That's a good rule in general. Someone says no they're out of my life. There's too many people out there who are going to give me interest and make me a priority to waste time on those who won't.... At ANY stage of a relationship.

Disagree. People change, feelings change. Sometimes people say no initially cause they’re nervous, etc. We’re all grown ups here, we should be able to make responsible decisions

I asked a coworker out (who I don’t work with directly) a few years ago and they kindly declined i.e. saying “I’m busy this week because of X, Y, and Z” but never proposed an alternative week, so I got the hint. I thought they had been flirting with me so decided to make a move. It still haunts me. I will never be so forward with a colleague again.

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.

Hi y’all. I’m trying to plan my future. My goal in the next several years is to exit to general corporate strategy (unless something better comes up). Right now I’m aligned vertically and horizontally (strategy + a specialized field). If I stay where I am geographically it may be hard to stay in my current industry once I exit. So the question becomes, can I exit to an industry outside of what I’m currently consulting for or should I reposition myself within Accenture to be more of a generalist.

However, it’s a step down from a brand perspective and I’d mostly be working with older people vs. people my age. Thoughts? Opinions?
