What does turn-around-time look like for a job offer? I’ve had a few interviews lately, all really great opportunities, but the pattern has been that the longer I wait to hear back, it’s more likely I didn’t land the position. Being completely transparent, I’m just feeling impatient about an offer I’m very hopeful for, but with each day I am less hopeful. Has anyone waited a week or more for an offer or is it generally pretty quick?
This isn’t for consulting, but please if anyone could help with a restaurant/ food & beverage director position I would greatly appreciate it. My immigrant father has been unemployed over a year due to Covid. He can’t get a job anywhere despite his stellar experience and work ethic. He speaks perfect English so that’s not a problem, it’s really more so his age I’m afraid he’s being discriminated against. PLEASE if anyone can help to get him a referral/ job ASAP. Thank you.

TEch - SAP ABAP, 4.5Years.
So I went on several interviews, and interviewed with the entire team individually. Just heard back that they said “ it’ll probably be another 1 - 2 weeks before a final decision is made, you are under strong consideration but they do want to finish out a few more interviews of other candidates we have in process.” How likely am I to get this job?
I received an offer from IBM for Senior system analyst role. I didn't accept or declined it. Instead, I talked to assigned HR partner regarding another offer in hand & mailed them offer letter as well.
The Hr said she will talk to management to revise it & revert within 2 days. It's been a week but no revert.
Does Ibm provide a revised offer based on offer in hand?
If yes, how long does it take to release revised offer?
Note : My notice period is 90 days & almost 75 days are left.

Dairy alternatives? I’ve recently discovered that I’m both lactose intolerant and sensitive to the protein in cow’s milk. I refuse to give up cheese, so I’m hoping that lactaid and the fact that the protein breaks down in aged/processed cheese will get me through. So far I’ve tried the Oatly milk in chai from sbux and liked it but that will get expensive quickly. Not a fan of almond or coconut milk. TJ’s oat milk was basically water with oat bits floating in it. Like the vegan dips from TJs
