Setup a free version of SQL like Sqlite3. And practice using free you tube videos. Unless you plan to become an SQL developer, that might be enough.

Also I will assume you are talking modern BI (qlik/tableau/power bi/zoomdata etc). Most of those tools have a free version. Download that and start trying to teach yourself. YouTube, forums, and the websites for those tools can teach you a lot.

I bought a laptop from a seller who is a friend of a good friend and my bf refused to accompany me. He came with me the night before to the ATM to get cash, but even that I felt like I had to convince him to come. I felt safe meeting with the seller because it was my good friend’s good friend. But I would have liked my bf to come in case someone tried to rob me as I walked back to my car. He refused because he was sure I’d be safe meeting with a friend of a friend. Am I wrong for being so upset?

Was given an offer and I confirmed it a week ago. recruiter said I’d be getting the paperwork packet on Thursday, haven’t received it yet. Expected start date is at the end of the month and I’m getting anxious because I don’t want to resign until all the paperwork and HR stuff is done. Offer is from a stable F100 and I really liked the team, there’s no reason the offer would be pulled at this stage is there?
