Is it unrealistic to think I can get a job at a different school if I am in my 50's? My school is no longer a good fit. I simply can't believe that I have 12 more years of teaching left and I haven't been able to attain a new job. Experts have looked over my resume. I know now ageism is alive and well. And you can't prove it that's why they are picking 20 somethings with 25 years less experience.

Applied and got an employee referral for a role at a startup about a week ago. Haven’t heard anything from recruiters. Should I follow up? If so, with who?
Should diversity really out-weight experience and education in the hiring process? Thoughts?
Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.

Admittedly a men’s fashion question, but looking for men’s tech/fintech fashion advice for my dad. His old-school insurance company was acquired by a more techy company, and he is trying to figure out what to wear. Any advice? I already sent him the midtown uniform Instagram page as some jokes/inspiration but that seems more finance and less tech. Thanks!
Consultants — okay to buy an Alpha 3 TUMI for my first gig at a big 4? Don’t want to look too douchy by showing up with a TUMI when my partner may be hanging out w a Samsonite! Thoughts?
I have been getting emails and LinkedIn messages from amazon and Google recuriters almost monthly about SDE jobs in Cloud. How can I get them to stop and ask for another role like Solutions Architect or TPM? I was a cloud infra engineer before at an old firm but it wasn't a coding heavy role, and I am not a CS major Whenever I reply back that while I am very interested in the company I don't believe I have the right skills for an engineering/coding heavy role, I get ghosted by them

Is it true a lot of people in MBB want to exit for FAANG or other big tech? If so, is MBB not worth going to if I have an exit opportunity for big tech?
I feel like I’m hitting a glass ceiling of sorts when it comes to representing clients at important events (ie, mediation, hearing, etc.). I’ll handle everything up until that point, but then I get the sense that the client wants the partner to step in and handle the big event. These same partners have told me they think I can handle it and would like for me to, but we ultimately have to meet the client’s expectations.
Have you ever had a company regret you because your requested salary was too high? Or have they always at least made you a counter offer?
Any suggestions on how to find referral for FAANG/MBB? Tried message recruiter on LinkedIn not much reply:(
