An agency I’m interested in is hiring. I have a connection there who said the GCD’s are looking at my book and should reach out soon. Should I still apply through the website? I feel like it would be a bit much if I did at this point. Any thoughts?

I’ve honestly never applied through a website. All my jobs have been through connects that have my book already. If you know the GCD, you can ask him for an update in a few days or even ask for the recruiter’s info. Plugs are better than applications.

No harm in doing it. I can’t imagine a scenario in which you’d be looked down upon for doing so.

They will probably reach out and have you apply anyways, they need that information in their system.

Hi Fishes

I gave google silicon interview all 4 rounds 3+ months back, from then they are saying they want to hire me but headcount approval is not yet received.
Last week they said, lets go for one more round and finalize immediately. That interview also went very good.
Post that they didn't call back itself, they have stopped responding also.

Has anybody faced this issue? This I feel completely unprofessional and not really expected from Google.

Thanks

529 Plan VERSUS Prepaid

We live in Florida and currently have a Freshman in High School and a 16 month old. We hear from our friends and family with college bound children "I wish we would have done Florida PrePaid." After obviously ignoring this for years, we are finally trying to do it before "it's too late" for both children.

Does anyone have recommendations on which plan to go with for each child? I once did the pros and cons on a whiteboard and it seemed like 529 was better.
