I fear I might be delusional and people just pretend everything's normal but talk about me among themselves.
I am now convinced that I have a few dear friends with this trait. Explains SO MUCH.
The oscillation from friend to foe. The alternation from warmth to isolation. Completely underestimating how I feel. The feeling of never being able to do anything right. Wow. Textbook.
I thought I was the problem. But I’m not the problem. Say hello to a healthier me from this point on.
So thankful for my other very healthy relationships.
Hello - I am interested in an entry level associate for PwC in the US. Could anyone provide me with a referral? Thanks.
I want to know from HR or senior management that do you offer less to female candidate provided she has same skills as a male candidate?
Does in IT industry gender doesn't impact compensation?
When should I start applying to switch SSL?
I started July 15 this year and already experienced one busy season of 1065 compliance. From the looks of it, internal transfer to MA or International is almost impossible and the best way would be to jump ship.
When should I start applying?
I'm new here. My FAR exam credit expires today and just to try my luck, I emailed my state board examiners if it's possible to further extend the credit of my FAR exam as I wasn't able to sit for the remaining three due to travel restrictions. They replied to me and requested proof of inability to travel. Do you know by any chance if they grant credit extension? Thank you.

Could be a different bowl I should post this in but does anyone have recs on ways to monitor your monthly spending? I have mint and personal capital but I kind of want to still use excel. I might go the route of pulling all transactions from mint and exporting into excel but wasn’t sure if anyone had a better way or can point me to resources that’d help me with this
Does the recruitment team check the applications from the careers portal or they only take the refferals? Applied for various positions in the IT division but not getting calls. Any suggestions?
I’m torn. I have a chance after 10 years to finally get in a district, but as a para. I was thinking it would be a good foot in the door to be promoted later on. Is that true. I also have an offer for a lead prek teacher at a daycare center. Idk what to do. 😩
Does Thoughtworks provide any work from home allowance? It's not mentioned in the offer letter.
Worked 40 hours already since Sunday morning. It’s only Tuesday night. I’m thankful for the work. But I’m taking the first bus back to client-side.
Partner just graduated college and is insisting on saving her income instead of contributing it to 401k as stocks are too “risky”. I know it’s not my money but this sounds like a recipe for deep regret in the future. Thoughts?
Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?

I love my wife and I love my two kids. But all we do lately is bicker and fight about how the kids have terrible sleep habits and she doesn’t want to do anything about it, and it’s eating away at our marriage. Today was the worst Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had. Our intimate life is struggling because we never ever get alone time. Again, I love my kids more than anything, but some times I just miss how simple life was when we didn’t have children. Anyone here gone through this and have advice?

Due to Covid-19, I’m having to change my living situation soon. Does anyone know of any tips to find a subletter in NYC quickly? I have posted to most platforms and discounted price to no avail.

For my fellow ADHD/ADD 🐠 : Anyone here have experience trying Adderall XR (extended release) and Adderall IR (immediate release). I’m super curious about the pros/cons you experienced with each, as well as how your dosage changed when you switched from one type to the other. (Reevaluating my meds as I get ready to return to the office so thanks in advance for the feedback!!)
I'm starting to notice this more now that we live together but I don't think I am mentally stimulating enough for my SO (see details)

I was wondering will consultant fee’s also be slashed due to the upcoming depression/recession? We’re they slashed in 2008?

I have $500 to spend on a remote working set up. Want to purchase a monitor and a printer. Any recommendations for either in $200-$300 range? The printer does not have to be heavy duty by any means, I will not print that much generally speaking.
I know with WFH there is really nowhere else to go, but work has been driving me crazy and I haven’t taken any time off since February. Would it be unreasonable of me to ask for a week off in the next few weeks to celebrate my SO’s birthday and to just decompress? For background, I’m part of a very small in-house team which makes it harder for me to not feel guilty for taking time off. I also have been dreading asking my boss this question and feel like if I don’t ask now, it’ll never happen...
How much do lawyers make? If you were to compare for instance someone in finance vs law at the same age, say 35, who makes more?
I have been struggling with juggling work and caregiving for my elderly parents who are at the point where they need constant help, however they refuse to believe they need to move to assisted living. I am struggling with keeping up with work and trying to have some semblance of a life outside of work and caring for them. I understand that caring for small kids can feel like this, but this is different. There is no moment of joy, it’s all kind of depressing. Looking for some wisdom of others.
Has Fishbowl heard of the Shopping Cart Theory? Share what you think may be reasonable exceptions, commenters pointed out most of mine were not. Perhaps the only exception are extreme emergencies.
I have a desk job where I’ll legit sit for 9hrs each day. I used to have hobbies on the computer, like video editing, writing code for side projects, sketching out app ideas. Lately I can’t stand to be at my desk anymore after work. Been watching too much tv instead. More so seems like it’s due to being in the same location for so many hrs each day. Interested in hearing thoughts about separating work desk from personal desk, and other hobbies you picked up to get away from the screen
