I have a feeling this is rare.

I hear ya. I think firms misrepresent that these opportunities are now readily available when, in reality, they are not.

Started two jobs at once. (Accepted both offers) one from public accounting and one from industry. My thoughts are to test both out and quit the one that i like the least. Both are mostly WFH. How would you quit lol? Is this a bad strategy lol?

Did any of you get a dog in your early 20s while living here? How hard was it? I currently live with my SO and have been wanting one for awhile but just nervous about if something were to change in my life. Right now it would be super easy as we’re both WFH. But obviously I’m young, things could change, and we’ll likely be going back to work at some point…i would think. Plus in a normal world we go out on weekends. We have plenty of ppl to care for the dog while we travel so that isn’t a concern

If you were still in undergrad would you prefer 1. Go back to campus and have an in person/hybrid learning experience with restrictions on social life 2. Have your school go fully remote for the entire fall semester 3. Defer for a year and resume your education fall 2021 when things will hopefully be “normal” I think I’d choose 3 but idk. Tough call, and I feel bad for current college students

Traveling with your boss After a week of work travel and sharing a house, I ended up having to share a hotel room with my boss our last night, only due to logistical curveballs. Nothing we planned.

No one is at their best when they’re sunburned, exhausted from multiple nights with 4 hours of sleep and knowing they’re gonna snore. Graceful recovery tips? -Mortified

I started with my bar prep company in March and have been working remotely since. I don’t feel like I was ever properly trained (can’t tell if that’s because of poor management or WFH or both) but I have a hard time with the contract management system and have made several mistakes. Of course, I wasn’t trained in the CMS and am only taught how to do something correctly after I’ve don’t it incorrectly. Any advice on keeping things in perspective? I feel like I’m underperforming but only with tech
