Just read this and loved it!!

Prediction Machines if you’re interested in the impact that AI/Machine Learning will have on business from an economics standpoint.

Extreme Ownership to read about leadership and leading a team in a business setting as told by Jocko Willink, a former Navy SEAL. He also has an awesome podcast, too

Second Bad Blood! Also Becoming by Michelle Obama

Thanks!

Vacation, so nothing serious. Needs to be fiction with some humor or sarcasm with an unexpected twist

Hello guys. I had an interview im Cognizant recently. They conducted a telephonic technical round.
They gave me no timelines though.
When can I expect a call back from them regarding the next round/update?

I have been at the current hospital I work at in administration for about 11 years now. I am treated great, love the people and love the hours. They allow me to really create my own schedule based on my needs and have taken great care of me over the past 11 years. The only problem is that our CEO has stated that we will never be a company that gives yearly raises, merit based or cost of living. I have been offered another job with a competing hospital but scared to leave. Advise?

Not giving first number is a frequently mentioned tip but it’s not always good advice. I know several people who followed this rule and simply got offered lowballs with slight to no room for negotiation.

If you have some data on possible ranges, I think it’s better to give the number you want first. I’ve had recruiters say they can’t meet that and we don’t proceed, saving us both time. And if they can, then it’s less likely to be lowball.

Do you adhere to not giving a number first?

Can someone give me high level description of the quant portion of your case @BCG to give me a sense of what to expect in interviews

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.
