Happy Holidays to all! (Aren’t we glad that 2020 is almost over?) Hopefully you are all on a well deserved break by now. Did you do anything holiday CTE related with your scholars?

I applied & interviewed at a small firm in JUNE. I thought it went well & the owner & I knew each other from previous cases we handled. They ghosted me so I moved on. Mid November comes & I get a call from the paralegal “are you still looking for a job?” I thought that ship sailed but let’s see what they offer. It’s the holidays & I’ve got time off already scheduled. They’ve made a tempting offer but are not flexible on the time off & seem desperate. Like they want someone to put out fires.

How is your company handling PTO/vacation specifically if it’s a “use it or lose it” policy? Are you still requiring employees to use it in 2020, or will there be leniency to move it to next year?

I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice

I've got an interview for a contract that would give me a 60% bump in pay
My current manager asked what they were offering and if there was anything he could do to make things better where I currently am. There is no way they can match the offer, but I'm a little worried about leaving a permanent full time with benefits and vacation time. What's my best move? Ask for 20% and be happy with 10%? Aim higher?

For the record I just barely make living wage as is so it's not going to be massive jumps

Hi all. Solo parent here and thinking about the holidays. Kiddo & I feel kinda isolated, and I was thinking about hosting a holiday gathering with some families we know. Issue: we have a smallish house with a dining table that will seat 6 and a couple of barstools. House is setup such that living and dining are downstairs; second living room and all bedrooms up. Don't want to do a formal sit down bc I don't feel like we know ppl that well. Thoughts? Recs for a service that can help me "host"?
