Calendly is my best friend. Anyone (friends, case interviews) except my case team gets a link and they can schedule. I link both personal and work calendars (personal is for my SO’s visibility), so no one ever schedules over my gym time or date night or CTM. It’s all in one place and after a full year, I’ve only had to reschedule calendly-set appointments twice.

I wish there was a simple answer to this. I have struggled to find a system that works for me. Currently, I am a fan of Microsoft To-Do. It works for me 90% of the time. The best feature for me is the “My Day” list. This really helps me focus on what I need to get done today vs get drowned by 100s of to-dos.

If i have something i need to do in life, i email my work address. I never miss a work email 🙃

I email myself and try to get to 0 bu the end of the day

Is it possible to switch jobs when H1B is in process?. I am in the final stages of interviewing for a FANG role. However, a bit anxious that I might not be able to join very soon. For context, my H1B was picked in the second lottery and was filed on 25th Sept. Are companies known to make adjustments to start dates?

Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”. This was really disingenuous because none of the other great grand kids except William’s (for good reason) have titles either, so why would Archie be given one? This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
