What is the salary as software/website manual and automation QA tester with no experience in New York? I have bachelor's degree major in health science. Is there a lot of open positions in QA?
Question for the group: right now I’m actively looking for a home with my agent. If I happen to find a home on my own (without his help), should I bring him in (maybe for paper work if it’s hard) or exclude him? Haven’t signed anything with him so more like good faith vs getting stuck.
Some jackass referred to a follow up email yesterday as a “tickle email.” I didn’t know whether to be creeped out or punch him in his wannabe buzzword face.
Anyone who can help me apply H1B for next Mar
Are people shaking hands again yet? I've got an in person meeting next week and not sure what changes to etiquette have been brought about by COVID (UK)
I wonder what would happen if advertising creatives - the ones with jobs and the ones looking - did the same thing to recruiters and headhunters that we screenwriters and TV writers did to agents...
Are there any firms trying to up their game and compete with the Deloitte Human Capital behemoth? EY, KPMG, and PWC’s HC offerings just seem pathetic. I have heard PWC is trying something new.
Made it all the way to final interview rounds, got really amazing feedback the entire time… then last night I get an impersonal email from HR saying they made an offer to another candidate. I’m so shocked and devastated. I really thought I had it, and it was all based on how complimentary they were the entire time. Part of me wants to reach out to some of the folks I interviewed with to thank them again and ask for feedback and part of me wants to go to bed. Should I reach out…?
What do you do when you follow a partner’s instructions to the T, but they end up criticizing your work product and by extension your competency? Do you politely push back or just take it?
What's everyone's favorite store that has been permanently closed? For me it's Kmart, I guess they still have a few stores open but nothing here on the West coast. It's like they just disappeared and I didn't even notice
What is WOW in the designation for some of the offers made by Natwest group Is it something specific to some department/technology. I don’t have that in my offer but heard people here having that, so wanted to clarify

Is anyone in Portland conservative? What is it like for you being there? I get along with just about anyone, but seems pretty hostile towards non-liberal folks from what I've seen
I currently work as a optician, referral coordinator and optometry technician. Busting my butt off wearing all 3 hats and I get paid $20 an hour… I don’t think this is a fare wage considering I’m doing the job of 3 people. I want to negotiate a higher wage any tips of what I should ask for?

Got a date with a girl I've admired for a while this weekend, where should I take her? Best romantic/fun date spots, ideally with great food or near great food. She has no dietary restrictions as far as I know. Thanks

Oregon vendors needed
Moving to Oregon from California in about a month. I don't know anyone in the city. Any suggestions on activities/cool sights to see?
Is moving from Seattle worth it? I've heard the freeze is still in affect in Portland but I'm more worried about prices. I WFH mostly and pull down like 120k a year, Seattle is getting crazy expensive rent wise and crazy full. I'd like to find somewhere new but stick to the PNW.
Biggest Portland stereotypes? Do you think they're true or not true?
Mine is that everyone in Portland is into hiking, snowboarding or running....I promise there are some homebodies/non-athlete types out here y'all we just have to find each other ahah.
Anyone have any connections with Portland General Electric? I am a design technician that works remotely on pole replacement jobs (designing, creating construction drawings, estimating) based in California. My 6 month contract will be up with my company soon and I am looking for a better salary (I currently make ~$48k/yr). This is my first job in this field as I graduated from UP in 2020 and it took a while to land a "professional" job due to the pandemic.
Ok I'm not that into cars, but I think it's dope that Formula E is doing the all-electric motorsport race here next year. As someone in the Portland service industry I'm all for anything that will bring people to the city, and I feel like we don't have that much sports stuff going on here usually. Would you go to this if it wasn't too expensive? Does Portland have much of a car scene?

Pimsleur is a great method. How you naturally pick up languages. DO NOT BEGIN with learning to read or write. Trust me. Like a child, learn to speak FIRST. That’s where duolingo gets it wrong.
PCC if you want formal classes. If you want to learn on your own, use the software. There are a couple of good ones.
As in Mandarin Chinese? I’ve been considering this for a little while now. .
Is it on Duollingo? I would give that a try.
