Now is just as good of a time as any. If you really want out of PA, just jump ship now.

Hi Everyone!

Not that I am planning to relocate anytime soon but wanted to have your thoughts on which country you think is a safer option to relocate to?
Earlier I was interested to move somewhere in Europe but with the whole Russia and Ukraine situation and now possibility of Sweden and Finland joining NATO and Russia telling them not to, I don't think Europe might be a good option in the coming years.
Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

I left my previous employer citing personal family issues. They were toxic, I honestly wasn’t sad to leave. Now one week later, they text me saying they heard I’m working at a hospital in the area and “tell me it isn’t true.” Im not working there… but weird they would say that? And I don’t even want to answer but I also don’t want them to hate me and ruin my reputation as a therapist in this small town. Im still onboarding at my new job. How do I respond?

I’m not sure what to do think. We were informed our managers (Hr manager, site manager, VP of Ops) all have on site mentors and coaches. Everyone on site was notified of this change also our corporate leaders are here for 2 weeks. Currently it’s very messy for the rest of us, our managers tell us not to talk to their mentor even though everyone is in the same building. Is this a bad sign for our management ?

I just got an offer for a lateral position and have until Feb 12 to accept (I’m going to). They’re eager for me to start. Once I accept, it won’t take long to clear conflicts so I could theoretically be giving my firm my 2 weeks as early as next week. I have had a vacation planned for a while the last week of Feb (2 biz days in a remote cabin) — is it bad if I take it during my 2 weeks notice? Or should I postpone my start date?
