Salam everyone, wanted to ask if anyone here is in a relationship with someone close to their age and how they’re navigating it for ex a guy being 22 and the girl being 24. I’ve been advised to find someone 3-4 yrs younger than me because that would make things smoother and there would be less fighting. What are your thoughts? Also I’m Arab and will most likely be marrying an Arab girl if that changes anything.

How much time it takes for Amdocs HR to release the technical round results in Amdocs Mega Recruitment drive?
I'm 32 years old and have a AMH level of 1.2 which is very low for my age. Did a vaginal ultrasound and they only found one follicle on each ovary. I have started IVF but my chances are so slim this will work now. I find out in about 7 days if we go ahead and try and collect anything from me... who would of thought at age 32 this could be happening. I'll be starting menopause in the next year or two...
Is anyone else in the same situation as me? Any success stories of IVF working for you.
Had my annual review earlier today and I’m not happy with the raise and bonus offered. Aside from the managing partner, there were several other non-equity partners in the room and I didn’t feel comfortable negotiating in front of everyone. I’d rather speak to the managing partner alone as he’s the only one who has the ability to make decisions. I’ll have to wait until Monday to do it in-person but wondering if I should set up a call between now and Monday to discuss? Would Monday be too late?

I accepted a new job back in the summer of 2020 that required relocation for the office opening in Jan 2021. Office is still closed and I haven’t moved. Now we are rolling out a new plan that you just need to be near an office but only go in a few times a year for specific things. There is an office close that wouldn’t require me to move and I’d prefer to work there given the situation but HR is still insisting I’ll eventually need to move. This is so silly 🙃

Please provide me your thoughts about error messages. Do you think the average user knows what 404, 401, 501 errors mean? Do you think they care? Would you just explain the problem and solution (my preference)? Or would you also educate them about the code?

I think I may have finally had it.
A couple of decades in this field and now I want to just walk away. The grind in tech is soul-destroying, and the vast majority of the time, coworkers outside of UX have no idea what it is, what it’s for, and how it’s applied. I’m at my wits end and the constant problem is a kind of “willful misunderstanding” of our process and value.
After wasting too many years on design immature companies, It’s senselessly depressing. I’ve given away too much of myself.
Looking for some advice on a career change. I work in a technical role and have well-developed soft skills. I want to transition to UX (w/ focus on accessibility). There are a lot of UX educational programs out there, some very new, e.g. Dribbble, and costs are all over the place - General Assembly is $15k (and full-time), CareerFoundry almost $8k, and then many others at a fraction of the price. Reviews also vary wildly. Are these more expensive programs worth the huge increase in cost?
Open to any UXR roles. Preferably remote/hybrid . Recently laid off due to corporate restructure. 3-4 YOE.
