Hi guys, I would appreciate some career guidance. I have done MCA, I was not able to secure placements after that.

It has been 3 years now I am here. My interest Area is Automation Testing Seleniun with Python. I have no experience to show for it. How can I switch for Customer service domain to IT. I am 29 years old.
Great quote form Mimi Slater of @cosbar on motherhood and work: “I don’t think my career path has changed because I became a mother. But, I think my approach to work has changed for the better. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to leave a 12-week-old at home, but I’m so glad I forced myself to get to work in those early days. It took me a while to get back into the swing of things, but now I think that being a mother is a total asset in the workplace. I don’t waste a minute of my workday. I’m better at juggling priorities, and I think I’m more empathetic, certainly towards other working parents.”
Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.
Today is my first day back at work (and first full day back in my physical office) after a few weeks off for parental leave. Needless to say, I am struggling to stay focused on anything other than wanting to go back home to my spouse and child. I know I shouldn't take an emotional temperature on day one, but it has been more difficult being back than I anticipated. Any tips for navigating the waters for the first day/week/month back?
I just received notification my laptop shipped! 😱 I feel like a kid in a candy store! I start my new position in one week and am equally petrified and excited.
Has anyone here used the "Read Scripture" app? It goes through the entire Bible and includes accompanying summary videos from "The Bible Project" (whose videos can also be found on YouTube). I love how it groups portions of Scripture and the videos are helpful for making meaningful connections with the text. I love these for myself, but they're super kid-friendly, too. Excellent support for your daily study. Enjoy!
Anyone have tips on culturally relevant (read Black) parent podcasts or parent preparation programs? I’m looking for something similar to New Mom Boss but for us
Has anybody availed term insurance policy (ICICI Pru)? Is it really worth taking? I got married last year, my wife is working and i have a single parent, who is a government servant herself. Seeing a lot of unfortunate scenarios around makes me scared at times and i am giving thoughts to such back-up options these days Please suggest?
Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this. Is not eating enough a cause for concern?
What’s a good first birthday gift for a girl? It’s my best friend’s baby’s first birthday. Thank you!!
Was told about this bowl by a fellow fish. 25F convinced I have undiagnosed adhd. Anyone get on meds later in life vs as a kid? I always had a billion micro thoughts but now it’s ten times worse
Just had my second MC. Back to back. I waited a full year for my body to recover and be in optimal shape. My bloodwork was perfect. I did all testing with a fertility doctor. Everything was good. I got pregnant easily.. yet, I lost the baby at 6w5D. Last year I lost the baby at 8w5D. I feel so defeated. My heart can’t take more losses anymore. My first pregnancy was a breeze.. 2nd and 3rd.. ended in tears and sadness.
So I started a new job in March and also got pregnant the same month. The new job is at a small firm and they never had a pregnancy so they do not have policies in place. Who do I tell? There’s one head admin person, two named partners one of which is generally MIA. So nervous about it.
How have people dealt with COVID and kids? I got COVID last week and had to keep baby home from daycare. Now they have COVID and have to stay home for at least another week. My husband barely worked last week and I can’t imagine another case week with a baby at home. I’m a C if that helps. I’m so overwhelmed and not sure what to do.
Hey guys… I’m a case worker in child safety and I’m someone who loves being outdoors/dies at a desk all day. I’m hoping to organise that at least once a week I can go to a cafe and catch up on all my case notes that need to go into the system. So far the only reason I’ve been told no is that “if you do then everyone will want to and then no one will be in the office” … how can I convince them that I work better out of the office and get this freedom & mental break for myself?
I feel that I can say without a doubt that the guy who just presented the exact same concept for the 3rd pitch in a row is literally history's greatest monster.
Does industry client base impact salary/is experience in certain industries valued more? I’m currently doing public sector and defence consulting but find it very chill yet still good money and would like to push myself. Will this background make it difficult to progress/apply to other firms?
Hello, I teach 4th grade at a Christian school. I have been teaching for over 30 years but I have been at this school for 2 years.

Recently, I was told that I am not getting a new contract for the new school year. I have to find a new school. I was told that I am not a good fit for the school.
Hi! I read once an article on two similar ideas have been awarded by the jury of Cannes because they were difficult and time consuming to do and had a small date difference to the point of not being able to be a copy. I believe it was written by a jury. Does anyone remember that? Do you know where I can find it? What ideas were these?

I have been offered a lateral move within my company to a role I (believe) I will be more interested in that will suit my skills more. However, I’ve now been offered a promotion in my existing Role, and have heard that this is a pretty big deal and almost fast track to Director. Am I mad to pass up a promotion for a lateral move that is unlikely to promote me for some time?? I’ve been in my existing role almost 2yr. Will it affect my future growth? I’m 30 so would love to be a director soon
