I felt confused when I saw Buttigieg’s name on the speaker list at DNC convention and no name of Yang anywhere. (Pointing PB out because he was mayor of South Bend, elected with very few votes). The speaker list was long.. so many people yet not a single Asian American was there. I was so confused. And some people said Asians are not in their head because Asians do not fit their box. I am glad he said something about it and got added but feel not so great he was omitted initially.. meh 🙄
Hi! Anyone know what the range is for a early talent recruiter with 1 YOE in fully cycle recruitment? Based in Toronto, Canada. Please let me know if commission/ incentives are common.
I left an agency and worked in a small studio for 2 years. Now I am thinking to get back to bigger company. My biggest fear is to get along with colleagues. People in agency tend to be outspoken, eloquent, outgoing, funny while I am not confident in talking to people, or socialise in general. I need longer time to get closer with new people. And I find some social gathering meaningless. I knew I have to change, what kind of advice will you give me?
I would like to know what my colleagues' experience has been with methods to eliminate external parasites such as fleas and ticks. What would you say is the best option for dogs and cats? and why?

Looking for recommendations on where to celebrate my 30th birthday alone and lowkey within the US or a 5-6 hour flight away. My current ideas so far,
1. London - I really want to get a bespoke suit made in Stratton St. I like the british styled suits.
2. Key west - scuba diving and enjoying my time on the beach.
Both locations I will likely stay for 5-6 days. Any additional options would be much appreciated. Based out of DMV.

Is 55 - 60k a livable salary to live in NYC. This is for a junior art director position with their location in So ho. I know that salary wouldn’t work in Manhattan, unless I’m wrong, so I’m guessing I would have to live in a different borough?
Skill : Performance Testing
YOE : 8.1+
CTC : 12.4LPA+(fixed)
Current Company : PwC India
I know I am underpaid, but my leaders are forcing me to work on multiple projects, for which I am getting anxiety even before working or denying.
What is the solution? Provided I don't want to switch & increase salary just to provide more tax to govt or the work may increase more too.
I need 100% job stability, which only PwC can provide.
Genuine advice needed!!

All politics aside (pls pls pls not on this thread 🙇🏻♀️) Mulan wasn’t a great movie imo 💔 It felt like a very western perception of filial piety and ancient China in general. The use of Chinese characters was low key cringe at times. If y’all are interested, the original Mulan ballad is much more empowering than this movie
Getting the gf a Dyson air wrap for a gift. She’s mentioned she wanted to curl her hair but her mom’s never taught her how. Can ya’ll share some tips, videos, or product that helps keep the curl throughout the day that I can get pass on? She’s a beaut with medium length straight, thin hair and colors often. I’ve been trying to research but a lot of the gals have the thick Korean hair which isn’t applicable.
Any help is appreciated 😞

Seen a lot of commentary on here on how Asians don’t typically support one another professionally compared to other minorities (e.g. African, Indian) and ‘groups’ (e.g. white men).
I think a lot of what drives it is the way Asian parents talk about their kids amongst other parents like it’s a competition. Perhaps my childhood experience was isolated, but I don’t think it is.
I think it’s a massive shame, and we should do better to support one another.
