute worst. I can hear you through the two pillows sandwiching my head 😭
Critical question: I'm taking a Southwest flight Thursday night during RPDR. Does their on board TV have VH1?
Desi Fishes - I have one year OPT that ends in July 2019. 1) Can I travel outside country with less than 6 months of OPT? 2) Can I travel outside country 90 days before h1b is applied?
What is the executive order mainly expected to do - stop new visa applications or stop travel into the US for existing visa holders, or both?
A big wave of despair just hit me: realizing that delta is only getting started and with lambda and the dozens of other variations that exist in other countries, it’s hard to power through. Can’t ignore it cause we have a newborn but the isolation is going to be unbearable this time around.
How is the travel situation for everyone here? I’ve been WFH for over a year now, no end in sight!
If I already have United silver status (Marriott status match), is it still worth it to get the United explorer card? Up to 70k bonus, $0 intro fee then $95 after (will downgrade after a year to Gateway $0 fee card)
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet
"URGENT: Status Match" - my subject line to make sure Virgin status matched me before my United status expired. Somehow it worked and they matched me within 24 hours. #justintime
Why can't American Airlines better predict delayed departure times? They changed my flight time forward 90mins, back to on-time, forward an hour, told me it was in air, then cancelled. #frustrated
Does anyone know what an experienced VP or SVP of corporate development makes with an all in package? I’m still in initial interviews but have been told that based on my own current total comp that I would be satisfied. Would love to understand the market as I’m not an executive now.
Anyone able to help answer a couple LEK questions? Interested in applying with 2.5YOE in healthcare consulting.

B4 STAFF/SENIORS (Any service line) - What does your firm do to match you with work experiences/projects that align with your career interests/preferences (Or, do they do this at all?) Is staffing all just based on your network and hoping for the best, or do any firms/service lines take preferences and skills into account? If so, how? EY Deloitte PwC KPMG

Meeting with a partner in SaT at EY for valuation. Any advice on things I can ask about or ways I can prepare? Currently a consultant in another big 4 breaking into valuation. Thanks!
I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to get out and vote for candidates that are PRO EDUCATION! Our votes can impact us, our students, our colleagues, etc. (By the way, our Union shared how many educators are not taking advantage of voting and those votes would have flipped some races to PRO EDUCATION CANDIDATES!).
EY is hiring lawyers. DM for job description.
Creative ideas on saying goodbye to great client needed: Hi folks. Ive been working for the last year with an enormously nice client (VP) and we have a super great working relationship. I was managing the project myself as primary contact for him. Here in Europe, covid still impacts travels. I will be rolling off the project in 5 weeks and just saying Goodbye via a teams meeting feels not being enough. Any creative ideas on how to gracefully saying thx and goodbye?

Where can I go to find a list of the different city tiers in the United States? Google searches aren’t working.
I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.
