Someone sent me a copy of their resume and I know there test scores are inflated. It’s not my resume so I don’t care what they do but curious about how inflated test scores are detected when applying
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
I hope to get some thoughtful responses from this post and nothing more. I work for a mid-tier firm after working for big 4s, I joined here after being let go. Having worked for a year, I kind of have this constant thought in my mind that my next lay off is coming. Reasons I think I don’t meet the expectations- in a way my work quality is average. Given am on H1b and a family man, this constant thought of lay off is driving me so crazy that I fear might take me to depression. What should I do?
I know this is a story that repeats in this bowl but I’ve finally reached my end with this industry. While the pay is great, I’ve grown to dread work. I understand that client side isn’t utopia but where else does a “seasoned” ad person end up?
Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?
Does anyone have any advice on how to figure out what the average multiplier for billable hours is in a certain city? If this isn’t clear, I’ll receive x ($) times (the difference between my max billable hours and my min) as my yearly bonus. I know what number my firm uses but was told it’s been the same for years. I’d love to advocate for a raise with numbers reflecting averages in our city but have no idea how to find this information. Thanks!
Does industry usually drug test for marijuana? In a medical state w/ a script from a doc. If so, do I just bring my prescription with me as if it were Xanax/adderal/ etc?
Best rewards credit card?
How common are leaves of absence in PA? I’ve never seen someone out of work longer than a couple weeks other than for parent leave, but people on fishbowl talk about it as something you can reasonably ask for.
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
Can you apply for Diversity Lottery while u r on non immigrant visa (F1, H1B, O1)? Would this action cause conflict from dual intent perspective nd jeopardize ur employment based GC in future?
Genuine question here… why do I have energy and wake up early when I am on vacations versus when I return to work? I’ve been struggling to wake up early in the morning and I work from home.
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Got an offer for 110k TC for a data engineering role at a T2 tech company. I have 2 YOE. Currently at 84k. Both current role and offer are located in Toronto. Should I take it?
So today I was promoted to senior associate after just over 5 years at the firm. But I still want to leave. So my question is this - how many months should I stay for the guilt (explained below) to fade away before I leave? Guilt - the firm allowed me to work remotely in another country as I pursue a postgraduate degree. There are better opportunities in this country and the salary I would get as a starting salary here can never be matched by the firm.
