I am at a point in my job search (2+ years, laid off 5 months before COVID) where I’m really starting to think the career I have chosen doesn’t want me back. I worked in HR previously, and I have no idea where or how to start figuring out a new career path. I’m stable money-wise for now. But with the student loan repayments coming active again soon, the money situation will get tighter.Any advice on changing careers after 40? Much appreciated!
Just posting to show off my new unicorn 🦄 badge 💁♂️. Apparently, I’m a coronavirus “enthusiast.” Have a good day!

I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID. We don’t have family nearby to help when daycare closes and I’ll be headed into busy season upon my return. I’m already on a reduced schedule. No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.
For those of you who have been vaccinated, what changes in your lifestyle do you anticipate? I’ve had the first shot and the next in a couple of weeks. Can I return to pre-Covid life?

*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.

Hi All, Say you have an offer for Senior Test Engineer and SDET (not senior). Compensation is same. Both the companies are good.

Joined a big 4 recently, need some help from people in sox testing field. Finding it hard to cope up, please DM me.

Just realized I forgot to put my minor on my resume (Business) and only listed my major, but the minor is on my transcript which is included in all my applications. I’ve interviewed for some spots and waiting to hear back but now I’m scared that this oversight will cost me😭
