I have been working at the same small firm for almost 9 years. If I were to interview elsewhere and reach the offer stage, I don't know what I can do about providing references. I wouldn't be able to share that I'm interviewing with my manager or even my peers. At my previous company, I was in a much more JR role - and I didn't have a tight relationship with my manager. Any suggestions - thoughts? Thank you so much!

Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to.

We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
