Need some advice. Would you take a contract role for a big tech company? Went through a full cycle of interviews but another candidate was selected for the role. The senior manager then emailed me directly asking if I was interested in a contract position. Not sure what to do….
Hello, I am looking for ergonomic office chair recommendations that are designed/suitable for the female stature. A lot of the chairs I've looked into have a seat depth, or height that is too big for my 5'4 frame. Also can't afford shelling out thousands on the HM Aeron :(
Wondering if anyone in this bowl can recommend a decent chair with back support that works for a shorter person...and hopefully won't break the bank.
What are your thoughts on someone trying to build wealth off of their grandparent because their own parents were incapable and both grandparents had to step in financial and were forced to pickup the slack. Currently grandma does not like when her grandchild asks for money despite the grandchild has a degree, own apartment, no car note and great savings. The grandchild wants to leave her apt to live rent free with her grandma and buy multi unit home and go to med school. Is this normal?

Have virtual interviews tomorrow and Friday (both with same company) - I know 150% if I got an offer, I would not accept. Had a ton of coaching meetings this week regarding a different offer I’ve been considering and I don’t want to leave my current place of work. Cancel tomorrow and Friday interviews or no cancel and potentially get an offer and decline? (I am fairly busy so biggest opportunity cost is my time and having to wfh to do video interviews during the workday)

Depends on the firm and the state. MA has some laws preventing a bunch of disclosures so employers here will basically just verify that you worked there. Also depends on HR vs a reference manager. If they are calling someone you worked with as a reference it's totally different than an employment verification with HR.
HR should just say that you worked at the firm and the dates of employment. So I wouldn't worry about the manager.
Just don't use them as a reference lol
Most firms will only confirm dates of employment and no further information.
Unless you sign allowing otherwise, firms typically will only disclose length of employment, ending position, and active/inactive status.
