Any tips on how to prepare for a Skills Test Interview? I wasn't told the specifics but the interviewer will be sending me the assessment exercise 48 hours beforehand. It is a junior paralegal position at an estate law firm. I was told the purpose of the assessment is to see if I can perform the daily tasks of the job and test my soft skills.

This dude who is poly said he loves cooking and his love language is acts of service. He’s a mutual acquaintance I just met. I’m the opposite of poly and it’s not a secret. He cooked a meal and left it on my doorstep because I’ve been sick. I didn’t know he was gonna do that. As a friend gesture it was kind if him. But IS IT a friend gesture, knowing what I know of him? I wanna be courteous. But I’m not sure how to read this or how to clarify it without risking embarrassment either way???
How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!
Anyone know what most employers’ policies are on weed these days? I found out I have to do a hair follicle drug test for my new job, and I have taken a few small (5mg) edibles in the past 90 days.

Weird how the people who claim to believe in making government smaller have no problem with unfettered Federal interference in issues that fall under State jurisdiction (threatening States over their COVID and protest response) or a political party trying to force their interests into private businesses by threatening to repeal protections https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/live/2020/10/28/technology/tech-hearing.amp.html

What do you do when small local firms won’t give your resume the time of day, but everyone you ask for resume feedback on says your materials are fine? These aren’t big law or boutiques, we’re talking probably paying $20-30 an hour part time as an associate with firms of 1-3 attorneys generally. I know biglaw is recovering from COVID but has it really hurt small law so badly getting an interview is next to impossible? Any and every practice area. Work is work. Approx. 500k local population size.
Any positive job changes after becoming a mom? I'm having a bit of trouble deciding which direction I want to pivot my career. Yes I want to do work that is fulfilling but I also want to find a role that allows me to balance my life as a mother, especially during Covid.
