Read your contract and it will specify there if you have a non- compete and if so, what the terms are.

That was the plan, except, I can't seem to find the contract I signed. I'm wondering how I can approach the HR about this topic without signalling my desire to leave the firm.

The firm is the one that holds project contracts with the client, not you so you can’t really decide you want to work at X client if your firm doesn’t have business there. Even disregarding noncompetes, you couldn’t go to a new firm and pick up your existing role unless your old firm got kicked out/fired, your new firm won the business, and decided to staff you there (a series of unlikely events). However, most very large companies do hire multiple consulting firms for different parts of their business and different projects, so there is a chance you could get staffed on that client at your new firm, especially if you request it. It just won’t be the same role.

like

Also, how can I figure out if I have a non compete without raising alarm in my current firm?

I'd first check at state level to see if non compete are even enforceable

Regardless of their enforceability, B4 honor non-competes... call it “gentlemen agreement,” so it’s not really your call but theirs.

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team.

There's a $200 golf networking event at some country club.

Plus I think I might have to buy special golf clothes. I'd be going for the golf lessons starting at 2PM and it includes a cocktail reception and dinner. The companies sponsoring seem meh.

Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.
