I lived in tampa in my early 20s and am now in my late 30s and looking to move back. One of the reason I left is because I felt I had too much energy for the city for a single young professional, but now husband is from there and we have a kid but we are both social people. Do you guys find it easy to meet interesting people and has the city gotten any more fun?

The city is completely different nowadays. You wouldn't recognize it from a decade ago.

It has such a great quality of life for a young family but of course where you live matters. PM if you are looking for a great career with a firm that loves and spoils their team.

I just came for a visit and thought I would check in with this bowl. Wow the city has changed so much. Husband and I are considering moving back, would anyone be up for a chat about consulting jobs here?

OP, did you end up moving? I'm considering moving to St. Pete and would love advice on where to stay, what to do, etc. Heard downtown was awesome.

How would you compare living in Tampa versus St. Pete?

For context:
-36M, single so seeking to date for LTR
-Work remotely from home
-Have a dog and enjoy nature/trail walks with him
-Enjoy bars and restaurants a lot ("foodie" lol)
-Like to run outside along a path or trail 3-5 days a week

Currently looking at the Camden Central Apt in St. Pete. Toured it last year and was really impressed. Enjoy the sense of community it brings.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

TL;DR: having trouble fitting in with the rest of the attorneys in my firm being super young compared to the rest of them. Not sure how to navigate.

Just started in June at a small firm where I’m the 7th attorney. I’m a K-JD and just passed the bar in August (🥳), making this my first real law job. The next associate is 10 years older than me. Everyone has spouses and at least one kid. All they talk about is said spouses and kids. I have none of that. Being social w/them is super hard. Help?

I got an offer from Accenture recently. A fews days back I received a mail saying that my background check process has been put on hold and I need to share a few documents. The documents asked were form 16 for the entire tenure with my ex-organization and PF statement for the entire tenure as well. I shared the Form 16 but did not have the PF statement for the entire tenure with the ex-organization. So I shared all my payslips during my tenure with the organisation. Will that be sufficient?
