Trying to keep my knife hands in condition 4, very hard with my current client.

Every single day

Is the knife hand used across all branches?

Coastie here. Yes, we use the knife hand. I’ve been out for 9 years, and I still find myself slipping into knife hand. 😂

I joined a gym and signed up with one of their personal trainers. I sensed the personal trainer trying to flirt with me but I was ignoring the signs because I just wasn’t into him. We text outside of the gym about regular stuff and I’d call him a new friend. Over the holidays, I got a holiday card from him at my home address. I signed up for the gym with my home address, but never gave it to him to use personally. I’ve known ppl to get fired for reaching out to women personally that ..cont’d

One of the team member has applied leaves for continuous 3 days this month. Later she applied for a 15 days leave saying a medical emergency.

Hello! I’m a PharmD with 6+ years experience in a clinical setting (hospital) and have been trying to break into the industry realm for about a year and a half now. Can anyone explain to me why it’s so hard?? 😂 Is it normal to take this long to find something? I’ve had maybe 4-5 interviews and the feedback I’ve gotten is they decided on someone with experience or someone internal (recently ghosted by a company after a panel interview as well). Just wondering if it’s worth it to continue trying.

So. Burnt. Out. Been working at a small full service agency for years now. Like everyone, struggling with lots of staffing challenges (started really right as covid hit). We get people in and others leave- consistently playing catch up. I’m in a situation where it almost feels like I’m regressing as I’m missing someone above and multiple people below me. I am thinking of making a switch to in house. Anyone know of good, fun brands hiring media specific? Ideally east coast, but could be open!

This is a shot in the dark. I have a good friend who is an Afghan National that needs to get out of Afghanistan for obvious reasons. He is currently hiding near the airport in Kabul. I am in constant contact with him. He’s on the evacuation list but we are afraid he may not have enough time until they get to his place on the list. Does anybody know anyone from DOS or DOD that could expedite this process or improve his place on the list? Please message me directly with any leads.


Do I go for a promotion even though I’m being told it isn’t a home run? Is there a backlash/ detriment to declaring for one and not receiving? Would I be wasting folk’s time? This is my first run at a promotion outside the Army.


Anyone from Northrop Grumman willing to refer for a PM role?


Biggest disservice the military (USMC in particular is bad for this, I think) has done for me is give me what I would almost describe as a “fear” of managers, senior managers, PPMDs etc. I know it’s irrational, no manager is gonna act like a salty Ssgt, but I always feel like I’m walking on thin ice.


Hello all. I just got on this app and found this group of wonderful misfits.


Is there anyone in HR that can clarify this for me a little- Hawaii is a state that prohibits future employers from asking your salary. How does this apply to remote positions? Is it only based on the home state of the company? Or would it apply because I am applying from Hawaii?


Anyone familiar with Consumer Veteran Business Leader Program at Amazon? A recruiter reached out asking if I want to apply but she’s been flakey and the only info I have is from the job description.

Perspective. I’m retiring from the service and I’ve positioned myself decently to be competitive. I have a graduate degree pursuing a doctorate, LSSBB, ScrumMaster, SPHR, and PMI-ACP. I’ve been offered two positions that are great and on the human capital team. For someone in this situation where should I be looking as commensurate with my certifications and experience?

Currently on a military LOA and will be returning to consulting near the end of 2022. Does anybody know/have experience with promotions/advancements under USERRA? I ask because my Career Advisor and I discussed going for SC during this year's promotion cycle at the beginning of the year before I knew about this LOA. I'm a bit worried about falling behind my peers. Thank you in advance!


Hello, everyone! I'm new to the bowl, so please forgive me if I'm approaching this wrong. Is anyone currently hiring analytical data roles or willing to give a referral?

I would be more than happy to send you my resume!
