I am overwhelmed with the current state of affairs over the last six mos and six weeks. From COVID and making sure my team feels ‘ok’, to the elevation of BLM due to the long overlooked atrocities, my building my destroyed by riots and looters and then boarded up, LGBTQ focusing on the negative history instead of the pride that I so dearly love, Brands pulling out of FB (when hate is so clearly more pervasive than just on FB)...I don’t want anything swept under the rug - I am craving happiness
A year into a promotion without a raise to match. I've tried everything short of going full-Karen on HR. Other than the principle of the matter, I don't want to leave. Has anyone else has success navigating this BS? Is anyone else still hearing Covid as an excuse to raise freezes?
Argued with my colleagues if we need to wear masks. I am an Asian and I heard lots of terrible Coronavirus from my family members and friends who live in those highly exposed areas..maybe I overacted?
If you tested positive for covid 3 weeks ago and feeling better and no more symptoms would you go to the store (masked of course) if you didnt have a test done yet to confirm you're negative?
I find that single male friends of friends are generally very eager when we first met or were introduced (through events, common friends’ parties). I got invited to their hangout bunch / house parties (pre-covid), but the moment we established i have no romantic interest and only friendships, they disappeared and we become barely acquaintance. I genuinely want to keep them in my life as friends. Why is this the case?
INSEAD candidate here, thinking about the exchange program with Wharton. Anyone here currently on campus? I'd love to know how much classes and activities are still being impacted by Covid.
First time home buyer question! I am actively looking but there’s not a ton on the market in Chicago due to COVID. Was planning to apply for mortgage pre-approval next week so I can act quickly when something does. Any issues I should think about if I apply but don’t end up buying?
What "hard truths" or insights has the coronavirus crisis revealed about your own firm and our larger industry? Let's be pretty open and honest here.
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
I am currently situated in the US and plan to do a landing in Canada for PR stamping. Any recent experiences going through this? Can I just land, get the stamping and fly back? Or do I need to wait back for negative covid test?
After a year of chaos from Covid and furlough I don’t know what the hell I’m doing with my career anymore
I had to reject an offer from a company last year due to COVID concerns and not being able to relocate. Would it be a bad idea to reach out and inquire about it again?
Does anyone have any leads on potential jobs in IT, like IT Support or Help Desk in DC? My SO was laid off today due to COVID.
Had covid, got J&J, just tested positive for Covid again. Same symptoms, did anyone experience a shorter turn around time
Hi ladies! Advice on moving home for the fall/save some $$ vs. staying in the city (Boston)? I have a healthy-ish relationship with my family, turning 24 and recently single - not sure if now is a great time to date but am I wasting time by not? My logic says I should rent out my apt (homeowner), but part of me wants to stay in the city. Originally, I was moving to London this summer w/work (postponed due to COVID) but I’m still trying to move in Jan if I can find the l right opp this fall. Ty!
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Anyone flown recently and needed to show proof of a covid test? Flying American to California for the week and need to know if this Chicago order is being enforced
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! 🙂
If someone in your family passes away and you need to take the day off to travel to the funeral, do you just take a PTO day or is there a specific WBS?

Do you have to have a masters/MBA/certification in order to be a CFO of a small/mid size company?
HR professionals- are you requiring a negative test before any employees return to work after COVID? Some had very mild symptoms and one was asymptomatic. I’ve read not to push for a Dr.’s note and some people can still be positive yet not contagious. Right now I’m following the cdc guidelines of 10 days from first symptom, fever free for 24 hrs and improvement of symptoms.
I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake
I have the Chase Preferred card. Is it worth getting the Chase Reserve? If yes, what makes the $550 annual membership worth it for you?
Husband and I are moving to Seattle in a couple of months. His office is in downtown Seattle and mine is in Sodo. He wants to be able to walk or bike to work. I will be mostly WFH but want to be relatively close to office. We also have a pup. Any recommendations for neighborhoods or apartment buildings much appreciated! We would prefer to be close to parks and grocery stores vs. bars.

Question mainly for those who made the move from Agency to Client roles. How did you initially make the switch: - recruiter/headhunter - job aggregator site such as LinkedIn or Indeed - specific specialist site (would love to know details) - found and applied for role directly on company site - through personal/professional connection - other (details, if you'd be so kind)
