I’m planning on not returning back to my job after my baby is born.

So, what’s the etiquette for when to put in notice while on leave? Any ideas?

Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)

I work for a Fortune 500 company, publicly traded. It has no maternity leave, 6 holidays. No sick days (must use PTO). Total of 15 PTO. No summer hours. Is this the worst benefit you see out there? (I also want to add that we are required to go back to the office now even with Covid number increasing)

Anyone hiring those who have been out of work for a year? I took time off to tend to personal matters, but I am now looking to get back into the workforce again. My previous experience includes time at B4 audit up to senior level and then transitioned to manager in industry. Senior/manager roles are preferred.

I don’t mind audit. However, I’d prefer it not to be at a B4, as I am looking for some semblance of a work life balance.

DM me if you have something above, thanks.

After several reschedules, I was finally confirmed with the actual dial-in information ;) for two days 5 interviews. I did the first one with the hiring manager and someone shadowing him. Interviewers did not show up for the second two meetings on the schedule. Not sure what to do at this point. This is AWS. Folks are saying they went through the process pretty quickly. I feel like I already lost a huge amount of time getting the save the date and then taking time off from work.
