Hello Everyone. Hope all is well! I have been applying to jobs, with referrals and seem to get nowhere. Is there anyone who can help me? Someone who wants to take a look at my resume and recommend me a position that fits my skills and job experience. I have been in the IT field for several years. I am looking within the Charlotte, NC area or remote. Thanks!

FTM here and I need to get opinions. I’m back at work remote but in desperate need of childcare. With my husband and I working from home…it’s so crazy trying to manage a 6 month old. So the question is…do you think it’s better to have a nanny or daycare. I want my son to be socialized as much as possible…but then COVID. I am also seeing that nannies are umm kinda pricey too for a long term bid. So just trying to see the general consensus

My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice. It’s harder to have a hostile work environment when you don’t have to be in a work environment 5 days a week (sometimes 6). For context, I’m a POC.

It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.

YOE: 2.5 Selenium QA Automation Company: Infosys Base Location: Chennai Mcity Our native place is Coimbatore. My Husband is working in Cognizant Coimbatore and he will moving to one of the product based company in Coimbatore next month. I have got joining bonus and if I resigned before April 2022. I have to pay the entire bonus and within one year I am not willing to switch also. Is there any possibility to get transfer to Coimbatore location ( Infosys owns Skava)? Or can we extend the WFH?

So I’ve got a situation: I’m a first year in transactions. Office is located in a different city than where I live. When I went to the office and didn’t work remote, I stayed at my girlfriends. Well… she broke up a week ago. I don’t have a place in the city where the office is located and I’m currently working remote. I don’t feel like moving, actually. I never did in the first place. Only reason was for my relationship (yeah it was a bad idea I guess) (1/2)

All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do?
