Make sure your landlord is bringing in an actual exterminator, not just a general handyman. I had the same problem until an actual exterminator came in, located additional holes behind our dishwasher, and put poison in the walls.

like

Did they put anything in the walls? I say this only because our landlord brought in some one he claimed was an exterminator and we found later that he wasn’t really an exterminator because the landlord didn’t want to spend the money.

I have the solution for you : get a cat. we have cats and the problem was solved.

I recently started to date again and I’m currently dating someone who’s finishing up his masters in data science. I do some data analytics in my role (well my title for my client says data analytics consultant) but I work in strategy. He keeps asking me complex data science/data analytics questions (even tho he knows I don’t have a background in it) and jokes about if I even know what I’m doing at work. Am I taking this too seriously or is he always trying to put me down?

Recently received an offer (out of the blue) midway through an interview process, and was a bit in shock - was told there would be a technical and additional steps.

Got a call from the hiring manager saying they were concerned about my “lack of enthusiasm” and that I shouldn’t share too much info with recruiters. How do I proceed?
