LinkedIn is like IG, but about jobs. 🫠
Try to stop comparing yourself to others. Maybe see what growth is possible by looking at career paths, but negative comparison is just not worth it. Hella demotivating!

LinkedIn is for bragging. It’s hardly a reflection of truth.

Why get depressed over this? Most people hate working at all, including seniors with fancy titles. Plenty of C-Suite people are depressed, miserable personal relationships…what exactly do you believe is the experience of your peers? That their title means they feel happy and successful all the time? Nope. That if you had that you’d feel happy and successful? Maybe for a month then hedonic treadmill would kick back in.

It’s called a rat race for a reason. Re-evaluate why you give a F.

Comparison will only crush your soul. I guarantee they are not concerned with what you are doing.

I feel the same way sometimes too. It’s normal

Hi posting for a friend… was invited to final round interview two weeks ago, and recruiter never responded to email providing interview availability.

I joined @mindtree in Jan 2022. Suddenly there is a 10k deduction in salary in the month of April. The salary slip say 10k deduction as INCOME TAX. Mindtree says "You come under 20% slab according to the income tax calculations. When all the tax slabs are applied you will have to pay yearly tax around Rs. X amount. So that amount will be deducted in monthly basis." Why sudden income tax deduction? Why was that not deducted in the month of Jan Feb March ? How can i recover that 10k every month?

A year ago I was in South Africa on a hunting safari. If it wasn’t for government corruption and crime and I didn’t have to worry about money I would live there and learn to be a professional hunter and work on a game farm.

I've refused to believe this reality, but that Comp Sci degree does matter even if you use only 20% of it at most. I changed career from another tech space into software via coding bootcamp. Every comp sci skill I've learned on my own. It doesn't matter that I demonstrate the knowledge, I need that degree to have legitimacy in this field.

I had a discussion with a friend a week ago and it’s been bugging me for a bit. We’re both 29M. We were talking about dating and marriage and I told him I wasn’t really focused on that and instead just living life and focusing on work and friends. If a girl comes along that I click with then I’ll know but I’m not worried. He basically made fun of me and said as a male we need to put in the work of finding someone. My passive approach is something only women can do. Thoughts? Is he right?

I moved from India to Canada 2yrs back. I am happy here, enjoying work, new place and new lifestyle. But, even after 2yrs of being in a new country I have no social life. Couldn't meet anyone new as it's a work from home situation. There are a few meetup groups but being an introvert that I am, it's hard to make friends this way. I prefer a more natural way of meeting people.. like at work or at an institute etc. Anybody has any suggestions?
