Tactics to stop the cycle of comparing myself to others and thereby becoming miserable?

You need to start comparing you with yourself. How are you improving on a day to day basis? Are you going to the gym that you wanted? Are you taking steps to achieve your goals? Start framing 3-6 months goals and start working on them. I started doing this close to a year ago and I am happy to say that is has helped me improve my confidence. But above all now I am not jealous of others I genuinely feel happy when someone achieves something great. I feel happy for them cos I realize the hard work it took.

I’m seriously beginning to get tired of my job mainly because of the work culture of this place. I have been working here for a year but lately the energy has been off. Higher ups are constantly belittling their employees and turnover is horrible! I literally feel like my job is at risk, is there anywhere else hiring ? What should I do? And I feel like a lot of blowback is happening because we just unionized

What is the ideal salary for a senior developer with 5 years experience in sap labs.. Bangalore

Hello everyone.

I recently graduated from a data science program and am looking to get some experience in the form of an internship. I had been working full-time as a teacher while also studying full-time so my portfolio isn’t the greatest. My question is, coming from a career that isn’t in tech and with little experience how can I make myself stand out more? More personal projects? More certifications? I’m hoping to get one before the summer.
