I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and have a 1 yr experience in tech industry. Earlier I have worked as a software associate for 6 months and currently working as a support engineer. Both positions I have been were on contract. I am eagerly looking for full-time job roles. I have OPT work authorisation, so I’m not eligible to apply for many entry level roles. I would appreciate it if you could refer me for entry level tech roles in your company.

Anyone have a manager that has a grudge against you? My manager missed something a few months ago which led to him explaining something wrong in a meeting with our other boss. I corrected him/gave him the answer (unthinkingly I'll admit) after our boss left, and since then he's had the worst attitude with me and only me. It's making work so awkward. What's the best way to solve this?

Fellow fish, I finally made a move from the US to Toronto. My employer was kind enough to approve my transfer. Any recommendations on buying a house in the city? I’ve currently shortlisted North York close to TTC transit. I have up to 750k budgeted, don’t have kids yet, so I’m ok with a condo in the city for now
Did anyone here apply for Canadian citizenship last year? Curious to hear how the progress on your application has been, specifically the time duration, i.e., when did you receive the AOR letter and how long after that did you receive the invite for the test and then oath ceremony?

I understand that processing times are longer than usual due to Covid and might vary on a case to case basis, but just want to get a sense of the average processing time.

Hi all! I was wondering if anyone has any doctor/clinic recommendations for egg freezing in nyc? Been looking at extend, nyu, Cornell, Columbia, kofinas, etc.
Does a great doctor and lots of physician interaction matter that much for egg freezing? I know it matters for IVF but curious if that weighs as heavily for the egg freezing process as well. The larger clinics I’ve talked to (nyu, CCRM, etc) seems to have less interaction with the doctor and are costlier while smaller places cont…

First year planning director that was promoted recently but underpaid, took a small pay cut like every other employee due to COVID so now I’m even more underpaid (under 120k). Very political/tense/toxic environment, culture of cutting corners vs doing what’s right, and I’m still putting 12/15hr days despite the pay cut. Feeling very stuck, underpaid, and burnt out. What should I do?

Anybody have a method or guidance for “guerilla” interviewing for research?
Our agency doesn’t do interviews as part of the planning process, maybe fairly common given timeframes for projects. Trying to figure out my personal planning process though and I get a lot out of talking to people who fit the target — however, I have no clue how to find the right people outside of people I already know. If you have experience finding interviewees on your own would love to hear how you go about it.
