I have a phone screen for a job but I applied for two jobs with the company . It didn’t specify what job it was for. It it ok to email the recruiter and ask ?

Absolutely. They should have specified when they set it up. Or it is a general screen to see which one you would be a better fit for. Either way, it’s fine to ask… no harm and gives some insight to their organization and how they think.

Yes for sure! The last thing you want is for YOU to come off unprepared.

Advice: About to resign for an offer too good to refuse, I want to give 2 weeks notice, but from seeing others leave it’s a same-day policy as often the case in any sales role. I worry the company won’t pay my long overdue commission (1 of a few reasons why I’m leaving) if I give 2 weeks, don’t want to burn a bridge with my boss as a good reference if I wait for said commission. I also don’t want to weigh the scenario if they counter. WWYD?

I have roughly $150k in student loans, but I plan to get a government job and have the loans forgiven under PSLF after my stint in biglaw. I want to put a huge down payment on a really nice house so that when I quit, the monthly payments are low. Does it make sense to save my money for the house, or would you recommend still paying as much as I can towards student loans? (28, never owned a house and not good with understanding finances). Thanks for advice in advance!


Acceptance is the answer.
