I start a new job tomorrow. It’s a promotion to manager and I have having some imposter syndrome thoughts. Fake it till ya make it right?
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

I just got promoted over a friend and I am really worried about how this will impact her. To be honest I think she is even more deserving of the promotion than me. What do I do to make it better so our friendship isn’t poisoned by this?
Declined a job offer with 18% raise a few weeks ago because I wasn’t ready to move companies. Starting to regret it but took a risk hoping I’ll love my next project. How will I know if I made the right decision?
So I made a job update (promotion) on my LinkedIn profile and made sure to also enable 'Share with Network' but why isn't my network being informed of the good news through notifications. Is there some sort of delay or bug going on with LinkedIn? HELP

What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
So what happens to current Ms at the new tiering levels? Especially if they were gunning for a D promotion in the next 1-2 cycles? Do they jump up to SM2? Or just have an extra 2-2.5 years added to their cycle?
Just sitting here thinking.. Dang, I got a 3% annual raise. I feel worthless to my firm. I should leave.
One of the SMs is supporting my promotion case but they are lately trying to micromanage me and ask all nagging questions unnecessarily. Unsure how to handle this professionally.

Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Everyone talks about career suicide if you leave big 4 too soon, but shouldn’t overall life satisfaction be more important?
Salary negotiation Applied to a job, agreed a salary expectation of £125k to £135k. Discussed range as achievable on two separate occasions. 3 interview rounds later, offer of £106k. Strong pushback from me on the call and a follow up note. Awaiting a revised offer. Any thoughts on that strong a lowball opening offer? I am both irritated and intrigued.
I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.

Does anyone have any tips on conquering fear of flying? I have a phobia that I will have a panic attack on the plane while flying alone. I just got prescribed Xanax just for the flight but have never taken it before and would love to know if that has helped you? (I’m not scared of crashing or anything, I’m just claustrophobic and hate not feeling in control and have panic attacks about having panic attacks haha.)
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
