No offense.. but if I consider someone as best friend then I wouldn’t share gift for her wedding with others. And even after sharing, $120 is too low. Regardless, try digital photo frame.


Gift card of $120


Chances are she already has this. Perhaps an experience gift or wedding / pregnancy photoshoot gift certificate?

How about helping them find a job in America and the gift of the American Dream

Give $11 cash, she will appreciate it than a shared gadget

Get a $200 gift card for Amazon India(watch for foreign transaction fee) and send it to her email. Or open a US wedding registry and get her something from that. If you have points then book a fancy hotel or experiences. If all that fails then ask her.

Cog1: I hope you don’t go as low as INR 11 cash instead of suggested $11

First year trainee here. Having the standard wobbles but generally surviving.

My question is - how can I tell if I'm doing well? More specifically, what common and avoidable mistakes (specific or general) do trainees make, and what attitude or actions impress you?

Recently overheard some associates complaining about another trainee and now I have the fear... I want to get this right. Thanks in advance.

American born woman with a very western mentality. 4-5 times in my career, have managed older Indian men (“conservative upbringings in the US and India) and have had a lot of issues where they have not wanted to take direction from me, flat out ignored me, and completely undermined me. (I know not all Indian men, but it is a pattern and I am not the only woman to experience it.)
