I’m putting my mental and emotional heath first and quitting my job at the end of the year. I cannot put up with the toxicity any longer! I have been applying for other positions since September when I made this decision and only got 2 interviews 😭 Are there any other transitioning teachers out there struggling to secure a new job?! I have a lot of experience that aligns with the positions I’m seeking, but NO BITES! The clock is ticking and I’m PETRIFIED about not having a job!

Good for you! Even though it's scary to jump ship, it's great to put your health first. How do you feel like your interviews went? Maybe it's time to sit down with a coach to go over CV and application best practices? Everyone says it's an employees job market right now...but I don't think that's really the case.


I feel like the interviews went well, but I keep second guessing myself because I do not have a lot of interviewing experience. I was told I did not get the first job I interviewed for because they cut the position, and I am still waiting on a follow-up regarding the interview I had last Monday 😬 I have to agree with your statement about this being an employee’s job market… I find it so hard to get an first level interview or find a job that is listed as “entry level” but not requiring so many years of experience

It’s hard when there seems to be nothing coming your way, but something good will come. Try to be patient and be proud of the skills you have. They will pay off. Kudos to you for loving yourself enough to preserve your physical and mental health. All the best.


Thank you 🥺💕

Have you tried a sales position? There are pros and cons, but the work necessary to succeed is no harder than teaching. Just a thought…

Hi Fishes,
I had 4-5 rounds of interview in Amazon in last 1.5 months, including bar raiser. I got a mail stating I am selected for position within 4 hours of my bar raiser round.
HR asked for a few documents like last 3 months payslips, ECTC etc. It's been 4 working days and that HR is not replying on my mail. It is fine or something is off track ? Any suggestions ?
Does they usually turn back after sending selection mail and asking for documents

Thanks in advance !


I went through two rounds of interviews for
a job that the posting stated $36.66 per
hour (FP&A Analyst)…the company
recruiter had told me in the initial call the
pay could be 32-36 because of the other
benefits. If I do get a job offer what range
should I try for? I was really hoping to get
around the 36-40 but now I feel like they
may try to offer lower than what was
posted. Also there was no range but the
average for this position is upper 70s-90k.
Thanks for any help!

I’m torn - any advice? I lead a great team whom I love in an organization/environment that is terrible. I have an interview lined up at another company to go back to individual contributor work, but just the thought of leaving my team makes me feel sick to my stomach. I love serving my team, but I can’t shake the feeling that my current company will never actually change no matter what I do. Do I stay to try to make it as good as I can for my team or show them it is ok to move on? Thoughts?

What's going on here? Right now I do compliance, using data, at MUFG.
