I'm a little ashamed I didn't ask myself this question. It's so obvious.

Is it a delusion of grandeur, or just 'faking it till you make it'.

We all know the quiet ones fall by the wayside and the loudmouths move up.

We've incentivised this behavior as an industry, and as a species.

That’s just called a boss.

At my old firms when I would be using excel and modeling using the font schemes (blue, green, black for hardcode, link, and formula) I could use the “control shift ;” to shift through the schemes. My new firm doesn’t do this. Does anyone know why the shortcut would be different and how I can add it back?

What are y’all doing to recruit new talent to agencies right now? My firm (NY-based) is having a challenging time finding qualified people across all levels (except entry level/AC/AAE). We have recruiters on the case but they are bringing us zero candidates. So many roles open but cannot find people for them. Is it the same everywhere?

I’ve had many interviews, followed by many rejections. They always ask the same thing: how far along are you in your job search or with interviews with other companies? Do they ask this because they like you and want to make sure they don’t lose you to another offer or because if you’re actively looking they don’t want to get into any battles? Not sure how to even answer this, I’ve been honest in the past but not sure if it’s hurt me.

How does one catch their manager in a lie? I have hard evidence via email on what they told me during the interview process about how long they will train me.

However, I can’t let them get away with this as they will treat the next person like this.
