Let’s say you have PTSD and that traveling is one the triggers. At what point would you bring this up in the hiring process for a remote job when they expect you travel a handful of times a year? I’m afraid if I say anything that I’d never get hired.

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments.

How do you pick an industry to exit to? I don’t have much experience, and I’m not a big fan of consulting, but I’m not sure where else I could get a decent paycheck and maintain some optionality to exit to an industry I like.

Should I switch to another consulting firm to get more exposure to other industries or should I directly exit to industry, and if so, which one?

Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
