Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!

Just finalized and booked my wife and I to a vacation in Europe for end of the year. Feels amazing to call it our honeymoon after 4 years of marriage ❤️ Delayed gratification and totally worth it.

Hey moms, Any ideas for an impromptu last minute 2-4 day trip from NYC that we can take with our 2-month old and parents? Didn’t plan anything under the assumption that he’d be too young, but he was great during our recent road trip to Philly! Desperate to get out but I’m sure everything’s booked for the Fourth of July holiday! Doesn’t even have to be anything fancy ! Just need to get out for a change of scenery! Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
Has anyone ever taken time off shortly after starting a new job? Im starting a new job and want to take 2 days off, within 2 wks of my start date. I will officially be out of classroom training. While I'll be doing on the job training, there's about a 6 month learning curve and I doubt the firm expects me to not take time off for 6 months. We've been planning this for a few months now and it sucks to have to reschedule.

When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?

I have received an offer for a 50% increase in TC to go into a Sales (Solutions Consultant) role. I don’t really want to leave consulting as I left sales 3 years ago to go back to consulting. However my wife and I are expecting and she will no longer work after we have our child. As much as a I don’t want to jump again or go back to sales I’m at an impasse between doing work I enjoy or living (and paying) for the life we enjoy. Anyone experience this dilemma before? Thoughts or advice? ￼
