What is the best way to transition into the Tech field from the banking industry (5+ YOE). Currently have a Certified Scrum Alliance Certification and preferably want to become a scrum master but having a hard time finding entry level positions. Any insight would be appreciated.
Sunday wrist check with my favorite snack :)
I’m curious, how many of you battle depression, anxiety, or some other mental illness, but are afraid to get help because fear that there would be professional consequences, either from your firm or from your state’s bar association
Buying Tesla at this price?
My Lyft driver took almost 2 hours to get home home the other night. Plus she had to stop for gas and turned off the app which made me feel unsafe. I complained to Lyft and they gave me $5 credit....
Hiring a Social Media Manager. Looking for someone with strong lead generation and conversions background. Any suggestions as to best places to find these talents?
Insights on Gunderson and Fenwick?
FinTech vs. HealthTech?
I just learned that the Dutch gov is highly likely to do away with the 30% ruling. How much of a deal breaker is this for someone planning to move to the NL from abroad?
Would you have moved without it?
How do you expect it will impact you?
Looking to get some Charles Tyrwhitt shirts. Right now they’re 4 for $199, is that a good price or should I wait (idk if they always throw some kind of huge annual sale or something like that)?
Does anyone feel that work has suddenly gone from extremely difficult to a few steps past crisis? It’s never been this unrealistic before; 2020 and 2021 workloads were incredibly heavy but 2022 is somehow significantly more unreasonable. Anybody else experiencing this, agency side or in-house?

Praying for all the teachers in Georgia who have to quarantine right now! Sending all the good vibes to you! People who haven’t started school yet - do you think this will impact decisions?
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
Can anyone share some kahoot questions with me for 2nd graders? Share with me please. Thanks
Yesterday I got the motivation I needed. 2 of my former students looked me up and we FaceTimed. I had them when they barely spoke English and now they are in college! They also both thanked me for making learning interesting.
Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.
Of course the latest stimulus package doesn't include funding for states and, therefore, public schools. Are budget cuts inevitable?
I am having a hard time getting my 8th grade robotics class motivated. We are five weeks till school is out and a lot of the students are checking out. How do I get them back and motivated? I have tried rewards, referrals for those really naughty students, and pleading. Nothing seems to be working right now. There are a few and that really working hard but the ones that won't are disrupting the others. Thoughts?
Not sure if there are any Christian school teachers on here, but if so, I need some advice. I’m looking for an engaging year long bible curriculum for third and fourth grade.
What is a great chapter book to start at the beginning of the year as a read aloud for fourth graders?
Ever had an interview where you vibed really well with 5 out of 6 of the interview panel, but one person you just could not get a good read on…. And then got offered the job?? I’m looking at moving districts. It’s my dream job, my dream school and everything about it was FABULOUS, but one person on the panel - I couldn’t get a read on whether she liked me or not? 🧐😣
Congrats to Fl for having the stones to fight back. A lot of us are going to get sick or die when we have to back to school. No one is going to give a damn about us. The only ones that care about is us! It boils down to money not your life.
My district released their plan for the fall and it’s pretty much business as usual except that they’re “suggesting” students wear masks and there’s an online option (few will take it with how rural we are and only 1/3 have WiFi). With this being an unprecedented pandemic, do we have the right to demand hazard pay? I do NOT feel safe going back like this but I also really need my job.
What’s your go to lunch? Are you allowed to leave & pick up or get delivery, or do you always pack one?
Our governor just annouced that he will be implementing new state standards. How much change can I really expect?
