Help. Feel like since covid the work is extremely transactional, I’m bored, and all of my coworkers are leaving.
For teachers who are back to school already, are there Covid spikes? Closures? How is your district handling it?
Post-Covid hair loss: I caught a severe case of Covid 90 days ago which hospitalized me. I’m now losing an extreme amount of hair every day. Does anyone have any tricks to stop the hair loss? I am using minoxidil, red light therapy, Nixon shampoo system & hair vitamins. I’m at a compete loss!
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
During Pre-Covid times did EY go anywhere OOS or another city for training or was it just at the regular office?
What is the probability that there will be an adverse long term side effect of the covid vaccines? This seems to be the main driver of vaccine hesitancy. I recall Dr Fauci saying that any vaccine side effects manifest within the first few months of the injection, and that long term side effects of any vaccine are non existent.
I have become so behind at work due to difficulties getting it together (mentally — depression, stress, Covid anxiety, etc) and having issues figuring out how to get back on track. There is nobody internal who could help me, it is on me. Trying to tackle the quicker items on the list first and will work up to the rest. Tips for 1. communicating mental health interference in a way that doesn’t sound like an excuse but as an FYI/let’s figure this out, and 2. rebuilding trust internally?
Poll - What is a bigger problem/concern for you right now: the COVID19 Virus itself or the COVID19 Policies?
A little TMI but I need some tips- gained a TON of weight during quarantine (almost 40 lbs), lost almost 1/2 of it so far. I realized a lot of the extra weight/fat I still have left to lose is in my b🍈🍈bs. I obviously know there’s worse areas to gain weight, but my tops don’t fit right as a result (I’m able to fit into my pre-COVID-weight pants though). I know you can’t spot-reduce fat and I know I need to keep dieting, but is there anything else I can do to fix this issue?
Countries should open borders to certain states in US that have coronavirus under control to help revitalize consumer travel and spending. Thoughts?
2 days ago, I came in contact with someone that tested covid positive and told me today. I don’t have symptoms as such, and know it typically takes 2-14 days to manifest. I am trying to schedule a covid test asap. Freaking out. If this situation sounds familiar can someone take me through their journey?
I graduated residency 4 years ago, but my becoming a doctor wasn't complete until today- I decided I'm joining a golf club (post-COVID lol)
My dad tested positive for covid. We have ICICI Lombard from india insurance for him. I need to take him to hospital for further test as his fever is going up. Anyone had experienced this. How the hospital treat uninsured or people who have foreign insurance.
I’ve been living in my parents basement during COVID and it has relapsed my anxiety/depression. I decided to go back to where I actually live (NYC) and my parents are helping me move. We have it planned to be as careful as possible with Covid. Tonight my brother sent a mean text to me saying I was being stupid and irresponsible. His concerns were valid but his text was extremely harsh and mean. Now it sent my anxiety off the charts 😩😩
I’m so sick of COVID and all the negativity and fighting around it. It’s making my head spin. Someone tell me some good news or something positive please I need brain bleach 🥲
Recently ended a 3+ yr relationship (were both mid 20s and living together for just under 2 years) bc of him buying an engagement ring yet not proposing and waffling about our future. After 2 weeks I brought up that there’s a lot of good in us that maybe worth trying to work on (counseling etc). He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
If only the world put in as much effort to help reduce obesity as they do for covid….. sigh
So what do we call the generation born in the next 8-18 months? Gen C(covid)? Gen Q(uarantine)?
If you could do it again, would you still become a teacher in today’s climate not just Covid but the whole attack economically and socially. If you yes , Would you choose teach the same thing that you teach now? If No what would you do for a living?
Anyone know when Google APMM apps come out? Or tips to prep for (hopefully) an interview?
Lateraling to a V100. Background check just completed and the vendor sent a copy of the report. Everything is clear except for the driving record which says “adverse” and shows 2 speeding tickets. Will this be an issue? I haven’t heard from the firm recruiter yet.

Does anyone still have their Aeroplan 75k or SE status gift (35k/50k)? Looking to do some travel next year and treat parents, would love to work something out!
Has anyone here (especially BCGers) taken a leave of absence in the past? Have you described it in the application as an employment break? If not, how’ve you explained your promotion isn’t on time?
Is it worth trying to get a referral to a company from someone completely unrelated to the function of the job you're applying to (e.g. a referral from someone in an R&D position for a job in BD)?
We always talk about students being bullies, but do you know of any teachers that act like bullies in their classroom?
I am married to this great guy for 8 years. For these years, from finance perspective, I don’t think we have set a clear boundary. Meaning whatever is my salary, i pay for groceries and whats left goes all into savings. From his salary, he pays all bills, mortgage etc. We are planning to buy a house next year, hence the idea is we use most savings from my Salary for down payment. So hitting reset button on savings next year. Curious how you all are managing your finances with ur SOs?
My LinkedIn "Jobs you may be interested in" ranges from CFO at a medical company to Breakfast Manager at a boutique inn. 😶 They need a better algorithm.
Husband and I are 8 months in to trying to conceive. After consulting with my doctors, based on my history w/ vaccines, we decided it is best to not get the vaccine while TTC. My obgyn also wants 18 months of consecutive trying before we start testing / looking at other options. My firm just changed policy to only allow vaccinated in the office and made hard deadline for everyone else to get vaccinated. Not sure what to do. Don’t want to tell employer I’m TTC but also don’t want to get fired.
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
I am 2 years into my time at deloitte consulting (commercial) - I am looking at new opportunities (usually associate strategy roles) and am hearing from recruiters to give me an expectation for compensation. I’m currently at 90k here, but know there’s a big boost potential from switching ship- what do you guys recommend/use as best practice to answer that question
Really struggling with what to do next in life. I feel like declaring search but have 0 idea what is the right job for me. Everything sounds sexy, I have serious FOMO about PM at FAANG...would love to hear from people who navigating this uncertainty and found something they're excited about
It’s kinda funny how the world of media/entertainment/content is all becoming more honest, transparent, and self-aware in an effort to satisfy a culture that’s becoming more narcissistic, insecure, and self-absorbed. *hits blunt*
I have no idea what “Clubhouse” is other than the fact that it’s an online platform of sorts… what’s it for? Who uses it? Why should I care? Thanks in advance for educating me haha
