Virtual Juneteenth celebration anyone? This is one year especially that I don't want Juneteenth to just go by without me actually celebrating or acknowledging it.

Is it a bad sign if a recruiter looked at your profile on LinkedIn but you haven’t heard back yet? For context, applied to Amazon last Thursday, noticed the recruiter checked my profile this Tuesday.

Just me or is it really difficult to create circles and lasting friend groups after 30 here?

Hello everyone! I have been contacted by this recruiting agency called CGC (Career group companies) and they ask to complete some paperworks on their site even before the interview with their recruiters. In my past experience, if I remember well, you fill paperworks only after you have been selected to start the assignment, so I am a little worried about this. What do you advice? Do you know if they are going to prevent me to be hired by companies directly just because I am in their system?
