Trying to conceive while busting ass at work is exhausting. The appointments, emotions, heartache paired with work stress and commitments, not sure how people do this for years. I hope it’s worth it

I can say first hand... been there. Also the onset of raging hormones if you’re taking more aggressive steps. However, I will say that mental, physical and emotional multitasking will exist as a parent in our field so you’re just getting used to the feeling sooner. Best of luck! It’ll make you s better creative and better parent

Being a parent is even more exhausting. Just remember that you work to live not live to work!

How hard is it to make the jump from senior accountant (2 years as staff/senior in public and now 1 year in industry) to a financial analyst type of role? I definitely like my industry job more than I liked public, but I still feel like 1) I don’t love accounting and 2) I don’t do much outside of month end close, and I want something more challenging and something that has more upside.

I'm an ECD who turned to the dark side (Account!) to run a big piece of pharma biz. I love it, but I have an embarrassing problem: I can take good notes when I'm only a listener, but not when I'm connecting, ideating, strategizing--i.e., having a conversation—and I dont always have an AE present to help. I don't need a note taking app so much as I need to "think, listen, talk and write" all at the same time. I've considered Otter ai, but long-form transcripts seem inefficient. Help.

I’m feeling very neurotic about my third interview and need advice:

It’s been a whole day and the interview has not been scheduled and no one has given me the details on the call. I’m worried. I’ve been ghosted before and it is getting harder and harder to deal.
