A woman here: just accepted a fantastic job offer and managed to score 4 of them being unemployed during the search. I want to reward myself for the hard work of owning my career. But I don’t want Hermès, Chanel, VCA or Cartier as it feels like an empty purchase now with all the wfh. I thought of new Balmain blazer, but again WFH. What would you buy for yourself as a reward? Extra points for sustainability. No Tesla, please; I hate the way they treat their employees.

Anybody work with United Healthcare? I just had a second interview. I did some research prior to the interview about the employee benefits, but did not see if health insurance if offered upon hire date or after the 90 day period. I typically don’t like asking this during an interview. Thank you!
I still have a 35k Marriott free night set to expire 6/30 if anyone wants it. I have titanium status so it should also come with free breakfast and a pretty good upgrade chance (especially if it’s only a one night stay). Let me know if anyone wants to buy at a discount, would much rather see someone use it then it go to waste.

This is a question for attractive women that have worked in the office environment along side coworkers. Do you get along with women in your office? Have you felt animosity? Do you have trouble getting along/socializing? Have they changed their attitude toward you completely? Please help me understand. I’ve been dealing with these issues. After a few positions, I honestly can’t believe that I’m always the problem. Being an attractive woman in the workplace doesn’t always reap rewards.
