thinking on some trips to either UK or Singapore/Japan. Wondering if there's a better approach
Has anyone ever made the transition from university recruiting to regular recruiting? I work in tech and don’t think it would be that much of a change but now that my life is settling down, I’m wondering if the travel will be too much once I start a family.
If you’ve made the change, I’d love to hear your experience!
I am in the customer service and sales side of travel insurance, and I am looking for a new job, possibly in another field. A much larger company purchased us 2 years ago, and over the last 6 months I have lost 2 designations, one as an advocate, which was my most rewarding. I was told that it had nothing to do with my performance. Any suggestions on how to obtain a position in another area? Such as going from strictly customer service and sales to advocate and claims? Thanks

Looking for a Microsoft referral. Could someone help me out. Preferably within the ATL office.
My husband and I had a fall out with his parents a few weeks ago. They said some pretty nasty things to him regarding him not wanting to go to his brother’s wedding during a pandemic and his mom uninvited me from the shower. He still wants them to come visit our daughter social distancing of course because they still travel everywhere. I am on the fence because I am still bitter about how they have treated him and me regarding this virus and how we have done everything we can to keep safe...

Got approval to hire a new admin/paralegal for my transactional group. Firm isn’t doing a great job advertising the post and I think the best pitch we have is “Give us two years making around $40k before law school, work here during law school, and you’ll have a job paying $190k already set up for when you graduate.” Any suggestions how to find this person? I’m in DC.
Anyone have a technique for dealing with a creative that has lost their cool in high stress situations?

Everything is we have to!!! We have to do this!

Putting in my notice tomorrow. Could not have come at a worst time. I’m the last associate left in the group (4 partners now).

Curious from agency leaders, what’s the better strategy? Pay cuts/long term salary freezes, but limiting layoffs as much as possible VS. having furloughs/layoffs and being able to provide promotion and raise opportunities.
I’ve experienced both at different agencies, and have been saved and burned by both sides. Would love to know everyone’s thoughts!
I am seeing this status since last week. Neither my talent coach nor recruiter has contacted my and not even responding to calls/mails. How long does they need to confirm if i will get the offer letter?Accenture
I have my review coming up and I was invited to bring comments about my job satisfaction/comments about the firm. We don’t have a clear maternity leave policy so I was thinking of saying that I’d like to see some clarity with respect to the maternity/family leave policy and I’d be happy to help craft it. Is that too risky? I have a pretty good relation with the two partners (both males) that I’d be speaking with. I hope this also expresses that I see my future at the firm.
