Happy Monday! I’m planning a trip to the Greek Islands (Mykonos and Santorini but open to more/other islands/cities) around May/June 2023. Looking for any and all recommendations; and I’m still trying to decide if we go the hotel route or do this via cruise. Any insight at all is appreciated!

I just received a job offer at a company I'm very interested in working for (yay!). Their salary offer, however, is at the bottom end of the range specified in the job ad. In my initial interview, I said that my salary expectations align with the range specified by the ad. So, my question is do I ask for more? Or do I just accept the offer? The company benefits are decent and I would get stock options, and it's fully remote - if that influences your answer.

What do y'all think?

Now, when I’m trying to switch I’m unable to get an offer partly because I don’t know how to structure case studies. Desi folks who work at Tier 1 and 2 firms, could you suggest resources I can use to learn how to interview, especially case studies? Is this something that you learnt in your masters course? TIA!
