I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references
Just read the update on Massachusetts Early Retirement Bill. It had a favorable recommendation from the Joint Committee of Public Services. Now it goes to the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Fingers crossed
Hi! Please suggest good headsets that I can buy with hybrid productivity allowance. Thanks in advance

For the folks who are wondering i am from Pune office 2nd floor A zone
I am so anxious right now! Just got a job offer 2 weeks ago and still waiting on the written offer letter. I asked for an update and the recruiter reached out 2 days ago letting me know that they had some final requirements that should be approved that day so they can send the offer letter out. It’s been 2 days. My question is can I message the recruiter for an update? Will that be too annoying?
Would a ~20k bump actually be worth it if you enjoy everything else about your job, feel like you have a good work life balance, and are well respected within your practice? Lately I’ve been thinking it isn’t worth it... thoughts?
There was a discussion on pretty privilege recently. Here’s a random current story (not black) that illustrates the point. Being smart is great but being pretty, or in this case - cute, is the unspoken requirement.
Any recommendations for an auto body shop? Preferably around LP - got a few dents from parking garage and would like to fix. Looking for a few quotes first.

Cheers to whomever first talked up Ergatta in this bowl. It's awesome! So fun, but a great workout!
Help! Trying to decide on my home desk setup. Ultrawide or dual monitors (both will be + my work laptop). Outside of work, I’ll be using to game/stream/video edit. Anyone with experience multitasking with ultra wide? Feel like it wouldn’t be as natural/easy as dual.
Any footrest recommendations? I keep crossing my legs and twisting my feet and I know it can’t be good for my back!
How do you find the right therapist?
Better culture at BCG or McKinsey?
Someone just sent me a VOICE MESSAGE on Teams. Please, no. Seriously. This is crossing the line. Borderline harassment.
Any recommendations for work from home equipments (other than table, chair ,monitor and printer)? Or something that you found really helpful? Help appreciated. Budget around $200
Wth do men want. This guy tells me oh you wake up so late (at 11) on the weekends, that's so childish of you, idk if I can be with someone like that. We have hung out like 6 times LOL
Seems to be a lot of advertising folks on here. Are any layoffs happening there? Good friend in media planning. Is that safe right now?
I have a typical Spanish name with two surnames and a composed given name (e.g. JoseLuis PerezLopez) and for my entire career spanning multiple non-Spanish speaking countries, people have just been truncating it for my work emails, etc, with no input from me (think firstname.lastname@example.org).
Today the HR person at my next job actually bothered to ask me what names to use, which is a tiny thing but it honestly made my morning. Here’s to my non-anglo standard named homies ❤️
Has anyone considered or is doing 2 jobs during the covid work from home situation? I have a friend who is doing this and it seems very lucrative. Any legal considerations I need to know before jumping to do something like this?
A former colleague from some years ago told me my old team was hit by layoffs. Basically all the people I worked with there once upon a time, including a few lifers who were there through '08. Do I reach out and say anything or no?
I'm not in a position to give them any leads since I happen to be looking myself right now, but feels like I should at least offer an ear to listen
Seen a couple posts floating around pitting boomers against millennials. Eventually though aren’t many millennials going to receive this wealth as boomers age and pass away? I have several friends working low/middle income jobs who have parents who currently support them and will further when they pass via large nest eggs. I get not every millennial benefits from this but you’d be surprised how many do
Any ideas on how to make your WFH workspace more productive and enjoyable? For context, I’m a 28 year old male with no eye for interior design or functionality.
Does anyone else get covid guilt? I met friends for a vacation this past weekend. We are all vaccinated and wore masks in Ubers and until we were seated at restaurants and bars. I just can’t help but feel guilty and worried that we were irresponsible as the delta variant surges.
Mind if we talk iPhones for a sec? I just upgraded from an 8 to a 12 Mini and I’m having buyer’s remorse. I miss the home button and the upgrades don’t even feel that special, except the speed. Thinking of trading for the 2020 SE (last iPhone with a home button) or even a bigger 11 (more bang for your buck). Anyone else go through this? Also, do you miss the home button or just get used to it? Thanks.
I want to spend 100-120$ for a gift to myself. Ideally some electronic items apart from the usual speaker, google home, headphone, etc. I'm a 27 yr old male
Recommendation for weighted blanket? Keep having sleep issues since the whole WFH situation started. Heard weighted blanket could be a solution and looking for brand rec. TIA
Went through my first experience of booking a rental car. Showing up to said city and them not having any rental cars available.
I’m assuming it’s backlash from COVID when some rental car companies filed chapter 11 because they were leasing cars that no one was driving.
Anyways after 5 hours of searching for inventory throughout the entire city I finally found one.
