Spouse is a fed civ looking to transition to private. Anyone have any experience with which companies are the most flexible/ accommodating when it comes to military PCS? Or would you recommend they stick it out on the civ side?

Companies don’t care where candidates come from or pivoting from for as long as they have the skills and expertise to do the job. Not sure what you mean by “accommodations”. Are you asking for special privileges? Less hours for more pay? Less qualifications for more pay?

Lots of remote work and work from home jobs nowadays. Shouldn’t be a problem.

Lot’s of government contracting companies accommodate PCS, including mine. He should have no issues.

Would love to chat with you about this. I’m an active duty army wife with a small child and came over from fed work. Several companies did not react well to my request but a handful were very accommodating and even had an internal network of staff in my position. We went full remote with a travel agreement in my contract.

Industry is far more flexible than gov in my experience. You’d be surprised

Good Morning Fishies! Would love to get advice on a situation I’m currently in.

I hastily applied for a job as I stumbled upon it at the last minute before the application deadline closed. A week later, the same job posting was posted again, but this time without a deadline in the job description.

Should I withdraw my original application and resubmit with a more refined application? Or leave as is and hope for the best?? Thank you!

Hi, I started my Digital Marketing business about 7-8 months ago with only 2.7 lakh rupees. I've been facing losses every month since then. I understand that I'm failing because I am working alone. I need to know what I'm doing wrong with my pitch and my approach to onboard new clients.

Also I am open to discussing partners, marketers, and investors even though I have nothing extraordinary to offer right now. But I have a really good brand, story, and grit to make it big with the right help.

Looking for suggestions.
I'm a scotch whisky drinker, pretty much exclusively, apart from a few select Irish bottles. Live in Ireland. So go tos would be Springbank, Kilkerran, Laphroaig, Caol Ila, Arran, Highland Park, Glengoyne...

On many visits to the US I've tried various Bourbons. Never very successful. Always seemed overly sweet and syrupy to my palette.

But I'm sure there are great choices out there.

What would you suggest as quality American whiskies for a scotch fanatic?
