It was fairly easy for me to at least get a first call with recruiters. I applied mainly on LinkedIn and through referrals. Background: 4 YOE in Management Consulting recently switched to Product Management

This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids

A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn about an open remote EA role at his company. Fast forward, the recruiter tells me that leadership now wanted an EA that was in-person. I’m disappointed bc I wasn’t even looking for a new role when he reached out and was excited about the possible new opportunity. Has anyone successfully countered a company’s decision with reasons why a remote EA works just as well as an in-person one?

I got a job offer at Apple and I’m so conflicted. I nor my boyfriend are just thrilled to live in California, but this opportunity is incredible.

Any advice? I am feeling like I’m picking between my career and relationship. It sucks. For context, we’ve been together 2 years and live together.

Help! I got offered a starting salary of $140K, +15% bonus, + like 500 shares equity, for an in-house commercial contracts attorney role. I’ve been told by other attorneys there that most weeks are 50-60 hour weeks (much less than ideal as I have three very young children and am hoping to be more available to them). I have 10 years experience in house, 5+ years in commercial contracts. I think I should go back with at least $150k, but should I go even higher? Should I ask for a signing bonus?

Do you honestly believe the 10-40% defi interest rates were risk free. It’s all paid by stablecoin printing backed by the assumption that crypto prices would keep appreciating
