Have you ever accepted a job offer as a candidate(or had a candidate accept your offer of employment as a recruiter/hiring manager), and then rescind? I have 2 opportunities but the timelines are misaligned. I think I'm shortly getting an offer from one while I'm midway thru the process with the other. I don't want to end up in a position of saying yes but then getting a better offer and rescinding. I don't think I can ask for more than a week to think about it. Any advice on best way to handle?

Looking for anyone who’s experienced issues with merging two families together where there are varying levels of conservatism (religion, culture, women’s roles). I’m Indian-American coming from a liberal feminist family, he’s Indian coming from a more traditional family.

Our mothers on the other hand are two very outspoken women who come from very different mindsets.

Hey fish, I’ve submitted my GC and am awaiting employment authorization. Lawyers are expecting it in the next few weeks. Am I able to work remotely from another state before EAD comes in?

I agree he could have done much more while I was growing up, but it feels insulting to bring it up now when he only had certain careers he wanted me to follow, very rigid view on the world
