Have a friend in need of remote work (kid with bad lung disease at home, doesn’t want to risk bringing COVID home). He has a bachelors and masters degree in math but no formal business experience. What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?
Any talk of travel resuming at Accenture ? I am about to join as a Life Science Technology consultant and was hoping to get thoughts on if travel will be what it was pre-COVID (Mon-Thurs travel)? Thanks for your input!
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”)?
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
Hi all, I was a civil Engineer earlier and was laid off facing the Covid brunt and have upgraded to Data Science now, actively looking for a job to support my family. So if anyone can help or give leads it would be grateful to help support my family. Please please 🙏🏼

Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
What has COVID made you thankful for? I'm thankful for COVID because if I was traveling, the bees would have eaten through more wall in my office and I would not have known. Yes it's that kind of year. 😫😳.
Moving to nyc with my covid dog. Any advice? She’s only been in suburban areas growing up
Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
HELP! Roommate is being insistent on not allowing either of us to go out due to covid (except for groceries). We live in Chicago, and phase 4 is starting in a few wks meaning most places will re-open with limited capacity. I’m not trying to go crazy here and hit up every club/restaurant/public place. But I’d like to enjoy a meal out or a small gathering at a friend’s place, things like that (w/ all proper precautions in place) but roommate is not cool with it -how to approach?
Yay!!! No more masks for the vaccinated in most stores! Even more excited to go to Costco than usual 😇
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
Going to San Juan, PR next weekend from Jersey for 3 days, anyone know if I’ll need to take covid tests? Also staying at La Concha, any recs would be appreciated!
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?
Wrapped up an internship a few weeks ago and looking for a Jr AD position or another internship in NYC. Haven’t seen many positions posted and I’ve reached out to recruiters with no luck. Any advice?
Anyone else struggling with recruiters who do not understand the basics of their role? They keep sending me UX and Copy roles. My resume is Designer to AD to CD. I've told them these don't fit but keep getting them anyway.

I’m sooo sick of Marriott from the Bonvoy situation. Anybody have luck transferring to Hilton or Hyatt, getting status match?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
