there’s a lot of opps out there!

Make a list. Organize your list.

Recruiting agencies help a ton as long as you’re actively speaking with twenty and being as cordial as possible. Everyone is super overwhelmed right now, especially recruiters, so being understanding and patient I’ve found has gone a long way for me to ride freelance out while the world is spinning.

Just found out that the guy I’ve been exclusively dating for a year has been seeing someone else. We are both in our 30s & things seemed to be going so well. He says he is confused, is scared of commitment & doesn’t know what he wants. I can’t focus on anything right now, feel nauseous & keep comparing myself to the other woman, wondering what I could’ve done differently or how I don’t measure up. Please provide encouraging words. I feel like my life is crashing down.

Hi All, Need your suggestion. Recently 2 months back I joined fortune 100 product company. But looks like not much opportunities to learn new things. Shall I switch now?

I have an offer from a top Indian QSR company for their analytics team. The HR refuses to disclose information such as the insurance coverage saying that all this would be covered in the orientation. Seems like they are not too aware of the processes themselves.

Should I be concerned? It's a very well known Fortune 500 company.

Hey y’all, I wanted to ask in this bowl as well!
For those that are in big tech or not and have to RTO, may I ask the reason why they need you in office? Second, is it worth interviewing with these companies? I’m asking because I live in Houston and I prefer remote. Microsoft has reached out to me for an interview as well as Airbnb. I currently work remotely at a start up and enjoy it. But, I ask is it worth exploring these opportunities?

Hey gang, is it possible to negotiate for a higher pay with recruiter after you passed all the interviews, if you realize you proposed a number lower than average at the initial screening? Sorry for asking this bc my research didn't take that long, and I gradually realized I deserve a higher salary than I expected.


Anyone have a good setup for switching between screens on two machines? I have a MBP for work, and a Mac Mini for my personal/side gigs.

Do you have advice on how to interview better with Amazon?

My résumé and portfolio are great, and I’ve been asked to interview with Amazon for 4 different teams now. However, it seems like I’m not making it past the first 1:1 interview. 3 out of 4 have resulted in not the right fit for reasons unknown; they don’t provide any feedback either. I have been invited for a new interview today with another team, and I am hoping 4th time is the charm. Any tips on how to do better next time?


When you apply for a job on company career website, and get a request for a screening call, can I assume that the recruiter had already checked out my portfolio and thought my work is sufficient to push to the next step? Or do they just look at the resume and leave the portfolio screen to the design team?


Advice for Working In-House or Freelance?

I’m a motion designer working in-house for over a year now. I have no bad blood here but I’m looking to move soon and remote is not allowed. I’ve been applying for other in-house positions and agencies, have gotten pretty close in a few interviews, but nothing as of yet. I know working in a creative field with remote work is highly competitive, but want to see if this is a sign to go freelance full time? Has anyone experienced this before?
