Frame it in your purpose and values. You have a keen awareness for how you can and want to contribute to an organization, and the impact that contribution will make. How you go about your work to bring that to life is decidedly guided by your values. With all of that considered (and you’d provide specifics), you felt a real sense of discord between your purpose/values and your role. You knew you had to find another job, which would not only benefit you, but ultimately also the company you left and the new organization you’re going to. Something like that 👍🏼

School system collapsing, I had to be directly involved in all special education issues, review private schooling options and join the board of local SEPAC group to negotiate with school district board. It was too much at some point. So I got a nice severance, organized succession and finished two very complicated ER cases - one in Germany and one in Ireland. Also, I setup a new system for my son, and that’s going on smoothly. So I’m ready for a new gig. I have severance and health insurance paid through February, and also I got my unused 280 hours of PTO paid, so I have some time. How would you recommend me to explain reasons of why I’m not employed at the moment? I want to start my search reaching out to executive recruiters and venture capital firms.

When did you start implementing a schedule for your baby? Mine is 5 weeks old right now, and all of the advice I’ve received so far is to ensure he’s eating regularly (every 2-3 hours, per the pediatrician) and otherwise follow his cues for an ear-wake-sleep rhythm. However, I’m eager to implement a daily schedule to have more predictability and hopefully get longer stretches of sleep at night. When can I start this and what’s the best way to begin?

Do you think the workplace just isn’t too accepting of sexual orientation for always assume the gender roles or am I just completely overthinking this?

Kind of nervous - never done a case interview and feel a little underprepared
