I am getting into Real Estate, taking my licensing exam next week.

What are companies/ brokerage firms taking as their split of commission? I have heard 50/50, 60/40, 70/30. They are all over the place.

And Caps. What are the caps most companies have?

Think it’s usually around 10-20, anything higher is rough but you have to shop around

I started out 50-50, I didn't interview brokers, So I didn't know there's better than 50-50.

Today, my entire class stated they do not feel comfortable working with the school's instructional coach. How can I, as a teacher, encourage them to open up and receive helpful strategies and help with their homework if they are not comfortable? Any suggestions? I don't have time to assist everyone.

I was at a friend’s. Her and her neighbors are all moms and get together for dinner while the kids play. A father showed up to drop off kid while the mom was busy elsewhere, instead of going about his plans he stayed with us. I felt so much sexual tension with him there its so weird. I was attracted to something about him and i know i had his attention. I could barely look him in the eyes when he would make conversation. I wanted to… you know what. SO WEIRD. Hes not even a 10! Im so confused.


Has anyone else had to deal with a pay raise push back due to covid? My partner and I were promoted in the sense of a title change in the fall, and given a partial raise mid-spring and told the rest will come when the agency is more settled... But in that time they've hired 15+ more creatives (mostly intermediate or senior). We've been hesitant to try move because we love our work and team, have a good work/life balance, and know we're secure here during covid.

PS We're in Toronto!


Hi Everyone,

I gave interview in ericsson. 2 Technical round and 1 managerial round in September.
I cleared all rounds.
After 20 days (after so many reminders by me) they asked for the document to submit so that they proceed.

Now it's November I haven't received offer letter and no updates from HR and the HR is not picking up my call.

Anyone facing same? Is this normal in Ericsson?

My gf (who lives with me) quit her job due to mental health issues a couple of months back.
I’ve been super supportive throughout. She’s a winner and a super talented person but she is lacking confidence as she messed up a couple of interviews. She has lost confidence to an extent that she’s blocking me out and isn’t willing to accept any help.
I’m starting to stress out (major) as this is affecting our relationship badly.

PS: She’s looking for Talent Engagement, customer success roles.
