Our nurse has an email group of our states school nurses that she can bounce ideas off, or ask questions etc. Is there anything like that for secretaries? Teachers are keen to share how they handle things in their classrooms, but every school does attendance, has messages that need to be relayed thru the day, all these things going on, I just always wonder how it's handled elsewhere. I took this position two years ago and I don't like "This is just how it's always been done".

Anyone want to go halfsies on an M&A modeling course or currently have access to the mergers inquisitions / WSO course that I could share with you in exchange for a venmo payment?

Ad creatives, what's the etiquette on reneging on a preliminary offer to extend a contract? I've been freelancing with a consultancy for a few months and they're trying to get me to extend.

I really want to change firms and try for higher TC elsewhere, but I have been burning out and want to take 3 months off between jobs. I haven't started applications or interviewing yet, but I don't think anyone will push out a start date that long. If I quit without a job lined up and start applying months later, will that put me in a worse position in terms of negotiating TC?

Hi all. I have been recently offered a position at guidehouse with a great pay increase from my current position. I expressed my concern of how important work life balance is and I was assured it was a standard 40 hour work week with occasional 45 hours.

My supervisor and project leadership are opening a job requisition with my recommendations for a tech-focused position to support the teams I am on. Salary included.

The gist of the position would strategize with leadership, manage IT projects, be a product owner for tech, and manage cross-functional teams. My range of expectation is 95k to 100k for this, I think they expect around 80k. Thoughts?
