Any recommendations for starting investing in 401k? I currently do not invest anything but my firm matches 25% of the first 6 % I contribute.

At least 6% so you don’t miss out on free money

Just bare in mind that employer contributions will still be treated similarly to a traditional account as pre-tax. Not a deal breaker, just something to keep in mind.

I would make sure to contribute at least 6% to get the match. That is free money for you. If you don’t know anything about investing, put it all in a target date fund or in a SP 500 fund depending on your options.

Don’t disagree with that at all

Deloitte does 401K on Vanguard, if you want to avoid market volatility, you can choose a fund that’s closer to maturity (such as the Vanguard Target Retirement Income Trust). These are usually very safe funds centered around bonds (think low risk, low return). You can always move your money to other funds once the equity market calms down

This is truly a “lifestyle” firm. My benefits are amazing, my hours requirement is only 1500/year, and the pay really good. If you bill more than the minimum, you’re rewarded extremely well for it.

Hello, fellow newbie here 😀
Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary? I'm doing great at my current role selling senior health insurance (76k give or take a year) but I know I'm capable of selling at a higher commission range. My calls at my last company were all cold (around 100 a day). I got job offers as a recruiter and also a few SDR offers but both fields the base is under 45k. I have a four year degree and one year of sales experience. Thank you

Hi everyone! I was hoping to receive some advice with how to transition to product management.

I've been applying for PM or APM roles since March 2022 at various hospitals and healthcare companies but I've yet to get a shot at a 1st interview. Any ideas on how to improve my odds?
