Just sharing a story. Thanks to months of therapy I have finally become brave enough to quit in May, when my current project is over.

Anyone have menstrual complications after their covid vaccine so bad they ended up calling their doctors? What did they do for you? I have had my period for 6 weeks straight after the covid vaccine. I worked with my doctor for YEARS to get my cycle and body where it needed to be (endometriosis) and have been on a pill so things were finally consistent and going great until the shot. I am miserable, scared and in pain. Just need to know I’m not the only one and things will get better.

Been an Acquisition Analyst Contractor Support in Huntsville for the past 3 years but moved to Fort Walton area during Covid. I have no contacts here and am struggling to find a position that fits my skill set/experience. Open to full remote or onsite support. Any contacts or advice?
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
Interviewing with some companies - despite great feedback at interviews, they are all trying to slot me in at an independent contributor level or an level lower than my current. Feeling frustrated - male colleagues are getting lateral positions or a level above current. Need I mention I am also up for promotion at current firm. Has anyone experienced this? Is this bias or just a symptom of the Covid economy?
Has anyone travelled to the US recently? If so- were you able to use the $40 COVID test at Shoppers as a negative test to cross the border? I’m considering going for a long weekend at the end of the month but trying to sort out the covid-related logistics.

Just received an offer from EY. The offer came in a bit lower than I had hoped, any tips to negotiate salary or sign on bonus? (currently an S1 at KPMG)
Applying for jobs and seeing that depression and anxiety is listed as a disability. I’ve been diagnosed for depression/anxiety for 5 years, I take pills and it is not a significant stopper in my life. Should I be marking that I do have a disability? What are the pros/cons from a hiring perspective (I know they say it doesn’t matter but I don’t trust people)
Zoom interview for a job I don’t have any real experience for. They have my resume. Do I cut right to it that I’m not specifically qualified but eager and able to learn? Or skip over it assuming they’ve seen my background and are still interested enough to interview, fake it til you make it style?
Final interview coming up for EY SC position. I’m absolutely freaking out about the case and technical interview. I’ve never been good with case interviews and they stress me out. Any tips, suggestions, or pointers?
Did I screw myself by being the first person to bring up salary figures with a startup? I tried to hold firm and make sure they said ballpark range first before I said if those align with my expectations, but she gave a vague “it depends on market, but I can give you a broad range from $45k-$90k for the role.” So I responded with $70k-$80k. Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.

How bad are D layoffs in Canada? US firm seems nuts but not so much here from where I'm standing..
Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?
I accepted an offer at Deloitte and start in three weeks. I am also in processes at another Big 4 and MBB. If I get substantial better offers from them, would it be crazy to leave D after a couple months? Start dates for other potential offers are Jan 3.

Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
