Anyone hear any guidance on Federal client work yet? I don’t know who the “partial” govt shutdown applies to.... non-essential govt staff and contractors? Thanks. Sorry for the holiday question .

What is the difference between working in consulting in SF vs. NYC? Looking to relocate after UG, but want to make sure I'm making the right decision. I'm thinking about WLB, network, exit opp, culture, price, quality of life, etc.
Hey! Can anyone assist with what can be claimed as workers comp? I was at work when I had my first episode of vertigo. Everything was spinning, wouldn't stop, and I couldn't stand or sit. I was freaking out and asked to be rushed to ER. Work paid for the ambulance. No physical injury. Insurance apparently didn't cover emergency charges. The out of pocket expense is about $2.5k and was wondering if I can claim this as workers comp. Again, no physical injury though.
First time interviewing as an experienced hire. When a recruiter asks salary expectations, do I counter and ask for a range? I don’t want to go high & get dinged but also don’t want to get shorted.

Help! Last minute trip to Hawaii, want to use points. Have about 250k points thru both Chase and Amex (each). Also have Amex Plat. - Chase is running 1.5x points to transfer to Bonvoy right now. - Amex has basically the same deal as Chase - every 2 pts transfer to Bonvoy for 3 pts (am I doing the math right?) - Amex also has $200 FHR/Hotel Collection annual credit for one of the hotels I'm considering - Could also transfer points to Hyatt, but not as good hotel options where I'm headed CONT...

Working on an app and I need to raise funding. I want to start with grants before giving away equity. Where is a good place to start looking and applying for startup grants?
Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
Does anyone have tips for identifying/connecting with recruiters who focus on hiring independent/contract consultants?
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”..........
Hey folks! Hope everyone is safe and sound. Who is working on billable work and who is on the bench ?

Hey Bdo, does your current annual salary that shows up on myBdo also shows your bonus amount? Or just the salary increase?
Possibly a dumb question from an intern but why do people go into specific software jobs? For example kpmg has oracle, workday, Salesforce, etc. I see this being super dead end unless you plan to work in that software forever and move up that way. I don’t see many exit opps and personally doesn’t seem fun to work on one software everyday. Please let me know if missing something
