Earn enough to kick start a self-sustaining organization to accept underprivileged kids, give them vocational training and make them fill the skilled labor requirements of industry. Reduce the gap between education and industry requirements. Good for both - the children and the industry. Sounds utopian, but you strive for ideality to improve your reality. Will die a happy person, if I can do this.


Interested in helping out. Currently part of nonprofits and would be happy to connect you with them for advice/networking. Based in nyc.

Independent Filmmaker. After realizing that I wasn’t gonna make money with a film degree, I transferred into a Business IT degree and just decided to go for whichever job would make me the most money. I have been working for a year and plan on working for at least 2 more, all while teaching myself filmmaking. After the (at least) 2 more years is up, I’m gonna make the switch to filmmaking.

How to best use the points earned from Amex Blue Cash Preferred Card? I only have the Amex corporate card and dont have Amex Gold/Platinum. Would be it best to have the Platinum card also to combine the points?

The economy is up, stocks are up, housing market is up, etc. So why isn't advertising booming as well? Seems like it's been slow for a while.


Planning to go to Canada for first time stamping. Anyone with a similar experience before? How long did it take?

Got call from HR informing that my Technical round is clear in Wipro. Asked my Expected CTC and choice of location. I said 19 LPA ( I already have an offer of 17 LPA with 5 years of experience in Java backend).
Then she disconnected saying she will call me later. I didn't get it. No discussion, no negotiation, just 2 minute call.
Can anybody share light on this ?

I’ve somehow become the woman in every romantic movie who needs to decide between an amazing but super new relationship and an incredible job opportunity in a new city. WWKHD? (What would Katherine Heigl do?)


I love my in-house job for the amazing WLB but I really miss the recognition and validation you get from partners/seniors in a big law firm setting. Lawyers don’t seem to matter in-house. Do I need to get over this narcissist/ego mentality and enjoy my life instead of wanting to back to toxicity?


Anyone have a template in excel for daily task tracker. Usually switching from about 5 diff clients plus meetings and admin items. So looking for something that can track in excel when you start stop, pick the project back up again... etc. then calculate total hours for the day
