Doesn’t sound like you’re too close, time to move on.

Ok if you were friends with them and saw them socially I guess.

Sure, I am not sure if it’s that big of a deal. Don’t think about it too much

If you hung out and got dinners drinks after work sure that’s normal.

Where are you going OP ?

If you’re asking this question, you’re prob not close enough. I could be wrong…nonetheless, LinkedIn or just texts and phone calls and meet-ups seem more appropriate initially

I would do LinkedIn. I block all coworkers from FB and have a secondary TW for personal use. Never mix biz w pleasure.

This is what Linkedin is for

If you’re asking and not already friends with them on social media, send a LinkedIn request, sounds like it wasn’t that kind of friendship

Just got an offer for a Sr. AWS DevOps role at 145K, I will be working remotely 100% with maybe 5% travel, if any. No bonus with this company. I have over 8 years of DevOps and AWS, all AWS certs . Should I be asking for more $? Thoughts on the offer and how much more $ I should be asking for ? Current location is kinda irrelevant since I will be working remotely.

Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen).

Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻

Nearing the end of the interview process for a mid level Product Designer role but experience wise I’d be considered more junior. What do I ask for in terms salary? (Sorry if it’s a stupid question) I’ve gone through whiteboarding and a design challenge so skill wise I think I’ve proven to them I am capable. They gave me a range for the role so would I just go with that? It’s higher than average in the market and one I’d be happy with but I feel weird since I’m not actually mid level.

Side note, what have been your signing bonuses recently and how many YOE?
