How do you know when you’ve crossed the line of being “blunt”… where you’re too direct in a mean way? Related to work, but actually this is happening more in normal life… I’ll say something and then think that it might be too blunt that it’s mean, but it’s actually what I want and intend to say 🤷🏻‍♀️

For context: I’m upper 20s, have multiple degrees, multiracial, small Midwest “nice girl”, but have had lots of life experiences across the world.

Hello! Any women here in an executive role within a FAANG/tech organization? Over the past year I've had interviews with Google, Uber and Amazon/aws- and so far I've always resolved to stay within 'consulting' because I'm unsure if the 'exit' would be the right move for me.
My question is, what is it like being an executive female leader inside a FAANG - and any guidance on moving into a FAANG as an external hired executive.
Thanks & happy friday!

Hi all, I have a referral for someone looking for a remote recruiting coordinator role. Scheduling, background checks, etc. she is transitioning from a teaching career, and due to spouse being in the military, she is unable to stay in the classroom. Does anyone have a connection on the east coast looking for this type of candidate? Transferable skills are high from one role to the next in my experience!

Debate:
If you’re interviewing for a new position outside the firm and the interviewer is unavailable after your billable hours (staff augmentation project). Typically for appointments (dentist, doctor), we make up the time outside of working hours. Would you A) block off the time on your calendar as an appointment and make up the 30 min outside of normal working hours
OR B) take 30 minutes of PTO for interview

Is discussing mental illness still taboo and stigmatized? There is all kinds of attention to it now more than when I was growing up (I’m Gen X) and more awareness but I’m not sure how it actually translates in the workplace. Some of my co-workers talk freely about their anxiety/depression and say that their managers know about it as well. I’m still wary, like ppl will wonder if I can “handle the work” if I am open and honest about it. Are my views just outdated?
