Just promo’d to Mgr, have a 1-year old, wife is pregnant with #2. Making $150k. Have a strong desire to be home, but I’m on a great trajectory and know sacrifices need to be made to succeed. (Cont.)
Planning to travel international with spouse and lap infant soon. We only have enough points to book 1 business, the other has to fly economy. Will I be able to book infant fare (10% cost) in economy and have the infant sit with me in business later? Asking because 10% economy fare vs 10% business fare difference is huge. Airlines is Singapore Airlines.
Need advice/encouragement on “cold Facebook messaging” a potential (girl) friend that just moved into my city. We know each other from high school, and had a few mutual friends but that’s over 10 years ago and I’m not in touch with those mutuals anymore. Is it creepy if I reach out on fb messenger and propose a coffee/ice cream? If not, how should I word it?
In every setting (work, friends, school), I lean towards the less powerful and less physical attractive because they are not a threat to me. For example, I'm a SM who recently switch jobs. I can't bring myself to connect with SM and higher. I talk to seniors and below more.
Am I the only one? I'm honestly upset about myself because I'm losing out on a lot of opportunities for not getting myself connected to those who can help in my career.
I’m 26 and recently switched jobs. Should I invest in a Roth 401k or traditional 401k? For background I already have 56k in my traditional 401k from last employer and 12k in a Roth IRA. (Cont.)
We're trying the traffic booster feature on zip recruiter, it was like 5 for $108 each. We have jobs in cities that will post for like 10 days and get 1 view 0 applies. So we're trying it out. Has anyone used it before?
I have a student who loses it whenever asked to do anything. He will kick and hit walls. He will shout and cuss at adults. He will lunge at me and others. He is allowed to do this by his SPED teacher. It is getting scary for me because he is so unpredictable. I ask for help but the department doesn’t want to do anything different. What can I do? I’m so over fearing.
TBWA/WH? Thoughts good or bad?
I am 33 years old immigrant living in the USA. I am not a resident and I don’t have any intention to become one. Does it still make sense for me to join a 401k and then eventually drop out of it in 2/3 years?
Need a suggestion.
