Fb fam, need recommendations on the best Marriott property in south beach Miami for a weekend getaway
If you had 3-4 months off before starting an MBA program, what would you do? Usually I would travel internationally, but COVID restrictions make it a bit difficult. Am interested in things like: working on an organic farm/vineyard, national parks, wellness retreats (been a difficult year and I want to work on myself mentally), etc.

Our math teacher has come under fire recently for how grades are collected. Daily work is worth 4 points. It is scored using a rubric. Tests are worth 100. Test corrections are worth 1/2 a point. There may occasionally be quizzes. Thoughts

If I ultimately don’t want to work in financial reporting or a senior accountant position, and would much rather work in finance/FP&A, am I better off leaving now, or at least staying until I hit senior? Currently a second year trying to decide next steps.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
If I was laid off from my company due to budget cuts (not performance), do I write my résumé in past tense or act as if I’m still in the role? How bad is the stigma surrounding layoffs like this?

I'm currently working as a Data Scientist, at a 1T$+ M. Cap company, and transitioning to a Manager position. This would be my first management role. How do you navigate this change in terms of compensation, without having strong leverage? (eg other offers) The market average, in my area, for the two roles have quite a significant gap, how would you isolate this conversation about this raise, other than that I would be on a substantially different role? Anyone with exp with a similar transition?
