OKAY. So I heard my boss (VP) telling his peer that he is letting go off a female employee because she is pregnant and her absence affects the project delivery.
Are there any single moms in this group? How do you cope with juggling a career as an attorney and being a full time solo parent with limited support? To what extent do you just hide your personal life/situation from work? Do you feel like fellow attorneys and specifically the partners look down on you because of this? Feeling really down about this lately. Have managed to hide it so far but I feel like it will come out eventually and want to brace myself for the professional fallout.
What are the contents of experience letter when you leave any organization? Does it include mention of maternity leave and continuous 30+ days paid leaves?
Age discrimination is an unfortunate fact of life. I don't know if it is a good idea to highlight my experience... which shows I have been around for a long time... or downplay it so I appear younger and more in touch with our client base

👋🏻 New mom here. I’m seeing a lot of comments about parents opting for “no sleepover” rules. Is this because of Covid, or is this a new thing? I went to sleepovers all the time as a kid and just wondering what reasons beyond a case-by-case basis would be to have this rule? Not judging, just genuinely curious.
Hi folks, just wondering what my fellow project managers are making? (Rate & Yrs of exp please)
I am a project manager with the strong desire to transition into product management but I’m feeling a little discouraged. Every opportunity I come across mentions 7-10 years experience. I just started training for the Google UX certification with hopes that may better prepare me. Any other suggestions? Words of advice on how to best make this transition?
Thanks in advance!
Have professional photos coming up for my promotion - need tips on what to wear to look serious but with personality!

Currently live in DC and am graduating from UVA Darden next May. Looking to move to Boston and switch from federal consulting to commercial consulting if any firms are hiring. 11 YOE and my most recent experience is implementation of a organizational transformation project for the Department of Defense.
What would you do? I’m 7w pregnant and don’t want to tell anyone yet. Have an upcoming shoot (6 hour plane ride) and agency said anyone can opt out for coronavirus fears. I’d hate to miss it. Help!
Newly pregnant (~8wks) and unable to take my ADD medication unless I “think the risk of not taking it is more harmful to me than taking it could be to the baby”. (How do you even evaluate that?! Every study I’ve looked at is inconclusive.)
My 12hr workdays are becoming 14-16 without medication and it’s brutal when combined with morning (read: all day) sickness. I’m exhausted. If not for the 2wk break we’re on, idk what I’d do. Any advice from other ADD moms who have been through it??
Hope everybody is having a great weekend and for people who are not so having a great time like me and facing some difficulties in life, please know that it is just a phase and it too shall pass like the good ones and yes talking to your mother might help she has the greatest strength.
Also can I request you all to please give me 11 likes as I am new and I am not able to start a chat. I am in a great need to find a job.
I will be really grateful if your guys could help 🙂☮️
Sometimes I attend city meetings for new housing proposals, bike lanes, bus lanes, outdoor dining, etc. Quite literally 100% of the people speaking in opposition to these projects are Baby Boomers, who typically complain that they are going to lose their free parking spaces. Is there some particular reason this generation seems to be opposed to almost everything, and obsessed with parking?

Hi all, I’d love to hear from PR/Comms folks about the process of transitioning from agency to an in-house role. What kind of chance does a PR pro with ~7 years of solid experience across CPG and hospitality brands, including a mix of global agency work and smaller boutique firms, have at going in house? Do you typically need more experience before going in house? Would be great to hear about various experiences from those that have made the transition. Thanks!

When I originally was looking to get into a big Tech company, I decided to get my foot in the door my best option would be to become an admin.

Any advice on how to get others to bet on me/advocate for my career development with skills that I have but do not have to opportunity to use everyday?
