Has anyone researched the company on LinkedIn & reached out to HR re: their desired job posting? If so, what was the outcome? Is this a recommended way to make contact/take initiative?

I haven't but I think this is a great idea. Proactive, and smart to reach out to HR with information you already have directly. Go for it.

Yup, good way to get a company. Give Glassdoor a try too, I find their reviews helpful.

What is the most amount of times you have Applied to one specific company? It could be different job titles and different states but how many times have you applied to the same company? Sodexo , levy, compass group, Hyatt Hilton Marriott have Applied to all those 30 or 40 times over the past three years. Talk about insanity. I stopped applying six months ago I’m no longer wasting my time with people like this!

I want to take a sabbatical.

Hi Fish, today I was presented an opportunity to work as the primary point of contact for a public company doing commercial transactional work (mostly spillover and work that their in-house team may not want). It would represent 25% of my monthly billables. Is this what people refer to as a secondment? Is this arrangement desirable? Does it increase my marketability to lateral to a larger firm? Currently, at a smaller firm.

I feel that former employer might have slandered my reputation. Almost a year ago, I had accepted a physical therapist position with the VA and all was going well until I get a call from their HR department saying that they had to rescind the offer due to something that came up in my background. Never been arrested or have any legal complaints filed against me. VA said I’d have to file a FOIA request. Which meant all the info was blacked out when I got the info I requested. What do I do?????

My spouse and I recently adopted an older shelter dog (Carlotta). Some of the other MDs at my hospital were putting together a "Dr. and Dog" social event, so I took Carlotta.

I'm sorry I didn't pay thousands for a purebred or socially-acceptable mutt. Is this level of snobbery typical in dog circles??
