If I’m making a move to a new company and they mandate the vaccine, how do they validate that? Are companies asking for literal proof?
Need advice on side hustles and PT gigs. I work FT, my wife runs her own business PT while caring for our kids, and we are STILL living paycheck to paycheck. Combined we make over $80k/yr, but it's still tight. My wife is saying she can go back to work FT and shut down her biz, but a) I know this would make her unhappy, b) we want to prioritize our time with our kids before they start going to school, and c) we already pay for PT daycare and it's EXPENSIVE. FT is outrageous. Thoughts?
Happy Tuesday! I’m looking to make more connections in HR and was wondering if anyone would like to connect on LinkedIn?

Every company wants good employees until the employees challenge you to become better management!
Currently an HRBP who got back from Mat leave April 2022. Came back to a new manager who I know from before Mat leave. While I was away, another hrbp was hired so now theres three hrbps in the business group I support. My manager is having a hard time developing me and her focus is on the new hrbp and doesn’t always involve me in things. Sends me things here and there if she doesn’t want to bug the other hrbp with easier things so I’m feeling left out. If i rely on her for my development…
HELP! I work at a remote company and we are hiring folks across the mainland. I need to find an online notary who can verify IDs for Form I-9. In the past, I had new hires find a local notary but we want to centralize this as there has been a lot of back and forth, confusion, etc. Do you have any suggestions for a company I can go with? Suggestions including links are greatly appreciated!
How do other women in sales deal with leaving their family for work trips? I've been in sales a long time but now I have a partner and an infant. My partner gets frustrated when I have to leave because we share all of the parental duties equally when I'm home and me leaving is very distruptive. How do others deal with this?
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months. Certainly expecting to sacrifice financial upside but growing tired of the grind.
I’m in my 3rd Quarter as an SDR and we’re paid on meetings booked. All Qs in 2021 and Q1 ‘22 goal were 21/Q… Q2 increased to 35 (with 0 evidence that we could hit this number)… no one hit it but we still did our best Q yet.
We’re < 1 week from the end of Q3. Our goal was 35, but as of 2 weeks ago they told us it has changed. They did not tell us how it changed, just that it had. They still have not given us our commission structure. We don’t know how we’re being paid this quarter.
What are sales teams/the sales environment like at your company? Is it cut throat or collaborative/laid back?
I’ve been in TA for 10 years and have been wanting to be an HRBP for 2 years now. My prior company had no interest in helping me develop and started with a new company 4 months ago. I was transparent from the start that I wanted to leave TA and was told I could do that within my first year. I’m receiving signs that I’ll, once again, be pigeonholed in TA. I’ve done talent management, DEI, engagement, but my lack of direct BP experience and TA titles keep me pigeonholed. What can I do?

What platform or consulting firm would you recommend to help a company build out a new and improved onboarding process that emphasizes on training in the IT space (Manage Service Provider)? Once the orientation with HR is completed and the hand off of the new hire to the manger takes place is gap in proper training on the role ans technology's (sales and IT dept). The new management team has been in place for for over a year. Nothing has ever been in place prior for them to work off of

This is ridiculous... “loaded guns”!
AITA? I’m a 8th year attorney working at a boutique PI firm, resolving around $30m-$40 million a year. Average case value is above $1m. But I’m also being assigned lower value cases in the low six figures. From my perspective, these eat up my time and leave me with less time to focus on the high value cases I manage. AITA to ask the partner for some kind of value threshold to let me focus on those larger cases? There are younger associates at the firm who would love the work.
