I was offered a job today at a local furniture company but they want me to start tomorrow? Is that a bad sign or a good sign?

Don’t read into it. If you want a week, don’t be afraid to ask.

It’s the great resignation and there are more jobs than candidates. This is affecting bottom lines and morale. Every company is eager to get butts in seats from the individual contributors to the most important exec roles. Longer they wait between start date and acceptance the more likely that others covering your job on top of their own will get overworked, the more likely you are to look at other roles, and in many cases, the more revenue that’s lost.


This is true espepcially for semi-informal/family0-owned and amanged companies. They have their own system and it works for them.

It means they are desperate and you won’t be able to end things on a good note with your current employer if you join the new company right away. Consider the salary before making any move.

Meh...Its not a bad sign. They have probably been hiring for awhile. Most places need you to start asap.

A year into my job, I've learnt over casual talk with peers that the firm often reduces annual pay of employees if they're underperforming consistently. How common is this in the industry?

I’d like input!

I am currently a charge nurse and am in a “Pathway to Leadership Program” that will come with promotions into leadership/administration. I am concerned that going through the leadership ladder will lead to a lot of politics.

I am thinking of getting a masters of healthcare informatics, and would love input from people in both industries and any advice you have!

Would you continue into the nursing leadership ladder or go into health informatics (which also has leadership!)?

Property and Casualty license. I decided to get into insurance after 10 years of retail. This is whole new industry for me so a little nervous about the classes to get this license. I was always a C grade kid in school and never really did well in test. I’m not a dummy though. I can pick up things if I see you do it and me try it after. I am a very visual learner and am able to learn new things. Wondering what’s your experience was with classes and test?

So far I have managed to bring in significant deals to the company by leading lead generation and prospecting campaigns. However I am left out of internal discussions, product updates and feel as if the ceo is unaware of my contributions

The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?


I just took a new job and the OTE is less than agreed to after going through the comp plan. Also the recruiter told me 50% of people were hitting their quota and no one was less than 70% last year. However I found out the last 6 months everyone is less than 10%. I know get that recruiters can mislead with performance metrics but giving the wrong OTE seems super unethical to me.
