I am an elementary school teacher. My oldest son is feeling drawn to ECE. He loves children, loves to help in vacation bible school, wants to work directly with people to help them. Thoughts?

He has an associates in social and behavioral sciences and a certificate in graphic design. He is trying to decide where to go from here! He really enjoyed his one ECE class. How would the job be for a man? How bad is the pay? Other career suggestions?

Burnout is because you did something consistently for an extended period. You can do quick fixes like go on vacation, get some sleep, exercise more. But they may only help temporarily, depending on your level of Burnout.

Try adjusting your approach to work / life to a more sustainable, and ideally, enjoyable balance.

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?

What companies offer amazing employee benefits? I just started looking for a remote recruiter role. I have tried applying for companies like Google, Meta, Microsoft, but have not had any luck. I am wondering if there are any smaller companies that I may not know about, have great benefits and less competitive to get into. For example, I know UK companies have great PTO benefits, and I know of some companies that pay 100% of their employees benefits. TIA

Got an offer from another big4 on Thurs. Scheduled a call with MD on Fri bcoz the next Mon was my planned PTO. MD had an idea what it was about but didn’t wanna join. Sent text msg so that we could talk on the phone(since this is the MD’s preferred way of communication) No response. I came back from PTO the next Thurs and pinged the MD right away to talk and was ghosted. turned in my notice on Friday. MD then scheduled a call with me on my last day with the firm. Thoughts on this MD’s behavior?

Is it selfish that I'm considering a personal vacation over seeing family for the holidays? My parents and siblings are all healthy and happy and I saw them at Thanksgiving, and this is my first single Christmas. I'd really rather book a flight to somewhere warm from Christmas Eve-New Years and spend the holiday on a beach with a book. Should I just suck it up and take a vacay in the spring?

I may be reading too much into this so tell me if you think so. I'm the only woman on a product management team for a smallish company.

Flowers, lights, etc. It's not a big deal, but I am a little miffed that it was delegated to me since I am the only woman on the team. I'm not an assistant!

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
