Ideas for reaching out to alumni on LinkedIn you didn't know well in regards to a position at their firm? I feel that if I didn't mention the position in the intro email, I would be coming of as insincere. Any one else feel this way or advice to get around this? Thanks!

We’ve all been there. Shoot them over an email and tell him what’s up. Hey XYZ, hope you’re doing well. I was researching companies and found a role at your firm and am super interested. Would you happen to be free to chat for 10 minutes sometime? If you guys had some kind of overlap he’ll probably forward your resume to HR.

To All HRs, When we give interview, clear rounds, sometimes we want updates too whether we got selected or got rejected. How difficult it is to share the feedback. Why you guys keep us hanging on a thin thread of hope and despair. Why don't you end the suffering by telling the truth right way. Kindly share your thoughts. Dhanywaad.

What do staff want and what would make them happy? This is a serious question. I have been in public for 25 years. I swear I feel like a mom and therapist as much as a professional. I truly care about my staff. Treat then well, fight for them, invest in their futures. But the last few years it seems like nothing is enough. I am seriously considering early retirement because it is so emotionally draining on me. So many younger staff in here and all I see is complaints. Am I alone?
