Hi! I found a Salesforce position in corporate development that I think I'm an excellent fit for! Is it best to apply through a referral? Also, since the position is remote, does it matter if it's based in one state and I'm in another? I've been hearing great things about Salesforce and am very excited about this opportunity. Any advice is greatly appreciated! I seriously think this is my dream job :)

Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing. The sub had rearranged my stuff and taken candy (that I had intended to give to the office workers) and said she gave it to one of my classes. I am livid. Am I over reacting?

My Apple TV told me the remote battery was low, so it took it to Apple and asked them to change the battery. Oh god, the horror when the guy told me to charge it “like you charge your phone."
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next

Hi All I am a Key Account manager at a company that manufactures and sells PPE. I moved to London a year ago and have built up a great pipeline and grown the company I work for exponentially. I am looking to move into SaaS sales or into the general tech scene in London as there is more room for growth and earning. My question is , how do I go about making the move into software or tech when all jobs require experience in SaaS. Do I have to take a step back in my career back to SDR or AE?

I am wondering, in Kerala still daily COVID cases are more that 10k daily. From such a small state , it seems like this would be the highest in the world these days.
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?

I recently received an offer from KPMG Global Services for 27 LPA. I have got another one from DXC for 31 LPA(including VP). As I'm more inclined towards KPMG I reached to KPMG HR asking to revise the offer letter. However, I was informed by the KPMG HR that both the offers are almost same as KPMG does not mention VP in the offer letter. Is that correct? If yes, what's the percentage that is normally paid out?
