Graduating Ph.D. program 2021, received offer from tiny boutique for 140TC+random small boutique benefits. Would be better commute, non metro area closer to home. Waiting to hear back from well known life science boutique (think ZS, Clearview, Putnam). Offer would be for NYC office, would likely relocate. If offer is given, a) at what $ is this worth and b) is brand everything for first firm out of school? Also would the life science boutiques reasonably pay more than that?

I went to my first online networking event today. It was incredibly nerve wrecking. I found myself comparing myself to the other new members and people with similar experience to myself. I have only entry level experience in my field (human resources) and majority of the attendees had much more, executive level experience and a few entry level. How can I handle future networking events if I honestly can’t even answer the questions designed for us to discuss workplace conflict, policy etc when I’m only on the entry level side of it (doing the entry level job) and not the HR side.

Is anyone else having this issue? Since COVID in June, I have had so many unemployment requests that are fraudulent. We report to our state, and I am getting requests for employees that had no change in pay/hours (white collared* workers) that when I ask if they filed the answer is always no. Last week, I had an executive that had a false claim.
