Why do you consider it to be late? You have to start somewhere.. try to apply and just go for it. Remember that most positions have training and a period of trial. You should be fine. Hope it helps get you started. Best wishes!

I joined a new team and have noticed something off with my Director over the last months (slurring speech, no show to calls or even full days of work). I finally asked a colleague about it today because I’m concerned about my Director. She confirmed that she’s noticed the same over the last few years, but no one ever says anything. In confidence she told me she can often smell alcohol. How can I help? I feel helpless. I’ve already lost someone to addiction and I can’t ignore this. Any advice?

Advice needed:

I am working on a 3y local contract in the US since 2.5y - long-story, but wife never made it over and now wants me to come home.

I am responsible for a major strategic product and CEO really wants to keep me (incl promotion). I can transfer back, but wouldn’t be guaranteed a job at same level. I expect better opportunities, if my CEO would push for me, but don’t know how to ask him, given that he has a conflicting interest.

How would you ask? Or just apply for jobs at home?
