Dating boyfriend for about 1.5 years now. Last night I was super sad because for the entire day he didn’t care to text / call until 9pm at night for 10 min. He Usually calls me in the late afternoon. He’a currently prepping for interviews and only wants to see me once a week as a result….recently checked his insta because I missed him and that became a night of me looking up the girls he followed because I accidentally found 1 that was 5 yrs younger with a provocative photo:( i feel sad.

Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
Due to the scarcity of projects, I was staffed into a project I despise, notorious in the office for being ‘toxic’. It’s a very tech/programming role (I’m in MC, nothing to do with my area), manager is high strung and lashes out often, sometimes blaming things on me (or others) which isn’t my fault. It’s really taking it’s toll on my mental health, I’m unfulfilled, not learning and skills I value, and on edge all the time. What is the best way to go?
