Considering a big career shift from 100% virtual role at a consulting firm to an in-person HR role in DC. Happy in my current role except for the fact that it will only ever be remote, and feel like I need to network/be in person while I am young. Worth it to make the switch and take the risk of leaving a good job for an unknown one?

If it’s important to you then it matters - period. What are some other ways you can replicate a team environment? Maybe co-working sessions with friends at the company or outside?

Go for it. Every job change has speed bumps but we get stronger from them. If you hate it, will they take you back or are you confident there are other jobs out there in this good job market? I hear you regarding feeling like part of a team in person sometimes - been virtual for 2 years and am very lonely, easily distracted, and think my productivity has gone down and with it the potential to get promoted.

Found a random engagement ring.

Hi all, so I found a platinum ring (which I assumed it's an engagement ring as it has dates and initials engraved on top.) And a Divvy tag (I have no idea what it was until I googled it. Apparently it's a bike sharing service in Chicago) in a briefcase I ordered online. I was thinking of returning the item back to the store but that wouldn't help the person who lost the ring. Attached is a picture of them.

What should I do now?

The new job that I have looks good on paper (can buy PTO, programs, WFH 60%, etc.), but my other company just feels like home.

I miss the people, I miss the growth opportunities, I miss how much I learned everyday, I miss how supportive my Manager was. It truly feels like I’m missing “home”.

Should I stick the new job out for longer, or should I reach out to my previous employer?
