There's a $200 golf networking event at some country club. Considering how important playing golf was in my previous company I'm inclined to go - but it's so expensive and then I have to get to the place which will be commuter train tickets plus an approximately $25 Lyft *each way*. Plus I think I might have to buy special golf clothes.
Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)
Thoughts on the drive to Santa Fe/Taos? I know the flights are quick, but my kids really want to go on a road trip and have been asking to take ski lessons so I figure it would cover both.
Does anyone else have the problem that their curriculum does not meet the standards or goals and is either too hard or too easy. I spend so much money buying lessons off of TPT, buying books or spending all weekend writing my own for 5 subjects. I’m exhausted.
Hi 👋🏻 I have five years work experience, 2 are in consulting at EY London and I really want to move to the UAE (I speak Arabic fluently) would appreciate it if anyone can send a referral (happy to give you free Arabic lessons 😂)
Would love to hear your negotiation wins and fails, and lessons learned. One of my learnings is simply to ask. If you don't ask the answer is definitely no. My example was asking for additional equity. I got back a no, but was offered a signing bonus.
Am I a bad teacher for putting on holiday movies the last few days before break? My class is way past being able to focus with Christmas so close now, and I'm grateful for the quiet time to prep. I see other teachers still doing lessons but I feel like what's the point? Their headspace isn't with me and I don't expect it to be, they're excited. Frankly, I'm excited for the time off too!

Anyone have good lessons on disease spread, kind of like the cdc zombie appocolipse scenario?
Welcome! This group is all things 4th grade! We can discuss lesson issues, lesson help and suggestions, as well as any other subjects that will help keep us 4th grade teachers sane.
So I have a rememdial algebra 1 class with 8 kids. I also have 1 hr and 20 mins with them. These kids have done the same subject 1-2 times. Any ideas, resources, or lessons that dont make the class feel repetitive to a prior year?
Any practitioners offering lessons to others? I'd love feedback on Persona - https://getpersona.app
Anyone know if I can bring private swim coaches in the DC public pools? OR where can I learn swimming? It’s been so hard to find lessons :(
I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.
I’m trying to leave AWM tax and go to another PA firm. Problem is most firms I’ve talked to want me to join their AWM practice and then transfer to another tax group. Any tips on pushing back without losing job opportunities? AWM is just pure hell and I need to get out.

Looking to transition from an electrical engineer (wide range of experience in low and medium voltage systems) to FPGA or embedded system engineer. While I really do enjoy the design aspect of power systems, I've always leaned more towards the software side of EE and I like working closely with hardware. I have experience through college and personal projects, but I'm not sure how going from multiple years of power system design to a more hardware/low level design will pan out.
I never have good dreams when I sleep. Only average ones or nightmares. It’s so irritating.
Is 100$ hour rate for freelancing intermediate level (working 6 years now) graphic designer/art director based inLA a lot? Just submitted my rate to a fairly large agency but slightly concerned my numbers looks out of range. I believe my work is worth the price tag but I worry I’m being unrealistic with competition from more senior level designers
Has anyone had a background check done by HireRight recently? Did they send you a notification when it was complete? I have an offer letter contingent on passing background and drug test so I haven’t put in my notice to my current employer but the contingent start date is May 17. I’m thinking I’m obviously going to have to push it back to give a proper two weeks to my current employer but I’m wondering if I will even get a notification when HireRight is done with my background check.
Hey everyone! I work for the US Army Corps of Engineers Real Estate Divison in Nashville and we are looking for a college student intern. If there is anyone interested in starting a career with Federal Government, please DM me! You can check out our website here: lrn.usace.army.mil
I have an offer to a commercial real estate company in hand. My current brokerage (residential focus) wants me to pay $3000 penalty since I’m breaking the contract and leaving. I’m financially struggling and 3k is a big number to pay now. The new job will be paying me $2000/month up until the first year only. Is it wise to pay or stick around in residential sales just to avoid that penalty?
what does it mean when the interview slot goes away in BCG candidate portal? did I get a ding and the recruiter will be letting me know
Is there a real difference between a $150 and $1,500 office chair? Want to prevent myself herniating my discs but also get something sustainable and built to last.
How do you handle busy season OT/utilization requirements while WFH, kids/family all home too? Feel like I’m on the computer round the clock while taking care of my fam, no sleep & just hittin 8hr/day
Curious, but why isn’t tax calculated inside TC? The money you are forced to pay to the IRS isn’t compensation since you can’t use it. TC should be the amount you actually get to keep as compensation for your work. An extreme example would be if someone had a 100% tax rate for some mysterious reason. Would they be able to claim 150K TC even though they take home $0.00 a month?
I’m curious what the comp is like at salesforce as a business development rep? Also, what’s it like working for this org from a politics side of things? Ie. i know they mandated vaccine, anything else?

