I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
So I met a guy through FB and went on a date with him. The date went well and at the end he said lets meet up again - didn’t get to it since he fell sick for a few weeks. Been talking for about 2 months but his responses oscillate from daily to weekly to irregular. We’ll stop texting for a bit then he’ll message back and we start again. But he hasn’t responded for a few days after messaging first, thinking he’s keeping me on the hook, but I don’t want to assume things. Any comments/advice?
Hi fishes, I am currently working with a Top medical device Org but currently there is no learning & no scope of growth here. On the other hand I received a big offer from a startup, which is doing good in India. So my question is, is it a good step to move from a Big US MNC to an Indian Startup ( doing pretty well). Will my profile be hampered when working with startup?
Has anyone taken disability leave, and then used it to look for jobs? How does this work legally?
Just started working in big law. Did anyone see a shift in their immune system? I feel like I’m sick almost every other week.
Went out this weekend for my cousin’s 21st bday. My cousin ended up getting super sick, throwing up at the bar, etc. my buddy and his gf came to the same bar (they were celebrating gf’s bday). Seeing my cousin in a bad state I decided to take her home. My buddy’s gf got super mad at me and my gf for wanting to care for my cousin. She then gave a half assed apology saying she was annoyed at the situation. I don’t really know how to bring this up to my friend. Any suggestions are appreciated!
For those with an HSA, what docs do you keep for your current medical expenses so that you can cash them out later? Is it the receipt? Is it the bill? What is the best way to store those to keep them organized so you have them in the future?
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
Does anyone feel guilty taking sick leave?
Housing market is pretty good; I'd like to buy a place but wonder if it's ill advised since I haven't paid off all my student debt yet and there are rumblings about an impending recession
So I am going to try and jump ship from PWC before the sale, should I start dressing in suits now so days I interview look less werid or just call out sick each day I have an interview?
Curious as to what the views on canibas (medical & recreational use) are in the finance industry. From what I've seen, it's a stigma compared to alcohol, but maybe it just appears that way?
Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
Sister is mentally ill and born with brain injury. I'm sensing she's on her way back to psych ward, as she's displaying her crazy symptoms again. Not looking forward to this
Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
Director put me on a project and claimed this is my test to see if I'm ready for the next step? Ill be managing more junior staff. I wasn't promoted in the last cycle, so why the test now?

I’m doing my first UX portfolio on Wix. I have the case studies content drafted out, but I’m struggling with brainstorming wireframes/actual UI for my case studies. I make it a rule to look for dribbble/behance for inspo but only sketch when im not looking at things because I don’t want to copy directly. I’ve tried using paper/thin markers highlighters, tried using procreate, and also illustrator/photoshop & a tablet. I keep running into issues where I feel overwhelmed. How do I simplify this?
I googled this…no pun intended…but what is the policy for covid vaccines? I read on some articles that it is only for attending the office, but I heard from conversations that all personnel are required to be vaccinated even if they work fully remote.

Considering an offer at DoorDash but I’m curious about exits. Although it is a tech company, you’re working with restaurants and a delivery business for the most part. Technology at companies like Google and Apple are so different, I’m having a hard time seeing how my experience would be transferable. Anyone have any ideas on common exits after DoorDash?

From what I read, EB GC is comprised of following steps roughly: PWD > PERM > I140 > backlog wait time if applicable > I485? How far in this process can I go without endangering my non-immigrant visa status? Can I complete PERM and still renew my TN before filing I140?
I need help. The recruiter at the agency I really want to work at has some sort of weird petty vendetta against me I think? I don’t know what to do. The ECD loved my book and wanted me to move forward. She had the recruiter email me and the email rudely listed all the skills I would need for the job. I wrote back with examples of my work that fit exactly what they were looking for/describing. Now, I’m being ghosted by the recruiter and ECD and have no clue why. It has been two months (cont’d)
