The race thing is something I’ve noticed. There is a small but not negligible group of non-white voters who sort of... gloss over the whole xenophobia aspect of the Republican Party, because they’re conservative otherwise. You see it in fishbowl sometimes. Posts from immigrants who “did it the right way,” and thus have zero empathy for an undocumented immigrant. Posts from people who came from poverty, worked REALLY hard, are now partner or whatever and thus buy hard into the “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” idea. (Note: it is literally impossible to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, that’s the point of the saying) That’s why the “make Puerto Rico a state” debate is so funny to me. The Republicans just see an island full of brown people, so they go “they’ll just be a democrat state, we can’t have that!” But the irony is that if republicans managed to let go of that mentality, I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see a lot of Republican supporters in PR.

Interviewed for a role and after speaking with the manager for it, I’m not that interested anymore solely on the manager alone. How do I message the recruiter (the manager too?) that I’m no longer interested but don’t necessarily want to cut ties with the company in case there are better roles in the future? BTW I’m happy in my current role now, was just curious about the company.

I nailed the technical interview, and now have an interview dedicated to what kind of manager I am tomorrow. I'm really nervous as they will be asking questions over my communication style, talent development, collaboration, facilitating team engagement... any tips on how to approach these? I'm kind of scared to answer truthfully as I am a very laid back manager that is not a micromanager so don't want them to think I'm too casual for this position. I also have done very little hiring.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?
