I’ve interviewed three times with two separate employers. Both have now appeared to have ghosted me in response to my candidacy. Is this the new normal, or are employers hesitant about hiring during COVID and are simply exploring the market? How long do I wait before contacting them a second time before writing off the opportunity?

Sadly I think ghosting has been in practice long before covid. Possibly because no one likes to deliver bad news about no longer being considered, possibly because there are just more important tasks for the HR team. Stay positive and keep searching / applying.

Need some advice: Boss and Partner came into town for two days last week. Most people got drunk, I did not, as I had 3 drinks over the 5 hours we were at dinner and then at the cigar bar.

How do you make a new friends in 2022? Took a job in a small, quiet city. Blue New England area that's very COVID cautious. Most bars close before 11p. I like the firm, I like the work, but I cannot see myself staying long term in an area where I don't have friends and everyone seems scared of interacting with people they don't know. I'm not even talking about dating (though that'd be nice), I'm just talking about not spending all my off time drinking alone in my apartment.

No amount of money is ever enough - is that the truth? I’m taking a risk of forgoing my $200k salary + ~$50k stock options to join an early startup. Their base salary offer was i) $185k + equity 0.12% OR ii) $195k + equity 0.08%. I chose the former. But with the inflation, maybe I should have chosen the latter so I can hold some more cash. I know the difference is not a lot but I’m nervous about my decision. Should I stay? Or ask to revert and switch to a higher base? (I already signed :/)
