I wore a sundress last year and felt wildly inappropriate wearing that to a work event even though everyone else was doing the same.

I'm wearing shorts, golf shirt and a baseball cap tomorrow and using suntan lotion. I didn't one year, more of it was outdoors than expected and I got badly sunburnt. Not again. And I'm not wearing long pants and a dress shirt and winding up a sweaty mess either.

Hoping to get some input on exit paths from tax.

I want to tell my supervisor that I'm not happy with my responsibilities anymore.

I rarely have support underneath me, so I pretty much have just taken on a few new tasks with each "promotion." Any advice on how to have this discussion? I'm not confident having these discussions either, so advice for being confident is helpful, too!

Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
