What do you enjoy doing in your free time? If you have interests like pottery, martial art, sports, involvement in any religious groups, etc. the possibilities are endless. Most cities have meet ups for variety of interests. You just have to make an effort of figuring out when and where and show up. Also if you have friends who might know some local people in your new city, it also helps to get some connections just to start. Good luck OP! Starting at a new city could be hard. You can do it

Ladies, Our women in law - NY meetup group started getting spam messages, so I am setting up a new group. I won’t share the link publicly to avoid the spam. Please send me a DM with your name and number if you would like to be added again! For those who weren’t on it, I had created a group for women in law in New York to meet, network, and just hang out. We had our first successful meet up. Send me a DM if you would like to be added! 😊

Ok, so this is all new!
I am working in my organization for last 8 months. I am working as a Sr. Digital Marketing Analyst. Because of the location I want to change the job. Will start looking for an opportunity in Mumbai or Pune.
Need some guidance. Any help is appreciated.

PS: Also need likes to DM, so please ;)

I am currently working as a L3 HR associate partner and is looking to move into a L4 HR partner role but my manager keeps saying I should shadow someone in order to know whether the L4 role is for me. Does it make sense that they’re asking me to do this or should I just go ahead and apply for these L4 roles? I kinda feel like it’s a strategy to keep me in my current role. I’d appreciate any advice on this issue.
