Feeling very stuck in career at the moment, leadership won’t let me leave the project I’ve been on for 2 years and interviews have lead to a lot of dead ends. I have so much motivation to learn and with the right guidance I’d flourish...any words of wisdom to share? Or if your team is hiring? I hate the feeling of burnout/complacency that is creeping in and want to feel excited about work!

I have been there! A couple times actually... As you probably already know the best answer is for you to leave. In all honesty that is much easier said than done and then you aren't really guaranteed satisfaction once you find a new position. It has always taken me between six months and a year and multiple interviews to find a new role. I realize it's a tough environment right now, so hang in there! And in the meantime try to find something else you can be passionate about. Maybe join some online courses?

Thank you for this! That’s definitely part of my issue, is that I’m on the hunt for the perfect role, so I’ve turned down offers in the past that don’t match up 100%...but I think I’ve been cracked and I’m at the point that giving almost anything else a try is better than staying where I’m at. Definitely going to look into online courses to try to make myself more marketable

I am paid for referrals, but I don't need the money so no hard sells😋 hoping to help our laid off accounting people. Admins feel free to delete it not appropriate.

SWEs at Facebook/Google. I'd love to hear your thoughts on privacy while working at a place some define as a "surveillance company". I'm an advocate for privacy and think companies like Facebook and Google need regulation, while we need laws supporting personal data and metadata being owned by the people generating it - not companies. I know there are benefits to these companies too. Let's keep the conversation real. I'm actually interested in your view on this.
