For moms having their second, third etc child during this pandemic, how did you decide who was going to watch/take care of your older children when you were giving birth? I’m struggling through this concept of having someone watch my daughter. I’m not pregnant currently, but this is keeping me from wanting to try for another. I don’t know if any family members will quarantine if need be or if anyone will actually do what we want them too. My husband told me it will be fine but we can’t expect
Hello CGI folks ..I have got selected in Capgemini...All I am getting to hear is that chances of being laid off are quite high in CGI..So, I am confuséd whether I should join or stay back in my current company...please advise
Has anyone taken part of the education reimbursement program? I’ve been here for 4 years and I’m thinking of obtaining my Master’s in Organizational Leadership, but I feel like with this merger, if I started the program and then there are layoffs or too many new hires, or work just becomes overwhelming, I wouldn’t be able to complete my program. I’m already wearing multiple hats when it comes to work. Does anyone have insight on how it works/what it’s like? Thanks in advance!
My kid studies to house music, and I've started listening to it on my commute in haha. Definitely pumps me up to churn through the shift and oddly helps me stay more positive during the trauma we're seeing.
Being an only child really sucks
Have to plan for childcare for when I have to return to work after my first child (we get 12 weeks). Did you hire a live in, someone come to house daily or did you bring to a daycare? How much did you pay and where do you live? Am trying to figure out how much good child care will run me.
Wife and I are both vaxed and boosted. We also just learned she is 6 weeks pregnant. We haven’t told family yet. Now I have Covid and am pretty sure she does too. Both symptomatic. I tested positive, she was negative. I’m losing my shit. Just had to vent that.
No matter how much good feedback I get and how well received my work is by clients, I constantly assume I’m about to be called in to the CEO’s office and fired.
Why is that?
Out of curiosity, is anyone else a single parent on here? I have 50/50 custody, but with all the school activities, on my nights alone I am making up time and working. Leaves little time for personal me time, let alone dating. At this point in my career, it’s not easy to just “coast” and a nanny is not an option. Anyone else in the same boat? Haven’t seen as many single parent executive women around.

Looking for hope & exceptions with this situation my inlaw (German citizen) is in. They came over on Fulbright and now is on O1 but in exile back in Germany. I know it’s a long shot but has anyone been in this situation and transitioned to permanent US residency? They are married to a US citizen and have a kid (born in US). Immigration attorneys are not super helpful on precedent.
I have a 25K loan from my MBA. I paid off 100k whole, after graduation. 3 years ago, I moved my loan from federal to private ( SOFI) account. I recently lost my job. I have applied for unemployment, as the severance that I received will only cover for 2 months. Together my husband and I used to make less than 250k after tax. Now, with a loss of pay , we are going to make less. Do you think I will be eligible for Loan forgiveness?

Hey Gente, Im applying for jobs and I wanted to get others opinion on the race part of the application process. As an indigenous LatinX I worry that if I put indigenous it won’t tick the “diversity” box for the algorithm or recruiters. I work with (not in) the I&D dept at my company and our target recruiting groups don’t include or mention indigenous. Any recruiters here that have insight?

Is Grace Hopper a good convention to attend?
I’ve been interviewing at 2 companies & I got an offer today from 1 & I have an interview with the other on Friday. I think the 2nd company will have higher pay & it’s a better role. I want to keep both options open but I know that the 1st company is trying to get someone started quickly & I don’t want to lose the offer just in case the other falls through. Would it be ok to ask the 2nd company to move my interview up or should I just leave it & hold on accepting the 1st offer?

first of all, congratulations and fantastic work on clearing the interview. Not a lot of people would even have the confidence to attend the interview, let alone clear it.
Lemme tell you buddy, you'll go a long way!
now coming to the point,
alot of the time, the job's a repetitive work of task assigned to you. So i think, its only about getting through for the first week, and i think once you gel up in the work environment, you'll find people to guide and help you(unless its a startup)
Something you should do, is start giving time off work to upskill yourself.
My feeling is you'll get through, but if it does come to a point that you are off boarded, you'll have a new ctc and a designation of senior d.s on your relieving.
Which then you can milk, to find yourself a better opportunity afterwards.
You can always make up things of how you got laidoff.
My feeling, if you've gotten this far.
I think you'll make it through the other part too.
I guess it's all about luck, as in that day in the interview he was mostly asked theoretical questions and wasn't asked to derive any algorithm on paper or code in the interview, or even if they did, they might have asked a python string or other general coding question, presuming it's python,
So it can happen out of luck, but I'm also in the same boat now, joined a new company without much analytical tool knowledge but I've shown multiple years of experience and I'm now watching YouTube videos to understand it..
give me referral, I will support you there
Please try to learn more while working and make notes where you feel you are not understanding things.
In weekends, put extra effort to stay on top of learning and trying out things. Everything will go well :)
Try to keep a positive attitude and things will sort.
Thanks a lot to all of you for your love, guidance, encouragement and wishes. It has definitely boosted my confidence. Hopefully I'll get through this and become an expert data scientist one day.
Bro, everywhere it happens, u r not new.
I am open to provide support from outside for a part of your salary. DM if interested
Even i am facing this same existential dread or imposter syndrome where i feel i dont deserve this salary or niether i want to go back earning mere 3 lpa . i was in Automation qa for 2.6 yr and then jumped to Data Scientist where they didnt use any ML so i had to make my resume a little changes in keywords to claim i have infact used ML exp .so total i have 3.11 yr but expectation are high.
Theoritcal knowledge and where to use which techniques, but lack the expertise so i feel like a dumbfounded at times.
i felt the same!
something ive been advising all my friends, is start applying.
You'll never know until you do.
I applied at close to 70 jobs, got shortlisted for 15.
Cleared 13, got offers from 10.
And now i am earning twice of what i was earning last year.
So keep applying, with more interview experience under your belt you'll get polished and then eventually land yourself a dream job.
I was earning 4.5 LPA with 5YOE
Now earning 10, I'm very sure I would have even got 15 if i kept on trying.
And i had the same mindset of undermining maself, but trust me once you'll start applying and getting cleared, you'll love how much other companies in market value your skills and experience.
ik, i am earning a very small sum. But just wanted share my experience, hope it helps!
Company name? If you don’t mind
I would love to know how did you get into a company by therotical knowledge.
Coming to your question, I think you can learn on the go because all companies give atleast couple of months to settle down
