https://diasporamessenger.com/2020/05/swahili-village-it-took-a-village-to-open-and-a-deadly-virus-to-close-in-days/amp/ I just went to Swahili Village, East African food. It opened during Covid and they seem to be struggling. The food was really good. If you are in the Northwest DC area you should check them out and support.
US people, what are your thoughts on flying with the whole corona virus scare? Would you wear goggles and mask as advised while flying?
Dr Trump says vaccine will be available soon. However, it prevents a different disease. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/25/white-house-says-trumps-vaccine-claims-about-ebola-not-coronavirus.html
What empty gesture did your employer give you for your work during Covid? For us, it was chocolate chip cookies in the cafeteria lol.
Coronavirus - are we worried?
🐠 who fly Delta- my friend loves to run got the lottery for the Tokyo Marathon in March. She saved and trained for months to be able to make it. It just got cancelled bc of the coronavirus and (Ctd..)
Guys in Italy we are conducting this social experiment called “how many meetings can we save due to coronavirus quarantine” It’s going great!
If you joined consulting out of undergrad prior to 2020, do you still like your job now that it’s fully remote? I started in summer 2018 and loved the travel, hanging out with team, happy hours and cool events to balance out the demanding work environment. Now I feel like this job is lame and I dont even know what my clients look like and just talk to a screen all day. Being “young”, I feel I should be doing something more exciting even in the Covid world.... anyone else?
My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Roommates and I have all moved back with parents amid Covid. Our NY lease ends in July w option to renew but building mgmt isn’t willing to negotiate lease and we are open to moving...cont.
Out of curiosity, anyone else get covid and end up being the ONLY person in your circle to catch it? Like zero friends, zero family, even the guy I’m seeing didn’t catch it and we were together the day before I got symptoms. No idea where I got it. Viruses are weird 🧐
I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.
I just wanted to say for everyone that's having trouble right now I was laid off at the beginning of Covid only a few weeks later I got a job offer at an investment bank. Some doors close others open.
A COVID biography. Chapter 1.
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Is this the real shift in firm culture post Covid?? Look around your firm. On my floor, 50% of the employees are in transition or unsatisfied and looking for a change (staff and lawyers). Are other people/firms experiencing this? Is this the real root of the great resignation?
This might not be popular here but does anyone else dislike Elon Musk? All the fact free covid tantrums, idiotic humor, treatment of his workers, reports by ex wives, and seriously its enough with doge coin already. Why is it so fun for him to whip up a frenzy and get so many poor and working class folks to buy it? He’s digging himself and his companies into a bigger and bigger hole the more solely responsible for this mania he becomes, and it seems publicly like all he cares about.
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
But once again not posting
Nice! The post animation looks good!
How great would office emojis be in this app?

How great is it to go back to college campus for the start of Fall interviews... this time as an interviewer! 😀 This is going to be fun.
I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early
Anyone else nervous about the Fed raising interest rates 💸? http://www.wsj.com/articles/global-stocks-climb-ahead-of-fed-rate-decision-1442390376
When you have interviews and ask one question and get a 15 minute response out of a 30 minutes time... 😓
It took a semester in college to become a domain expert on a topic. It takes 4 weeks here.
What's the typical salary analysts who get promoted to consultant? I've heard a few figures and beginning to think they low balled me as a direct hire consultant
