Would you travel with your 7 month old from NYC in flight right now given coronavirus situation?
I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
Signed up for a job that’s 80% travel. Realistically- how much is it now? (Covid- post covid)
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Are there any covid tests in your area that provide same day results? If so, what area and how much?
to 🐠 with severe anxiety/prone to panic attacks: i need guidance on how to help my loved ones manage through their anxiety. their anxiety is usually triggered by health related situations so COVID-19 has been especially difficult for them. scenarios of them getting triggered include when they’re running, they sometimes get bouts of coughs so then they panic, thinking they can’t breathe. or they accidentally touch harsh chemicals and think they injected toxins. how can i help and be supportive?
It's been around 14 weeks since I filed my tax returns along with a new ITIN application for my wife through an in person appointment at the local Chicago office. My profile is still not available on the "Where's my refund" page. Called the ITIN helpline couple weeks back and they said neither application was in the system yet and this could be due to covid processing delays. Anyone else facing lengthy delays for ITIN / tax refunds. Thanks!
Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home? I used to go to the gym 6am pre-covid before work, but since quarantine started, I’ve been waking up like 30 mins before I need to start working/my earliest meeting 😅. It’s so hard to get out of bed when my new “gym” is right next to my bed.
Has anyone made a move on a friend they’ve known for years and how did that work out? I’ve been hanging out a lot more with one of my friends during covid and we casually flirt every now and then, but I haven’t made a move yet because I’m just not sure how to do that with a friend without risking the friendship

How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...
What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?

Latest word on the street for any provider systems hiring? Seems most are still on a freeze for non-clinical roles. I was laid off during Covid a few months ago and honestly don’t want to go back to consulting. Most of my experience is in provider work (rev cycle, operations) and have reached out to my network but looks like I’ll have to wait it out much longer, or try a new industry.
I don’t have a tribe, but I’d like to have one. This lifestyle, pre-Covid anyway did a number on my social life. Maybe I watch too much tv but how are people finding their girlfriends? 😭 for reference I’m 26!
Worked really hard on some work only for it to be discarded/not get utilized. Super demotivated right now...how can I change my mindset to feel better?

I interned and started my career all within the confines of quarantine. Any tips for standing out when all you’ve known is remote work?
I think I asked for too low of a salary during initial interviews elsewhere. The recruiter never told me the band either. About to go into second round. Is there still a chance to ask for more?
With hotels and airlines struggling, do people think credit card travel perks/bonus points/reward systems will change post pandemic? Additionally, does anyone have and is satisfied with the amex hilton aspire card? Thinking of adding this to the wallet once travel opens up.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Asking for a friend - are any firms open to sponsoring H1B for foreign lawyers looking to move into legal services/management consulting on the state-side?
Where can I find a description of the benefits offered by the legal plan? Do we have to use their attorneys? How much of the cost of a will do they cover?
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
