Hi! I have been working in consulting for the past two years (1-year gov consulting, one year at a private startup firm), and I recently realized that I am not super happy/fulfilled in my consulting role (Sunday scaries are turning into dreading my week). I have a masters in applied psychology with a concentration in I/O. Wondering what the optics would be if I left and switched to a completely different industry. I have a passion for people analytics, UX, and market research.

FTM here, How did you figure out the feeding position for your newborn. Nothing seems to work for me. He has good latch but any of the positions are not comfortable for me and causing me back pain. Adjusting supporting pillows while changing sides is pain too.
Went to couple of lactation consultants and there every thing works fine since they help out with all the adjustments but at home it’s all me who is doing the adjustments and nothing seems to work.

please help!!

Hi there! I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly. Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team. I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation. What are your thoughts?
