This is all gold. Thanks everyone.

Do you have a lot of negotiating experience? Once you do you will not find it stressful.

Look for internal work. Nice and boring and usually less than 20 hrs of real work a week.

I’m an Analytics Consultant looking for industry roles as a data analyst/BI Developer. I’ve had a few recruiters and job postings ask directly for a dashboard sample. I obviously can’t give them anything I’ve worked on because of client’s proprietary data and NDAs. Has anyone run into this problem before? Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?

Anyone in tech - how do you handle junior Dev dudes who are simultaneously green, and too arrogant to admit they don't know what they're doing / won't admit a woman might know more than them. Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.

How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
