Are broker fees a thing in San Fran? Paying ridiculous fees to rent makes me hate this city
I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)

Hi there! For the last 20 years, I’ve been in project/program manager roles. Most recently, I spent the last 12 years in a learning development role managing the development of sales and technology training. Also, facilitating and partnering with sales on the development of Hunter workshops and sales/Pre-sales new hire training. I’m looking to switch careers to being in sales as an account manager / sales development rep. Advice on how to get interviews in this new dream role?
We shouldn’t go back to the classroom this Fall. I got positive for COVID from just hugging my sister who was asymptotic. This is Day 5 after I started showing symptoms. The first two days were hell. The hardest thing about this virus is how it affects your mental state.
How have you retained the will to keep going on your current trajectory? I’m currently on track for promotion and doing well, but I’m struggling to muster the energy needed to keep it up. Just bored
I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.

Till when are Drivers license extended in Jersey? Mine expired in September but car rental guy told me that my license is not extended. Showed me DMV guidance that only licenses expired before august 30th are extended till December. This is such nonsensical logic. Anyone faced something similar? Also are we do online renewal on visa?
I have a legit medical exemption for the Vax. Does this mean I cannot go into the office and client cite? Will I be forced to work from zoom? Also will everyone think I’m antivax and judge me?
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
Does anyone have any tricks to make themselves look older? When I'm clean shaven I'm a baby face 👶🏼
