Do 🐠 take LinkedIn messages/calls with third-party recruiters? I'm sometimes interested but the messages are always about a vague job/title with a vague description.

I usually try to validate the opportunity by messaging back and forth a bit before taking the call....and then usually say I only have 10min in advance,

I usually ask what exactly about my profile has interested them, but will almost always hear their pitch as you just never know.

Post-MBA: Consulting (MBB) or Product Manager at Amazon? Have a technical undergrad/work ex so leaning consulting just to try it out but think product is where I ultimately want to end up long-term. Worth trying or should I just go straight to PM since I know that’s my long term goal?

I’ve tried so many medications and the only one (Lexapro) that effectively curbs my anxiety/depression makes me almost numb during sex and makes it extremely hard for me to orgasm. I am also doing therapy in tandem with new (non-sexual-side effect) medications and neither have stopped my a/d from being debilitating towards reaching my goals. I’m 26 and I want to enjoy sex and not have these meds prevent me from intimacy in a potential relationship. Anyone else experience this? Any advice? Cont

How do you deal with a crazy manager? My manager is the most micro-managing, erratic and emotional person I’ve ever worked under. The gaslighting is unreal.
