Got a healthcare hedge fund analyst offer with 150K base and up to 250K bonus. With comp increase potential but no clear path to be promoted to portfolio manager given the fund size. I have 6 YOE in consulting and a PhD in life sciences. Lifestyle is not much better than consulting. The hiring manager tried to convince me with “long-term upside” but of course cannot commit to anything given the fund is new. Thinking I should turn it down but wonder how others think

Fear of being laid off (at 50) is so all enveloping that it’s affecting my health and sleep. I have a pit in my stomach all the time. Sitting alone at home (single) knowing if I’m on the list I’ll never get hired again. And not enough savings for the next three years let alone forty. Decision makers: when you lay somebody off you are condemning them to years of unemployment.￼ fight not to do it.
Need help. If I resign today (11/30) with my effective date in 2 weeks, but they let me go today, will I lose insurance in December?
*HEALTH ADVICE* Since the pandemic started last March, I’ve lost a little over 30 lbs. A lot of that has come from me picking up running (3-4x a week, 15-25 miles) and other stuff (HIIT, Cycling, etc.) & usually working out 6 days a week. I’m still trying to lose another 15-17 pounds but for some reason am losing discipline and feel like I could always eat. My snacking is going horribly. Any advice on how to mitigate? What snacks are healthy and help control hunger?
Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so ￼easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.

Hi all, can anyone recommend or direct me to relevant resources for a career coach? Law was my second career and I have practiced mostly civil and enjoyed being an attorney for the past 12 years. But I have had some health and personal issues in the past two years, which led me to seek for a career opportunity outside law. I think I would benefit from professional career coaches at this point. I would appreciate any leads or insights. TIA!
