Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Can someone tell me what is the gross annual income of a Credit Risk Analyst (experience 4/5 years) in the Netherlands working for an Investment Grade Bank ?
Hey everyone any good low cost dividend ETFs or good stocks that pay consistent dividends out there? So far I’ve bought SCHD and then I bought Blackstone (BX) as a dividend paying stock. I understand that I could pick from the list of stocks SCHD is comprised of, but I’m restricted in certain individual stock picks. Additionally, I have TQQQ and VOO as my index funds. Any thoughts on allocating more to dividend stocks vs SP500 index funds?

Am I crazy? I am barely cracking 35 hrs a week, getting paid over 400k TC and tons of autonomy. I am bored out my mind and looking for opps outside consulting even if it means a cut in pay/title and increase in workload.
I felt very well put together and on a good path...until I joined the Salaries bowl. #BigMistake. A solid year of mental confidence work down the drain.
Hi! I took a job been here for 4 weeks now and hate it. No training my manager is not organized. Thursday I have an interview. How should I approach my manager and her know this position isn’t for me?
Extremely toxic work environment & interviewing for other jobs. Would you 1) risk being fired (unsure when) or 2) quit/give notice and risk not having an offer fast enough? My finance is set and I’m primarily concerned about professional reputation. Somewhat unsure what to say to interviewers with whom I already started the process, though the real reason is role is nothing like advertised worsened by diff personalities… What would you do?

My husband will say “f*%k you” during arguments and I hate it. I thinks it’s disrespectful and told him it’s verbally abusive. He said its not and that he will continue to say it if that’s what he feels. Am I wrong or is it indeed considered verbal abuse?

I’m starting to feel so hopeless and depressed. My job (that I’m thankful to have) keeps me busy 14+ hours a day. I’ve basically abandoned my kids and it’s lord of the flies over here. I can’t keep up. I’m tired and there is no end in sight. I don’t really know what to do.

Interviewed for a new position in another department. Offered 70k. I haven’t countered, but plan on countering 3k more. My current position is receiving a salary increase to 66k (from 61k). Good and bad within both roles regarding overall responsibilities. Though my current role is very cushy and I love my supervisor and VP. Help…how should I proceed?
Do any moms have advice? It’s been a long time that I have been feeling unhappy….annoyed easily, waves of sadness, not feeling enough, low energy, and trouble sleeping among other things. I don’t have a diagnosis but I think I may be depressed. I just started seeing a therapist last week and since I started to have slight panic attacks? It was really scary, I was overcome with a sense of loneliness and I didn’t want to be in my head….I had to tell myself that I was okay and everything (cont.)
I’m a single mom of a young boy. My child is delayed in speech & receptive skills. I work full time & a full time mom w/ no family help. Im feeling very resentful towards my sons dad. He leaves me with all the responsibility & he is the pop up when convenient dad. I’ve tried communicating and nothing is changing. He doesn’t acknowledge my outreaches to him. I won’t hear from him for a few days. I did to him what he does to me all the time for one day & now he’s being xtra petty. Can any1 relate?
Hi all! I joined my firm a little over four years ago for work life balance as it was a 10 minute drive from my daughter’s school and our home. Our office just relocated and now my commute is one hour each way. This isn’t what I signed up for and leadership is quite unreasonable about WFH flexibility due to my role (even though we did 1.5 years WFH due to Covid). How do I approach that I need some flexibility without putting my role at risk? What would you do?
Why do strollers not have clearly marked open and close buttons? Sometimes I feel like these products were designed by men whose closest interaction to child rearing is keeping artificial plants.
Hi there! Anyone tried to wean a baby off thumb sucking before 1 y.o.? She only does it in her crib and I would have no problem with it if she didn't have constant eczema on her hands from sucking. I give her pacis instead but she spits them out quickly and doesn't bother looking for them bc her thumb is right there. Any advice?
Has anyone here ever gotten a liquid facelift? I’ve never gotten anything before so I’m curious whether this is too aggressive to start with. If you got one, what did it cost? How much upkeep?
Husband is returning to work from leave one week earlier than we planned. I’m feeling upset because I wanted to stave off finding childcare for an additional week. He wants to return to work because he started it right before leave and has been joining calls here and there during leave to stay informed, but wants to get plugged back in. Please convince me/comfort me that he’s doing the right thing

No tips, but that made me think of my husband, who threw a massive tantrum this morning because he spilled a bit of coffee on the table 😬. I guess sometimes life is hard and you’re already full of emotions when the smallest, stupidest thing triggers a disproportionate response. Being a 10 year old is probably difficult, and she might already be feeling a bit sad, or might be in need of some attention and cuddles.. The charm might also have some meaning or superpowers attached that’s a mystery in the adult world 🤷🏻♀️
She doesn’t have that many things in her life that are “hers” and little things can be special. Maybe akin to breaking a super cheap coffee mug that you got from a thrift store that had good memories - nobody else would understand but you’d be upset. Also - crying is so good! As a kid, I was shamed for crying about things my parents didn’t understand and now I can barely cry and it’s so awkward 🤦♀️
This feels pretty straight forward. Ask her about how she is feeling and what is making her sad/cry and tell her it’s okay to be sad/cry when things happen that upset us. Just be there for her in her moment of sad. Studies show that simply being there and allowing a child to feel those feelings makes it easier for them to rebound quicker and move past those feelings.
She’s 10. I assume she picked out that charm or someone special got it for her. I know there is kind of a cache to croc charms for kids these day (🤦♀️). She may be sad because she lost something important to her (because in the grand scheme of life at 10, she doesn’t own that many things that are HERS). Or maybe she’s sad because she feels like she will be made fun of for losing it, or maybe she’s sad about something else and this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I wouldn’t assume in any particular direction. All you can do is offer her a safe space to feel her feelings and to talk about it, if she wants to. Just be there for her, even if it is slightly ridiculous.
If she’s calmed down now and the moment has passed, you can talk to her about it now: “remember earlier how you were crying when you lost your croc charm? It’s okay to cry when you’re upset. Do you want to talk about it at all? I’m always here if you want to talk or just be upset.”
