Shocking reality: your GPA and test scores don't make you special.
The reality is that there will be more qualified people applying to HBS or any other top Business schools than they have spots. If you aggregate the number of people from MBB/ banking/Tech/ Military that apply to these firms, I would argue that’s well north of the 50% of these applicants. I can also assume that the people from these backgrounds are likely to have north of a 3.5 GPA due to the selectivity of these careers.

I have over 10 years experience in design/marketing. The companies I worked for are small businesses (Less than 100 employees) so I’ve had to wear many hats (e-mail, print, social media management & ads, and very little google analytics and ads). I’m considering a change in career and would like to work fully-remote. I feel inadequate for the current workplace. I know no UX/UI, relatively no web design, no video experience. Is it imposter syndrome? Any tips or recommendations?

Seeking tips and tricks on how successfully negotiate part time PA work. I’m a burned out full time mom that’s lost passion for the PA life.

Right now my job is to develop automation solutions and it takes a lot of brain power. Are there part time cpa jobs? It seems like a 🦄 request and the options are either PA 55 hr weeks or scanning groceries?
Mecole Hardman vs. Demarcus Robinson - who would you prefer to have? Julio and Godwin are my other WRs, looking for flex or bench depth.
I'm from Baltimore, and lately, we have had a crazy buying spree, I mean I have sold the same property 2 times in less than 2 weeks, and the person who bought it immediately put it on the market and made an average of $25k in less than 5 days. Many reports show that investing in Baltimore and Philadelphia is the future, I don't doubt it. What is the fastest you have ever resold a property?

How much do you like getting ghosted?
Ditto to Lyndsey at creative cove
LOL I actually got ghosted by the only recruiter I came into contact with. AND I sent my email to this other company and I'm pretty sure they sold my information to third parties because I'm getting spammy job alerts now
