PLEASE HELP. I got a job offer from KJ Logistics Singapore, is this company genuine or fake? Have you heard about it?
I might sound naive because I am. I've only been working in this field for 3 months.
How long does Microsoft normally take to give an offer or rejection? I had 3 back to back interviews 2 weeks ago and no word yet. I was expecting a sooner answer since the team was aware I had another offer. I’m planning on emailing the recruiter on Monday. Thanks in advance.

Potty training tips? We just started with our 2.5yr old and have made 0 progress going on 4 days. He’s super smart and inquisitive and we probably made a mistake in having high expectations. He’s just super freaked out about the potty and just holds everything in.

I’m 24 and I feel lonely. It’s so hard making meaningful friendships at this stage in my life and I’m so depressed about it. I’m stuck with my high school friends and don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for them but I just want to meet new people and build new relationships already. I currently wfh and am in a long term relationship. How do I make new friends and keep them? I tried bumble but that failed completely. Seems like all people want to do now is find other people to go clubbing with ☹️

All these corporate layoff has my anxiety at peak level. I understand they’re mainly in tech right now but just the thought of a recession sends me into a panic for my job. I’ve never been through a downtown in house. It almost makes me miss the security of the billable hour as a value proxy.
How to deal with your partner who works super late every night? I understand we both have jobs and I should be more reasonable... but it sucks eating dinner alone most of the days of the week.
I have a technical interview for business intelligence analyst position. This will be the first time interviewing with the company hiring managers and also my first data analyst job. I’m going to google common DA interview questions to prepare, however, how do you answer a technical question you do not know the answer to without it counting against you?
Anyone at Google Strategy & Ops is open to a chat and potentially provides a referral? I've very interested in a job post.
Hello! We are a smaller company of around 50 people and have recently stopped communicating every departure at a company-wide level and only focusing on the departments/people whose work will be affected by this change. However, this has upset a lot of the team and created feelings of instability around job security. Do you have any best practices to share for smaller companies around off-boarding comm plans? Thank you.
Are folks still wearing sport coats in their virtual interviews? I’ve had a lot of luck with quarter zip + dress shirt, but I suppose it can’t hurt to overdress?
Confused about what SPG counts as a stay. Typically I'd assume it's 2 or more nights but am seeing one or more online. Can anyone confirm? One stay and 5 nights away from gold
Has anyone here ever spoken to a genetic counselor before? If so: what was your experience like and was it helpful?
Super basic tax question, just wanted to confirm my understanding. If I purchased both stocks A and B in Oct 2020 and then I sell both of them tomorrow, which stock A has a loss of $500 and stock B has a gain of $400, for tax purposes, I’ll net these 2 loss/gain together and will have a short term capital loss? And nothing from this transaction will be taxable for this year if I don’t sell any other stocks. Is that correct?

Chicago consulting ppl - how much do you pay for the rent ?

More than one person recommended a woman named Karen (?) who I think has an office at Division and Ashland. I've tried searching but I can't find the thread. Does this ring a bell for anyone?
