I submitted a project for part of an interview on Friday. I haven’t heard back from the hiring manager. Should I allow more time to review or is a follow up today acceptable? It’s for a sales position so I’m wondering if it’s a test as part of the project.

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

Don’t plan on spending a ton of money or traveling this year due to COVID
Would like to eventually fund a nice vacation using CC points.
What do I pick? Does preferred make more sense now? Can I just upgrade to Reserve later on in my 20’s if it makes more sense then?

Are there basic primers on makeup (pun intended)? I have never been big on it and don’t even know what a concealer is or how to apply mascara. YouTube videos are so intimidating. Can I just walk into Sephora or are they going to upsell 7,000 unnecessary things because I’m a sucker? Firm is relaunching the website and making everyone re-take photos. Better yet, can I just walk into a salon before the shoot and have someone do it?

Hi Everyone, so I have a bit of a dilemma i’d like some advice on. I accepted a new position but my start date is not until June 6th because I have a two week trip to Italy planned May 23rd to June 3rd. I planned to put in my two weeks at my current job on May 2nd and have three weeks off, however I am in the home buying process and am worried about not having a paycheck. Would it be utterly unacceptable to put in my two weeks on the 23rd and take my planned vacation as my last two weeks?
