Which city? Anything specific? How long have you been there and at your current job?

A city in Texas (prefer not to say), 5 years, 2 years

I’m in Texas too and feel the same. I’m planning on making a move in January. I haven’t decided where but I’m just ready for a fresh start and for something new. Mine is a combo I’m sure of running away from a few things but more so just wanting to explore something nww

Hi, Cognizant said after the HR Round I'll receive a mail that will have 'Click here' url to fill Online Candidate Information Sheet. I received that email but that mail doesn't have any link to submit online CIS.
I tried calling both HR and Recruiter, they're neither picking up my calls nor answering my emails. As far as I know they won't release my offer letter without that Online CIS form.
What should I do now?

I had an initial interview on Wednesday. About an hour later, I got a call from an internal recruiter from the same company wanting to follow up and see how the interview went. I didn’t see the voicemail until the following morning when I was at work and called her back that afternoon when I was out of work. I still haven’t heard from her. Is this normal? Should I not try calling back again? I’ve been at my job for several years, so I am unfamiliar with how I should handle a situation like this.

Girlfriend has very obvious high functioning anxiety and body image issues that she admits but thinks she doesn’t need therapy or medication and that reading self-help books will help her.

I don’t really know what to do. I somewhat enjoy doing commissions online, but i eventually want to move away from it to work on bigger projects. I don’t have the skills yet, so I have to be patient. However commissions alone aren’t enough for me to live on, and I just want a temp or part time job to help with the extra income. I have been having a hard time finding work, and I honestly feel like I have 0 skills. Portfolio wise, nothing I have is acceptable for looking for work.
