For those who went about gaining a professional mentor outside of their job, how did you do it? I would love to have a mentor that’s higher than me by more than one position and outside of my company (pretty much what I have now). I feel like I’m at the point of needing higher level perspective and guidance.

Hello Guys,

My L1 interview was done yesterday, it went well. Approximately how many days it takes to revert by HR for next round or feedback?

Curious to know how much your student loans were when you graduated from your program, how much you’ve paid off so far, and your age. If you have any varying factors too, like kids, income range, etc. Just trying to see if I’m on track or slacking in life. I am 34 yo, i graduated with 95k in student loans, i currently have 85k left and i make 85k in come. I’m also a single mom with two kids. Just praying for 100% student loans forgiveness. Wishful thinking???
