I went through two rounds of interviews for
a job that the posting stated $36.66 per
hour (FP&A Analyst)…the company
recruiter had told me in the initial call the
pay could be 32-36 because of the other
benefits. If I do get a job offer what range
should I try for? I was really hoping to get
around the 36-40 but now I feel like they
may try to offer lower than what was
posted. Also there was no range but the
average for this position is upper 70s-90k.
Thanks for any help!

My partner struggles with trauma-related depression. He’s asked that I reach out every day to find a time where we can check in during the work day, even if we’ve had quality time in the morning or have evening plans.

This feels like a big ask to me. I requested we not check in *every* work day, and he agreed, but still sends me guilting texts if I don’t reach out about it. I want to support his emotional needs, but this feels codependent and I feel myself growing resentful. Is this reasonable?
