IMO a casual check in once every 10 days or so won't hurt. Hell, I had to ping my BCG contact several times to putt things along ("so sorry! you fell off my list. let me get this moving for you."). If the opportunity is fragile enough that they decide they dont want you over a polite check in, you probably don't want the gig anyway.

Advice please - how would you split expenses? My boyfriend of 3 years and I are moving in together for the 1st time. We both wanted to leave our current city. He got a great job offer in a city where rent is more expensive than I would like. He will make $150k+ and I will make $80k+. However, I have much more in savings than he does. I feel silly asking him to cover the living expenses proportionately since we see a future together but also feel a bit resentful that he hasn’t offered to (cont)

Last night I applied for a position in Washington DC at Meta, but soon after realized that I should have sought a referral prior to submission. Is it still possible for someone at the company to refer me even if I already applied? If so, would appreciate any help I could get. But if not, do you think it would be worth it to reapply with a referral? YOE: 3 Thanks!

So on our team call tonight our partner was introducing our overall team (in total ~20 people were on) to new members and then say “and X, she is our great social secretary, but watch out she is quite the disciplinarian. You don’t want to get on her bad side.” Wtf? I had 3 of my co-workers ping me. I think maybe he was trying to make a joke but it didn’t come across that way. He’s done a lot of things in the past that were subtly sexist but this kinda crossed the line for me. What do I even do?
