I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?

Yes, I would. Low effort, easy, and good first impression.



I’d say Put on a collar or Business causal . Doesn’t hurt to make a good first impression and show that you’re serious.

Business casual, yes. I think going full penguin in your house is weird.

Yes. First impressions matter

Thanks for the responses. Reason I asked is because the recruiter reached out to me initially and requested to speak ASAP lol

So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.

I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
