Do you believe our market or economy would be in a better or worse position if a Dem were president? Why?

Does it bother anyone that a rich, old, white, career politician was able to walk ass-backwards into the Democratic candidacy for the president of the United States? There were lots of better qualified people that didn't even have a practical path to the position. Similarly, does it bother anyone that a rich, old, white, unempathizing man wasn't even challenged practically for the Republican candidacy? What does this say about the two party system and society in its current state?

Time for an investigation into Billy Barr and his role protecting the President’s friends. Perhaps he should *also* be impeached... and, Trump is still rambling about the Mueller investigation..

President Trump, please step up and show leadership. If you can sign executive orders protecting statues commemorating child traffickers and rapists due to the role they played in this nation, I am sure you can open the door for more meaningful conversations with the country. For a start, you can sign an order to better hold police accountable by mandating a federal body cam law... start somewhere sir! Please.

Is it a bad idea to include a fraternity leadership position (president) on my MBA application? It seems like demonstrating leadership experience is good but potentially the stigma of Greek life could outweigh that.

GC at a mid sized private company. Legal department has been relatively small with only a few attorneys and legal assistants so bonuses have been discretionary and decided by the president without any real defined stucture. We are quickly expanding into a number of states as a result of a recent acquisition and will be hiring attorneys in each state. I am charged with developing a more formal bonus plan. Interested in examples of bonus structures. Vesting, tiers, percent of salary. Etc.

For the Yale SOM alumni referral program, I recently (in June) spoke to someone from the class of 2020. President of a club I was interested in, good chat, bonded over being in a niche industry. Would it be appropriate to reach out to him asking for a referral to admissions? Submitted r1 already

Had a conversation with the president at my small agency about transitioning from a full-time salary role to contractual work to pursue my long-term goals towards freelance illustration. They were hesitant and told me that I can do that my own work while working as a full-time employee. My hesitations are that clear boundaries would not be set if this is how I move forward in the company. Anyone have any advice at approaching this situation so that it feels win-win?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
