Hello Everyone,

I’m new on this platform and still figuring out how it works. A little bit about me , I have a background in Management and a Masters in Educational Leadership. I’m looking to transition into Human Resources. I love all things Human Resources in general. However, my ideal role would be Employee Relations, Onboarding, or Training. I’d appreciate some likes to unlock the DM feature. Best of luck in your search!

In return for your time, I am offering my expertise and coaching. DM me

Currently interviewing for an APM position and have a panel interview coming up. My question is how do you read or identify if your future manager (hiring manager) would support you even after he found out you're gay? Is it unhealthy to "check" for this during interviews?

It probably sounds childish to ask, but I'm in the midwest so it's a hit or miss. What I'm most afraid of is getting hired and then this little detail ruining his willingness and attitude to help me become a great PM.

Started a role in a brand new creative agency. ( brand new in this city but established in an another country)

The employer said I will be paid weekly but now after my first week, he said that they have to skip a week to align with the payroll.

And that he will be paying me from his personal account till they set up everything as a new business in the country.

Is that a legit process or do you reckon I start looking for a new job?

I recently took a job that didn’t provide a pay bump but provided what most people would consider “a name” on the possible path to my dream job. It’s only been a month but I’m realizing that this position may not be providing me with the creativity I need to get me to my dream job as well as the pay. Would it look bad to recruiters for me to start searching again? Any advice on what to do?

Question for UX Researchers: what is a stipend range for an intern or junior researcher that is respectable? It would probably be 5-10 hours every other week: a side, side gig.

A friend and I are building a feature for a website where all $$ is coming out of her pocket. No funding or venture capitalists here. We would like a researcher to help with testing, validating but obv don’t have the big bucks. May last 2/3-6 months.

Any round numbers that are acceptable? Lowest to highest?
