I’m also looking in PG and have looked at some places in Upper Marlboro. Do you have / plan to have kids? I feel like a huge variable for me is if I will still be there when I have kids and if so, whether I will plan to go in-district, magnet, or private school route.

I’m single right now and don’t see kids any time soon. But definitely valid concerns. I’d likely go the magnet or private school route.

Thoughts on Clemson vs. Texas A&M and LSU vs. Texas?

Working at a Big company where you spend most of the time in following with different teams, and very less time in actually developing a feature, but socially you are praised because of the reputation of the organisation.

On a contrary working for a start-up where you spend most of the time in design and development, but socially you need to spell out the name of the organisation, just to make that clear 😅

Which sounds like a better life ?

I don't get why so many people think the moment we open up, life and the economy will go back to normal.


I have started my career in backend web development. (NodeJS)
It's been one year.
So far I like what I'm doing.
However I hear so many stories of how people in cloud , ML or data science earn huge packages.
So, to survive or earn well, should I consider switching to any of these ?
If possible could you help me with what to learn and any resources for that ?


Lmao that's the goal!

NY here also btw


Just accepted a job as Social Worker at a 56 bed SNF. Was told at interview that working hours were 8:00-4:30. Now finding out that the social worker normally works 8am-7:30pm regularly. She also doesn’t take lunches. Just wondering if this is the norm or will I be able to adjust some things and work normal hours after she leaves?

Hello, I wish to progress in the M&A space. I have a close to 3 years of experience in Financial due diligence and valuation. I am on the verge of completing an accountancy qualification. Do you guys have any idea how I can break into either consulting, PE/VC, or corporate development roles. Given my level of experience and not completely focusing on M&A what would be best way to progress. I'm looking for roles in the EU.


Hi, we're searching for a job in HR for my wife. She's an MBA from India and has 10 years of work experiences across various HR roles in FMCG and Tech. Her last role was a HR BP and India site lead for a US based semiconductor major.
Is CIPD necessary to get a comparable role in the UK? While we undersrand it's a new market, would she necessarily need to start from a basic role again? It's difficult to balance studies, work and manage a 2 y.o. Any pointers or job openings would be appreciated.
