Had an hour-long screening call with Lyft HR on a Friday pm. Sent a TY note the next day (Saturday) with work samples that addressed some of the points/needs discussed during the call, noting I’d wait to hear more after Wednesday (of last week, when she would connect with the hiring manager to determine who would be interviewing/moving on to the next round). No reply to that Saturday email + nothing since. Should I check in? Do I just wait? Want to convey interest but don’t want to annoy.
Question for all in-house recruiters. How many hires are your onboarding on an annual basis? I’m crafting my resume to be able to quantify some of my accomplishments and was wondering if 98 new hires in one year could be a good thing to add or bad? I don’t know what to compare to since my previous company didn’t measure a lot of metrics and data points. Thanks in advance!

Just purchased a Nintendo Switch for the wife and I. Looking for game recommendations that we can play together. Figured it would be something fun to do while at home. Other data points: We aren’t gamers. We haven’t had a game system in years. Thanks!
Project manager is acting kind of weird. Declined sending out meeting minutes with key points and next steps that the team Drafted for him) and isn’t sending out key deliverables on dates that HE set.
What are some pain points resonating with your prospects right now? What made them seem you out right now?
I am watching the RNC convention after watching some of the DNC convention last week. They are opposite. It does seem to me that RNC is much less negative and alive. DNC was brutal & came across as fake due to the prerecorded events. If this convention continues like this I expect Trump to pick up a couple points. I prefer positive politics over negative from Biden.
Seeing a lot of people ask if they need to bump their GMAT score up from like 720 to 760 - NO! It is one part of the application (tick box IMO once you hit 700). Further study is an opportunity cost of writing great essays. Work out your unique selling points with lots of great examples. Do the essays then when you think it’s perfect, leave for 2-3 weeks and reread like you don’t know you - guarantee you’ll redo. Screenshot of areas I typically need to explore (school gives guidance).

What is the best possible offer for L66 at Microsoft? Recruiter is asking me to give a number that I will accept and I need some top quartile data points
Last minute trip to see friends in Chicago. Which is more worth it? - 24k points vs $300 round trip *note I’m 24 and just used ~50k points on a Europe trip. Thinking about a new CC soon anyway.
Want to go to either SE Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Laos) or Australia next spring. Never been to either. Don’t have enough points for the flight and will already be going to W EU in summer.
UPDATE: ES dropped 25 points in the last 30 minutes; VIX has spiked from 25.07 - 29+ . . . all rather curious. Good for my short position. But, in early Asian trading, the market is on the back foot. Of course, that could simply mean people want to buy it and it roars back in Europe. But, let's see where it goes from here. This evening selloff does make the Head and Shoulders a firmer possibility . . . . as the right should is in. But, you only get follow through if you break the 3189 support.
Hi all, I received a verbal offer for VP Product Manager at JP Morgan. Looking for data points on the TC, and split I can expect. Role is in NYC. Would really appreciate your thoughts.
Just scored a 750 on the GMAT (49Q/42V/8IR). Is this worth re-taking to potentially score 20-30 points higher? Reasons I'm considering are (1) verbal was significantly below expectations and (2) I'm in a very competitive ORM bucket Shooting for HSW. Undergrad gpa was 3.9 at a top-5 school
