Hi All,

I got offer letter from mastercard with joining date as 14 nov and my LWD is 23 nov.. So i informed HR and they agreed that revised joining date will be provided as per LWD screenshot from current organization.

Now I have done follow up multiple time and they are saying they will do it and keep trust on them but not providing ETA.

So any one gone through these scenario and does mastercard extended joining date??

What are peoples current mortgage interest rates in the US and when did they start?

I'm from the UK and looking to move the US sometime soon with a view to buy and currently on a 1.4% interest rate on my UK property secured about 12 months ago for the next 5 years (so a good time to do it).

But seeing much higher interest rates mentioned on here so curious to get a temperature check on people's current deals.

So I had been working as medical interpreter up to the early part of this year. Today, during an interview, the Director with whom I was interviewing genuinely urged me to consider pursuing a career as a PA or even attempt to go to medical school. I had considered it in passing before but today was about the third or fourth time that someone had earnestly nudged me in that direction. Has anyone here made such a career pivot before? I love working in healthcare, there’s nothing like it.
