I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?
I have a good friend who is looking for a VP of marketing type position coming from a top health system. Minneapolis area, has prior Big 4 experience and an MBA from a top 5 program. Thoughts?

Hey! I’m a self-contained teacher for grades K-2. This is my first year at the school I’m currently in, and apparently in the yearbook every year they have a class page solely for the handful of students in my classroom. They do this instead of putting my students in the yearbook page of the class they participate in for inclusion services. I feel like this is extremely wrong and violates some privacy laws. Do y’all have suggestions on how to bring this up with admin and the yearbook director?
Have you participated in LeanIn Circles at your firm? Thoughts? Also, let's please keep the gender issue hating comments civil if they come at all
I’m currently a systems engineer (4-5 YOE in SE, 2 YOE in customer service before that) with BS in STEM, MS in Technical Mgmt. I’ve been dealing with burnout so I’m currently on the hunt for a new job but I’m thinking about making a pivot into something else - maybe a data science or data analytics role. A lot of my experience for the languages/tools that seem to be required for those roles comes from my undergrad courses and not my SE experience. Can I still put that on my resume?
I have a phone interview with EY for a Supply Chain (Demand Planning and IBP) position. It’s with the director of the talent team and, I imagine, just an HR screening call, anybody have advice?
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
How do you deal with non-accepting family members? I don’t make it a thing, but I’ve been advised to take off my tie and change into more feminine clothing around them. I am okay with not discussing my personal life, but I don’t feel comfortable changing my dress. So I just don’t keep in contact with those relatives. A therapist told me that I am not secure in my gender identity if I am not willing to take off a tie and show compassion to a family member who would be upset by it? Am I selfish?
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
Need advice... I am currently a functional lead with limited knowledge of technology. I have around 15 years of experience and generally play a Scrum Master role in various projects. I’ll be hopefully promoted to Manager in next 3 months I want to upscale myself. I am planning to study microservices, APIs and cloud computing, to stay relevant and employable in near future. Is it worth pursuing technical skills at such stage of my career? I am willing to put efforts in right area.
Sick of corporate crap, considering going from a big company to contractor designer. Diversity experience, portfolio and less excel and meetings a day. Does anyone have anything to share on that?
I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
Let’s hear some stories of adversity and overcoming challenges. Socioeconomic, race, gender, disability etc. Work or personal. I think we all need some inspiration that we can overcome, no matter what.
Just got laid off today.... anyone hiring account executives? 3 years experience working across integrated campaigns in multiple industries. Hungry and eager to get back into the weeds!!
I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?

Does anyone have suggestions on a plan of action to become more fluent in data science, ML, and AI over the span of 1 year? I’ve spent my career on the business side and am thinking through ways to pívot towards IoT work.
It's Friday and I don't want to keep thinking about this so just tell me Y or N and I'll blindly believe you: Will I regret specializing in project management for SaaS stuff (instead of more technical SaaS roles) in 20-40 years?
Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?

Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

This statement made by a colleague infuriates me: “HR has the responsibility but not the authority to change disinterested leadership" Just makes me think what's the point then? Do you agree?
SO was contacted by a recruiter for a research analyst position at a top PE. He’s currently in consulting, doing lots of M&A dd work. The recruiter said the position pays on par with their associates, ~250k. He’s also been contacted by recruiters for smaller PEs associate roles. He’s inclined to try the former, but wanted some advice on whether this is a good route to take. Looking forward to your suggestions, thanks in advance!!
