Sooo… I got an offer that I have accepted. They’re offering 65k and I start June 1st. Today I received another offer but it’s a tentative offer from my dream job. They’re offering 80k but I start June 27 (maybe-they keep pushing the date). Money is becoming really tight right now and I can’t wait any longer. Any advice…?

I would ask the company that’s $80k if they can start you sooner remotely with the condition of you joining in-person once the office space is settled. If they ask a reason, tell them you have a written offer (Job A) but would still like to consider them (Job B) and join their team but their delays are making it difficult to hold things off. If they believe you are the best fit, they’ll make it work. If not, you’ll still have Job A’s offer in hand.

What does "tentative offer" mean? Even if they push the start date, you should have an offer letter in hand.

So the agency they’re going through right now emailed me my offer letter to tentatively start June 27. It might be pushed back. This new start up is settling down in my state and had issues with the office they’re trying to buy. That’s why it got delayed. It’s in the artistic industry so it’s not a typical corporate world.

This might come off as offensive, but it's a genuine question from a man to women (and anyone else). I feel like for a long time talking about sports in the office has kept women out of the small talk, because I've perceived that women don't tend to have the same interest, certain not in golf. I don't want to be talking about things that everyone can't relate to/that aren't inclusive of women, but I also feel like I don't want to assume that women don't like sports. Help.

So I guess starting the day at 7 am is just the norm now? I had to rearrange my workout schedule to accommodate for constant early morning asks. I left that company due to a lack of boundaries and after a month at the new job, the 7 am business is starting again. Why does it have to be like this??? It feels like no matter what time of day or day of the week I try to have for myself, I can’t relax because I always have to be ready.
