Hi, I’m a recent Economics graduate of UCLA and currently work at PwC as a risk consultant (~6 months). I’m being asked to relocate to the east coast from SF but I don’t have the means to due to health concerns in the family (covid). I would love to connect with any sourcing/recruiting professionals at Google that might have any entry level non-technical roles come across their desk. I excel in project management, data visualization, risk management, marketing, and communications. Thank you!

My Senior Manager & Partner are basically “forcing” us to take vacation during the week of 20th Dec and 3rd Jan. They’re saying if we don’t have billable work (even though we’re available to work), we should use vacation days instead of charging time to a GA or PRD code. Is this even legal? I was supposed to go home but can’t because of travel bans. I want to save my vacation days so I can go home in April, not take vacation to sit at home. How do I navigate this?
