A partner called me today and said that my career coach (boss) got a reference request from another job for me. She said they were surprised that I wanted to leave so early. I’ve been with this public accounting firm for 7 months, yes it’s short but I don’t like the culture, and I don’t think public accounting is for me. She kept saying how disappointed she’d be if I left and that I haven’t given it a chance. She wants a follow up call tmrrw for my answer. No idea what to do, please help

Embarrassing thing you’ve done at work and got away with? One time WFH, I fell asleep and woke up 20 minutes into a 30 minute call. Didn’t join because I felt it was too late. No one ever mentioned it
How to lose your job like a pro: 1. Set my LinkedIn profile to “Open to Work”. (To get contacted by recruiters) 2. LinkedIn automatically generated a public post for me to inform everybody (without my knowledge) 3. my manager just liked the post. 4. Now I have an awkward meeting to attend Monday morning AMA 🤦♂️
This is a new one for me...
Because of seating I end up next to a partner once or twice a week, this chick probably gets paid (at least) $400k a year for doing nothing, maybe dials into a call and BS’s We’re doing it wrong fam..
My analyst is late nearly every day we work in person (3 days pw). Blames traffic or dials in to morning meetings. They started during covid so I just don’t think that they understand part of having a job is that you leave sufficiently early for work to control those things. For reference they don’t live particularly far from office (30-40 min commute). How do I land this message without sounding like a boomer who doesn’t recognise the benefits of hybrid..
Is there a way to resign without working the 2 weeks while not burning bridges? I have been having a hard time with the people on this project, never experienced that with previous projects.
Does making 200k vs 150k make a significant change in your lifestyle. If so, please share.
I'm 32 years old, and I seem to have 0 career ambition. Is it wrong? All of my MBA classmates are fighting for their career, but I'm just doing bare minimum. Literally only working for 4 hours a day (a full time job though). Spending rest of time writing, making bracelet, learning new language and random stuff for fun. I question myself whether this lifestyle is wrong TBH...
Is it wrong or weird to want to find a easier job and settle down in a small city? I think I might be happier to do a 9-5 job, cook for myself and play some sports every day. The desire for success has shrunk significantly since I started working a year ago. Have you experienced similar emotions?
Made my first big, client-facing mistake today. Almost made it a year without one, but alas. Embarrassed and nervous about fallout, especially in the time of layoffs. Say a little prayer for me.
