How did everyone ask for recommendations? Want to ask my engagement partner but nervous that he will respond negatively since it’ll indicate that I’m looking to leave in a year

Ask someone who genuinely knows you and wants you to succeed. This person you referenced doesn't want that if they're upset you're leaving in a year.

These were people I already talked to about the MBA journey who were super supportive. Asked them over a call

Bring the idea of an MBA and eventually bring up your interest in pursuing an MBA in another conversation. You have to warm them up.

I asked to a peer of my director, but yesterday organization has changed and now he is my boss :/

I have a good relationship with my boss but I find he doesn't take the time to develop me. I ofcourse ask for more all the time but I find we make a plan but it never falls through. We have a standing Monday morning meeting where we go through our week and plan. He's cancelled the last three meetings. We don't even have a standing 1:1 in the calendar. As mentioned before I have a good relationship with him but perhaps not a good working relationship

And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

I have a problem, I over explain myself and when I do it with my women colleagues I think they get the impression that I'm mansplaining to them. I started the habit because I ran into an issue where a lot of people often weren't sure what I was talking about and I'm trying to be nice and explain it up front so things are absolutely clear. Is there a way to do this where I don't run the risk of offending my colleagues? I certainly don't mean to imply incompetence.

I’ve been struggling with a partner who is very hard to reach when there are items that need their sign-off asap. I have to send multiple follow-up emails and calls to get a response. Perhaps they expect me to handle things more independently, but I am a recent lateral (3rd year) and don’t want the partner to blame me for not checking with them first. Ideally, I want to take on less work from them (central staffing) and do more for other partners. Any advice/how would you handle this situation?

What would you do if your manager consistently over the course of months no-showed scheduled individual weekly touchbase meetings? I love my company, but I'm started to get really frustrated.

I was working at a Hotel one night & I saw a man appearing on two different floors, then in the stairwell. The man was in his 70’s or 80’s. He was wearing nothing but tidy whiteys. When he got to the front desk I asked “is everything alright? Are you okay?” (Assuming he may be senile),He wasn’t senile, he went swimming & wanted to make me uncomfortable and started to flirt while in his sopping wet see through tidy whiteys- and of course I had to clean up the water he tracked through the lobby.
