I want to leave my job as an IT Auditor- but I fear that “IT Audit skills” are not reasonably transferable to other jobs. I’ve barely been doing this a year but I am not a fan of the tik and check of audit in general. Im not even sure what I’d want to do- any career advice or idea of a new role?

Why would the staffing agency (who got me my current job) be reaching out to me after a year? A little back story, I got my foot in the door at my company through a staffing agency. It was a freelance to permanent role. If they ended up liking me, I would become a perm employee. They liked me after ONLY a month and I was permanently hired. But now, almost 1 year later, the staffing agency is asking if we’re hiring and if I can give them the name of my manager for my file? Is that sketchy?

Hello Fishbowl - A talented senior-level AD friend in Orange County got laid off before the holidays -- she does have healthcare experience. Does anyone know of opportunities she could scope out?

If you work at a small agency in NYC, could you tell me what your monthly health insurance premiums are for families? I'm at a small agency in NYC and the health benefits for a family are almost prohibitively expensive, ~1,500/mo with a high deductible. Would love to know if we're competitive or not and if not, share that info with our HR and bosses.

I am a level expert people watcher and conversation overhearer.
Absolutely. A 30 min lunch time walk will take you to so many places around the world. Hard not to feel that exhilaration.
Central Park. Several studies prove that nature enhances creativity.
I try to keep up with museum exhibits and go to the indie movie houses like Film Forum, or just walk around/take yourself out for a drink or dinner and strike up a conversation with the bartender. I know I could be doing more since you can pretty much go see a Broadway show or jazz at Lincoln Center anytime.
I could do better about going to museums, concerts, events. Great suggestions! 🐠🐟🐡
Museums get old really quick. I walk to work really early when the streets aren't full of tourists. I go to the comedy cellar and see Aziz do a surprise set to try a bit that the crowd doesn't laugh at. I see Paul Haggis, Julie Ann Moore, Judd Apatow, and other famous people just going about their day. Fuck sight seeing. Just walk on the streets and you'll see something different every day. But here's the thing: none of this is a need to "find" inspiration. It's just you living here. And when you live here, inspiration finds you.
I walk half way home. (30ish minutes) the architecture, the people, the sounds, the accents. I love it.
Streaking through the quad.
People watching for sure. Checking out architecture and street art. Taking a long winding walk through a neighborhood I don't know.
You can find inspiration in the most mundane things in NY- like watching a couple interact with each other in the subway (can be pretty amusing) or sitting on the Met steps and watch the hip hop street dancers, to the changing colors of the seasons at Central Park to just walking through different neighborhoods...
