Take your pick of two situations, both of which happened at the same time. 1. Recruited with Deloitte. Initial phone screen happened about a week after referral. Over the following two weeks, I met with 3 PPMDs; first interview was assessing my skill sets, second interview was gauging my interests, and third was pitching me on career path. Verbal offer came a week later. When I expressed reservation, they made one of the PPMDs available to answer all of my questions by phone. Formal offer came, then negotiation, and then a final offer. PPMD called to see if there were any lingering questions, to tell me about my first project, and express on behalf of the team the excitement to bring me in. 2. Recruited with a different company; first contact was after getting the D verbal offer. I asked for what I thought was crazy - $200k base and a 10 calendar day process. Company delivered on both fronts. I accepted the D offer because a) I value the steady stream of revenue over what I perceived as unrealistic growth expectations at the other place, and b) the whole process at D was positive. Felt like I was valued from first conversation through to offer acceptance and now into onboarding. I know they get a lot of ridicule on this app, but the pre hire process is top notch compared to my previous experiences.

Should add - a single point of contact from HR, access to leadership during recruitment for follow up, strong responsiveness throughout, and clear communication all made the process lovely.

Time to declutter! Getting rid of stuff you don't need is proven to help reduce anxiety. Where do you start? Grab a box or trash sack and designate one for donation and one for trash. Do this at the beginning of the week and commit to filling both up by the end of the week. Post a before and after pick. This challenge is worth 5 points total.

Friday was complicated. So, I am going to break it down. Nasdaq 100 Futures (NQ) traded to the 9837 level, 32.75 points short of it's 50% HWB short. It then proceeded to sell off like nobody's business to 9846.50, 31.5 points higher than the projected objective for the HWB short. So, if you followed me on the channel, we were positioned for a nice rally at the end of the day. Markets have no memory on Friday afternoon. So, I think we are going up eventually and rally hard.

Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park. I was told to steer away from Five Points, but I couldn't find much about Park Hill online. Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!
