Salesforce generically recommends applying to a maximum of 3 roles in 12 months. This feels limiting. Does it really matter? Is there a downside to ignoring that directive?
Someone posted something earlier that brought back awful memories for me. I'm from the Caribbean, living and working in the UK. Well educated and capable. Yet at my old job, if I joined in a conversation one of my colleagues used to say things like, "Wait - the men are talking. Wait your turn." Or even worse, "Hang on, all I heard was, Blah blah blah coconuts!" Or the same colleague would repeat something I said in a hammy Jamaican accent - I'm not Jamaican anyway. Annoyed just remembering it!

Thanks so much!

Hotel recommendation for Palo Alto?
Hello! I am an aspiring front end developer. I have decided to go back to college, and I am considering the WGU, CompSc bachelor program. I really like the idea of a self paced program. I am apprehensive for a few reasons. I want to get as much out of a college program as possible, and I’m not entirely concerned with getting through it as fast as possible. My other concern is that potential employers may not take the degree as seriously as a state college. Love to hear from any HR or senior devs

What type of background check do HF/PE/VC forms so these days? Employment, education and felonies are a given (I think) but is fingerprinting and drug testing still in the mix? How about credit score?

Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since. I have been luck enough getting a few projects without really seeking people out while slowly interviewing. In the back of my mind I have always wanted my own agency. How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
