Significant other and I have been dating for about 6 months. We got in an argument 2 days ago and I just found out their grandparent passed away today. We haven’t spoken since our argument, but obviously want to be there for them. What’s something thoughtful/nice I can do to say I’m sorry and I’m sorry for your loss? Tbh I’m worried that our disagreement might be the end of our relationship, which I don’t want that to be the case.
Can someone refer me for Scrum master role?
Partners - how does your firm incentivize Partners to collaborate and bring the best of your firm's thinking to each account without getting into a turf war?
Why would a Partner at your firm reach out more broadly and pull in more (v. fewer)? At my current firm, I am seeing some information / relationship hoarding. I recognize this is common across the board but I am curious how your firm is tackling this institutionally.
Hello fish, need help. I recently lost $16k in a startup company and now looking to make up for the losses. Can you recommend any freelance sort of work that I can do to recover this money over a period of 6 months? TIA!
I just declined an offer via email but they followed up asking for a call, was it rude of me to have decline via email? I never had this happen before. Usually they just say thank you and good luck.
Hi! I have 6 years of experience in tax from b4 and am a CPA. I did depart from b4 but I’m willing to boomerang for the right opportunity. I want to pivot to sustainability, preferably consulting, to work on high impact projects with clients. Any recommendations on how to upskill to make this transition? Is my best bet to tackle credentials, learning, or networking? Any advise is greatly appreciated. Also, I’m open to networking on LinkedIn, dm to connect!
There was one day recently when I woke up incredibly anxious (chest pain, racing thoughts, etc) and was unable to focus on work / wanted to curl up and go to sleep all day to stop feeling so anxious. I feel like my work timing, communication, and output suffered due to the high anxiety but i didn’t feel comfortable telling my managerwhy I was being slower / less accurate than usual. What is a good way to deal with situations like this?
I've completed the salary discussion round with hr. However I haven't heard back from them. I have reached out and they say they'll get back to me soon. Should I be worried. I have not received the soft copy of the offer letter.

Dear everyone: I don't need any effing no-content emails distracting me or clogging up my inbox. Examples are "ok", "thanks", "thank you" or any such nonsense. **ESPECIALLY IF I WAS ONLY EFFING CC'D ON THE ORIGINAL EMAIL!** STOP IT! 😡😡😡
