For my old bosses job. How weird would it be for me to apply to the job? I was being begged to stay when I left.

The reasons it feels weird are I only left a couple of months ago No one has officially reached out to me for the job just a friend mentioned it was open

Why would it be weird? People boomerang all the time. You just got more experience under your belt they didn’t have to pay you for. They want you back now more than ever.

What’s the worse that could happen? They don’t call you? Hell, reach out to someone there - never know.

Anyone else tired of the assumption that because you’re a partner you have to think a certain way and believe certain things. I’m talking about wokeness, work from home, and the recent ever constant pushing of the needle to the left or risk getting “cancelled”. I’m fairly liberal politically so for me to be saying this I think may say something for the current climate. I should be able to hold and express my own opinions without being quashed because I’m not “woke” enough.

Hi, would love some advice! I’ve been at my company ~1 yr and feeling like I need a change due to various reasons.

Right now, I play a BSA role on my team, and I’m hoping to pursue product/UX design. I’m also doing a UX bootcamp in the spring & working on a udemy course outside of work for UX/UI.
