It has to be a bachelors masters or phd post doc etc.. essentially not certifications

Thanks. Does it have to be in-person/on-campus or can it be online /virtual.

minimum is full time bachelors with valid work experience in related field , no experience needed if masters or phd.

I need advice. Interviewing with a few different companies right now, and realistically expect at least 2 offers to come my way. Health Insurance benefits will probably be the deciding factor for me. Is there a way to find out if a company's insurance plan would cover trans-related surgeries without telling the HM or the recruiter that I am trans?

I am lateraling. My start date is Sept. 7. I was planning on giving my current firm notice on Aug. 2 so my last day would be Aug. 13 and I would have a few weeks off before starting the new gig. Was just perusing the employee handbook of my current firm and found that the separation policy requires at least 4 weeks’ notice. I’ve never heard of this before, and I’m at a loss as to what I should do. I don’t want to lose the time off but don’t want to lose benefits for Aug. either.
