Labor Day is coming up next week, and I'd love your thoughts on how we can recognize workers in this truly strange year. Maybe a mega thread in the Coronavirus Work-life bowl asking what it's been like to be a worker in the year 2020? Could be a cool time capsule to have people from different industries share their stories about what it's like to work through this. Any thoughts that come to mind?
Do people like those who auditioned in the attached video give others optimism for America's future? Do opportunities like this give optimism for America's future? Are the efforts of these individuals insignificant in today's society? For context, I believe this was filmed right before covid lockdowns. https://youtu.be/JYpJUhXGZq8
Getting covid antibody test. Free through insurance so why not? Knock on wood haven’t had symptoms but I’m curious
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

Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
Gained the COVID -19 (really only 10 pounds) but need to lose between 15-25. Been counting calories and mild exercise but we are interested in trying fasting but know nothing. How do you do IF right? When do you eat vs fast and what are the time frames? Do you eat only certain things on some fasts? Help appreciated
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.

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?

I’ve got a few interviews next week with PwC Strategy& but they are part of a larger hiring event that seem to all interview with the PwC new equation/professional framework. The recruiter gave me a prep guide but it just says situational interviews..I thought it was supposed to be more case focused? Anyone have any insight or is this how they are interviewing across the board now for consulting roles?

Hi I m looking for job. I have bpo experience telecommunications, health care, banking please refer me
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
