Spelling and grammar by far. Formatting, fonts, bullets and all of that are annoying, but something about a sentence that was CLEARLY not read twice drives me crazy.

I have been in the tech consulting space for 5+ years and am SQL fluent, have managed dev teams and have a general understanding of engineering principals. However, I never really learned how to code - would a Masters in Software Engineering be worth it? Or is there a better option? I would do it part time and a significant portion of tuition would be reimbursed.

Does anyone else feel weird asking friends or past coworkers from another life for help on LinkedIn in joining their current company? I have many past coworkers (not really “buddy” friends) that I know that have since gone to other companies (that I’m interested in), how can I ask to get my resume through to them to get a foot in the door without sounding like I am begging? Is there a proper way to ask someone to “help” me?

I feel like a struggle with “Black and White” thinking where if someone does something that makes me really upset, they became ‘bad’ in my eyes for a while. I.e at work, if we are in a super stressful situation and a coworker is upset or has a annoyed tone with me, I’ll automatically be avoiding or kinda worried to be around that coworker for a while/can’t focus around them properly until they show a diff mood. I also do this in my personal life. Anyone with similar experience/ways to help?

Has your boss or any male coworker ever made an advance on you? My boss recently got divorced and has been pretty open about trying to get back out there. He's begun complimenting me more (not inappropriately) and yesterday he said "I bet you must have them beating down the door for you!" He's quite a bit older than me and I wouldn't feel comfy going out with him because of work anyway, so how do I turn him off of me?
