Dealing with an issue while trying to teach a newly hired employee. I am a consultant and my current project management hired someone to takeover long-term for me, and I must train them, however there have been many issues. This individual doesn't know basic data concepts (left join, right join, vlookup, etc.) and there is only so much I should be required to teach. I do not want to tutor this person on how to use Excel or manipulate data.

Howdy, I just received and offer from Boeing for an Electrical Systems Engineer 2 position. Location is Oklahoma City.

I countered with a request for 95k and some extra PTO days. Is this reasonable? Thoughts?

My boss fired me because i ask for clarification on my employment right.

I got hired not long ago. I realise some of the employee benefits i was told (missing in the contract) contradict with what’s stated on the law. So i email the boss about it and ask for clarification. Immediately after the email i was fired.

Just want to make sure people know this and don’t apply jobs in this shady company- it is called UniQ Biotech, in Delta, BC, Canada

Hi fishes,
I was unfortunate in ongoing layoff. I also got impacted. I was a part of DLTLabs Pvt. Ltd. for 1 year. It was good journey where I learnt a lot. I changed from learner to position where I am helping other and have some dependencies. I started from small debugging to take ownership of a full module.
It is difficult time for me and for who got layoff but I am excited for new opportunity.
I am looking for new job role of Node.js developer. I would appreciate your help.
Thank you