I rarely have black clients but I do currently. I am amazed at white males can say ANY old lie and it is taken as gospel. I find it so sad
How about quarterly we pick a weekend and all meet in a different city to connect? Have a networking weekend with food, drinks, games, and knowledge transfers? Impactful weekends w/ a chill vibe
How do you cope with not feeling angry all the time? I’m tired of arguing with racists and listening to negative discriminatory coverage over Meghan Markle. It’s draining my 2020 good vibes 😪
Not sure if anyone who’s not in the ACN bowl will be able to read this (let me know if not, and I’ll send screenshots). But.. it’s concerning how many people don’t know what a micro aggression is. Not referring to OP who asked for examples, but the actual responses are so loud and wrong.
I love y'all. In case y'all needed a casual reminder that you matter even if your workplace doesn't reflect that.
Tender reminders - please take care of your mental. This week (this life) has been heavy. 🖤✊🏾
Watching the 20/20 Breonna Taylor special. It is so intense, infuriating and heartbreaking 💔
Anyone else watch? Any new thoughts/feelings about the situation?
To discuss: What is the harm in “burning a bridge” with someone / organizations that clearly don’t respect you or care about you? What are you afraid of by speaking honestly?
Go if you feel like the people you meet will be worth $200 (Looking golf buddies? People for drinks at the driving range? People to talk golf outside of a golf course?) or go if the experience alone is worth $200.
Would def go with you if it’s open to the public but follow your heart on this one
The normal price for an individual golfer is $400 so the $200 is a steep discount. It says
"Join us for our inaugural golf clinic for a 2-hour lesson on chipping, putting, and the driving range with the golf pro! This clinic is for novice/beginner golfers, or golfers who just want to practice their stroke. Registration includes ticket to cocktail hour and dinner."
So I also get food and drink at this country club in CT...
Oh that's a good idea
Is golf still really a thing in 2021? Go if you truly enjoy the sport. Not so much if you want to use golf as a tool for career advancement.
And where did you work previously where it was so important… Pierce & Pierce?
Based on the way that you framed your post, I’d say don’t go. There are other ways to network.
If you can afford it, just go. But if you're going to be annoyed with spending the money, then just don't.
Priority 1: would you even enjoy it
Priority 2: is there a significant networking benefit
If yes to 1, go
If no to 1, don't go.
There are other ways to network without doing things you won't enjoy.
Also consider the benefits of just doing something out of your norm, but not if you've done it and don't like it (which sounds like your case)
No actually I've never played golf before so it would be a new experience for me
What course is it?
Rock Rimmon country club in Stamford, CT. So it have to get there from Manhattan without a car. According to Google i have to take Metro North to Stamford and then take a Lyft for approximately $25 each way.
Then I suspect will probably have to buy special golf clothes...
Well what are you aiming to get out of it?
If you remove the golf aspect, how valuable is this networking opportunity for you? Would having connections at those companies be worth the $350+ it would cost you?
Do you have golf clubs or is the rental also included in the cost?
I didn't think about that but I'm doing the golf clinic/lessons so I'd think it would...
You dont really need special clothes per say. If you have a nice polo and some chino shorts or something similar and comfortable shoes that￼ should be about it. A hat for the sun is helpful.
Good grief SC… go to a department store (Macy’s, Kohls, Sports Authority)… back to school sales.
