Any thoughts on interdisciplinary masters to transition careers? I can choose four areas of coursework which for me would be CS, Stats, Econometrics, and a mix of marketing / advertising electives. Currently a generalist and I am looking to make a transition into a PM role.

I received an email today from recruiter asking for a phone interview which I’m so happy to hear from but I applied about a month ago. I moved on and applied internally for a different role as a transfer. This new role is a promotion and my start date is next week. I immediately responded back to the recruiter and agreed to the phone interview for tomorrow 5/4…. Do I mention any of the above to them? Do I tell them I just accepted a new role and different position? Please advise

Dating an older man (he’s mid 40s, I’m mid 20s). We are pretty serious so we are having open conversations about money and whatnot. We just split the cost of a trip 50/50, which was a bit of a push for me but I did it anyways. When talking about future trips, I mentioned that I cannot always split the cost down the middle because I can’t afford as much as he can. I make 100k, he makes ~900k. He retorted that he has so many more expenses than me (which is true... mortgages, etc.) but that (cont.)

After submitting a job application, personally how long do you wait before not hearing any response that you take the intended job out of consideration and move on? (Not counting those random out of the blue jobs where recruiters hit you up 2-3 months later after you’ve applied.) I’ve been on the hiring end so I know how the processes work, so I give it a week max now as an applicant. I wanted to ask what everyone else’s personal timeline was?

Received a job offer ($118K), $17k less than the starting point of the range ($135k - $165K) for this position that the recruiter initially communicated to me. Tried to negotiate and they came back not budging on base but an increased bonus amount (extra 5%). I am interested in the position but can’t help but feel unhappy with their offer. How would you handle? Can I try negotiating again or is a 2nd time too much back and forth?
