How do I decide which health plan to choose? I am on my parents HMO, but am offered a PPO plan at work. The HMO sucks in terms of finding specialists that are in network, but when I do, everything is a 25 dollar co-pay. The work PPO eliminates that issue but obvi I have to pay the premium on it. I thought about keeping both, but have heard that having two insurance plans is not worth the headache. I don’t know how to decided which is best and any advice is appreciated.
Whats’s the ideal CV length for UK mid-level roles (4-5 YoE) to engage recruiters?
Is 1 page containing punchy & concise XYZ points preferred in the UK over 2 pages inc. a bit more details of projects/ tasks?
I feel like my 1 page CV is pretty good but (lack of) responses make me think otherwise.

I had a client round interview (Europe team) 5days ago for Markets Project Manager role which appeared to be last round. First round done with India team. Good, detailed discussion.
No response yet from HR. Whats the typical post interview process at EY GDS? Do they take this much time usually? How’s the work culture and working with offshore colleagues?
Why we use 3 different applications(skype,zoom,teams) for chat and calls?
It's wastage of money for the firm.
I personally feel MS Teams is best and can be one stop solution.
Reason: a) all chat history, b) good connectivity, c) compact and user friendly UI etc.

AWS Professional Services Principal level salary? I think it’s level 7. I gave an expected range of $325-350k. I’m at $250 now. Was I in the right ballpark? Or did I undersell myself.

Does FIRE require you to live on a mattress and share a room with 3 people while eating ramen noodles everyday or am I OK to spend on basic comforts and delay retirement by Iike a year? I see a lot of FIRE people on instagram bragging about their thriftiness, wondering if it’s the standard. I don’t think I’ll enjoy life as much in my 30s or 40s as a Millionare as I do in my 20s as a decently off normie. 27years old, 300k TC

Hello, I am from IBM Consulting and have an interview with IBM Software Labs in a couple of hours. What can I expect in the interview? Is it too tough to crack?
I am a data engineer and I have got an offer where work is to feed the data to the machine learning model.
The interview was based on data engineering concepts only.
Will it be easy to learn ML related stuff as I already have couple of years of experience in Data Engineering?
I think I'm getting played by HR.
I have cleared all their rounds, I have agreed for the CTC as well.
HR says that they will release the offer letter today itself. I waited but nothing.
Again the same thing "Today you will get but nothing"
Offer letter approval is pending with some manager in America.
Hiring manager has to get approval form CEO.
Friends am I getting played here? can I trust them? I feel something is going on inside.
