Hello,
I'm currently a community health navigator, and started with resources to find housing program resources beyond section 8.

What would be the best way to further my career about public health and housing systems?

Would it be better to get certifications/specializations through Coursera/edx/udemy? Or try for assistant jobs? Or just go back to a college and do 6 credits a semester until I'm able to graduate?

Hi fishes! Nagarro declined the counter offer letter ₹33,00,000 + shares worth 4.5LPA

I've 6+ yrs experience (mobile dev.)

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.

I’ve been trying to figure out dosage and medication over the past month and wanted some insight from people who may have more experience with diff doses. I started with 5mg Adderall for 2 weeks but it stopped being effective around the 4-5th day. I switched to 10 mg for a week and it was good but a bit up and down, so switched to Vyvanse 30 mg for a week, which was too strong. I’m now on 15 mg Adderall, but it feels like I can’t concentrate and I’m scattered. Question in comments:

I feel like my job is in danger at this point because of how often partners need to follow up with me, especially recently.

I actually really like my firm and the work, but my motivation has never been lower and I’ve been here less than a year. Thought it could be my meds, so I just switched from adderall to concerta hoping it would make a difference, but it hasn’t. Help please
