Ive had two different partners say “I was senioring jobs as a staff 1.” Lol I’m assuming this is like the “I walked 5 miles in the snow with no shoes” type BS older people say.

I think it is pretty common to uncharge a job when ur a first year. Not a good plan, but common. If ur a staff and you have not had this happen yet, then just keep enjoying ur bubble. When ur promoted to senior, and are slapped with the reality of accountability for the whole project completion


I interned for a solid year during college so this is actually kind of true for me.


^ what year was that? Senioring a job now a days is much more difficult than 20+ years ago.


Senioring now is easier with all the technology we have...


I did legitimately do this but it was the latter half of staff 1 year and a very small project that had an excellent senior training me before they left (I was “senioring” interns and GDS)


PA now is a lot harder than in the past with PCAOb regulators and required work papers.


If right after 404 I believe it

I feel empty. Had an ok performance review this year but some bad 360 feedback (I didn’t see them yet). What should I do?


Always wanted to adopt a puppy and this time seems perfect as I can be home all day for months to give the puppy the attention it needs in its initial months. I can’t decide on what puppy to get. Live in a hot climate area and own a big house with a decent size backyard. I am wanting to adopt either Labrador, golden retriever, Pomsky husky or a German shepherd. What would be best for a first time dog parent?

What is your top favorite lesson? Mine would be one last year when I had to find the time to get into the classrooms and teach. I led a talk about the Harlem Renaissance and the kids made a jazz collage. It will be much easier with the art room back open.

I eat healthy pretty consistently, but have also tried to cut down on calories in an attempt to lose weight. I see the weight loss SLOWLY happening but I keep thinking about food all the time and it makes me unhappy that I have to restrict my intake. Does it get easier to eat “less”?

I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
