Seeking a really kind, quick favor: I was let go during my probationary period and was given a 6 page, brief severance document to sign if I want. I don’t know a single lawyer and wondered if anyone would be willing to just glance it over so I can sign? I live in NYC. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.

Hi everyone,

Is £48k a decent salary in London? That's roughly 3k net/month.
I'm a 27M, single.
I'm thinking of renting a room for 750/800 a month, that leaves me with ~£2100, if I get the Oyster card that's another 150, and for groceries/going out I guess I won't need more than 600/month.
That allows me to save ~£1400/month.
Am I being too optimistic/unrealistic?

Thanks!

My fiancée almost lost her life to a medical emergency. The doctor needed me to stay home 2 weeks to supervise her post-operative care once the hospital discharged her. We had nobody near that could help so I got permission to attend class remotely for 2 weeks from the dean and all professors. One professor removed me from a graded argument the week after I’d return. When I asked about this error, he had said “I had planned on your failure to appear” and that he preplanned giving me a 0 grade.
