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.
Since we're bragging... I now work 100% remote, bill 20 hrs a week but actually work about 10 hrs and make $75k. I feel like I have unlocked all the cheat codes and beat the game. #blessed 🙏

Is it just me or have restaurants in the city really become insanely expensive? I feel like going out for a regular dinner (nothing special, no michelin star places or anything fancy) and a drink or two including tax, tip and potentially covid surcharges is now 100 bucks per person. Am I doing something wrong?
I created an comms consulting/marketing agency focused 100% on using advertising to combat COVID misinformation that is costing lives: we’re called The Auxiliary and you can check us out at resistcovid.com. I’m reaching out because we’re running (our second) hackathon against the infodemic- this time centered around finding creative ways to keep Georgians informed about COVID amidst misinformation and mistrust and an early relaxation of social distancing.

I have a family matter to attend to in Mexico. Do I have to clear that with KPMG leadership as far as working remote for a week in Mexico?
My brother in law’s parents just told us they’re not coming to Thanksgiving dinner – which we’re hosting this year – because we’re asking everyone to take a rapid test when they get to our place. We wanted to just make sure it was a little safer for everyone as well as safer for our 6 month old. Now everyone is a unhappy. Would you feel offended if you were asked to take a test?
Have an opportunity to move anywhere in the US as fully remote now. Have two young kids. What could be some good places to move within US?
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
For those that have been job searching prior to Covid how difficult is the current hiring climate vs. the one prior to Covid?
I’m really struggling with making new friends and would appreciate any advice! Mid 20s and moved to a new city city last year during covid. I started a new job as a well. I understood that it would be a tougher time but I didn’t expect it to be this rough. I’ve joined joined junior league, recreational outdoor activity and sports teams, Bumble BFF, and alumni groups. I’m outgoing, and will start conversations and try to engage with others. I’ll even try to exchange numbers/social media (cont)
For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)? I don’t know if it’s wfh or just the work now, but I’m finding myself getting amazingly frustrated at things that barely bothered me before. I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before
My SO is a contractor and takes multi-month breaks in between projects. I’ve noticed for years that their personality changes (for the worse) when working, but WFH has made life especially toxic. I’ve tried broaching the subject from multiple angles but always leads to what appears to be blinding anger where they say very harsh /hurtful things. Any advice on how to handle?
Stuck in an IT Audit rut. Can anyone provide guidance on how to get out and what are some potential exit options.
Interviewing for a big tech marketing position. Any recommendations on books to read/ resources to prepare?
Whoever decided they should be called "dreamers" deserves a nice bonus. Seriously, great branding.
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
Google recruiter’s make it a point to mention they are an asset to you and you can use them to prep for interviews. Does anyone know if actively using recruiters counts toward interview ratings?
Hello! Can anyone here please share the salary range for Director in Technology Consulting/ERP at PwC? Also, what is the typical career progression? How many years on an average folks spend as Director? Is the path Director > MD/ Principal or Director > MD > Principal? Thank you!!
Any recommendations for a hybrid robot vacuum in terms of price-performance Ratio or important buying criteria? WFH makes it necessary and I want to treat myself :). Key information: floor is parquet, so I guess it should have dry/wet/wiping functions, don’t have any pets, thought I want to spend 300€ max. but no clue if investing more is worth it. Highly appreciate any input :)!
EY partner worried about where I got my undergraduate degree. Basically overlooking my 10 year experience and achievements during interview. Good riddance

Will it be plus point for Hiring company, having the candidate of same industry experience, PM profile, consulting and customer engagement. Can you please tell any Product Manager, who is building roadmap without knowing Market, customers and their pain points. Please comment what this Hiring Manager has thought in his mind.
How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.
