Salam everyone, wanted to ask if anyone here is in a relationship with someone close to their age and how they’re navigating it for ex a guy being 22 and the girl being 24. I’ve been advised to find someone 3-4 yrs younger than me because that would make things smoother and there would be less fighting. What are your thoughts? Also I’m Arab and will most likely be marrying an Arab girl if that changes anything.
Any suggestions on how to get around the “gatekeeper?” My job relies on calling and visiting cold leads and getting past the gatekeeper and speaking to someone who can make a decision is becoming nearly impossible.

Hello my sharks 🦈 from IBM 😇
I have a query with regards to HRA deduction that we can claim as non taxable.
So in my offer letter, it is written that max 50% of basic salary can be used for house rent.
My basic salary is 7,00,000. So how much deduction can I show for HRA, considering the The Income Tax Act Section 10-13A?
I want to reduce the tax as much as possible through HRA, but I believe there is a limit upto which deductions will be considered.
Thanks in advance guys🙂

I have been reading posts from newer associates about bad things partners have done or said to them and I think it could be fun for some of us more senior lawyers in the bowl to tell stories of mean things partners did or said to us when we were new associates. Hopefully it stays mostly light and not horrible things.
For those that have left the firm, did you tell your coach and HR you were leaving? What’s the protocol?
In hr round they asked me,, how can I trust that you will join us as you already have an offer?
I told them,, anyway I am switching so I am trying to get as high package as possible.
After a week the hr called offering me 30% more than what I asked but the he said he will only send the offer letter one day before joining.
The offer is amazing but can I trust him or should I try for different company?

How is working at Gut? How was it at David and Ogilvy when Anselmo Ramos was running the shops? As great as I would suspect?
I’ve applied for several jobs at SF and I really want to work for them. Is it appropriate to proactively reach out to a recruiter in LinkedIn for assistance? I was recently promoted to Director to create and head our new Salesforce Marketing Cloud CoE. I have 25+ years experience in Telco managing IT Implementations/Software Dev/Business Solutions working with developers, architects. Mostly serving as TPM and Business architect. How’s the best way to get my foot in the door?

Philly what’s good? 34 M
30 m ny/nj. US citizen. Moved as a teenager. INTJ. Single since I figured I’m not fighting the biological clock and have all the time in the world to meet someone and get settled. Things changed after I watched Akshay’s mom (Indian Matchmaking) tell him even 25 is too late and not marrying somehow messes up lives of people around him. While the show was staged, there might be truth to the latter part.
Looking for F in ny/nj. Personality: NOT Aparna. NOT Nadia but def more Nadia than Aparna.🙏
Was this only meant for single desi consultants?
Would you pursue someone who, from time to time will say they “don’t feel like it” and then completely shuts you down? Quick run down- I’m talking to this guy (desi) and we hit it off. He blames his attitude on the past and mental issues. I think I need to dodge this bullet but another part of me really likes the “nice side”. Tried to have a convo to set expectations but he turns the table and accuses me of bringing baggage/drama. I know guys play this game but can’t we be adults here?!?
