I am having a lots of interviews for a first year association position, but unfortunately any concrete offers. I am thinking two are the reasons why: maybe they do not like my accent and how I speak ( English is my second language) or I am asking to much when they ask about the salary range. What are the other reasons that you may mention why a person is refused after the interview? Do you answer when they ask about the salary range? Do you find helpful any sources for I interview skills? Thanks

In a tough spot. Recently joined a company and I regret it. I left consulting for better wlb but I’m now working the same amount. I am interviewing for a role within a university which sounds more easy going. If I leave my current company, I’d have to pay back my sign on bonus (5k). But I just feel so stressed out all the time and was recently diagnosed with depression & had to go on medication (already in therapy). I don’t know what to do. Do I stick it out? Do I continue to interview?

Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!
Is this place for gender/sexual minorities as well? I'm a gay transgender man, but as I'm white, I'm not sure if I belong here.

Traveling next week for a client after a long time. Booked a Delta Main Cabin ticket through concur. Now I am trying to upgrade to 1st using my points but the delta app shows all premium seats as unavailable. Usually it did let me change it in the past but not this time. Have Delta policies changed for ticket upgrades from Main Cabin to Comfort+ or 1st? I recall all DL Main tix were eligible for upgrade as a additional purchase option.
