Hey CA Ladies! I am planning a solo trip to CA next month. Flying into LA and renting a car. Any suggestions on a reasonable 2-3 cities to visit while there? I am there for 2 weeks total.

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone! First time using this app. I always wondered, how are other IT help desk jobs? I’ll share how mine is.
I work at an MSP (Managed Service Provider) meaning we are the IT services for many other companies. It’s busy all the time and I get to experience all different types of apps, OSes, and almost every aspect of IT in this way. I make around 50k which is alright but its hectic as there’s too many tickets and not enough personnel. I heard this is common but I’m not sure.

Hi folks, I had a quick question around remote work. My office is in San Francisco but I worked remotely from NJ for clients on the WC.

If it matters, I never set foot in CA.

Should I take a project engineering at ASML? I work in semiconductors at ibm as a hardware guy.

I now conflicted between a good offer and a potential interest in another field all together.
I need a new job but it seems that the job market in SAn Diego is pretty abysmal. I want to leave but only to something better. 😩
