What’s the appropriate time to wait before following up on an interview? I want to affirm my interest and desire for the role, but don’t want to do so too soon. I submitted a video interview Sunday evening.
Beginner level question from a newbie on the journey:
When people talk about retiring at the age of 40 and 45 - where are they pulling the funds from to live off of? Aren't most of these funds that make up your net worth tied up in investments that have tax penalties for withdrawals (Roth, 401K etc)? Do you liquidate at the point that you decide to retire?￼￼

Forgive my social awkwardness but do you guys get your creative partners Christmas gifts? This is my first real partner, and I’m trying to decide if it’ll be weird.
Had a call with Financial advisor and according to him, I am not diversified. I am in VTI. Per him indexes are all time high but in reality it’s just few stocks holding the fort and markets are loosing steam to go down or flat for next few years. Asked me to add international fund and small cap value. Any thoughts?
Does anyone know of any business oriented, but novel/fictional books with interesting characters? Not looking for self-help, more of actual literature with business themes/plots.
Freelancers, ever experience this: you/your partner deliver "really great" (no flex, their words) TV scripts, big nat'l brand. Then you see younger FT'ers scripts & are like WHAT EVEN ARE THESE? Off-strategy. Unfunny. Contrived. Nonsensical "30s" that are 1:46's. 99% of concepts are about characters making TikToks that are even less funny than the spot itself. Is it "everyone gets a trophy" 'cause they don't wanna demoralize FT'ers? It's their call but how on earth can they present such trash?

What’s the most wild story you’ve been given as to why an employee can’t get the vaccine / wear a mask per your company guidelines?
So I’ve always had a rough time trying to find what role titles I would be a good fit to apply to given that my career growth has been so peculiar (HR assistant at hotel, Operations Manager at hotel, seller support at Amazon, customer experience coordinator at an IT company, talent acquisition specialist at a health org)
In those roles I normally took more in my plate than the typical role requires (hr functions, data analysis, etc)
With 6-7 years if exp what role should I look?
I put my two weeks in at my job for several reasons, but now I am being harassed and made out to be “unproductive”. I want to quit early (before my two weeks), but can a company reach out to my new job and tell them I quit early? Is this considered job abandonment?
Story Time: We had a team member quit this morning without notice. When the management team asked why he was being so unprofessional and not giving two weeks' notice. The team member’s response was, “would you give me two weeks' notice before firing me”? No one knew how to respond to this.
I found a new job (huzzah!) and turned in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. But I started feeling crummy last night and went to the doctor for a COVID test today. Lab results already came back positive. So now I feel super guilty about basically calling in sick to my last two weeks of work...should I try and push out my start date to help out current employer? Feel like current supervisor is going to throw a hissy fit.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
I’m an HR Mgr, and need help approaching my HRC about her demeanor at work. She lost her father last fall, and since returning to work, she’s become incredibly delicate. Often cries at work, staff are hesitant to approach her; it’s like walking on eggshells constantly with her. She does her job well, she takes directions well, but there is no real initiative with projects/tasks and I NEED a strong no.2 - I feel like I’m constantly coaching her and trying to support her, but I’m tired 😣
Does anyone have suggestions for goals around data integrity? I'm looking for ways to ensure the data in our ATS is accurate and able to be trusted (things like our TTF, agency spend, candidate tracking, etc.). Any ideas on how to make sure our TA team is more on top of their data?
I’m regularly told that they’re exceeding expectations but then they get reviews that say they’re meeting expectations on a team full of people that do way less than they do? I’ve actually been told that if there was something between meets and exceeds…I’d get that…but there not, so I get the same average performer raise, recognition, etc.
Is this normal? And is THIS what is triggering the quiet quitting movement? Let me know.
Hi all, I currently work as a HR coordinator and have been an HR coordinator for 3 years. I started at a new company last July 2021 but recently I have been feeling unhappy at my current company. I feel like I should start looking for a new position and wanted to know y’all thoughts since I haven’t been there for a year yet.
Thanks in advance.
P.s. I am not a civil engineer. I just work in that field. I tried to change my title on here but it just says pending….
