When the partner says "you're doing it exactly right, I don't need to see another draft": 🥰 When you realize he's getting sick of your emails: 🤓
I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
So sick of my partner initially asking me to do ABC, then later tells me he expected XYZ!!!

Team activity to go to a theme park. 10 weeks and haven’t told anyone at work. Pretending to feel sick or disinterested. I’ve already made up food poisoning to explain diet changes. Lies are tough!

Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?

Is it bad if I apply to several positions at a company? The referral I said that it probably hurt my chances in the application process. I want to increase my chances.
Have a call tomorrow to discuss an offer for IP director of a series c startup. I was told early on by HR that the comp was 180 base + bonus and equity. Can anyone provide insight on what type of bonus and equity I should expect? I believe bonus should be provided as a target % of base, but I’m not well versed in equity. The company is a Bay Area ag tech company but my position is fully remote. I have 6.5 YOE (but 5 of those years were as a patent agent).
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
How do we take a sick day if you’re a freelancer? Do you guys cancel jobs if you’re feeling sick? Even if you’re halfway through them and it’s a pitch, knowing that they’d be pretty screwed if you pulled out. Nervous about damaging the relationship…

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Since we're bragging... I now work 100% remote, bill 20 hrs a week but actually work about 10 hrs and make $75k. I feel like I have unlocked all the cheat codes and beat the game. #blessed 🙏

International tax manager with 7 years experience all at KPMG. Thinking about switching to industry to see it from a new perspective and do similar work from a different angle. How do you successfully transfer B4 skills/experience to industry (how do you find the right fit?), and how do you continue to learn and build your skills so that you’re still marketable and could boomerang back if it doesn’t work out in a few years? Am I asking too much?
