100% hire a service to come out. We had an ongoing issues for I don’t even know how many months and tried everything but just couldn’t get them all and they kept coming back. Had a service come out and haven’t had any problems since, and it’s been about a year. Good luck!

Burn it to the ground. Just kidding, but seriously I’d consider moving and leaving everything behind if it happened to me- I’ve heard horror stories. 😱

Do you have pets?

We also washed our clothes every day and did twice daily flea combings with our pets. All a lot of effort but still better than a flea bomb/exterminator situation in my opinion

Flea bomb

I bombed my house with flea bombs from home depot. 1 in every room. I don't play with fleas. Repeated every 6 months until they were gone.

Sick of biglaw but I want to stay one more annual bonus season. I’m seriously burned out and would like to shift gears but I’d like to leave after ending my 5th year. I am potentially looking to just try and hide/keep my head low to avoid work as much as possible/“slack off” and wonder how possible is to do that for a year without getting fired? I aim to maximize vacay time, and just in general try to avoid any work I don’t absolutely have to do.

How do you approach an interview with your potential direct report where YOU are the one being interviewed? Some background: I’m 34 with 10+years experience but look like I’m in my mid-20s and have a pretty youthful (but not immature/ditzy) speaking voice. The potential direct report is male and looks like he’s probably in his mid to late 20s. Last time I was in this situation, the agency passed because they wanted someone with “more experience.”
