Are braggy LinkedIn posts like this ever appropriate? This one really rubbed me the wrong way, especially since a recent grad is bragging about three internships and offering career advice when so many people are unemployed, sick, protesting, etc.

So I had been working as medical interpreter up to the early part of this year. Today, during an interview, the Director with whom I was interviewing genuinely urged me to consider pursuing a career as a PA or even attempt to go to medical school. I had considered it in passing before but today was about the third or fourth time that someone had earnestly nudged me in that direction. Has anyone here made such a career pivot before? I love working in healthcare, there’s nothing like it.

Not sure why some companies are forcing people to return to the office. I would like to go back to the office at my own discretion on a case-by-case basis (big client meetings, annual planning meetings, pitches, etc.). I think that if i have a period where i’m just doing normal day-to-day tasks, why do i need to commute to an office?? Thankfully my company is super flexible with remote working.

When can we expect a world where stereotypes of men and women disappeared and people around you don’t just judge your marriage life? By stereotypes I mean people normally think men have to be the one who mainly financially support the family and people think women feel happy if they have such husband even if she is only a housewife. Why cannot be the opposite? When the wife earns more money and husband doing housework, it seems unacceptable and ppl judge the wife is not having a happy marriage.
