My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
OMNICOM HASN’T ANNOUNCED WFH YET - WHAT ON EARTH ARE THEY WAITING FOR? WHY DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND THE URGENT NECESSITY TO BE PROACTIVE HERE??
Leave now or coast the off season and dip in Dec? Market seems hot but I don’t live in the state I work at since WFH.
Shameless plug to a LinkedIn post that I wrote yesterday. Lists upon lists of remote companies including EMEA/APAC roles. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chris-day-2021_opentowork-remotejobs-fishbowlapp-activity-6857385362189299712-Lboo
Have you worked more than one job while wfh? — If so, how is it going or how did it go? Same industry or different? How do you balance meetings? Transparency to companies? Tips? Recommendations?
I’ve been getting left out of or forgotten from a few meeting invites and links to imp. things such as remote shoot viewings. Today was the 5th time it happened this year. I know I shouldn’t think of it much, but it does bring me really down and makes me feel like I’m invisible + less capable than my partner. My white male creative partner has never been left out of one. It doesn’t help that I’m an introverted woman of color who is less vocal. Has this happened to you? How did you overcome it?
Before WFH was the norm we had a guy at our office setting up a auto reply email saying “Hi, I’m WTF today and might mot reply right away”
Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!
Planning a WFH trip to NYC in May for a week. Hotels seem expensive and Airbnb’s are better priced, but wanted to ask are there any other alternatives that I am missing that I should check for better deals?
Does anyone work primarily out of a coworking space like wework or regus? New job is 100% wfh when not traveling (which is about once a month) and wondering if this would be a good option, since I have a kid on the way and will be harder to WFH.
I may have the opportunity to buy land with a small house on it in an area I’ve always wanted to live (no neighbors). However that may mean WFH for my current company forever. How do I bring up that conversation, and who do I ask?
2 month entry level hire on the bench, is it too early to ask manager to work from home on Fridays? I have no real need to be in the office
Deal sleds. Since we’re not wearing suits again, should we be going casual? I’ve been thinking about my post-WFH attire.
Has anyone stayed in Federal consulting outside of the DC area? Fully remote? Just Curious if it is possible.
Anyone joining the Philly office this summer? Would love to meet some coworkers! Going a little crazy with WFH and not meeting any of my team in person
Which companies would work with someone that would have to work remote. Main reason for remote is there are no offices in my area. All would be 3 hours away.
Any good mock questions for the dev 1 cert?
Hello Fishes, I recently received offer from IBM for band 06B. Designation: Senior Technical services specialist. Can someone please help me understand the designation name? Also, will I get a project in the same technology for which I was interviewed?
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

Hello, I've been working as a Healthcare Consultant for over 4 years now & I am currently a Consulting Manager near the Philadelphia area seeking an opportunity in NYC. Anyone know anything avail?
How do billable requirements (or expectations in my firm’s case) and bonus eligibility actually apply to first-year associates who may have had a few slow months starting out? I’m finally in the 200 range the past few months but started out sub-120 for the first few.
Thoughts on Accenture? How do they compare to EY and Deloitte? Have offers from all 3 but not sure which one to choose. Would ideally like to get my MBA in a few years and get into MBB. Is there a better/more prestigious choice between the 3? TIA
If you have a few co-workers as friends on FB, and post your political preference for the election, can you get fired / let go? I didn't discuss with anyone, just posted a couple obvious links.
After all the things happening in US how are you folks on H1B looking at Canada Express Entry? Are most of you giving IELTS? And hows the score been overall ? I know the cutoff is over 440 as of now..
Need advice: I recently graduated from an MBA program and will start with EY Parthenon soon. I have 42 months left on my H1B and I’m nervous about EY starting my GC process since they have paused PERM (they said they will start GC after a year but if they miss this window, I’ll be screwed). Should I be looking to change jobs soon (within the next six months) or stick it out with EY? TIA!
Is there an ideal time of year to leave a job? I left my last job in May and it totally screwed up that summer because I couldn’t really take a whole bunch of PTO. Now I know I’m going to leave sometime this year and don’t want a repeat of last time, but not sure I can make it another 6 months.
Created a design app prototype that’s meant to be a holiday virtual card for my girlfriend who I haven’t seen in a couple weeks since the recent covid spike. Anyone care to user test it before I send the link to her?
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
How are consulting companies creating the space and vocabulary to talk about mental health and wellbeing in this industry? How do we remove the stigma? How do we reduce suffering and eliminate shame.
