Anybody who has felt maxed out in recruitment? What do you do? Do you try other industries first but stay in recruitment or do you try to change positions with more diversity of tasks? I now feel that everything I do is the same old, and although they say I am doing a good job, it is also a constant stress daily for applicants not showing up, failing pre-employment requirements, etc and I wonder if this is also present in other areas of HR.

Oh man, I just started 3 months ago and am already feeling just meh about it. Totally curious what others have to say about this.

In recruiting, if you're not at redline ALL THE TIME then they will figure it out quickly and give you more work. Ask if you can get on projects around employment branding (if you like marketing) or tech vetting (if you like IT and picking the tools you will use to succeed.) Regardless of level, you are always doing the same thing - sourcing, screening, onboarding.

Tech vetting sounds amazing. 😍

Thanks for making this bowl all gender inclusive. The other bowl simply was outdated and lacked any kind of diversity whatsoever at all.


The ad industry is legendarily homogenous. Won’t unionizing simply close ranks & protect existing white professionals, who then protect other professionals just like them, resulting in LESS diversity?

Do you ever feel like you were a "diversity hire"? Have you ever thought your coworkers thought of you as such? This is an insecurity I battle all the time.


You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

Is QEF inclusion dividend or not? Sometimes, I see QEF inclusion reported on Line 11i and sometimes on Line 6a. I think we can rely on Sec. 1293(c) but I think it’s not foolproof. My hunch is since QEF regime is tailored to treat the PFIC similar to domestic mutual funds, we should not treat the QEF inclusion as dividends. Any help is appreciated.

Have competing offers from EY and KPMG UK Economic advisory teams( Manager/Snr Exec level). KPMG's UK technical rep and comp offer is better, but the hours appear longer. EY UK Director has had several calls selling culture (diversity and work life balance). Is there actually a substantive emphasis on this by EY? Or are 50+ hour weeks quite common? I suspect it's going to be quite team dependent/ project dependent, and therefore a gamble in any case. Thanks for any perspectives.

Next question (based on a great conversation in 1 of the threads): how do gender roles and expectations play into your decisions about work and family?

It's really pathetic to see guys getting desperate on this bowl and due to such guys all of us get labelled creeps. I can understand you guys are not getting any due to the skewed gender ratio but please maintain some dignity. I am sure if the gender ratio was skewed in reverse then women won't be behaving in such a desperate manner and would rather stay single. My request to all guys is please have some self respect because this desperation won't lead you anywhere

Seeking the next right step and a move away from a highly toxic company. I have a lot of experience in low voltage, alarm, and SaaS. I find myself generally disgusted with the SaaS industry.

Lateraled to a firm about 7 months ago and have been really unhappy. It’s not what I was told at all while interviewing, I’m getting administrative work as a mid-level, and it’s impossible to get a response from anyone at the firm whether work-related or office-related. I’m hesitant to lateral again given the threat of an upcoming recession. Any advice?


The partner I work with wants me to dictate everything for the secretary to type. I feel that I am better at typing and more productive typing my work out. I have never dictated anything in my life and don’t think I would be very efficient or effective at it, I also hate the sound of my own voice. He keeps trying to push me into dictating but I want to type my stuff out, I do not think I am that slow at typing my work etc and I am getting assigned tasks done so I do not see a difference.

Hello amazing people! - I recently transitioned into a "Senior" CSM role and I was hoping to get some direction with regards to continued career growth. I've navigated politics and growth decently thus far. But, it would be great to get a real framework built to continue towards a "Director" or "VP" role in the next 2-3 years. Do any of you have suggestions or contacts in the career coach arena? Or any suggestions in general on how to get to the "next level"? I'm in Automotive FinTech / SaaS

Biden's potential billionare tax had me thinking about revenue raised and the interest on the debt. As rates rise the debt will become increasingly un-payble. last year interest was about 10% of all revenue, if t bills are at 2.9% it may cost upwards towards 800 billion this year. Does anyone actually see a solution or are we just going sit back and watch everything fall apart :D
