Hi all, was hoping if anyone was willing to refer my wife to their company? She received her bachelors in Education but is looking to make a switch into IT. She’s currently working to get her Sec+ and AWS CCP certifications. I will be more than happy to forward her resume over!
Any assistance would be great! TIA!
Anyone trying to add another CSM to their team? I’m open to new opportunities.
My husband and I are considering a move from New York to Virginia in the next 3 years. I can waive into the VA bar but I’d be interested to know if anyone else has moved states and how difficult it was to reestablish your legal career. I’m currently licensed in New York and California and will have been practicing for 10 years by the time we move. Thanks!
How would you answer the question 'why do you want to leave your current company/role?'?
Should respect be EARNED or GIVEN? 🤔 Chime in.
I come from the European culture of education where teachers are highly respected - very much like in the Japanese society where teachers get the utmost respect, as high as if not even higher than doctors / surgeons.
Students stand up when the teacher enters the classroom, say “hello” when seen in the hallway, etc. Teachers are (or at least are expected to be) GIVEN the respect by students. Seems in the US respect has to be EARNED.

Insane question but going to ask: where do I even start with commercial DD? The experienced Corp Dev team all left the company so no I have to figure out how to acquire this company. We are at best a C+ team. Any tips for how to not F this up?
Anyone who has started up a side hustle whilst working in consulting - is it generally a good idea to let your employer know or will they make your life difficult/try to push you out if they know?
(Context - I need the extra income to have a shot at affording grad school, I work for a small boutique, job contract was ambiguous on the issue. Side hustle is selling stuff I make as a hobby on Amazon)
How would one go about raising an issue of uneven distribution of workflow? I just don’t feel like I’m kept busy enough or staffed on enough transactions to meet budget.
Current non-equity partner here. Up for equity this year. Had a good year. Concerned that my firm will either forgo giving me a bonus or give me a lower bonus than I deserve in exchange for possibly giving me equity (which might not even result in an immediate raise). Thoughts?￼

At what point does it not make sense to buy/ build a bigger home? My husband dislikes our house immensely (was his with former wife) and wants to move. Only owes $180k on it, we’ve been together 6 years and thus I’d rather just remodel. It’s the only thing we disagree about - moving or staying. He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.
