What is the most amount of times you have Applied to one specific company? It could be different job titles and different states but how many times have you applied to the same company? Sodexo , levy, compass group, Hyatt Hilton Marriott have Applied to all those 30 or 40 times over the past three years. Talk about insanity. I stopped applying six months ago I’m no longer wasting my time with people like this!
I got bumped back to platinum elite on both Marriott and SPG.. after being gold for a few months now (have been on a local project for a year now)

Any tips for hard launching partners on social media? For context, I’ve (Indian American female) been dating my white American boyfriend for 3 years and we just got engaged after two years of convincing my parents. They are very happy and excited now, but I’m scared shitless about being ostracized / judged by my extended family and Indian community in the US once I “let the cat out of the bag” on the engagement news. I want to be proud and confident about this but could use some moral support.

I wasn’t planning on going up for promotion this year, but two partners I work with encouraged me to do so. At first, I did it because I thought I should take their advice, but along the way I got excited about the possibility & convinced myself I had a chance. I don’t know the result yet, but initial feedback wasn’t completely positive. When I mentioned this to one of the partners they didn’t do anything to reassure me. Assuming I don’t get it, how to I avoid being angry and resentful?
