We’re always on the go, but considering Naples, Florida for Christmas week and actually doing a true vacation - house with a pool, near a golf course, etc. any recos? Will we be too bored?
My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
Does anyone have regular flings? How do you keep it discreet? I love my partner but he’s not that into sex and it’s frankly not that great because he’s gained a lot of weight and doesn’t want to change his diet or exercise. I don’t want him to feel bad about his appearance. I love him regardless. But ever since I went on a vacation with friends and ended up having a hot make out session in a bathroom with some guy, I can’t stop thinking about it. I thought I feel guilty but I just want more.
Am a new joiner and wanted to know whether we have holiday tomorrow and where can we find the holiday calendar?

Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.
I’m worried. I have EAD. I need AP to go on vacation. Worried if I leave country I won’t get back in , is this rational ? I’m so worried
How do you go about using PTO outside of an actual vacation? Because of the tight knit nature of the teams I’m on it feels like I can’t use an actual off day when I need it. (Corporate/M&A for reference)
Sooo ready for the holiday party on Friday.
May the love of this Holiday season brings you all health, rejuvenation, peace, joy and alerted eyes to the return of the Messiah! John 8:32 KJV And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
A sign I need to fire some clients: when my out of office email reply hits the next reaction is to immediately call my cellphone. Nope. Call the number I left in the email to gain assistance. I cannot help you from jury duty, the doctor’s office, vacation, or anywhere else I might be when the auto replay directs you elsewhere.

Considering an offer at Amazon in Last Mile but the PTO leaves a lot to be desired. My wife & I travel several times a year and take ~30 days off. This includes flexing hours and unpaid PTO. Anyone work for Amazon & able to travel like this?
I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references

I can’t take it any more. I have been working for a company as an FTE since October, but started as a temp in March 2021, and I am done. The inefficiency is astounding and the ideas that i tried to put in place when I started and were turned down are now being brought up as “fresh ideas.” I’m done but can’t move on until I have another job lined up. Currently in Milwaukee looking for something hybrid or remote in TA or HR. Willing to share my LinkedIn or resume. Anyone interested?

Anyone who has/ heard of fbookers who successfully switched roles and gotten a promotion (L3 to L4)? Context I am planning a switch from analyst to data scientist from a non US location to US. However, L4 is needed for this jump (prob due to visa issues). With the current revamp in PSC cycle, I am not sure if I can successfully get promoted by next year and make the jump. To do so, I heard there needs to be 2 EE (for this half and next half). YOE 5, BASE 100K
Was considering relocating to NYC from my current office which is also HCOL area but relatively cheaper for personal reason. Have been working with a team in NY virtually serving a major client and the team likes me. Would it be possible to negotiate for a higher salary bc the living cost is gonna be higher? If possible, what would be the correct way to approach it?
