Small price item! I wouldn’t give a gift card. Wine is on the right track but he doesn’t drink. Just a little thing to go with a thoughtful card

What do you mean by small? Size or price? An Apple Watch is small. cuff links? Cologne. Belt, wallet.

Flask of whisky

Good gourmet hot chocolate is nice this time of year.

Good hand lotion, gloves, a moleskin note pad... Agee it is all about tying in that personalized card.

Software engineers who have changed tech stack in the past:
1. How were you able to show experience if the job requirements state that they need experience in that specific stack (example 3-5 years)
2. How were you able to justify in the interview that without experience you'll be able to contribute to the team
I know as an engineer tech stack doesn't matter but mid level job roles have requirements that they need experience in that stack/framework

Ladies, I am so down right now and could use some advice. I was at Deloitte for almost 5 years and started to an analyst, was promoted to consultant and was on track for SC when one bad project and a really awful manager derailed things for me. I went industry and did marketing which I liked a lot, but could not sustain the pace and demands when my team was cut in half due to Covid. I was working the job of two to three people and the workload quadrupled. I worked nonstop. (Cont’d)
