Most women I know don’t, which I never understood why.. I openly and casually share that in an informal conversation especially because I look young and people tend to undermine my experience because of that (F)

You mean just about how old you are? Yes. Turned 29 some time ago and wanted to celebrate with colleagues - in that setting “age information” would have been an odd thing not to share

funny

When date of birth is mentioned on its implicit age is revealed also your years of experience and education give the ball park clue about age

Hi, I just graduated with a CS degree with data analytics and stats minor, I would love to try to be a PM at google, but idk what they look for ? I don’t even know if I’d be a good fit for the company? I love innovating, solving issues and working for teams , and most importantly talking to customers/clients. I would love to make an impact. Also if someone would be willing to give me a referral, that would be very helpful as well!

How do you keep a smiling face and fake a genuine feeling a connection/likeability during interviews when you know that, despite the interviewer’s genuine-seeming fake smiles and enthusiasm and warmest attitude as if you’re the best candidate and they LOVE you to the moon and back, the only thing coming your way if this doesn’t work out is a cold auto-generated rejection email or worse, complete ghosting. How do you even??? I know “it’s part of the game, just play along” but sometimes it’s hard

I am planning to quit my job in the next day or two (I have another offer), but I don’t want to stay for the full two weeks.

I’m lying in bed right now with such bad anxiety from the thought of working another day here, I can barely breathe.

My boyfriend is away for 2 weeks in a different time zone and limited cell service. While he’s been gone I’ve gotten a lot of unsolicited relationship advice from friends/family. A lot of which is making me insecure about the relationship, which isn’t something I ever feel when we’re together

I’ve let on to a bit of how I’m feeling when we have chances to talk, but I also don’t want to worry him or ruin his trip. I’m just getting so overwhelmed, I don’t know how to get out of my head about it
