After 3 months of applying I some how got an interview with a well known growing tech start up! Interviewed and got an offer this week. Unfortunately the offer is lower than my current comp with 1 yoe but it gets me out of tech consulting/compliance and into a pretty interesting product facing role! A bit sad about a lower comp but also pretty pumped about pivoting career paths so early and getting to work in product! Hope this “success” helps motivate some of y’all who might feel down!
I work at an elementary school where the new principal set up two art classes attending art together. I am the art teacher and I have a para professional. We start with the 2 classes, grade 1-4 in one room, one class sits on the floor, so I can teach and give instructions. Then my para takes one class to the stage where they have tables set up to do their art. What do you think about the legality of this? Can a para run a class alone?

Should one add their personal technology that are currently used for remote work on their resume? Seems most companies will provide the hardware and software needed. However, it’s unclear if the employer will provide this through Teamviewer/VPN connection or will send an actual computer. Along with this, would it be pertinent to add your internet capability (speed, fios/cable/satellite/dsl)?

I had a offer letter from a firm which has 2.5 hours commute one side. During the interviews I bought this point and the partner agreed to let me come in the office once in 2 weeks and rest I can work remotely. Now I have received the offer letter and nothing of working remotely is mentioned in it. Is it implied by the interviews or should I email HR to confirm (just don’t want to sound demanding). Also someone in the interview mentioned working remotely won’t help in promotion. Can i ask this?
