I got job in EPAM recently and I have got selected for two projects out of which one uses Selenium and other one Katalon studio. The katalon studio project has informed that they use docker, aws in their project so i got excited to opt it so that it will be an experience to work (also to add katalon too in skills) .
Now my question is,
How good actually is Katalon project?

What happened to The Points Guy’s engagement?
Waze needs to implement statuses within the app. You earn points currently for reporting road situations (construction, weather, cops, hazards, etc). They should have level thresholds you unlock by earning X points from reporting conditions. The higher the status, 1) the greater the priority you get for faster routes and 2) the larger the impact of your condition reports / condition confirmations or rejections on other users’ reports. People would be greater incentivized to report conditions

Hi everyone! This is my first post and I need help! I have been searching for HR Mgr, HRBP roles, or Senior HR Generalist roles now since November of 2021.

If you know of any roles in the Omaha area, LMK!
Analysis of the economic impacts of Biden's tax plan from the (non-partisan) Tax Foundation. Some lowlights:
-585K fewer jobs
-1.51% reduction in GDP
-less after tax income for all taxpayers
All this while still not covering the cost of the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations... so we all get less and deficits continue to grow. I think we can all agree that what we need now is less jobs, a smaller economy, less money, and more debt, right? 🙄

Are awards still make or break, and do top shops like Rethink, Cossette, FCB etc. only hire creatives from big shops or other top shops? I’ve been in the biz for 6-7 years working at mostly small/mid-size shops & got some good work (so the CDs say), like some fun TV & social for big brands, but I’m finding myself a bit stuck. I know it’s COVID, and no awards + being a WOC probably doesn’t help. Thoughts on hiring process from people who work at these places?

So I’m trying to buy a house next year if the market calms down a bit. In North Nj area so it’s expensive here. Anyone have any idea how much of a mortgage I’d get approved for?

I remember a bunch of my friends didn’t want to buy their first houses in 2008-2009 because the prices were going down…
Buying our first house. Before seeing the contract in front of me, love the house, location, and price. But in contracting trying to find every reason not to sign and not feeling the same way as when touring the house. Is this just normal given the huge purchase or do most people feel excited and confident entering into a contract? I don’t look like any of these HTGV couples buying their new home 😛
