If you say you have never done drugs in your life, they say inconclusive. Same thing happened to a few of my colleagues who were very religious/ against drugs.

Do some oxy. It’ll help calm you down so you will pass the poly

Dang, should’ve known that trick for my poly! Lol

Unfortunately it’s junk science so that kind of thing will happen. There is a book online that details how it works, it’s nice to understand what they are looking for.

Cont. however, I was not denied a clearance. Since then, I received a lower level clearance, but scared to take another poly for risk of failing/inconclusive - they were convinced that I do drugs, though I never have. What should I do?

Smoke a blunt and see if the accusation remains.

I recently interviewed at Facebook (Meta) for enterprise engineer E4. Feedback from recruiter was very positive. Everyone on panel recommended me. Received an offer for 223 TC. My current salary is significantly higher (amzn L5/sde2). I am walking out but curious:
1. Is that a standard meta offer? I thought meta pays better than amzn and googl.
2. I have been asked by my recruiter to provide my current salary as data point to go back and negotiate. Isn't that illegal? Facebook (Meta)

I’ve been doing rev cycle consulting for a little under 2 years & I just know it’s not for me. I have an MHA and am more interested in management and operations in a hospital/clinical setting. I don’t want to pursue a career in rev cycle, and am hoping to find my way to some sort of operations, patient experience, or general departmental management position in a hospital. I think the hardest part is figuring out what type of “entry level” position is the right start. Any advice is appreciated!
