looking for good PBL book recommendations (teacher book club options)

Had a recruiter call me about a job I was being considered for, but didn’t know the salary range, the bonus figure, or the PTO. Basically none of the information a perspective candidate needs to know to form an opinion of whether or not this might be a good fit for them. This isn’t the first time I’ve dealt with this kind of nonsense either.

Let me know your similar experiences. I think we’re all being phished and taken advantage of whenever possible.

Family coming to the US for 4 weeks. Any suggestions on what places to visit? I live in ATL & travel Mon-Thurs. I will not be able to take more than 5 days of leave, so mostly planning weekend travel.

I am so beyond ready to leave my current job, but can’t yet, since bonuses are paid out in January. 😬

In the meantime, I’ve applied to a lot of similar roles (slightly higher) but have not heard - good or bad - from any. Is it common for companies to slow down hiring in December because of Q4 rush, people on holiday, etc.?

Hi all,

I am an IT professional having almost 5 years of experience and want to move to Canada for PR. My CRS score is not upto the cut off. I need someone who can help in earning connections points for Manitoba PNP program.

As it allows having an acquaintance or a friend to earn those 20 points, it can help my PR application.

Anyone who is PR and resident of Manitoba can dm me to discuss around it. I am ready to pay for this assistance as well.

Worst part about being unemployed is the pity face everyone makes when you tell them. If I hear one more "don't worry you'll find something soon" I'm going to scream. Trying to be helpful is one thing but pitying me helps no one and makes me uncomfortable.
