Been going on dates with a great guy who is everything I want and is thoughtful and sweet. We have fun together too. I’m reluctant to commit to a relationship with him because he’s 43. I’m 30. We are both looking for something serious. I’ve always imagined myself marrying someone closer to my own age. Is age a silly reason to end things?

Found out I’m 7-8 weeks pregnant. I’m on a high visibility project and my role is critical. I work with very senior execs and my due date is 2 months before go live.

HCL Technologies so I signed a contract for a job with HCL. The contract mention that If I quit before 2 years I will have to pay them $20K because I got a training. The Training supposed to be 6 months long. However, they sent me to the client after 3 weeks. And gave me a job different from what I signed for. My contract job is Developer. Did anyone came to something like this?

Career advice?

I'm a relatively junior data engineer (2yoe), the only other engineer (senior) that trained me left about a 6 months ago and I negotiated a nice raise for the extra responsibilities.

My performance reviews have been stellar, but my manager is starting to look to hire a senior to help me deliver projects as we do lack capacity right now.

I feel like I might be missing an opportunity to ask for a promotion and hire a junior instead.

Any opinions/tips?

Hi.. Has anyone joined HCL recently.. I'm joining tomorrow, do we need to bring any documents other than the offer letter as everything is submitted in the portal and e-signed.. whom do we need to contact for onboarding on the first day ? Do we need to visit the office or will they inform us when to come to collect the laptop & ID? Kindly share your experience..

Any creatives follow this bowl? If so, what is your opinion on sales reps sharing new director/vendor work with you? A warm welcome or a complete annoyance?


Hey AIR team,
How do you confirm a company that approaches you from Europe is legitimate? I have a media company from Turkey asking me to quote some animation for them. They have a website, have given their address (which is an actual address on google maps), and have given phone numbers which I haven't tried yet. I have let them know that if we work together, I'd require 50% up front, 35% midway and 15% before delivery of final elements and they say they're fine with that. Anything else?
