Started a new job very recently. Like under a month. Interviewing (because i never turn down a convo) at another place that I’m fairly sure will offer me a job. Both these opportunities are good. The first offers a good brand building opp. The second offers a great new media opp. If these events coincided I would take the second. A bit torn on how to handle

How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?

I’m a tech consultant working in the SAP practice. I’m a second year associate. I have decided that I don’t like the culture of consulting - work more hours, always add more work and responsibility to your plate, etc. I would like to work a job that is more 9-5 that doesn’t expect you to work in so many different things at once. What industry roles should I be applying to? Is leaving after 1.5 years too soon?

I’ve put on about 20 lbs during covid lockdowns and haven’t lost a pound since. My SO loves me but (and I agree) has always been big about us keeping appearance and weight in check, first for our health but also for overall attraction. His take is if a disease somehow made me put on weight there’s not a comment he would make but in this case it’s really bad exercise and diet habits. I don’t disagree but I’ve never been so far from my target weight that I just don’t know where and how (cont)
