Curious of non clinical salary in the dental field. I work in not quite ‘high end’ dental as insurance specialist. I am also front desk manager (tho not office manager). I was hired to do insurance and in the 2 months since I started I have been given a dozen more responsibilities. Insurance verification, front desk, answering phones, taking payments, training, all IT work (which I’m not even good at but I’m the only person under 50 in the office so it falls on me)
Hi everyone - I’m a Workplace Experience Lead who is transitioning out of their position at the end of the month with almost 10 years’ of office management experience in the startup world.
I want to pivot into project management (I’ve done multiple office buildouts and moves where I’ve used the waterfall methodology to complete projects - without knowing it!) but I do not have any certifications. I’m taking courses to earn skills badges to put on my resume but how else can I navigate this?
I’ll be joining JPMC in September. Will HR be sending any email / instructions with regards to procurement of laptop and other wfh equipment? Or do I need to get in touch with the hiring manager before day 1 to check? JPMorgan Chase
I got fired for being late 3 times and not nailing my first presentation. I feel like an idiot and now waiting on job replies is super stressful.
1YOE in tech consulting and former venture capital intern. Any advice to transfer to finance (specifically data roles or portfolio associate in private equity or hedge fund)? I know it’s a little rare but saw some positions favor SQL/Python/AWS. Would any technical certification (AWS, Azure, Snowflake, etc) promote such opportunities?

Is anyone new to the city (or for whatever reason), doesn’t have a set friends group, and not going anywhere for the holiday open to the idea of having a Thanksgiving dinner or brunch at a restaurant together? Most of my friends are in late 20s but I am 34F and open to hanging out with any one in 20s-40s :)

I’ve been watching re runs of SATC during the lockdown. I used to like this show but recently have found how dumb and demeaning the dialogues and story line is. Like when Carrie is dating a politician and asks her friends to vote for him “because I’m sleeping with him”. They sound so nagging and so brain dead. Funny how I didn’t think that 20 years ago
My partner is male, I am female. He condescends me on a daily basis, says I want to include females in campaigns to “fill a quota”, etc... Where do I begin. What’s the best strategy to deal with this?

I’ve been actively interviewing for a few weeks. I’m an experienced, intelligent female who speaks well and has the resume to back it up. I am aware that I’m also good looking. How have other women handled interviewing, getting projects, or promotions where you felt looks have come into play? Have you had different responses when a man was the decision maker vs a woman? Thought Starter: I used to work in fashion and we’d always that women dress for other women, not men.

I was on a job (freelance) working with a weasel of an AP. He stole all my contacts that I have been curating over years, who I’ve worked with, are loyal to me& convinced my boss that I wasn’t needed.

How do you deal with a coworker trying to push their work on you?
When I started at this company there wasn't much work assigned to me so the office manager/accountant (small company) would have me help her with this major excel document daily. It's very time consuming and requires use of a database-- in short. But can usually be finished by noon if done properly.
About a month after I was hired my boss found out she was giving me work. Which I was unaware he didn't know about, and reprimanded her for it. My workload has increased tremendously after my first month and she was still having me help her with the documents.
I just overheard her step into our bosses office saying that her workload is too much and that she needs help (most likely mine since I'm the only other employee trained to do so. My workload has become pretty insane most days, I don't have room in my schedule to provide her with help but I'm worried my boss will ask me to help to appease her.
My boss rarely comes into the office, and on the days he's out this coworker watches soap operas and takes loud personal calls for the entirely of the day.
How do I approach this if my boss asks me to help her with this task? She clearly has enough time to work on them herself.
I feel really bad writing this but have any other female CDs noticed a recent increase in the number of female juniors demanding exceptional favours under the guise of feminism?
Realizing how truly hard it is to have a relationship and be in advertising. 12 hour days and weekends is rough on the personal life. Anyone have any advice? Is it truly possible to have it all?
Just a reminder: They are not your “family”. And yes, you are 100% expendable. Never forget.
New female Executive Director at our office (15-person shop) likes to call the staff “hun” or “dear” and occasionally “babe.” Makes me feel so uncomfortable & unprofessional. Is it me? What can I say?

That’s screwed up. More from the lack of trust and the lack of respect of your personal boundaries. It shows lack of consent. I don’t think I’d be able to forgive it either.
Years ago an old bf fessed up to reading my phone msgs while I was in the shower, after feeling bad about it. The shock and feeling violated were incredible and with me to this day. He said it was because I had gotten some texts during a movie we were watching that I read and replied to but didn't tell him who it was so he got jealous. I couldn't believe it. The trust was broken forever. We dated a while longer but it was never the same. It's also made me a little paranoid about these things with others...
How did you find out? Not okay. Someone who invades privacy won’t stop doing it. He needs to find security, and as long as he seeks it externally it won’t last.
A wise lady once told me, “The root of all problems is insecurity and lack of communication.” What he did to you is terrible—but it’s a reflection of how he feels. And he’s insecure about something. Try digging and see if what you find is worth staying in the relationship.
Good luck OP!
I know everybody has fears and baggage and trauma and I don’t want to be insensitive to that. But I’m also not a doormat either and I don’t know if I’m able to trust this process now. :(
I don’t think this is something that you two can get over. It seems he has a lot of work to do in therapy and for you, I think this is a huge violation of your privacy and I think it breaks trust beyond healing. My opinion is to break up with him, if he did this while you live apart, once you move in together.....
That’s awful....what was the reason? Maybe he’s desperate to get inside your head
Time to show him the door. You can unring that bell.
Like you said there’s a lack of trust but have you tried to talk about why he’s so insecure or does he shut down? Why did he feel the need to do that? There’s an underlying reason that you guys can talk through and address. Not justifying what he did is right and not telling you to believe him but he was honest about doing a terrible thing to you and worth hearing the why. I would want to know even on the brink of breaking up with him.
Couples therapy? What he did was horrible. Whether or not you can forgive it is a choice you make. It's not an "if you can", it's an "if you want to".
Therapy might also be beneficial for him to help resolve whatever security issues he clearly has. There may also be things he needs from you but doesn't know how to ask you for to help curb the behavior.
Either way, it's whether or not you want to try and save it, or just walk away.
^ @LB agreed. So unfortunate because I love him but I don’t know how I can feel safe taking this leap with him now. Breaks my damn heart.
@Art Director, totally understandable. And, honestly, in my opinion, now that he has done this, every time you leave the house, take a shower, fall asleep before he does, I think you will worry about what else he is snooping into... I really don’t think this is healthy for you. As much as it hurts now, you are preventing pain in the future by not being with him. Wishing you good luck!!
He told me because he felt bad about it, that’s how I found out.
Did he want to talk about something he read?
Thank you, everybody.
It came from a deep place of insecurity and self sabotage. We’ve been discussing getting an apartment together and I think shit was getting too real and he was hoping to find proof I was cheating or doing something that reassured his insecurity and anxiety. He didn’t find shit. But now I don’t know if I trust that he’s really working on his issues. He’s in therapy but apparently that hasn’t helped much in the last year.
He’s probably trying to find out what you really think of him. Or if you’re interested in someone else. It’s an insecurity thing I suspect...
