"Best time to switch is when you are not really looking to switch"

This is a statement I read on Fishbowl, and looking back at my own experience, it's kind of true, I got the best (in a sense company brand wise) offers when I was relaxed and was casually looking out.

Any Comments? Any thoughts.. ???

True, cracked all the interviews without preparing. Out of them, two were big brands. However, the package they are offering is less, and when I get a promotion at ZS, I can easily get close to that package in a year. Hence, you should work hard to get more certification/skills (breadth+depth)

Now that I think of, it is kinda true in my case too. I got best offers when I was relaxed and casually gave interviews with zero expectations. But I think that’s because I was simply asked to talk about my work and no questions about stuff I needed to explicitly prepare for.

Yeah I also read this comment on Fishbowl and I completely agree with this.

I think I need to talk to someone one on one. I’m in a heterosexual relationship and have never explored a WLW relationship, but I am sooo interested in women and feel really sad that I might never get to experience being with a woman. I love my boyfriend and would be so devastated if we broke up. :(

Is it considered unprofessional to send an email instead of a formal letter? Specifically, my firm has been retained by a title insurance company to obtain an easement for an insured property. Our first step is to reach out to the neighbor to ask them to grant the easement directly. The neighbor is a realtor and I easily found his email address online - I went to draft an email to him but found myself wondering if it’s unprofessional to send an email rather than formal letter. Thoughts?

Often in the interview, interviewer asks about how virtual dom works or what is react or where is implementation of setTimeoutEffect(in v6 or ESMAScripts). Or Even in Nodejs interview they ask about event loop or v8 engine r libuv which is not required while programming with nodejs. I was just curios why they ask these, because in actual development I dont think these concepts are much helpful (even if those are the once we build things on), these are only for what is happening in background
