What is everyone's thoughts on SS? I did CPE this past week and the topic was SS and it got me thinking. You get the most bang for your buck if you delay taking it as long as possible but I wondered if I barista FIRE at 57 would 10 years of barista wages affect my monthly benefit?

FWIW I am 33 right now so I try not to get too attached to the idea of SS because so much can change in 25 years


I love my SO and am very happy with our relationship. But sometimes I miss having a big group of friends to do things with and I feel like I dont sometimes because I'm usually with my SO.


Would like advice. Role A will be completing final rounds on Thursday and know the results on Friday. Role B completed “final rounds” last Tuesday and said they would lmk by this Monday at the latest. Sent an email yesterday morning to follow up and no response. Should I wait since I’m in process for B or email/call recruiter? Have another offer (C) on the table exploding Friday, but not planning to take it regardless.

Does anyone else feel like mental health is something everyone is preaching but no one is acknowledging how difficult it is to actually address? (Not meant to be a complaint - curious if others agree)


Up until these last two years I’ve been very career & goal focused. But now I look back on all the efforts put into 7 years of school, promotions, long work hours, planning & timelines revolving around work, networking …and I’m just tired. I don’t care any more. I just want to stop working and nap and have a job that lets me play with dogs. Dear universe, please let me win the lottery lol


I got interviewed for mindtree and got the selection mail already also offer is in progress. Now I got the following mail : Your application for the job TL INTG & PROC AUTO, Hyderabad at Mindtree is found to be more aligned for the post of SE INTG & PROC AUTO, Hyderabad. What does it mean? Is that position closed , I am worried. HR is busy and is not picking up calls right now. Mindtree


I'm mid-interview process at a large tech company (three rounds including writing exercise completed but haven't got to final round yet). Haven't heard anything in a while, when is too soon to check in and when is so long that i assume it's a silent pass?


Can anyone recommend a good tenant lawyer? My previous landlord has been withholding my security deposit and evading all my attempts to collect. I’m at at the end of my patience with him.


Joke of the year - someone at work told me that dogs are racial🤣😆


I would choose death over permanent suffering
E.g, facing life in jail, I’d choose the death penalty.

Hi everyone!

I've been offered a job at
Publicis Sapient as a front-end developer (React Js).
What kind of work culture, work load and tech stack exposure should I be expecting?
I'm having 1 year experience.

I've also got offers from IndiaMART InterMESH Limited, Amdocs, Verizon and Collegedunia.

All for the role of front-end web developer.

I'm very confused between all of them.

Is there any way to make the most of the current situation by investing in real estate or buying an investment property?


Can we take a moment to discuss Brad Jenkins / Brad Taylor / Tim Curtis’s endgame? The same person masquerades as three different people, collects resumes, and then ghosts. Can we can we get this person de-platformed from LinkedIn? He’s unethical at best and based on experience he’s likely selling resumes without consent. Thoughts?


Hey guys,

I just accepted a offer at Northern Trust, wanted to know whether we they can re-negotiate or no?
Have a better offer somewhere else
