Hi ladies, I recently applied to Google, but then saw the news reports about the discrimination that POC are experiencing in these big tech companies. I would love to transfer my HR skills in to a tech job, but how do we feel about FAANG companies? Are there any other companies you recommend applying to?

So I’m considering to go back to school for my master in Engineering or Data Science next fall. Which is a 1.5 years program. However this current job crisis got me scared. What if I can’t get a job once I graduate? Will the job market come back to normal by 2025 👀
I feel like we’re going downhill. I might just move to Brazil and live with the Amazonian tribe at this point.

I love my supervisor, but he always talks during meetings to the point where I barely have a say until the end of the call. How do I politely tell him I'd like to have more input during meetings?
If I don’t have a work bestie after 5+ years of working at the same company, is it a sign I should move on? I get along with everyone, and I mostly enjoy my coworkers, but the couple people I’ve been closest to have left the firm and I feel like I don’t have any more confidantes at work, really.

Recos for where to go in Chicago?
Got back from a trip and found out my boyfriend cheated on me while I was away. This has always been a deal breaker in relationships for me so I decided to end the relationship. I’m heartbroken and don’t know how I’m going to be able to work while going through this. I feel so alone.
What’s your relationship with HR like? I’ve always worked at big agencies where it was easy to keep my distance from HR. Now, I’m at a way smaller agency and HR keeps trying to get to know me. How do I politely establish boundaries?
Mid or senior level creatives who started as juniors:
Did you work nights/weekends often as a junior and do you feel like that hard work paid off + got you into the position you are now?
I'm having a hard time setting work/life boundaries and sticking to them because I'm afraid I will be replaced by another junior who's willing to work harder. But I also don't want to set a bad precedent for myself that will carry into my career later on and cause burnout. Thoughts? Advice?
I'm job searching and recruiters have started asking for a portfolio link. As a strategist, with agency NDAs, I was surprised and shocked since we can't really share our work. Is the norm a does anyone have a portfolio they'd be willing to share as an example?
Hi all! Has anyone interviewed for a marketing specialist role for the big 4 corps?
I was asked to do a case study that is a comprehensive marketing plan for a service they offer after one HR screening. It raised some red flags for me because of the possibility of my work being stolen and also the amount of time it will take (at least a full weekend). I’ve heard companies as big as Spotify being accused of stealing ideas.
I’d love to work for a big 4 so is this normal for all of them?

Hi ladies. I need some advice. I'm currently out on maternity leave, to return in about a month. I was just informed my male counterpart in my department will be getting a promotion by our new boss. This is really a slap in the face considering I've been trying to fight for equal pay since last year when I found out another (former) male counterpart of mine was making 40k more than me. What would you do in my situation? Demand to know why I wasn't considered? Leave?
2.5 months into the new job and I feel like I’m being taken advantage of. I come with experience, education, skills. I’m quickly finding the job doesn’t line up with the description as I didn’t sign up to literally teach my boss. I’m finding my words, ideas, and credit for work being “presented” as if it was hers. This makes me uncomfortable as I have to sit and listen to her present my material to Sr leaders. Probation is 6 mos. I’m valuable to them but also dispensable. I’m the only POC, too.
How do I accept my body? I’m apple shaped, 5’10 and have never felt feminine. I’m 31, tired of hating myself, tired of dieting and feeling burnt out. Where do I even start
