I want to cancel a second round interview that is scheduled to take place at the end of this week. I know I won’t accept an offer if extended. What looks worse- cancelling a few days in advance or rejecting an offer? If you think cancelling is okay, I would appreciate some excuses. Thanks!

Hi there. Selling my house in the boom market and want to invest all in the stock market so I can achieve FIRE. Looking at close to $1M in the sale. Any ideas on how to invest this huge sum in the market? Ideally would like to use the 4% rule and pull out $40K for rent each year. Would appreciate any tips on the best way to invest this large sum. I manage my brokerages on my own but not with this sum of $ and hence looking for pointers. Thanks in advance.

Let me know your thoughts.

How can I find product manager mentors? I have been a PM for 4 years, and it’s been difficult to build a network of PMs I can relate with or feel comfortable enough to be a mentor or advocate. Usually everyone is so busy.

Interviewed a candidate today. When asked about gaps in her work history, she said she left off a job because she didn't like her time at the "jew-run law firm" she was at before.

She said this openly in front of the tax director - who is Jewish.

The way my mouth dropped. Smh. She made other comments about how she misses the "culture" of Texas and wants to move back to that state eventually. She's in the older-end of Gen X for sure, but damn I thought that energy was dying out with Boomers.

Sometimes receiving advice can be difficult. My favorite was a practice leader telling me that I should never spend more than $5 on a bookmark... the reason is bc you could just use a $5 bill as the bookmark.

Do I go on or just let chaos reign in the comments?

No, I am not sure he knew about $1 bills. Like I said, receiving advice can be difficult.
