Absolutely! But maybe more so for older folks (as in 30+). Drinks and networking type events are irregular, and non existent right now in most regions.

Yes. People who hate the same things bond almost as well as people who love the same things 😆.

I thought my coworkers at my last job were friends until nefarious gossip made its way to HR and it negatively affected people’s reputation. From then on, I’ve never tried being more than superficial friends with coworkers - many of them are fake

Hello everyone, its my first post here and it's something important to me in this moment.
I am 22 years old, making my career as a programmer since I was 19.
One year ago I started studying to become a web developer, nowadays I have more than 150 hours of formation about React, a good knowledge of HTML and CSS, and I also know about some backend technologies as Node and Spring.
I just want to know, how do I get my first job if every applic. you have to show some years of experience or projects.

Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?

Hi fishes, am I being too restrictive by limiting the search for my next opportunity to the below? For context, NYC. 12 YOE, of which 3.5 are in internal strategy and 2 as consulting EM / SM equivalent (right now).

2. Nyc based, <~50% in office or remote
3. Strong brand in product or tech
4. $300-350K+ TC
5. (Nice to have) people leader role, because that's one of my strengths.

Had my first recruiter call today. When they asked me about my comp expectations, I asked them to tell me their range first and they said that they couldn’t disclose it as it was confidential. However, if I told them my range, they could tell me if they could match it or not. Is this standard practice? I didn’t want to disclose my range first but they didn’t leave me with a choice.
