What does everyone think about what sales /pursuits will be like in the Covid and post-Covid world? Key changes you’re already noting (ex. not on site to meet f2f or “walk the halls”)?
This article is a good read in terms of how to handle the COVID-19 crisis: https://blog.shrm.org/blog/promoting-workplace-mental-health-in-the-age-of-covid-19
My anxiety/depression/imposter syndrome has relapsed throughout covid. Last year I had just started with therapy when covid hit and I slowly stopped because I don’t feel comfortable doing it virtually with roommates around. I feel like I had made all this progress and it’s just slowly fading away. I spend my weekends alone with my thoughts for so long that I feel lonely and cry. How are you all able to cope with this feeling that this is forever
Has anyone negotiated temporary lower rent with your land lord during covid? (my bf lost his job and I'm the only one making money).
Waiting on that retraction, Dems. Front page of the WSJ + Guardian today: "An Update on the Coronavirus Treatment - Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin continue to show results for patients"
I’m back to having no billable work again. My department almost completely dried up when covid started, so I’ve been relying on work from other busy departments at my firm to keep me busy since March. I feel like I start a new job every couple of weeks and am constantly begging for work. I’m just exhausted. Can anyone else relate?
I am a customer consultant and I am now really stressed out due to covid, I want a change in my life trying to learn aws. Preparing for SAA-C02 i need some help with practice exam and also on a decision of which stream to proceed with now Devops or sysops. Any leads much appreciated.

In case this helps anyone in here who doesn’t already know. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. https://nypost.com/2020/04/03/how-hungry-nyc-residents-can-get-free-meals-amid-coronavirus/
2 things I don’t understand: -if vaccinated people can still catch and transmit Covid why don’t employers have to make them test weekly? -why is there no recognition or option to provide antibody status for people who were sick and recovered from Covid?
Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor. What a MESS https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2021/09/13/alabama-man-dies-after-being-rejected-by-43-hospitals-in-3-states-family-says-as-covid-packs-icus/ https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/alaska-joins-idaho-in-rationing-health-care-as-hospitals-are-packed-with-covid-patients-and-who-says-africa-is-being-left-behind-in-vaccine-push-11631717516 https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2021/09/14/amid-covid-19-overload-providence-alaska-medical-center-now-prioritizing-care-under-crisis-standards/
Just learnt FIL is in ICU under observation after contracting Covid. He has other pre existing conditions. Just became citizens this year and haven’t gotten around to doing the OCI card yet. Any guidance in how to get emergency visa or travel to Hyderabad would be greatly appreciated! Are there special flights & quarantine rules?
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html
Why don’t they care about natural immunity from previous infection? Several studies and doctors agree that natural immunity is just as good if not better than vaccines.
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Has anyone else made the switch from Audit to AAS during COVID? How has it been so far in terms of hours compared to audit and do you enjoy it more than audit?
What a SPEECH!! So excited for the Biden Administration! And they’re hitting the ground running! Biden Coronavirus task force incoming on Monday! Let’s get this virus under control so that we can safely open up our economy!
So with further vaccine rollouts on the horizon, it will still be several months before COVID is "over." Whenever that happens, do you think this bowl will die or be renamed/repurposed to something else?
Saw the job posting for EY FDD associate role. The post requires 1+ YOE in FDD. Would they consider hiring auditors as well?

What’s the culture in Mckinsey Implementation like? Just got an experienced hire offer and wanna know what I’m getting myself into given it’s a newer practice.
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Just got a rejection after final round of interviews with a tech company. The recruiter called and gave positive feedback but indicated that no one was ultimately hired. He did not believe it was anything to do with me but rather, “issues on [Company A’s] side.” Does anyone know what that means? Should I even hold out hope that they’ll reconsider? The process was very intensive with about 6+ interviews with several written/verbal assessments. Not sure I want to start the process over
I used to think “Go back to your home country” was an insult. Now I actually think it’s good advice. I don’t fit into the bro culture here.

Would love tips on successful breast feeding! I'm pregnant with #2 and want to try again. With my first I had issues with latching, clogged ducts and supply. We switched exclusively to formula at 2mo.
How do you approach a firm recruiting you when you weren't looking to move? It would be similar work, but I could negotiate a significant salary boost which would help my family reach financial goals faster. I like everything about my firm, but the pay is on the low side. I've never interviewed when I wasn't eager to leave my current job, and I'm uncertain how to discuss that with the recruiter & interviewer. I want to leverage it, but don't want to sound greedy.

ZS fish - when applying, do you actually provide your salary history from the past 5 years? The application says proof of income will be requested during the interview process. This seems very odd so looking for guidance. Thanks!

Deloitte Moms, I remember seeing in some other bowl that Deloitte gives 200 dollars gift card or vantage points for new moms. I am having trouble finding the information in DeloitteNet or TOD. Are we still getting it or was it a past promotion kind of thing? Appreciate any guidance on this.
