I applied for a job a week ago, and still haven’t heard back yet. However, someone from the company now just offered to refer me. How do I go about this? Do I resubmit the app and rescind the old one or do I just let HR know about the referral or something else?

I’d normally go with the latter. Maybe see if your contact can update or have HR update your application internally.

Giving notice soon for in-house role, and thinking about giving more than 2 weeks. Is this dumb? I'm getting ramped up on work on very small teams, and things are being planned in advance for clients with my schedule in mind, but I know I won't be here for that. The split will be an amicable one, and I have no reason to think they would fire me on the spot (big "culture" emphasis here), although of course that's a concern. Anyone navigated this before and have any insight?

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression.

But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?

Our school has a very diverse population, but our district and building don’t embrace it very well, so I decided to start in my own classroom.

It also sparks conversation about where the different flags are from and shows students just how diverse we all are. So far the kids love it and we’ve had some great conversations.
