Figure out the best way for you to take notes. It’s hard to rely on memory when a baby takes up so much brain space now. Good luck!

💯 this! The first few months back after leave are so foggy (if breastfeeding, that tends to make it even worse). Highly recommend taking lots of good notes to remember stuff later. Those first few weeks though really should be spent building relationships and seeing how everything works, lots of observation and question asking. Give yourself a little grace too. Coming back from leave is hard!

Be a good listener, be helpful and eager to learn about your new role. Figure out what your routine will be but don’t overdo it.

Asking for friend living in APAC: They have 2.5 YOE as a Business Analyst post-UG, been unemployed for the last 5 months, and have just been offered two roles.

It seems taking internships after finishing school is normal and not just during summer time for students. Which role would you suggest they take?

I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?

Hi HR Forum. I’m working with leadership on metrics for hiring. These would be for our retail locations for seasonal employees that involve a fast ramp up/hiring time every year during a specific hiring window. Anyone have experience in what metrics are best to show: successes, failures, areas of concern, source of hire, etc. data for c-suite? We have this staffing funnel that is too convoluted & complex that doesn’t have a great dashboard. Would love to hear how you’re tracking.
