Get it touch with some recruiters and let them know you’re interested in in-house opportunities. Yeah, they’ll call you for that agency job that’s “not an exact match but really perfect, you gotta talk to them,” but it’s not a fruitless task.

Do you have an idea of where you want to work? I connected with people I knew from the different orgs I liked and found recruiters on LinkedIn.

Reach out to your former agency coworkers who have gone in house. They can refer you to positions at their company and/or punt recruiter emails to you (you get more recruiter emails for in house positions once you are actually in house).

This week I started a listen through my entire record collection from front to back. I’ll be doing this on workdays when I am in my home office. Did it a few years ago. Collection has grown a lot since then. But I’m not doing comedy and spoken word this time. Too hard to work to those. I expect it to take 4-6 weeks at least. Depending on how many calls I have.

Anyone dated a guy who's not emotional or affectionate but reliable and how did it work out for you? Example, you going through losing someone close, he's checked-in once on how you're handling it but was ready or prepared to make himself available to do a few you things for you when you reached out. I am torn between him not caring (which has come up in the past and his mind he gives me space to deal with things and is there when i'm ready) but him being responsive when i ask

My roommate is subleasing her room to someone we both never met. I never seen nor talked to this person as my roommate is in a rush to have her room rented out. I did not agree for basic security and precaution reasons so I asked her to sign an agreement noting that any negligence and deviation from our lease due to this sublease will be her full responsibility. But she doesn’t want to agree. What best to do?


I'm seeing a lot of teachers post that one advantage of remote teaching is fewer disruptions. While this is true, I also notice less engagement. I have students who are clearly looking down and doing something else (probably texting on phone?). Now that I can't ban cell phones in class, what can I do?
