People always told me to network and reach out to people for roles. But I've never found anything from reaching out. Every role I've gotten has found me. Anyone else have this experience?

if roles are finding you you must be a jedi networker and just not know it--how else would people know to reach out to you for projects that fit your capabilities?

Hi Ladies, I have a question for those of you who own a home with your partner. How much did you contribute to the downpayment of the home? (Percentage or exact amount). I’m in my early 30s & from a low income family so I supported myself through college & only graduated 5 years ago. Due to living in a HCOL city, bills, & a mediocre salary (I work in an internal role), I feel like if I met a successful guy (single now), I’d feel inadequate for a LTR due to lack of savings for a mortgage. —>

Remote Onboarding question: I joined my company a little over two months ago, and I’m in a remote role. This is my first time onboarding remotely as I started at my last company pre-pandemic. Honestly, I’ve found it lonely so far. I’ve been trying to be outgoing and meet with everyone I can, but it so far feels like I have not been included as a full member of the team. Any advice on how to approach relationship-building? Any secrets to unlocking remote onboarding?
