Hi ladies! I need some friendship advice... I got into a bad argument with a friend a couple years ago and cut them out. I was mean and childish about the whole thing. The friend had tried to reach out since, but I ignored him. I’ve since realized my mistake ... and have reached out to the person to indicate I understand I’m at fault and to apologize. I value him a lot as a friend - I know I fucked up badly, but is a friendship salvageable? He hasn’t responded ... advice?

with:
YoE 8 yrs
Tech - RPA Dev
Curr ctc - 9 lpa fix

Virtusa purposely gave me offer one night before LWD on the name of approvals and I didnt get time to revise other lower offers of
1. Wipro - 15 lpa (13.5 lac fix + 1.5 lac var)
2. TCS - 18 lpa (16.2 fix + 1.8 var)
3. UBS - 18 lpa fix (No var).. not considered due to support proj

I asked 22 fixed to Virtusa but they gave 20 without seeing my offers, did I make good choice overall?

Hi Everyone, so I have a bit of a dilemma i’d like some advice on.

I planned to put in my two weeks at my current job on May 2nd and have three weeks off, however I am in the home buying process and am worried about not having a paycheck. Would it be utterly unacceptable to put in my two weeks on the 23rd and take my planned vacation as my last two weeks?
