I made a career pivot into a tech role, but it's a 6-month contract and I had to sacrifice my title. Several weeks in, my supervisors realized I'm capable and even mentioned bumping up my title soon. I'm guessing I can't negotiate my salary while still under contract (this is my first contract job). But is this something I can bring up if the role becomes FTE? Do salaries usually change drastically from contract to FT?
Is it really not a good idea buying and holding leveraged etfs? I mean.. look at the long term SOXLs performance
Hi fishes, I am working for client and I am finding myself isolated at office as everyone seems to be working like donkeys. No fun no WLB. Just work and leave. And they are monitoring us on 9 hours working time. I recently joined IBM and I have never worked at client location before. Feeling too low these days.

Facebook Ads after iOS 14 changes.
I'll share my experience and urge you to share yours:
Since iOS 14 changes, Facebook ads isn't the same anymore. Why?
A. >75% iOS users denied tracking. They are no longer tracked across websites/apps. Facebook lost its edge.
B. Targeting and conversion tracking aren't as effective anymore.
C. Many advertisers have been migrating their budgets from Facebook to Apple and Amazon ads.
What's your experience? Let's all learn.

Any insight on the culture of InfoSec at Hulu?
Second year associate in M&A. I like my group, the hours and market clearly suck, but I can’t complain too much. Is it smart to reply to some of the recruiter emails, just to see what’s out there? Some of these signing bonuses sound very appealing. Do I risk getting in trouble with my firm if they find out?

Non compete question…
I recently got a call from a recruiter for a competitor. Exmanager said I sign a 2 year noncompete…don’t remember but asking 3rd party HR for record.
If this progresses how enforceable is the noncompete clause if a previous manager went an even bigger competitor with theirs not enforced, old marketing manager left & I have been doing both jobs since with no promotion or $ after asking twice. Also I do not have access to any financials or product dev. info.

It’s been almost a full term and Hillary hasn’t been locked up, the wall hasn’t been fully built (nor has Mexico funded it), and the only swamp he’s drained is the same people he hired on his cabinet. So it’s safe to say that trump’s leading issues haven’t been accomplished
I’m losing all hope. I’ve been actively applying and interviewing for 8 months now. 3 final round interviews that I was turned away from. Now I’m running out of companies to apply for / people to refer me etc. I seriously don’t know what to do. Is it possible I am just stuck for a while now? I don’t like my industry so the hope of a recruiter reaching out based off my current work experience is worthless because I’m trying to slightly pivot to and ops type role at a start up. HELP

Would you ask about one?

Im totally stuck at work; my boss has stopped me from growing (not allowing me to try new things like sit in on mediation, attend depos or hearings or write different pleadings) and is constantly criticizing me. I want to make myself as attractive to other firms as possible but I feel limited in my skill set since I’m limited at work. What other ways can I gain skills at work? Write articles?

Interviewed to the final round at a buzzy tech startup. Multiple rounds of interviews, hours and hours spent appearing, preparing, etc. and rather than receive the rejection or offer I should have received by the end of the week as promised I get a “candidate experience survey” email at 3am todayfrom an @noreply email. Wtf is wrong with some people? Do startups low key treat people like fungible robots like law firms? I’m starting to respect big companies that have the courtesy to say “denied.”
I’ve been in big law for almost three years now and I find it remarkable that we never have conversations about whether our work is unethical, whether our clients have a net negative impact on society, or whether we as individuals-through our work-are leaving the world a worse place than we found it.
Anyone on income based loan repayment? Can’t decide whether to try to pay off ASAP Dave Ramsey-style or pay as little as possible, let interest balloon and have the balance “forgiven.” Both seem equally bad at this point (> $200k in loans), especially when income is projected to increase over time. Thoughts?
