Looking for some book recommendations (pleasure reading) for winter break. It’s the only time besides the summer where I can read for my own enjoyment! PS: I’ve read all the classics so I’m looking for new stuff :)
Does it mean anything if the guy doesn’t offer to pick you up? He has a car, I don’t. And we are going to a game in his neighborhood. I don’t mind getting my own ride, but he didn’t offer, and I feel no judging please 🤣

I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at:

What salary can I ask in the market now?
New to consulting/project and im having some issues with attention to detail. Team lead noticed this.
A new guy just joined my team and he took his minutes with no errors and lead made sure to explicitly praise him, and took a vague shot at me in an undertone.
The obvious answer is to take better notes, but how do I move forward knowing team lead feels that way ?
I heard wipro started firing people now. They already fired some people and it's from all level.

My daughter is a college student fresh into her career. She previously worked for T-Mobile in sales/customer service. She resigned from this role after 3 years for a better opportunity at a tech start-up. She was with the company for 3 weeks, today they called her and said they could no longer afford her salary and would be letting her go. They are paying her a small severance and allowed her to keep her equipment and office set-up. Does anyone know of any opportunities that are available?
To the consultants out there, what is currently your “dream” exit opportunity?
Currently struggling to find anything that I’m interested in and need some ideas.
Thoughts on receiving hand markups from a mid level as a junior? I assumed hand markups were a relic of the older generation, but it seems to continue. I don’t know why we have to perpetuate receiving illegible comments to documents. Younger lawyers who markup on their tablets: is this actually easier for you or are you doing it to seem more senior? Client is paying extra for me to parse your comments…

I was invited to join this app, but it seems to be super-focused on young creatives. I'm BA - and not young! Is my perception correct? Not seeing too many posts in this bowl.
Given a choice of spending time, money and effort on upskilling oneself at age 30, would you see more value in someone going for an MBA / CFA / accounting qual or learning how to code?
3.5 yrs into sobriety, I’m 25 years old, I have my masters, senior at my firm, passed REG a few weeks ago and have my eyes set on being done with the CPA by Jan 2021 and law school after.
Posting this to say that I had a DWI and a felony drug charge but AA gave me the tools to turn it around. Covid is rampaging our lives but we can still be growing spiritually. Sometimes it’s okay to hand the keys over and let someone else drive. You can and you will get through this.
Thy will be done.
First time posting and I want some advice on negotiating salary. I got offered 69k as a consulting associate in Southern California. What would be a good starting number in the negotiations and what would be a good number to settle for?

First job. First brief. Expected to be rough around the edges yet I’m super hard on myself for not being able to knock my brief out of the park because I’m not one of the “naturally creative” people..

I’m thinking about leaving my comfortable yet *extremely* boring in-house job to try to get back into agency life, but I’m wondering if it’s worth it at this point. Has advertising completely transformed into a joyless, data-driven slog?
At what point can you say it's not so much your inexperience as a new manager (after much patience, coaching and teaching) and it's more of your direct report just being incompetent at the job?
I'm a freelancer looking to work with local Minnesota companies who need help with their website, digital content strategy, or straight up content. HMU with leads/interest. Available February.
It’s widely documented that ethnic minorities are (unfairly) overrepresented in the justice system.
So why do agencies increasingly require background criminal checks before employing people, even for freelance. This seems like yet another barrier to entry. I am a white female and I consider myself lucky that I don’t have anything to worry about when I apply for a job, but I am starting to realize that’s just my privilege.
I made a post yesterday generally asking thoughts on being asked to do a design assessment as part of an interview. I just received the project, and it is a five page brief asking for 2-3 variations of two deliverables as part of a phase one campaign for an existing real product. I am to present, make changes live on the call, then give them my files by midnight the day after.
I feel like this is scamming me of my intellectual time with no guarantee of an offer. Am I justified or being cynical?
I asked this in another bowl but since I work for an agency I thought it would be useful to post here as well: I’m looking for input on how agencies are incentivizing employees to come back to the office? What motivates you to be in-person, if anything?
