I started a new relationship ~2.5 months ago and (b/c it’s new, b/c we’ve ended up quarantining together, and bc we’re excited) we’ve been having a lot of sex - 1-2x/day during the workweek, 2-3x/day on weekends. We use a condom every time. I noticed my pH seemed off, so I started lactobacillus daily, but now I have a weird (white, thick) discharge. I’m thinking yeast infection but I haven’t had one since college. Can I take monistat & just see if it clears, or do I need to go to the doctor?

I’ve had a fair amount of success in a couple of direct sales ventures, but I’ve ultimately never risen to the top because I’m not a great teambuilder. I’m trying to figure out how to pivot my career & make something from the skills I learned there, but I’m not really sure what that would look like because I never saw myself getting into sales in the first place. Where should I go from here? What is the pay structure typically like in entry-level sales jobs?

Help me with a situation. I am in ad sales now with $140K OTE, but my ultimate goal is to be in enterprise software sales. My plan was to take the next level up of my current role, with a $220K OTE, to get the large enterprise experience vs the small enterprise types I work with now.

Today, I was offered a $215K OTE MidMarket role at current company but I'm having doubts it's the right move. It feels a step back in business size experience, and doesn't get me any closer to end goal. Thoughts?

I had an interviewer show up late to an interview and then apologize and say that he’s handling an emergency situation. So, I’m relatively flexible and I say that I’m totally fine rescheduling and he says he’d rather just do the interview. He didn’t have his camera on, he’s in the car driving and talking to me. At the end he gives me his objections and I counter them and then he gives me “an assignment”. To write him an email marketing the company. These are all red flags right?

Is it common for Amazon to advertise a job role, only to alter the job listing to something else by the interviewing stage? I applied for a BDM role. A few days before my interview I saw that the job listing had changed to SDR. I asked for an explanation, but they said they were getting over qualified candidates so they had to change the job description and title to represent an entry level position. Nothing against SDR’s but that’s not what I applied for and it was a waste of time.
