Hi! I'm a systems analyst (YOE - 2 yrs. If adding internships, then 3 YOE) and trying to pivot into data analytics/science. A fast learner with a decent amount of transferable skills. I've been taking online courses for the past several months to add necessary skills to my resume (SQL, Looker, etc.). Anyone willing to provide a referral to Google, Apple, Slack, Okta, or Facebook?

Hi, would love some advice! I’ve been at my company ~1 yr and feeling like I need a change due to various reasons. Not sure if I can apply elsewhere w/ a little less than 1 yr under my belt, and I don’t have many connections in my area.

What’s a good stepping stone role (remote preferred)?

Offered a contractor role at a HF for $200K annualized but they said it would only be a 6 month contract with potential for extension to 18 mo. I’m currently making $100K. Is this worth it at all? I like the job but don’t know if it’s a bad deal. I know loading rates are generally 1.8 - 2.2 so that’s why I’m unsure.

Is there a concensus on weather the 200k mba cost is a positive or negative ROI for those that are already in a post-mba role and will not get much of a pay bump from the mba? Assuming the post mba salary will be pretty much the same as if the person stayed for another 2yrs

Lady 🐠, every time I see one of these lists publish I always puke. For the most part I don't see our most talented and creative being highlighted...

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
