If you’ve prayed about something and you have a feeling that it’s right & things seem to solve themselves and as each day passes you’re more and more sure. But your parents have prayed about it and say they have a clear feeling it’s wrong. How do you know if small things that happen are “signs” or if they’re just a normal part of life - but after a while you realise the thing that happened wasn’t that big an issue or you feel fine about it after a while. How do you know what’s right?


I have been giving a few interviews lately and every Company is asking me to confirm if i can get my NP reduced from 90 Days to 45 or 60 Days. I'm still under probation but assigned to a Project already. Should I ask my Account Manager and HR about it or its unethical to do so. Am i making a mistake to ask and confirm about NP even before my offer letter or its ok to just enquire what's the process and possibility to reduce NP as we have buyout option too.

First trimester pregnant and not feeling great- I’m a junior who just lateraled. I get to the office later/start working later, find myself naturally slower, generally uninterested, and demotivated. I’m so exhausted- I feel like my head will explode by only 4 pm. Does anyone have a similar experience? What were your typical billable days during this time? Did anyone make comments about you not pulling your weight? Any other insights? Thanks!


I will be going back to work after a STD leave due to stress (both personal & professional). I feel like I'm ready and am looking forward to work even. Today I was told that the insurance company recommends a gradual return to work (3h/d ) for the first few weeks. Now I'm nervous about how that will be perceived by my practice, which focuses on chargeability. I'd rather go back at a 100% capacity to avoid any negative perception. People who have gone on STD leave, what was your experience?

Does anyone have experience transitioning your pups during a move? My pup has lived in my home in city A for his first 2 years and we have moved to a new city B. I still have my home in City A that I go back to once a month and being her with me since the initial move a few months back (to do repairs and prep it for the market). I realize my pup feels so comfy at the home she grew up in, and it makes me sad that she has gotten anxious in the new place


Hi Everyone,

I have received an email for selection as Data Scientist at
However the mail has no detailed information on salary component and various other details like date of joining etc. What should be my next step.

Any information would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.


Hello, I’m an LMSW in Michigan. I have 15 years of experience in the field as a clinician, supervisor, and an administrator. I am feeling burnt out and unsure of my future. I have worked mainly in the Community Mental Health and the VA Health systems, hence my fatigue. I’ve flirted with private practice work in the past, but my spouse has been worried about not having affordable healthcare and benefits that each system provides. Is it worth the jump? Am I overthinking things?

Seeking guidance.

I've been part of proposals, pursuits, and execute business dev work for certain accounts.

What I'm lacking some self awareness over is, how do you "originate" opportunities? Of course the best way is to do when you already have a foot in the door through an existing engagement.

How does, "hey I identified a need that we could pitch for" look like?

I'm working to move up and would like to educate myself.
