When should I start applying to full-time positions if I graduate in December 2022? I currently have an internship this summer in consulting at IBM. And last summer I interned at the Federal Reserve doing compliance and digital transformation. I don't know if I will return to IBM, but I will decide on that based on the experience I have at the internship. However in the mean time I want to explore and see what other opportunities there are. Any advice on when and where to apply for full-time?

I have a brief resume gap from near the beginning of covid but have been at a new employer for >1 year. I’ve been asked about said gap during in-house interviews, but it’s generally been cursory and I give the explanation agreed upon by former employer. Was pressed a bit harder recently by being asked “will x former employer confirm [the story]?” Is this in and of itself a bad sign? Are they trying to catch a lie?

My 22 month old son has been extremely violent recently, mostly towards his father. He bites, scratches and hits my husband a lot, often unwarranted, and once in a while, does the same to me. He is also very aggressively shaking his head back and forth when he doesn’t want to eat anymore and swipes food away that he doesn’t want. It’s pretty monstrous. Not sure if this is normal for his age or if we should start looking at behavioral therapists.
Anyone from DD up to help with a referral?

Hello everyone. Need some inputs of the level of interview for QA Automation role in KPMG. And what is the compensation range for 3.9 years. Please guide.
I’m just a lowly associate. Can someone explain staffing and layoff models. Why’s my firm firing 10 people and then re hiring 8 people. Wouldn’t it make more sense to just reduce salary and attempt to retain people. Just trying to understand the logic
I have been too occupied in this job that I forgot to pay my credit card payment by two days such that it was put on past due status and declined for transactions, and that I did not realize it until I took my card out to pay my medical bill balance ($48 dollars) over the phone this morning after I was called and given the last day payment notice (or else late fee charges) by the dentist office because I let it sit on my desk for several months ...
🐠 fam aged <26, would you accept a promotion to a faang-level company (Salesforce, Airbnb, etc.) for -25% salary? (ae. Analyst -> Sr Analyst, Consultant -> Sr. Associate, etc.) why or why not?

We are at 33 weeks and baby is measuring on the smaller side (17th percentile overall). The stomach is measuring at 8th percentile and wife’s fluids are “on the lower side of normal”, both of which are a bit concerning. The baby is also breached, which may be causing inaccurate measurements. Saw the high risk doctor today who wants to do weekly growth monitoring. Anyone experience something similar? Would appreciate any insights!
How do you keep motivated when you're just over it (the job)? I'm actively looking/interviewing but difficult to stay motivated. Besides the paycheck.

🐳- On a new project, unable to gel with the team/manager, given little context/minimum instructions about the work, but set high expectations. Any tips how to handle these situations?
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
I currently work a temporary position with the federal gov. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family soon. I’m concerned maternity leave may not be on the table due to the “time limited appointment”. The confusion is people’s time limited appointments keep getting extended and some have been there for 1+ year. I’m concerned about the scenario where we get pregnant and then my appointment ends… I’m also nervous about how job hopping will look because I just started in June.
Sabko offer mil rahi hai Here I am applying and not getting a response from any employer. Is it just me or my bad time. Feels like time is playing hide and seek with me.
I have social anxiety and I feel like I am being punished because of that. I am not being promoted and was told to work on confidence even though my technical performance was outstanding. I wished I can just "work on my confidence" and boom. But it's not gonna happen like that. Diversity has been the hot topic these days. Why do we view shy people, introverts, socially anxious people as less capable? Should I accept that PA is not for me or can I do something to contribute?
